Minecraft Pocket Edition
It's not Minecraft's, it's mine
Minecraft Pocket Edition Review
by on October 25, 2011
Minecraft is one of the biggest gaming curios of the last five years. Borne from what made (and still makes) retro games like Theme Park and SIM City great, the game offers users an open world to build upon and, hopefully, thrive within.
Looking like a Lego-based wonderland, Minecraft Pocket Edition sees the game make a fairly successful transition to handhelds, keeping the same playability albeit with some irksome controls.
For a start, you have to remember that this game is based on a game that itself is still in beta. This is great for Android users wanting a 1-up on their iOS rivals but it does mean that you have to play a game that is a little rough around the edges. Thankfully, though Minecraft’s ingenious gameplay does mean that clumsy controlling doesn’t mar what is a decent game.
Like its bigger brother, Minecraft Pocket Edition is based around building. You are given an open world to inhabit and build the best contraptions you can. To do this you must use a virtual d-pad, which does annoy. The controls should be easy but when it comes to precision, it is difficult. This is a game for those with patience, however, and those who give Minecraft time will be infinitely rewarded.
