Minecraft Pocket Edition Updated to Version 7.0 – Brings Chat, Smooth Lighting, More

Minecraft

Crafters of mine can go through Google Play and pick up the newest version 7.0 update for Minecraft: Pocket Edition. Inside, players can now chat (hooray for being social!), play with fire, craft buckets (although you may not be able to pick up water, so that’s pointless), spawn eggs and even make yourself a cake. Oh my, how this game has evolved from what it used to be.  (more…)

Hootsuite, Minecraft, and Sliding Messaging All Receive Updates in Google Play

Apps

We love app updates. They’re refreshing, and when it’s a substantial update, it’s like you have a brand new app to play with. It’s a win win situation for everyone involved. This morning, three of our favorites have received some pretty noteworthy updates. One of our go-to Twitter clients, Hootsuite, now has a widget and bug fixes. Sliding Messaging supports the sending of a text to multiple contacts and more colorful emojis. And Minecraft got its major 0.6.0 update which brings a whole ton of features and fixes.

Minecraft Pocket Edition for Android Updated, New Mobs and a Bow to Slay Them With

Last night, Minecraft Pocket Edition for Android was updated. In terms of updates, it’s pretty decent and brings some new mobs and a means to destroy them. In the caves and outside at night, you will find skeletons and spiders trying to ruin your fun, but Mojang has added in bows and arrows for you to defend yourself. Along with that excitement, the game should see better brightness, decay time for items has been extended to five minutes, and now the hotbar has six slots on all devices.

Minecraft – Pocket Edition Update In the Market, a Few New Features and a New Mob

There are not a lot of games out there that can claim the lives of so many people other than Minecraft. The mobile edition of the game has been fantastic since its release and has seen tons of good updates to keep us coming back. After releasing a survival mode, where you must build to survive everything in the world that’s trying to kill you, another update awaits in the Play Store today that brings a few changes.

First thing changed is a new mob added to survival mode. The friendly pig will be staring at you as you are going around punching trees and digging up dirt. Another control change allows you to “split touch controls” in case you had trouble controlling your character before. Overall a pretty good update, it’s good to see a game getting such attention.

Cheers Tim!

Say Hello To Minicraft, 8-Bit Minecraft Goodness For Your Android Device

Who doesn’t love a well put together 8-bit game? From the creator of the underground cult classic Minecraft, comes Minicraft. Created as a contest entry, Notch gives you life in a world of finite resources. After your resources have been depleted though, it is time to kill the Air Wizard. You explore the world, chop down trees, mine rocks, and of course, kill zombies. But unlike Minecraft, Minicraft has a single purpose:

The goal of the game is to kill the only other sentient being in the world, making sure you’ll be alone forever.

Kind of a sad theme, but let’s face it, Notch is a genius. Controls were a bit tough at first, but if you have the right amount of screen real estate, then getting the hang of it shouldn’t be too difficult. It was created for PC, but has been unofficially ported to Android by Folstad Consulting Inc. Cheers to them for allowing us to play this great game on our mobile devices. Down below is a YouTube video of the Yogscast performing a livestream of the game. It will most definitely give a helping sense of how the game works.  (more…)
