Minecraft iOS

Minecraft Pocket Edition has finally come to iPhones, iPods and iPads. Yes Minecraft has come to Apple! A listing on the New Zealand Itunes Store shows the game to be available for $9.99 (NZ Dollar) which is about $6.99 (US Dollar), that’s about the same price as the Android Version. The game will be compatible with any device running iOS 4.3 or higher. unfortunately the specifications are to high for my first generation iPod touch!

According to the description the game will allow players to ‘move beyond the limits of your computer and play Minecraft everywhere you go’. The game is unfortunately limited to Creative mode with only 36 kinds of blocks for building with. It will still randomly generate worlds for you and using WI-Fi players can invite others to their world! The game is looks lacking in areas for there are less blocks to play with and no survival mode. However it is new and will obviously be updated, it’s still a long way to go!

Minecraft on Apple?

A few days ago a Minecraft Pocket Edition was released for Android. An Apple App is in development. I hope that it will be released on an earlier iOS, so it’s compatible with my first generation Ipod touch. If not an upgrade might be in order. A Xbox Edition is also in development and I hope it won’t be too expensive for I’ve already shelled out £15 for the computer version. There could be a system that if you buy the game on one platform you get it free, or a least for a discount on another. However I doubt it, for people could share their acounts to get the game. If Minecraft is being released on so many platforms, will we be seeing  an Ipad, Macbook, Playstation, or Nintendo Edition?
