Paper Minecraft, a sandbox (world-building) clone of the popular Minecraft series made with Scratch, gives the player all the benefits of Minecraft in 2D environments.
As with Minecraft, the player can find their ultimate gameplay in Survival, Peaceful and Creative modes. In Survival mode, for example, they need to use their environment to protect against threats. They might build defensive areas, grow crops and farm animals for food and craft weapons after mining the relevant resources. To make tools, the player can dig up a tree to collect wood, add it to their inventory, transfer it to a crafting area to make planks and then proceed to make tools.
Of course, they can go one step further and create their own world in Creative mode as well! The player can load worlds created by other players to provide them with inspiration.
