Adventure mode is a game mode intended for player-created maps by limiting some of the gameplay in Minecraft, in which the player cannot directly destroy most blocks to avoid spoiling adventure maps or griefing servers. Most blocks cannot be destroyed without the proper tools (axe:wood; pickaxe:stone). However, players can still interact with mobs and craft items.
While it is possible to play a "regular" survival Minecraft game in adventure mode, it is quite difficult to do so. Most of the time is spent collecting food to replenish the food bar. Because players cannot immediately collect blocks, players usually do not have time to construct a shelter before the first night. For this reason, it is essential for players to search for NPC Villages or any other structures that are safe from hostile mobs. It is recommended that beginners enable cheats or bonus chests before creating a world.
Command blocks are intended for use in adventure mode gameplay.
- Most blocks cannot be destroyed by hand, and require corresponding tools (see below).
- Interaction with mechanisms as well as trading is allowed.
- Compatible in multiplayer.
- The gamemode is currently not accessible when first creating a world, but is through commands, by typing /gamemode 2 <playername>, /gamemode a (playername) or /gamemode adventure <playername>
- Use of Modding API.
 Uses and Tips for Adventure Mode
- You can use it as a useful way to partially protect your server from griefing, since blocks cannot be broken by hand in this mode, but can be broken with appropriate tools.
- Because of these breakables, you may want to keep tools out of the hands of griefers until you install a protection plugin.
- Adventure Mode can be used for adventure maps, and the breakables can add an interesting feeling to the map. If you only want your players to have a tool at a certain point of time, you can connect a pressure plate with /clear @p(or @a for all players) <itemID>.

|Adventure mode, formerly Dungeons and Levers, was announced by Notch on July 7, 2010. Notch hinted at four players to compete in Adventure mode. Adventure mode may include permadeath like in Hardcore mode, making it rogue-like in nature, and may have a quest system with randomly generated maps/quests.|
|1.3.1||12w22a||Added Adventure mode. Accessible through the cheats command, /gamemode 2 <playername> or /gamemode adventure <playername>. It is still possible to craft in Adventure mode both with the 2x2 crafting grid in the player's inventory and with the full sized 3x3 crafting table. The player can still interact with blocks with an interface, such as chests, dispensers, crafting tables, furnaces and brewing stands. The player can also go through portals, but cannot activate one by using flint & steel; flint & steel can be used to activate TNT.|
|1.4.2||12w34a||Certain blocks can now be removed and placed again with correct tools.|
