What is it about?
Minecraft: Pocket Edition is all about building. With an nearly-unlimited amount of materials, players can construct pretty much anything their minds can imagine. There are several game modes that are now available in the Pocket version, including Survival, where you have to make it through the night when dangerous creatures come out and make themselves known, or you can just go wild with building in Creative Mode. The game also has a ton of new skin packs that you can purchase to alter your character's appearance. No matter who you are, if you can dream it, you can build it in Minecraft. It is this generation's Lego.
For those who...
- Enjoy an open-ended, make-your-own adventure. Looking for a massive game world to explore. Like to build and create in a virtual world.
Not for those who...
- Are looking for a quick and easy gaming fix.

Minecraft now comes with the option to buy Minecraft Realms. Realms is a monthly subscription service that lets you create your own always-online Minecraft world.

A 30-day trial of Minecraft Realms for you and 10 friends is available. Any unused portion of a free trial period will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription.
