Here’s some good news for just about every kid I know (and a fair few grown-ups): Minecraft – Pocket Edition just got another update. Version 0.9.5 is the latest update for the pocket edition of the incredibly popular block-building, world-building game.
Here’s the details on what’s new in the new Version 0.9.5:
0.9 – biggest update EVER!
Loads of new blocks and items including Monster Eggs and huge mushroom blocks.
Wolves! Tame a loyal companion.
Loads of new flowers! So pretty.
New mobs, including the spooky endermen and less spooky Mooshrooms.
New biomes from the PC version, including mesas, jungles, swamps and extreme hills.
Abandoned mineshafts, villages, and many other cool places to explore.
A brand-new “interaction” button. Never accidentally punch a sheep again!
New feature generation, including lakes, vines and monster rooms.
Many bugs fixed, and possibly a few added.
My daughter, and many of her friends, are huge fans of this game. I imagine she’ll be giving this update some serious usage very soon.
Here’s an App Store link for Minecraft – Pocket Edition; it’s priced at $6.99 and is a universal app design for both iPad and iPhone.
