The Latest version of Minecraft – Pocket Edition 0.9.0 is update on July 1, 2014 . The pitch for Minecraft: Pocket Edition is simple and promising. It’s Minecraft… on the go. The joy of adventuring, collecting, and building, right there in your hands. Pocket partially delivers on the promise, but if you’ve played the other versions, this one feels more restricted thanks to its small world, limited enemies, and an overall lack of features. Minecraft’s randomly generated worlds are composed of big blocky cubes of dirt, stone, sand, and dozens of other materials. The blocks are colorful, distinct, and memorable thanks to simple and charming textures. What makes them great is how they enable creativity. Piece by piece you’ll rearrange and refine the pristine, primordial world into whatever you want. It could be a seaside home, a sky bridge, or any other creation you can envision. This is a power we rarely see in games, and the freedom it offers is, at first, daunting. In Survival mode, each block must be chipped at and collected by hand from an open world. What initially feels like a tedious task becomes the basis for Minecraft’s rewarding core gameplay. I had to gather, transport, and place each piece of my home myself, so it was impossible not to feel a fierce sense of pride and ownership over it and all my other creations, big and small.
When the sun goes down, Minecraft’s bad guys come for you. They are scary and dangerous… for maybe an hour. Even less once you obtain the simple items needed toward them off. This feels immediately disappointing. Why have enemies at all if they become laughable in no time? But later, as my ambitions for building outgrew my resources on hand, my quest for new materials drove me deeper underground. Down there I realized those same enemies that are easy to defeat on the surface felt far more challenging to fight in the confines of a rocky corridor where they could ambush me. The amount of danger I was in was tied to how far from my base I roamed, which keeps the game tense and exciting at the right times. Unfortunately, Pocket has only a fraction of the enemy mobs available in Minecraft proper, and their absence (especially the Enderman’s) makes the experience less dangerous. Every enemy can be killed simply by swinging a weapon and running backwards. At least we don’t have to fight any flying enemies with the touch controls, which are usable but not great. I like the way it auto-jumps over block-high obstacles. Pocket’s worlds also feel too small. One of the strengths of the PC version, for example, is that its wide open areas let you build as wide and far as you’d like. In Pocket, if you walk too far in one direction (which isn’t difficult to do), you’ll bump into an invisible wall. At least in the console versions the invisible wall bordered an expansive sea. In Pocket, all you see is a blank abyss. The world size traps you. It contradicts the rest of Minecraft’s mechanics. It also makes multiplayer less desirable, as there’s less room to spread out and build.
Crafting is a simple process. Once you have the required materials, you just tap on the item you want and it enters your inventory. There’s no need to drag items across a touch screen into specific arrangements. It feels fast and appropriate for the device.Creative mode, the popular option that gives players unlimited access to Minecraft’s items, is Pocket’s biggest draw. It is, essentially, a digital tub of LEGO. If you want to build something, you don’t need to put in the time digging underground. It’s more immediately gratifying. After starting a new building project in Minecraft, I often think about it through the day. Instead of waiting to get home, Pocket lets you make adjustments to your creations whenever you find time throughout the day.
