Just the other day, I was saying to some of my co-workers here at Gamezebo what a bummer it was that Minecraft – Pocket Edition was only available on the Android-powered Xperia Play. As is often the case, the universe seems to have picked up on my complaint and addressed it with due haste. Developer Mojang has just announced that the game will be coming to other Android handsets on September 29th, and should make an appearance on iOS devices before the end of the year.

A portable version of the popular indie PC game Minecraft, Minecraft – Pocket Edition lets players build their own worlds out of blocks that they can then share with their friends.


Of course iOS gamers who don’t care to wait can always wet their whistle by checking out a myriad of Minecraft inspired releases like Mooncraft or Eden – World Builder. Still, if you’d rather wait for the real thing, be sure to keep an eye on Gamezebo. We’ll be bringing you a full review soon!
