    Although there are some flaws with this app, it still stays true to the core concept of Minecraft.

    There was a time when saying 'Minecraft' was synonymous with punching and dropping blocks in to a virtual world; now it has far more depth thanks to continued updates and community developed modifications, but Minecraft - Pocket Edition features none of these and simply replicates what is already available online for free.

    Not really worth the price in its current form, unless you're a die-hard fan of the Creative game mode of Minecraft. And yet it still manages to be a recommendable series, as there's something zen-like about just building to your hearts content.

    Minecraft: Pocket Edition misses the mark. Without enemies, item crafting or resource gathering, the building experience will quickly bore most gamers.

    Minecraft: Pocket Edition could potentially be an awesome thing someday. Until that day comes, though, it is best purchased by the curious, the affluent and the hardcore fan.

    Minecraft - Pocket Edition is disappointing, featuring neither mining nor crafting.

    This iOS version, alas, is akin to the original's early iterations. You're only offered the sandbox creation mode, in which you potter about a vast landscape, placing blocks to build stuff. Recreate your own house; make a fairytale castle; spell out 'help, I'm bored' – the choice is yours. And that's basically it.

    The current Minecraft PE is much better now,it contain more feature,block,item and mobs.It run very smooth on my phone even everything is setThe current Minecraft PE is much better now,it contain more feature,block,item and mobs.It run very smooth on my phone even everything is set to highest.There is something I don't really like is update is coming out very slow.Even update is slow but when a new update is come out it contain lot of new feature.

    Minecraft PE is much better comparing to previous versions,it is worth to buy and it need given 10/10 score.

    Im sad to see the 2 poor reviews even one from a critic who should be informed that this is not the final release of minecraft iOS pocketIm sad to see the 2 poor reviews even one from a critic who should be informed that this is not the final release of minecraft iOS pocket edition. It even says v0.1.2 ALPHA just like normal minecraft this will have updates with new features, they can't simply press a button to transfer from pc to iOS. He mentioned it some time on twitter or his blog. Expand

    In November 2011 we were treated to Minecraft: Pocket Edition. A Minecraft game that had almost nothing to relate itself to Minecraft exceptIn November 2011 we were treated to Minecraft: Pocket Edition. A Minecraft game that had almost nothing to relate itself to Minecraft except for the blocky world. Almost two years later. Minecraft has reached version .7.2 Alpha and I'm happy to say that this game definitely feels like Minecraft. There are better controls, monsters to hide from, ores to mine, items to craft, houses to build, and a sky to look at. Still, this doesn't mean that things aren't missing. Caves are nowhere to be found,so resources are harder to gather. Red stone nerds can't make any red stone machines. The list of omissions is still endless. Still, that doesn't mean that MCPE isn't fun and addicting. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I love minecraft I have it on the PC and the PS3 and I have it on my ipod. The PE is........ not the best best minecraft game. The survival gets really boring, creative is fine but it does not change from day to night.
    So over all I would not prefer this game.
