Minecraft is a sandbox game, namely a virtual construction set that can give players incredible freedom of action. This game has sold 4 million on PC and has successfully begun to conquer other gaming platforms, including Android and iOS. It isn't easy to find a modern gaming device that does not have a particular version of Minecraft.
The main emphasis is the unity of creation and destruction: to get planks, you need to cut down a tree, and to get food, you need to dig up plants. Here everyone is for himself and the creator of his universe. Brick by brick, the characters build their houses, plant a vegetable garden, make tools.
When you enter the main menu of MCPE, you can choose a game mode. There are two of them, and they may differ in the tasks that the character must perform. So, the first game option is survival. The hero may face various difficult trials that will need to be overcome with the help of his mind and skills, in fact, as in reality.
Heroes build structures, get resources to advance construction, create weapons, explore the area in the open spaces, and defend themselves from monsters. The mode is perfect for players with a sound mind, who can adapt to the most unexpected life conditions.
The second option is the Creative Mode. In it, the hero will not need to worry about hunger, and he will not have enemies. The hero cannot die, and also has an inexhaustible supply of building materials.
In Minecraft, there is a vast unknown world on your tablet or smartphone, consisting of cubic blocks. The blocks are made from different materials such as wood, sand, stone, lava, water. The player can change such a world at his own discretion, while the blocks can be used both in their original form and processed, and thereby receive some new materials.
Of course, the player is not at all alone in this world. There are animals here, which can be eaten, as well as various monsters that the player can feed themselves.
Mining and crafting is a defining characteristic of Minecraft, where everyone should work. You start from scratch. You will have to collect materials, even for the first tools to collect more building materials. Labor can be tedious, but it is also responsible for deep levels of satisfaction in the game.
One of the greatest strengths of Pocket Edition is its seamless multiplayer experience, provided that all players are on the same Wi-Fi network. Players can move from their world to that of any other player, making it easy to start playing with friends.
Pocket Edition has a traditional mobile control scheme with direction arrows and a jump button in the center. Pressing and holding the button forward and pressing the buttons to the side allows you to shift while driving. This long-awaited addition came in version 0.6.1 and let the character move much more dynamically. It also allows you to spin around enemies during combat. To interact with the world, you select blocks with your thumb and press/hold to set/mine them. And when you mine material, a circle appears around your finger, which fills up as the block is destroyed. In the end, you also receive a signal in the form of vibration. Experienced players will notice that blocks can be mined and placed much further in the Pocket Edition than the PC version, which makes the mobile version of the game somewhat more comfortable.
