Minecraft on Iphone/Ipod Touch

#1TokioRosePosted 12/3/2010 5:21:03 AM
So I've noticed that quite a few people (myself included) were wondering if a Minecraft app would be possible for mobile devices.
A few weeks ago Minecrafted was released, but it was gone before anyone noticed. Today, another Minecraft copy has been released.
It's called "Eden: World Builder", and is in the appstore for something like 3 bucks.
I've just Dl'ed it, and it seems like a carbon copy of minecraft classic. There is a save option, and you can also upload your own world or
download someone else's. There's room for five worlds on the device at a time. Framerate & controls seem pretty solid. Anyone interested in more first impressions or anything?

I am. I would be really amazing to be able to have the original Minecraft on the IPod Touch/IPhone.

Just pretend that there's something clever written here, because, right now, there isn't, and it boggles my mind why you are even reading this.

So long as they don't neglect us Droid users.

There was a proof of concept for Android on the Galaxy S phone, and it ran really smoothly and seemed fine. But there hasn't been any official support yet. Notch said he was thinking about it, but he probably wants to get the PC version out of Beta before much attention is given to mobile versions.

Also, Steam. Steam as an option would do some nice things for Minecraft.

doesn't have as many options as the full game, some blocks like water, lava, glass, as well as half blocks that you can use to make stairs aren't present.
draw distance is pretty good, about the same as the second best on the full game. Downloading and uploading games is super easy, and only takes 5-10 seconds. I think the price is also lowered to a buck. Controls can get a bit touchy, you'll quite often tap the screen instead of hold to look, and inadvertedly delete/add a block. There's also only onetemplate, so no sno, desert or lava worlds. However, it's still a great app and if you like minecraft, you should definately grab it.

Given how Minecraft needs a relatively high spec computer (Or at least, not as one as bad as mine) to run properly, I don't think there's much hope of it running on iPhone. iPad, perhaps.

If you read the topic, a fully working minecraft clone called eden has already been released.
It runs just fine, even with a lot going on. Seems like people seriously underestimate IoS devices.

But by the sounds of it, it's a watered-down Creative mode, which is FAR watered-down from the survival mode.
