About Minecraft

Editors Review
Minecraft Pocket Edition was once a mere sampling of the PC version's gameplay, but recent versions of this mobile survival game have brought it very close to the full game. The survival mechanics are almost completely carried over now, with a day and night cycle, farming, dungeons, and even the Nether having made their triumphant debuts on the mobile game. Minecraft Pocket Edition is a great game as it is now, and with the frequent updates filled with new features always coming by, the only way is up.
Minecraft is an open-world survival game developed right for Android.

Minecraft throws players into an endless world, where they have to defend against monsters, gather resources, and craft items to survive.

Players will also explore caves, dungeons, and even a vast alternate world called the Nether. Along the way, they'll have to use their creativity to build anything from simple shelters to complex mechanisms, in order to make the most out of the world.

The game also allows players to enter Creative Mode, where they are given invincibility, free flight, and unlimited resources, allowing their imaginations to run wild as they build whatever they want.

Minecraft supports cross platform play up to 10 people, anytime on Realms, a private server that you can try and use for a limited for free. You can also play this game with Xbox Live account.
