Not as good as console or pc
This was the first minecraft I played, and after getting used to it, I loved it. I then went on to watch youtubers (won't tell you who) who played minecraft on Xbox, and I didn't have a clue what they were talking about. All this redstone, skins, the nether. I got used to watching them, and understanding what they were doing. However I still didn't know why it wasn't in pocket edition.
And before you say "there is a nether, what's he talking about?" It's about 10 blocks by 10 blocks.
And I know there's redstone dust, but no iron doors or levers or Pistons. I would have thought mojang would have wanted to make a better name of themselves with this game.
Apart from the fact it's only about half the real minecraft, it's still a great handheld travel version of the game and could get you playing it for hours. If you are a major Console or pc player who's going on holiday and wants to play minecraft, buy this. But, if you want the works (redstone, skins and the nether and end) don't waste a good fiver.
I write this part of my review on June 4, 2015, day after 0.11.0 came out and I take back all I said before apart from about redstone and nether. You now have skins and can change game mode. I LOVE MCPE
Redstone & bugs
Right the update 0.11.1 has come out for iOS i don't know about any other devises but it has come out woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!.
But any way there is a bad thing about the boats they finally have boats yes...
And! They have.. Paddles omg yes they do and apparently they can hold two passengers you and animals yes animals but i don't know about other players tho. I have tried the boat and the paddles work and you control the paddles with two arrows. The way they work is when you use the left paddle you turn right and if you use the right then you turn left and both together you go forward. So they have done a good job with that. The bad points about the boat is it is soooooooooooo SLOW!!!!!!! WHY? you can swim faster than paddling the boat. ?it this a bug or is it on purpose so the boat is not OP. If a bug can you fix plz. Oh and i only just got to do all that cos the game is just bug bug bug sometimes you cant even load the game it just lags and goes to the home page of your device so plz fix too
Wow! Mojang have created a game that beats all other games! This world famous game is simple to understand yet hard to put away! It is impossible to get bored of this game as there are so many different things to explore! A game for creative minds and great for flowing out imagination! I bought this game relentlessly after my friend demanded I got it and since then I have not regretted it once!
Yes it is £5 which is expensive for a game but this is no ordinary game!
Every time I think that the game couldn't get any better I am proved wrong with yet another fantastic update! The multiplayer function adds a whole different level to the game and the servers really bring it to life! I would recommend this to anyone. Old or young!
Mojang, if you have the time to read this review please read this section of the review:
If I could improve anything in the game I would allow the player to open and put things in chests in Creative. This would be great as you have just introduced the ability to change from creative to survival and this would be awesome for people who want to have a head start when heading into the dangerous survival world of for people who can't be bothered to collect everything themselves.
I know that it would ruin the point of survival but it is an option still and people who don't like it can just forget about it as it is a little thing !
Overall an amazing game that definitely deserves a five star!!
