Paper Minecraft is an adventure game that brings the legendary Minecraft into a 2D world. Choose your character and preferred game mode to jump into the fun! This Scratch game features the classic survival and creative modes from the original Minecraft game.

How to Play Paper Minecraft

If you’re on this page, the chances are you’ll need little introduction to how Minecraft works. The game is a staple of every modern gamer's diet. Paper Minecraft is pretty much the same but set on a 2D plane like the game Terraria. If you really have never played Minecraft before, here’s how it works…

Creative mode

An unlimited supply of tools and building materials is available in creative mode. You can fly around the biomes, exploring various terrains like woods, water, rocks, and fields. This game mode is perfect if all you want to do is build cool stuff and share your creations without worrying about surviving.

Survival mode

Survival mode requires skill and ingenuity to survive. You start with nothing in this mode and must utilize the natural environment to protect yourself from monsters that roam the night. Farm animals and crops for sustenance, mine resources to create weaponry, and build defenses to keep yourself safe.
