For the past few month’s Minecraft – PE, in the review section, there has always been constant requests for crafting items. Well, isn’t that what Mine”Craft” is a bout? For those who have been waiting, we have some good news for you! The excellent mobile edition of the highly popular – Minecraft - comes out with a new update including what all buyers want: Crafting!
Well, that’s just the main dish, what’s for dessert? Well, I forgot to mention that there are: New mobs, including cows and chickens! There are new sounds and SFX added as well as an inventory for the player. Resources must now be gathered, instead of the old sandbox with generated items.
The newest blocks and items include: Crafting Table, Brick Slabs, Brick Stairs, Cobblestone Slab, Snow, Stick, Wooden Slab, Dandelion Yellow, Wooden Axe, Shovel, Pickaxe, Sword, Bowl, Sugar, Book & Paper. There are also bookshelves that can be crafted. Checkout this great screenshot showing the crafting UI:
What a wonderful update, including just what we players want. As of 4/23/2012 the ratings on iTunes remain a consistent five star rating, after over 300+ reviews. Meaning, of the thousands of players who updated, about 300 of those took the time to review the app and decided that crafting really made the difference. In short, we now have survival mode for Minecraft – PE, so, “good bye boring ol’ creative mode and heeeello survival mode!”
