Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo can no longer be downloaded. Take a look at the full version here.
Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo lets you try the incredibly popular indie game of survival and creativity on your 'phone.
On an Xperia Play, Minecraft Pocket Edition Demo runs smoothly, and looks just like it's desktop big brother. Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo like the original Minecraft Classic, has a Creative mode, where you have infinite blocks available to you so you can build whatever you like. There is no save game, so your creations in Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo won't last.
There's also a Survival mode in Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo, where you have to collect resources, build structures and fight off monsters in order to keep going.
The controls are surprisingly good - the transition from Mouse/Keyboard is never easy, but Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo has clearly had lots of thought put into it. There are useful touches, like an auto-jump that allows you to climb easily, making traveling much easier, and the controls less awkward!
Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo is still very much Minecraft. The pixelated, blocky graphics are the same, as are the sound effects. It's a great way to try the game out, and if you get the full version, you can be sure of many more interesting developments to come as developers Mojang are constantly adding new features.
Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo lets you mine and build on the go. Neat controls make it surprisingly comfortable on the move. Get digging!
