Mojang, creators of the world-famous PC game Minecraft announced via their official blog today that the 0.4.0 update for Minecraft: Pocket Edition has been submitted to the iOS App store. The game is scheduled to continue striving to be more like its PC counterpart by introducing many fan-favorite features that have defined the game since release. Some of the much-anticipated new features included in the next update are chests, beds, creepers, TNT, various food items, and trap doors. Don’t be too worried about the game getting harder, though, because although Mojang did finally add creepers and TNT, they have also made day longer and made monsters spawn in smaller groups.
Minecraft: Pocket Edition started off as a bare-bones version of Minecraft, but Mojang says it will continue to evolve, allowing it to be a more fun and enjoyable port of the original. It can purchased on the iOS App store and Google Play for $6.99 and if you want to try it first, lite versions are available on both stores.
