Mine Blocks 2 is a 2D block-based adventure game. While it can be compared to games such as Terraria and Minecraft, it has it's own premise and gameplay. In this game, you are in a vast (infinite) world, forced to conquer nature in order to live. Gather the resources hidden within the planet to create and do anything out of the unlimited possibilities. The game modes will include survival, creative, story mode, and multiplayer.

It is finally time... for the biggest Mine Blocks 2 update ever!! (It's free, in your browser!)

Play the latest version!

After 2 years of development, Mine Blocks 2 0.7 has finally been released! Since the last update, the game changed so much that it looks almost completely different! Here's what's new (the complete changelog is below):

Infinite Worlds!
Walk on forever without ever hitting a border in this brand new world generator! There are dozens of new blocks, and a total of 11 biomes to explore. The world is also really deep, so there is plenty caves to mine in. You can find bonus chests in caves filled with loot!

Realistic dynamic lighting!
No longer can you see all the blocks at once - Mine Blocks 2 now has an awesome lighting engine! It supports sunlight, moonlight, and differently colored light sources (lava, torches, glowing flowers, etc). In the settings you can choose what pixelation style you like the best. It looks so nice!

Inventory - crafting, cooking, chest...ing!
You can now open your inventory and move things around! The crafting interface is unique, but very simple - combine different items to create new things! The campfire was added to introduce cooking and smelting. Chests were also added to help when your inventory gets full of blocks and items.

Many new blocks and items!
With the introduction of infinite worlds and an inventory/crafting system, there MUST be a lot of new blocks and items! Well there is! The full list is in the changelog below. Are you up for the challenge to make the biggest, most expensive survival house ever!?

So much more!!
Definitely read the list below with all the features!

That's okay! Mine Blocks 2 will have support for multiple languages. At the very beginning, I'm supporting English, Spanish, Portuguese, and German.

Assuming the glyphs all work in the font, that should be no problem in this game. I'll need to find a Russian translator first, which I'll start working on probably near the end of alpha or during beta.

Hi! Yep I'm still working on it. There are only a dozen things left on the to-do list before the next alpha update is ready. I don't have an ETA yet, but I'll be posting updates here, on Facebook ( Facebook.com ), Twitter ( Twitter.com ), and my website ( Zanzlanz.com ) when new information is available. :)

The features of the next update so far are: infinite worlds, saving/loading, lighting, day/night/sky, crafting/cooking, a working inventory, tools, background/foreground manipulation, object entities, and an improved chunk renderer.
