Problems With The Update?
I've seen many reviews saying the controls are messed up, screen is bent, and can't sleep because of monsters? For the controls if you want the "old" style with your finger, turn OFF split touch controls. If you want it like the Xbox/console in general, turn ON split touch controls. The screen "bending" problem is because you may have changed the FOV (Field Of View) setting. It is a slider, so it may be hard to get it back to normal. I do think that is the only thing they should change. I myself accidentally changed it and found it a small bit weird to get it perfect like it was. As far as not being able to sleep because of monsters, you may have a hole under your house where monsters are spawning? Maybe on top of your house or anyplace like that. I'm not really sure because it has never happened to me as a glitch. My opinion on this app is VERY high for a PE of a game made mainly for PC/Console. They integrated the option for controllers, giving us console players (or people with big hands) a way to play easier and more comfortably! They have done a great job making this game seem like it isn't "lagging" behind the Xbox version. That being said, we still are missing Pistons, lamps, and some other redstone things I believe. I love this game and I believe whether this is your first time playing it, or if you've played it on any other platform you will probably like it.
New Update Has Some Problems
Okay, Minecraft is an excellent game. I don't play it all the time, but when I do it is very fun. Unfortunately, the new update has some drawbacks. The new controls are kind of annoying, since I wouldn't usually use sneak functions anyway. I think that there should be an option for old controls, like there is an option to go to old worlds instead of infinite worlds. I also think that you should be able to choose whether or not you have the little plus sign in the middle of the screen that destroys blocks. I liked it better when the selector of blocks was where your finger was, but the plus sign seems to be turning on randomly. There should be an option for that. I did try to see whether I could change the controls back by going to controller settings, but those were hard to understand as they didn't tell you which buttons had which numbers. Finally, the general vision for the screen has some issues. Instead of the normal view around you, when you look around it seems warped and strange, and the areas to the side of you are weirdly bent instead of normally straight like how Minecraft used to look. That seems more like a glitch, but if it isn't there should be an option for that as well. Other than that I like the update, but Minecraft shod consider making some of these things options instead of giving us no choice, for people who liked the old way better.
Mojang is trying his best, and I can tell.
Why can't I sleep at night when there are no even monster? I mean I try sleeping in my house but instead of staying in bed it takes a millisecond to reject bed, and that infact not only it irritates me but also infuriates me, please fix this. Also one more thing, it would be nice if there would be added support for wireless controllers. If you make this update for those 2 thing my rating will in fact be 5 stars. And I will be enjoying this game even more
Update: the new controllers and the support for wireless controls makes this game so much better and also things that I didn't expected such as the inner world. Now I love this game even more. The only advice I'd give is fix a bug( minor bug ) it rains even inside the houses and rain while inside whether in a cave or the underground mansion that I created.
About the controls: the new controls aren't any bad at all in fact I like the new controllers better because you can move more freely from one place to another but I'll admit it, it took me 3 or 5 minutes to figure them out until I found these new controllers to be more useful, now that's what makes minecraft pocket edition better. But I do still agree that there should be an option for the older controls but not disable the new ones.
Bottom line: this game is awesome but not perfect because of the bugs I occasionally find.
