What is Minecraft?
Minecraft PE is the mobile version, or Pocket Edition, of one of the most popular games in the world. First developed in 2009 as a Java game, Minecraft has gone from strength to strength. Now owned by Microsoft, Minecraft can now be played on many platforms, including mobile, and is a 3D sandbox game with no set gameplay to follow. Players are dropped into a world, and it’s down to them where they go and what they do. The idea is to survive by building, hunting, harvesting, and finding resources in the many biomes, including water, forests, mountains, and more. Players will be faced with enemies along the way and must build weapons and traps to stop them.
