    so, back i December of 2011 majang released the pocket edition of this extremely addictive game for ios, android, and specifically the sony phone that almost nobody wants. although the pocket edition is starting alot like the actual game (current version: 0.1.3 alpha) i feel it has high hopes but i fear that as it goes up in version there is that possibility that the price will reach upward as well. really what ive been trying to figure out is: is it worth the price or is it worth the wait for future releases. i do own the ipod version and i must say they did great putting it together but the price is really not what i payed for. there is news of a survival update soon, which i would hope gives us more freedom with more blocks.

    anyway sorry i ranted a little but the question still remains to me should people get it now or wait till future releases?

    The controls are awful and it's incredibly limited. If anything you should have grabbed it for 99 cents during the sale. Even then, that was barely worth it considering how it is in its current state.

    I play it sometimes, it's okay but no where near like the full game is, it's just limited with materials and things to do really. Needs more survival mode.

    It's alright if you can see around your thumb.
    The game feels limited, but hopefully it will get better if updates come.
    I'd wait and see if you have other uses for that bit of money

    With a game like Eden out, there's really no reason to own the pocket edition in its current state, especially not for 7 bucks.

    i agree with all of and esp that guy. its pretty crummy at the moment but when it gets some updates maybe itll be worth the 7 bucks only 9 days till survival is submited for approval tho so thats a plus, im trying to keep up to date with it cause where i am alot of ppl ask me having built a server and been deep withing that community. i hope it eventually allows cross system tho. ipod to pc

    I wouldn't buy a mobile version when I have the PC version already, you should be able to log in and play with a PC account.

    I bought it during that Android 10cent Sale, for that yes. Now no.

    Wait until it's more developed. Hopefully it'll eventually be more compatible with the PC Version as some limited client that's at least able to connect to PC servers.

    I got Eden when it was free for a day and it's a lot better than the current state of Pocket Edition.

    What the hell is Eden? I cant find it on the android market?

    Edit: Disregard that last post should have figured it was iOS

    I love Minecraft, probably one of my all time favorite games and I have dumped over $400 into it. The only way they got me to buy pocket edition was during the 10 cents sale. I want my 10 cents back.....

    How do you pay 400$ for a 30 something dollar game?

    If you bought it when it was super cheap it's alright to mess around with, but the money would be better spent on something else.

    The demo definitely doesn't.

    If you go to the edge or corner of the map and get up to the height limit (by whatever means), you can actually walk off the map. You don't fall; you just walk on the air at the height limit. You can punch the air, but punching this air is not unlike punching bedrock.

    Even the full game doesn't have infinite maps, basically this is Classic 0.30 with some textures from Beta on Android with just a few tweaks to the menu and controls.

    Unless you own an experia play to have the 8 items at once on screen and easy to use controls I would not buy it.

    But if you do own an experia play like me it is VERY worth getting. Now that survival mode is out and hopefully they will add crafting soon I cannot have enouth fun playing it at the moment.

    At this moment in time we have mobs including zombies. Fall damage and some items you have to collect like in normal minecraft. Tools makes it fun and we now have working doors and gates.

    I say it is great and is only going to get better.
