Minecraft - Pocket Edition
The popular Minecraft game in a version for your phone
Minecraft - Pocket Edition is a great way to experience the fun of the PC version of Minecraft while on the go. The software is slightly scaled back compared to the full version, but the app is totally free. The user interface has been upgraded to be compatible with smartphones.
There are a few features of the full game that are left out of this free version of Minecraft - Pocket Edition. For instance, the full game includes a total of 36 block types for players to use, while this version only includes 18. Despite having only half the available blocks, players can still use the system to build stunning structures.
Of course, there are a few drawbacks to using this free version. One of the main negatives is that it is impossible to save structures in between building sessions. That means that you can't go back to the app and see what you built last time, and the app resets every time it is closed.
Minecraft still enjoys a lot of popularity, and this free version is still supported and will be updated as the full version of the game continues to advance. There are more than 50 million people in the world who still play Minecraft on a regular basis, and the recent advances in the game have brought cross-platform compatibility. Microsoft now directly owns the rights to Minecraft, and they will surely continue to progress this amazing game platform.
Beyond the limited block availability and the inability to save structures, the Pocket Edition of Minecraft is essentially identical to the full version.
- Identical graphics to the full game
- Completely free to play
- Half the available blocks of the full game
- Can't save structures in the game
