Minecraft for Petit Computer! I have spent about eight months in total so far on the project, and am currently in the Beta stage of creation. This was originally called Raycraft, but I changed the name to Minecraft DS after Alpha 1.5. I got the raycaster and raytracer engines from Calc84maniac, but I am working toward making this a Minecraft clone in PTC.


I am aware that there have been no updates in a long time. I am having a hard time getting inspiration to work on the project. I am working on survival inventory (breaking blocks adds to your inventory, and placing removes it from your inventory). After this, I'll fix up a few final things (like tools, live multiplayer [don't ask how I'll do it; it's a secret], languages, etc.) and release the FINAL version to the public!

Thank you for your understanding!


  • D-Pad Up and Down - Walk forwards and backwards
  • D-Pad Left and Right - Turn
