Minecraft hits the Android and iOS store and at only $7.50 it’s sure to have millions playing on buses, trains, plains and even toilets.
Minecraft was possibly the biggest game to never be released (until recently) however with the full retail version on shelves only days ago its popularity is set to skyrocket. Not only are you now able to get the full PC release but you can get the Pocket edition and soon console editions too.
The pocket version will not replace the desktop version as it really is just a building sim at this stage. The building side looks full of function and features for the hardcore block builders out there, however without the danger of zombies or any other enemies the game leaves little enjoyment past just building.
In the pocket version you can download world’s or save your own for others to play, the game has been sped up to allow for quick mobile play with action buttons now being included for quicker results. The App store lists the below functions also.
* Randomized worlds
* Build anything you can imagine
* Build with 36 different kinds of blocks
* Invite and play with friends to your world (local wireless network)
* Save multi-player worlds on your own phone
All in all the game looks good for any hardcore that just must have the newest Minecraft title, but there are other games on the App Store that clone the PC version a lot closer that this does.
