Minecraft - Pocket Edition by Mojang - Android Game Review. This is a port or rendition of the famous desktop game to Android. In Minecraft, the player gets to play in massive virtual worlds, build and construct in them, mine for resources and interact with other online players in what is probably one of the most interesting and addictive massive multiple player game.

Features including construction, mining and using items like bow and arrows, armor and hand to hand weapons made of several kind of materials. Of course, interaction includes stuff like monsters, domestic animals and much more in this virtual world, though the Android version is poorer than the PC desktop version, and this is where some of the problems this Android game has come from.

Players who did not play the desktop version will be delighted, but what about those who had played the desktop version for years?

Mine craft is a world building and exploring game where the player gets to use the environment and interact with it to build things and then go out on adventures to access more resources. The more interesting of the game modes is survival, where the player builds buildings during the day time and has to defend them against various kinds of vicious monsters that come at night to demolish the player's creation and try to kill him as well.

The blocky graphics may not be for everyone but the sheer scope of the game, the freedom of choices and the ability to interact with other online players are some of the strong points of this game.

The game does have some faults, though. For those who come from the desktop version, the Android Minecraft is a simplified version, without some of the artifacts and the resources. It can be fun but mostly those people will wait for a future upgrade who would bring with it things like a fuller game mode and redstone, iron golems, villages and most of the things still missing from Minecraft Pocket Edition.

There are some bug and problems as our reviewers reported. Sometimes login fails and some you cannot interact with other people, though all are online and loggined into the the game. In rare cases spawning causes a player to lose his or her hard earned items and weapons. In other rare cases items turn out missing from chests though they were carefully collected and placed there ... A few players also reported some weird automatic changes between creative and survival modes.

Like we stated earlier, reviewers would have liked the game to have several missing things. Redstone, more monsters, and metal mines are some of these things.

In conclusion, this is not a bad game, quite the contrary. For all those new to Minecraft, the Android Pocket Edition is a great start. For those who already played it on a desktop, they might want to wait for several future updates.
  • Score: 4.0. Would be 4.5 when more desktop features will be made available.
  • Description: A world building and survival game where the player mines resources, builds structures, explores online multiplayer worlds and defends his creations against ravenous night time monsters. 
  • Good Points: Interactive worlds to explore. Very interesting with a great amount of features and things to explore (though less than the PC version).
  • Bad Points: Stability and rare buy annoying bugs.
  • Experience: .
  • Longevity: Medium. The desktop Minecraft players got bored rather quickly while the others stayed with it about a month.
