When Minecraft: Pocket Edition was released at MineCon late last year, every Minecrafter out there, myself included, freaked and immediately went out to buy it. I was slightly disappointed when I saw that the Minecraft app for the iOS was basically an alpha version of the game, only including creative mode, but Mojang promised several updates and releases for the app as it continued to get worked on in the coming months.
The latest update finally brings several much-needed and exciting changes to Minecraft. The addition of survival mode, along with the first mob, the zombie and sheep has been added, along with flying mode for creative and the ability to use tools and collect resources from the environment.
These changes immediately make Minecraft: Pocket Edition feel much more enjoyable and like the PC version. If you haven’t gotten it yet and you have an Android phone, an iPhone or an iPad, you should look into getting yourself a copy and playing it.
