The pocket edition of Minecraft is now available for the iPhone and iPad in the App Store. We told you that Minecraft was coming to the iOS platform a couple of months ago, and now it’s finally here.

Fans of the popular game will be pleased to know that the iOS version looks and feels just like its desktop counterpart. Minecraft for iOS lacks online play support, but there’s still enough world-building fun to make it an attractive download.

Imagine it, build it. Create worlds on the go with Minecraft – Pocket Edition

Minecraft – Pocket Edition allows you to build on the go. Use blocks to create masterpieces as you travel, hangout with friends, sit at the park, the possibilities are endless. Move beyond the limits of your computer and play Minecraft everywhere you go.

* Randomized worlds
* Build anything you can imagine
* Build with 36 different kinds of blocks
* Invite and play with friends to your world (local wireless network)
* Save multi-player worlds on your own phone

Mincraft lets you build worlds made up of just about anything with all sorts of materials. While many of the game’s features are present in the iOS version, animals and creepers are not included in the gameplay. The app does have a multiplayer mode that lets you create worlds with friends on the same Wi-Fi network, which is fun.

“Minecraft – Pocket Edition” is available in the App Store for $9.99.

What do you think? Are you a Minecraft fan? If so will you play the Pocket Edition?

Update: Minecraft is now available worldwide.

        Not really. 10 is a deal compared to the 20 they charge for the computer edition. Also, it just came out, a lot needs to be added.

        It is worth $10.

  • FUUUUUUUUUU 4.3 and higher so not on my iPhone 3G 🙁

        Maybe he can not afford it, scum.

      • 3GS is free. 4 is $99. If you have an iPhone and pay at least $15 a month data…affordable for you.

    It really needs ios4.3 or newer? WHY…..
    And dont go off into this s#$# about how you should get a new device…some people would rather not waste their money and add another iphone into a landfill.

    Why Mojang?

    I might just go grab the ipa for Crafted…it was free and works on everything except first generation devices.

  • I don’t see what all the fuss is about with this ‘game’.. what exactly is the point?
