Editors' Review

A unique adventure game that borrows elements from action, role-playing, and building games, Minecraft -Pocket Edition stands out as a successful stripped-down mobile version of a computer/console bestseller, striking a fine balance between content and portability.

Pros

Infinite worlds: This new release expands the Minecraft Pocket Edition's 3D Lego-like randomly generated worlds to infinity, making exploration just as exciting as in the full PC version.

New mobs, blocks, and items: Endermen are finally here! Also included are wolves (as pets), slimes, silverfish, villagers, mushrooms, granite, packed ice, beef, dark oak trees, and many more items, which significantly enhance the building aspect of the Creative Mode.

Better Survival mode: The fresh content and many performance and gameplay improvements like an easier to use inventory/crafting screen and a higher spider spawning rate at night make the Survival mode more challenging than before and can reignite your passion for the game.

Cons

Time waster: With this game, as with the original, you have to invest many hours before you can become a master crafter and build impressive structures and defeat the meaner monsters.

Somewhat awkward controls: While overall the developers have done a good job making this pocket edition easy to play, there will be moments when you fight monsters, gather resources, and even build things when the touch controls will make you sigh and long for the accuracy and speed of your mouse and keyboard.

Technical issues: We ran into graphical glitches, lag, and even a few crashes, in addition to multiplayer connection errors, especially when trying to join the official game servers. These will no doubt be fixed in the near future.

Bottom Line

If the limited worlds of the previous version have discouraged you, now you have no excuse for not trying the new Minecraft - Pocket Edition, an irresistible game that has become almost as spectacular as the computer/console version, and that takes you as far as your creativity can go. That said, if you haven't played Minecraft before, we recommend that you first try the version available for online play before spending $6.99 on this app, just to be sure the Lego-like graphics and relentless resource gathering won't put you off.
