The game was commonly likened to the earlyThe Legend of Zeldagames, with reviewers likeRock, Paper, Shotgunwriter Alec Meer adding, Its a good (and compulsive) time, and impressively complete for a mere 48 hours of crunch.Boing BoingreviewerRob Beschizzacritiqued the game saying, A spectacular achievement in just a few hours of coding,Minicraftcasts the same spell as the real thing. It does, however, suffer from shallowness and grind. Theres not much to do except plow through the process of emptying each level in search of better ores.VentureBeatwriter Dan Crawley commented on the gathering system, saying, A simple but addictive approach to resource gathering helps give the game a whimsical charm not a million miles from that of its big brother.Matt BradfordofGamesRadarstated that, The project is about as basic as one can expect from a marathon coding competition, but the mere fact its actually a solid, playable game is a testament to Perssons skill and also pointed out that this could easily be a discount app for iOS or a PS Mini.
