Minecraft Pocket Edition gets update with new and fun features!

Minecraft Pocket Edition just received an update! This little PC hit quickly spread throughout the gaming world in recent years – be it console, PC or mobile gaming – and it has also become subject to many jokes from mainstream gamers all over the world. Pocket Edition became a little hit on its own, especially because of the continuous support it received from Mojang and later Microsoft.

 

Minecraft Pocket Edition

 

 

Minecraft Pocket Edition is getting an update to version 0.12.1 and you will find some interesting tweaks and changes floating around including, but not limited to: sprinting and sneaking, taming ocelots and powerful golems. Most of these things you already know if you also dabble in Minecraft PC versions.

 

You can now play with up to four friends and their controllers or Android devices, even Windows 10 devices! Yes, that’s right, you can now cross-play with friends from different devices!

 

Official Minecraft Pocket Edition changes:

  • Revamped touch controls, controller support, and a controller mapping screen
  • Enhanced Weather effects! Accumulating snow and more
  • Ocelots! Try taming one with a fish
  • Experience, Anvils, Brewing, and enchantments. Time to up your game, crafter
  • Golems. We recommend you approach with caution

  • Lots, lots more!

This update is available only in the Amazon Appstore at the moment, which means that other versions will have to wait for a little while longer. Let’s hope that the Play Store page will soon update its version because that is where most people get their games usually. Until then, keep playing in your cubic world and keep away from those creepers, man!

 

EDIT : Now available on Google Play versions too!

Minecraft pocket edition supported by Android Wear devices!

Minecraft pocket edition is back and this time the pocket is smaller than ever! The little cubic sandbox is now available on smartwatches as well!

The first smartwatches that have a similar construction to older smartphones can handle the pocket version of Minecraft, and this is all thanks to Youtube user and Galaxy Gear owner Corbin Davenport, who managed to port the game to the most minimal virtual pocket ever.

Davenport says he didn’t do that much to make the Pocket version supported on his Galaxy Gear as he just manually installed it. The Samsung handwear device runs on a 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon 400 processor with 512 MB of RAM and no less than 4 GB of storage, which means it is strong enough to play the sandbox building game, at least in local mode.

It appears that the game adapts rather well to the 1.65” square 320×320 screen. You can even play the game if you squint your eyes a bit and are careful enough with there you tap the screen.
