well, I was looking out of a hole in my dirt house. Then. Saw the creeper amongst a few zombies. So Im like, whoa a mutant zombie! I thought I was a good fighter by being able to kill a cow and it only causing me 3 hearts of damage. :smile.gif: So I hit it with my sword and then there was a hole.
So my first reaction was to run into my house (or rather lightly jog, being that this was in Alpha), close the door and hide in the corner until I tried to find the best way to kill it without it exploding.
