Now, its not only is the PC version of the indie game Minecraft that is crowned with amazing success. The Pocket Edition for Apple iOS and Android sells very well. Since the release last year, the mobile edition of the game has found more than 700,000 buyers.
Minecraft has made the leap successful from PC to mobile devices. Since October, the game has been available for the Android operating system and since November for Apple’s IOS. Since then, the sandbox game has sold over hundereds of thousands of copies. That’s plenty of sales, sure, but not the 4 million sales of the PC-version is approaching, but does prove porting to mobile devices can bring great success.
Mojangs Business Developer Daniel Kaplan says up to 5,000 units sold during the first release day. An update to the Pocket Edition is scheduled for February 8, which was recently announced on the official blog of the developer Mojang. In this update, gamers get the games Survival elements as well as the ability to use custom Minecraft world seeds. The developers also want to integrate new animals and monsters into Minecraft pocket edition. I recommend this version to anyone who already loves Minecraft or is looking for a new mobile gaming challenge.
