Minecraft: Pocket Edition App Review

Posted on April 24, 2012

Minecraft is an example of how independent games can become successful through sheer word of mouth. Its developer, Mojang, brings the block-building experience on the go with the Minecraft: Pocket Edition for iOS and Android.

When the app first came out, it received negative reviews, mainly because many of the elements found in the PC version were absent such as item crafting, resource gathering, and even enemies. Instead, players are given access to 27 unique types of blocks as well as a few other items like torches, flowers, and mushrooms. The aim is to build your realm around the randomly-generated world, putting up structures and buildings as you go. With a game that lets you do nothing but build stuff, you know this is bound to get old fast.

Thankfully, updates were provided to make the app close to the original. First, Survival Mode is enabled on version 0.2.0, wherein you would be able to build by day and hide from or fight against monsters. The catalog is also expanded to include doors, fences, and gates. There is also the Creative Mode that strikes out monsters and environmental damage, but enables players to fly from one spot to another.

And just recently, version 0.3.0 introduces item crafting, another element found in the PC version. You would be able to create new items and materials. There is also the inclusion of cows and chickens into the mix. This update, however, is only available to iOS as of this posting. Looks like Mojang is committed to bringing the Minecraft experience on mobile devices. We simply just have to be patient.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition is now available on iTunes App Store and Google Play for $6.99, complete with free-to-download updates.
