This game increases spawns. Try easy then hard you'll notice quite a bit more, or at least i did.
I heard rare had less spawns... or at least, thats the wiki said somewhere... which is really, really silly.
This game is only difficult in specific places but especially in caves, when you're far away from the outside or something. Or getting attacked by skeleton archers when there's a lot of water, thats just so ridiculous.
But I do agree the game is too easy in general. I wish they would do more on higher difficulties, even have some means to break the shelter you are in or something. Its just way too easy to be safe.
Well I think the monsters aren't there to be the main obstacle. They are there just to motivate you to settle down and make a safe haven. The rest of the game is so you can build an awesome fortress while exploring the wide varieties of the game.
Also, have you guys ever been hit by a creeper? Those things are crazy.
If you downloaded during the weekend you may not have gotten the sound files. I had to redownload because I didn't. In any case it a was a free weekend for Alpha because of the server going down.
Minecraft got way too popular for this humble server. I've had to disable everything fancy to even get it to run. It went down on Saturday, September 18.
It will probably go back to normal on Tuesday, September 21. I hope.
If your launcher is giving you download errors, please update the launcher by downloading the latest version from this page.
The following things do not work at the moment:
* Registering an account
* Purchasing the game
* User verification for online servers
* Sounds and music for new players
The following does work:
* Actually playing the game
* Player skins
Until this all gets sorted out, I'm officially calling a "free-to-play weekend", or however long this will take to fix. You will need to have a paid account to play it later on when this gets fixed though.
If you want to keep track of the latest developments, please follow my blog. I also post stuff on my twitter, but there's a lot of nonsense there as well.

I built a little shelter into the side of a mountain, then I built a little building at the bottom of the mountain, then I built a cover for the steps from the side of the mountain to the bottom, then I build a wall around the shelter. So, at my mountain shelter I have four walls of varying depth protecting me. I plan on making some traps soon as well.
I do hate creepers though, things can blow up my work in seconds. Whenever I see them I go off and try to kill them asap, bows preferably but a hit and run sword attack works too.
I love this free to play weekend.
(Edit: Oh, and I also made a moat in front of the wall and a moat behind the wall. )
