Picture of Minecraft Survival
Minecraft is an adventure survival game where the world is sculpted by your whim. Best described as digital Legos, you can build anything your imagination can come up with. There is more to Minecraft than just building though, dig deep to find precious ores to craft new objects, and be afraid of the dark, for creatures appear who want nothing more than to see you die.

Materials needed for this tutorial:
--Computer (Mac or PC)
--Your imagination!

Time Required:
--Anywhere from 20 minutes to the rest of your life.

Step 1: Buy Minecraft

If you do not already have Minecraft go here http://www.minecraft.net/ and buy it already. If you want to try it before you buy it, you can try the creative version of the game where there are no monsters, but you can still build stuff.

Step 2: Making Your New World

Picture of Making Your New World
Before you can get start playing Minecraft, you need to make a world. Just click on the Create New World button, Enter the name for your world and click Create New World. This makes a new and random world for you to start in.

Step 3: Getting started in your new world

Picture of Getting started in your new world
Where you start off in your world is your spawn point. If (when) you die, you will start back here unless you craft a bed and use it to reset your spawn point.

Look around using your mouse to take in your surroundings.
Use W,A,S,D to move in the world.
Left click to use the item currently held in your hand. R
Right click to place a block if you are holding one in your hand, or to interact with something in the world.

The boxes on the bottom are part of your quick access bar. Put items and tools in these for quick access to them.
Above the quick access bar is your experience bar. You get experience by killing monsters.
The hearts above the quick access bar is your current health, when it reaches zero you die!
The row of meat to the right of your life is your food meter, when it is full you slowly regenerate life, but when it is empty you lose health.

Actually to be honest it is legal do get a copy of minecraft for free. in fact Notch said so himself. However he did say that if you do have the money to afford the game then you should buy it :)

OMG, guys, I've just got my free Minecraft giftcode!

>> Minecraftgiftcodes.me <<
You sir, are the reason people don't let others comment on minecraft related things. Someone starts spamming "Giftcodes" and then they disable comments. Do Not DO THIS again!.
on minecraftforfree.com you get all things including monsters
That isn't legal.
it is a trial version that the creators put out so people can try the game out before purchasing it
The Creeper will huff and puff and blow your castle down!
Stupid creepers sneak behind me and blow my house up

Heh. Yeah, getting lost sucks mightily... I got so lost in one world that I ended up trying to dig straight up, to find the surface... not such a good idea, since I dug up into the bottom of a deep body of water... and drowned before I could get out... So, I started leaving torches and signs underground... always leave torches on right hand side of walls, so when you get turned around, follow the torches out, keeping them on your left. Also, making signs helps a lot, too... I put them in reading: THIS WAY UP^^^
sweet guide dude, getting game pretty soon, going to be a great help, awesome guide
It is Axe, not ax.
