    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.

    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

    It's essentially the same as the alpha version was on the pc version. They have said they would update this game in the future like they didIt's essentially the same as the alpha version was on the pc version. They have said they would update this game in the future like they did with the pc version as well. It's a start and it is still amazing to play any form of minecraft on a phone. It is only fair to be patient because Notch isn't like other developers. He could have released this game in a year or two when it was perfect, but chose to release it now and support it with updates. Expand

    I played this before the real PC version. But one thing: flint and steel is useless. it can only be used with TNT. Creative mode sucks. noI played this before the real PC version. But one thing: flint and steel is useless. it can only be used with TNT. Creative mode sucks. no crafting, no nether reactor working, NO TNT?!?! Creative is only useful in building. Survival is way better. If you want a better experience, crafting, tnt, flint and steel useful, more stuff, GET THE PC VERSION. It is worth 20 bucks. People say "The graphics are so crappy, the game is so crappy." IGNORE THEM! That is not a big deal. It is still good. Expand

The current version of this game is barely Alpha, more like Indev. Just like Minecraft PC, you wander around and break blocks, and build things, but what this game lacks are Redstone contraptions, it has a very narrow selection of building materials, there are no caves, or infinite worlds. Becomes very boring quickly.

    I look foward to the 0.8.0 Update though. I will continue to edit this review as the game progresses. A score of 5 is currently what the game is worthy of, as the game becomes better I will continue to raise its score.
