App of the week: Minecraft – Pocket EditionNovember 27th, 2011
Popular indie game Minecraft has made it into the Apple iOS world. Minecraft Pocket Edition is an universal app for both iPhone and iPad. The game however is a scaled down version of the full version on PC/Mac. Minecraft Pocket Edition lacks the survival mode, has a different control using touch, only has 36 type of blocks and visible elements differences such as terrain, water and sky. Nevertheless, developer Mojang has mentioned that they are working to close the feature gap between the Pocket Edition and the full version.
If you’re not a fan, check out the free Minecraft Pocket Edition Lite to find out what the hype is all about. The Lite version has fewer block types and you can’t save your progress in the game.
