Minecraft is a cultural phenomenon, with more than 100 million players across the world. Now, it comes to Windows Phone 8.1, giving Windows Phone users the ability to play one of the world’s most popular games while on the move.

“Minecraft: Pocket Edition” for Windows Phone 8.1 includes all of Minecraft’s mobile features, including the tense action of Survival mode, the limitless exploration of Creative mode, and multiplayer fun over local Wi-Fi networks. This release includes infinite worlds, with the new biomes, caves, mobs, villages and more that players love.

What is Minecraft?

In Short, Minecraft is an open world game that has no specific goals for the player to accomplish, allowing players a large amount of freedom in choosing how to play the game. However, there is an achievement system. Gameplay by default is first person, but players have the option to play in third person mode.

The core gameplay revolves around breaking and placing blocks to create anything you wish. The game world is essentially composed of rough 3D objects, mainly cubes that are arranged in a fixed grid pattern and represent different materials, such as dirt, stone, various ores, water, and tree trunks.
