Summary

After setting a phenomenal trend on PC and selling tremendously well on Xbox Live Arcade, Mojang’s incredibly addictive world-creation game Minecraft has made the jump to physical media!

The charm of Minecraft is in its crude, blocky graphics. As you wander about a seemingly empty map, you soon learn to use your trusty pickaxe to chisel away the environment around you. Doing so not only allows you to rebuild the entire map as you see fit, but can also throw up a number of interesting surprises.

Create buildings, caverns, landmarks... you’re only limited by your imagination. If you like, you can invite a bunch of friends along to help you build a masterpiece worthy of showing the entire world. But be quick about it, because at night monsters come out to play, so you need to make sure that you have made preparations for you (and your friends) to stay safe until dawn.

This Vita edition has the advantage not only of dual analogue controls, but also of the handheld's touchscreen that enables you to quickly select items from your inventory.

The Vita version also offers multiplayer for up to four over local wireless, or eight online. It also has the advantage of enabling you to send your world back and forth between the Vita and the PS3. You can also send your creation to the PS4, but keep in mind that technical limitations mean you can't make the transfer in reverse.

Minecraft offers a huge world to explore, and now you can put the whole thing in your pocket.
