The Official ‘Minecraft’ Coming to the App Store

What a nice surprise.

By far the biggest piece of news in a while, indie developer Mojang has decided to bring an official Minecraft client to iPhone and iPad “later this year”.  If you’re not acquainted with Minecraft, it’s basically an open world in which you can build almost anything, along with fighting off baddies and the like.  While I personally haven’t been interested in playing Minecraft, my brother does seem to play it a little too much everyday (with the occasional geeky Minecraft fact).

The only downside seems to be that the iPhone version will not be receiving the same updates as the computer version; it will only receive updates that “make sense” for the touchscreen platform.

While we don’t have any other information than those tidbits from Gamasutra, we’re definitely excited to see how this develops.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
