At this point, there’s hardly anything left to tell you about the open-world game par excellence that you still don’t know about. We’re talking about Minecraft, a title originally developed by Mojang and later purchased by Microsoft, in which you can explore endless scenarios, living all sorts of adventures and building whatever you fancy with the blocks and resources available.
It’s what is usually known as a sandbox game. There’s no specific goal other than trying to survive while you wander around a never-ending world, building and destroying objects with the blocks available (stone, granite, iron, grass, etc.). The worlds of this game are generated randomly so there are never two alike, which guarantees a totally new adventure each team we start a new game.
Create thousands of different structure with your blocks.
One of the most characteristic aspects of this game is its pixel-art graphics. To such an extent that any game launched after that, using the same retro graphics is often defined as a title inspired by Minecraft. And there are loads of them because due to the great success achieved after its launch in 2011, dozens of clones have appeared trying to gain as much popularity.
The mobile version of the game by Mojang AB
Well, now we can enjoy all the features of this game on our Android smartphone or tablet by downloading the APK of Minecraft Trial. With the latter, we can continue crafting, exploring and building, alone or with friends, from a small screen and from wherever we are. It’s a somewhat limited version, with fewer game modes and fewer kinds of blocks, but it also comes along with exclusive features that make it a very decent game.
Main features of Minecraft
- Mobile edition of the sandbox game par excellence.

Despite being a pocket version, let’s admit it, it’s not at the reach of everyone’s pocket. Well, maybe it is… it only costs seven dollars, but not all of us are willing to spend the price of two pints on a mobile game. But thanks to Malavida, you can download it for free. Or at least his trial version that offers you an hour and a half before having to pay.

Requirements and additional information:

After its huge success on PC, developer Mojang has been able to adapt the gameplay of Minecraft for touchscreen, bringing the popular game to your mobile and tablet in the form of Minecraft Pocket Edition. It’s time to dive into the building block world of Minecraft, a game that’s become legendary. For any player with a creative mind, this game’s for you.
A classic game of survival and creativity
Minecraft Pocket Edition starts with a random stage. You’ll find yourself on a chaotic land in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by mountains, valleys, trees, and animals. In survival mode, the target becomes more vital as the sun sets.
Monsters will appear and try to eat you, and it soon becomes impossible to survive in the open air. To spend your first night under shelter, you either need to dig it, or build it. Once your basic survival is guaranteed, you can start developing your domain. In creative mode, you won’t have any restrictions, so you’ll be able to unleash your wildest ideas. Whether you want to build a castle, a boat or a cathedral, the sky’s the limit!
Well-thought out gameplay for mobile devices
Collect wood, coal and stones: the Inventory menu will let you build almost anything you can think of using these supplies. Once you’ve unlocked the secrets of the exciting survival gameplay, you’ll be able to create some really interesting structures and unleash your creativity.
With a well-thought out game system for touch devices, all you have to do is spend some time studying the game, and you’ll be able to make anything you want. It’s an excellent adaptation, especially since it has many options and lets you set your experience depending on the device you’re using.
Efficient, even if it’s not graphically impressive
The soundtrack of Minecraft Pocket Edition isn’t that good, and if you’re not a fan of pixelated blocks, this game isn’t for you. If, however, you love exploring and have always dreamed of becoming Robinson Crusoe in a virtual environment, Minecraft Pocket Edition will indeed meet your expectations.
An active user community is there to help you, and the multiplayer mode opens the possibilities even further. Regarding the technical aspect of this mobile version, I must admit that the developers have done a great job: the game is efficient and fast, and everything runs smoothly. The only drawback: the resolution of the game isn’t very good, limiting the field of vision on the screen.
An unrivaled game
Minecraft Pocket Edition is an infinite world game that is incredibly innovative, deserving the title of a sandbox game. Amid the many Minecraft clones that have launched for mobiles, don’t be mistaken: the original Minecraft is still unrivaled.
Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players worked together to create wonderful, imaginative things.
It can also be about adventuring with friends or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. It’s pretty. Brave players battle terrible things in The Nether, which is more scary than pretty. You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.
