Minecraft on mobile devices is so bad. It gets annoying after five minutes because of the stupid touch screen controls.

Much better on a tablet than a phone. With a phone it is quite cumbersome, but I still managed to create a bad ass 4 story home within a volcano on my old Galaxy S.

Well, until I removed a block I shouldn't have an everything got flooded by lava and well, that was the end of that.

Pocket Edition is just insane. No actually, ALL versions are insane. This game will easily sell over 30m combined eventually. Simply amazing, and unprecedented for an indie game (that costs more than a dollar lol).

It's a great game, but it can easily devour time and often feel pointless.

Perhaps once it feels pointless, you need to try actually beating it (yes, there are conditions built in so you can beat the game)
