Minecraft: Pocket Edition is a downloadable simulation game that, graphically, brings to mind LEGO bricks. In a nutshell, it is a mobile version of the classic Minecraft. It was created by Markus Persson and Jens Bergensten. The game presents a randomly generated map of the world where you can create your own infrastructures such as buildings, figures, skyscrapers, monuments, and various things you imagine. All this is built from textured cubes. These cubes are made of various materials such as sand, wood, diamonds, lava, and water. There are two main game modes: Survival and Creative.
Minecraft: Pocket Edition – The Survival Mode
Survival mode is created for players who like challenges. You are given the task of finding and extracting building materials and looking for food. You can create tools using the resources you find. You then use these tools to extract even better resources. The game offers the day and night cycle. At night you can come across the creatures that can kill you. Among them, you will find zombies, spiders, Creepers, and Enderman. Of course, the mobs are divided into aggressive (Witches, Skeletons, Creepers, Spiders) and passive, non-attacking ones as cow, rabbit, sheep, and pigs. There are also neutral mobs. If we do not provoke them, they will not attack us (Enderman, Polar Bear, Cave Spider).
Here’s the full list:
Hostile Mobs in Minecraft
- Chicken Jockey
- Elder Guardian
- Magma Cube
- Skeleton Horseman
- Spider Jockey
- Wither Skeleton
- Zombie Villager
Passive Mobs in Minecraft
- Baby Polar Bear
- Cave Spider
- Polar Bear
- Zombie Pigman
All creatures can be killed with weapons. You can also create armor that will protect you from attacks. In Survival mode, players have a health bar. How full it is, depends on various factors such as attack, drowning, hunger, or falling. The best tip we can give to players who are interested in Survival mode is to build the first a safe hiding place on the first day and to avoid monsters at night.
Minecraft: Pocket Edition – the Creative Mode
In Creative mode, players get access to everything without having to spend hours harvesting resources. They have all the materials to build whatever they desire. Players also have the ability to fly and do not have to eat. You can move freely, but buildings may be raised only be in certain areas. For example, a house cannot stand on water or can’t be suspended in the air if there is no support. The main goal of this mode is creative building. You are never worried if a monster is going to attack you because you are immortal.
The basic premise of the game seems to be simply building as many structures as possible and surviving in Survival mode. Minecraft: Pocket Edition has both modes working also in the multiplayer online version, so together with friends, you can raise the buildings of your dreams. The game can take hundreds of hours of your time if you are keen to finish your masterpiece.
Minecraft was originally developed for Windows machines, but Its port to mobile devices is of high quality. The game is paid, but it’s worth it. You’re buying entertainment scheduled for hundreds of hours so you can feel the thrill of adventure in the Survival mode and Creative mode artistic fulfillment.
