Gem Collector, Perhaps the Most Complex in-Minecraft Game Ever Conceived [Video]

Minecraft has already proven itself to be a surprisingly robust platform for tinkerers to create computers and even games within the game world itself. Now, Minecraft experts Rezz and Psycho_ewt have brought us Gem Collector, a shockingly robust maze game built entirely inside Minecraft. In the game, the player moves around an enormous NES-style controller, which moves the player on the screen. Gems are collected, lives are lost, and sound effects are played. It’s amazing to watch, but it will surely make all of your own Minecraft creations seem a little lacking.
