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
Great update but some issues
Love the update, the bats are brilliant. I spawned a bat but it turned into a khamakasi bat and kept flying into one of the cactus. Took me a while also to figure out the boat, I kept going around on circles! Some glitches though, when flying the background judders a little it's not smooth as it was before. It freezes a lot when building, digging, spawning and attacking things. You might hit a block several times and nothing happens. Not sure why but when attacking something, say a pig, unless you are square onto it, it does not work. I'm sure you guys can sort this out. Also would it be possible to have some instructions on how to use the new items and blocks. (Or for that matter the existing ones) as it takes a while with each update to work out how to use them. It took me ages to work out how to feed the chickens with grass seed and how to tame a wolf with a bone etc.
