Minecraft Pocket Edition Tunnels Its Way to Windows Phone

minecraftpe

The wait is over as Minecraft Pocket Edition finally hits the Windows Phone Store. The long awaited mobile version of the critically acclaimed and beloved sandbox adventure game has been available on iOS and Android devices since 2011.

However, the recent acquisition of Mojang by Microsoft may have expedited its release on the platform, regardless I’m sure it will be a welcome arrival for gamers looking to kill some time and Creepers on their Windows Phone. It includes all features of previous releases, including Survival and Creation modes, and solo play or multiplayer over local WiFi.

Minecraft PE comes in at $6.99 (USD) and is compatible with the low end devices sporting 512mb RAM.

    I remember when I first started playing this game way back when it was still in Alpha, and I don’t think anyone knew just how massive it would get in a few short years. Strange to think how a small indie game has become this HUGE juggernaut in the gaming world.

    Have to say they did a great job with this game, leaving the experience up to the creativity of the gamer. Also why I enjoy Terraria.

    I have never played Minecraft but maybe I’ll give it a try on my phone.

    I hate mobile games in general.
    Touch controls are too tacky to execute any accurate maneuvers.

    Simple intuitive games are best for mobile phones.

    I can’t stand playing games on my phone, but it’s always nice to see things slowly trickling onto Windows Phones, lol.

    For the most part I agree, though I have enjoyed Final Fantasy and Terraria on WP. Generally stick to console.

    That’s important, mobile is a big market and Windows Phone really needs some of these key releases.
