Minecraft Pocket Edition for iOS Review

Minecraft Pocket EditionBuilt specifically for iOS and Android, Minecraft Pocket Edition aims to fill the void for its fans from anywhere to anytime, but how much void will be fulfilled? The Pocket Edition offers players the chance to go mobile and enjoy the block-building, tree-punching aspect of the games design—but with some limitations.

The price tag on Minecraft Pocket Edition comes in at $6.99 (USD), which is a bit steep considering it does not have many of the great features Minecraft offers. Pocket Edition, however, is in Alpha stage version 0.1.2 so the possibility of added features further down the road is still unknown.

Minecraft Pocket Edition (Blocks)While not all core features of the Pocket Edition have been incorporated, you can still enjoy the games main characteristic of building and exploring. Players can decide from 36 different kinds of blocks to build with, including the much favored torch for those deep dwellers.

When generating your new world you can also take advantage of the Seed ability that was introduced in Minecraft a while back. Minecraft Pocket EditionOnce generated you can build every conceivable idea tucked away in your head or simply let your creativity side flow by toying around with ideas just for fun.

Probably the biggest selling point for Pocket Edition is the Wi-Fi feature where you and a friend can connect and build, or destroy, together. The Wi-Fi feature goes even further by allowing iOS and Android users to connect to each other’s worlds as the game is cross platform built.

Minecraft Pocket EditionIn comparison to Minecraft, Pocket Edition does not come with all of the bells and whistles. When in Creative Mode, the only mode other than Wi-Fi, PE does not offer any crafting abilities such as building your own tools, armor and other miscellaneous items that are deeply incorporated in the main version—thus no monster dangers, friendly critters and any other of those nighttime dangers.

One of the paramount features behind Minecraft was hunting monsters to gather up materials for recipes you were working on—and with the occasional run-in with Creepers, it added extra excitement and danger. (Ssssss, Boom!) Creepers, gotta love’em, right?
