Varies with device
Minecraft App is a mobile version of the sandbox-style game created by Swedish Mojang Studios and officially released in 2011. It takes seconds to download Minecraft and open the infinite world of construction and survival.
Missing Redstone and Limited World
You can definitely feel the soul of Minecraft in its pocket edition, joining the mined cubes into 3D objects, keeping them in your inventory, or destroying them at any time. Those cubes have different natures of origin (though materials are limited compared to the desktop version), and you can successfully craft buildings and landscapes. Unfortunately, the Redstone - that helps you create simple mechanisms and devices - is missing. As you navigate the Minecraft App space, you quickly find out that the world is limited. Though the map is still large, you can explore it pretty effortlessly and, hence, rapidly. So attractive infinite worlds of Minecraft are confined in its portable version.
Fewer Monsters that Are Easily Defeated
It is disappointing that some enemies are missing in the Minecraft Application's survival mode, which inevitably makes the gameplay less dangerous and extreme. The terrifying monsters that come out after the sunset are destroyed more easily on the surface, while, luckily, underground dangers still keep the game exciting and intense. The creative mode still keeps its advantages and gives you an additional opportunity to change your projects when you are not home.
Limited Multiplayer Option
Even the high graphics settings will rarely result in stuttering, but in return, your device will be getting warm pretty fast. In contrast to the PC version, you can choose between only two (not five) game modes of the Minecraft App: survival and creative. Our Minecraft App review's good news is that the mobile version allows selecting and mining the blocks by simply tapping and holding. The app introduces a fascinating multiplayer opportunity, though, without a possibility to connect to PC servers.
