Mobile Monday

JohnBMinecraft? On your Android phone? It's here, folks, and it's an official release from Mojang! It may not be the full-fledged game you were hoping for, but given some time, we might just get our favorite building game fully ported. If building things isn't your style, we've also got Flick Golf and Pocket League Story to keep you entertained!

minecraftpocket.gifMinecraft - Pocket Edition - You know the game, now you can take it with you wherever you go! Er... sorta. This early release of the mobile version of the ever-amazing Minecraft features just the most essential elements you need to build your own block worlds. Move around your world, creating and removing blocks with a tap of your touch screen. There's no crafting, no mobs, and most of the other features found in the full desktop version of the game aren't present, but if you absolutely need your Minecraft fix on-the-go, this'll get the job done. With any luck, the game will get more features in the near future. A free Minecraft - Pocket Edition Demo is also available.

flickgolf.gifFlick Golf - From the makers of Coin Drop, Flick Golf is a touch screen-friendly version of the real-world game so many people secretly love to play. Choose your shot's direction, then swipe the screen to give the golf ball a good hit. Influence its direction in mid-air by swiping the screen, and try to land your shot near the hole (obviously). Simple design, but the game is perfect for quick mobile sessions.

pocketleaguestory.gifPocket League Story - Another simulation game from the mobile experts at Kairosoft, creator of Game Dev Story and several other games in the "story" series. You are the manager of a young soccer team hoping to make it big. Train players, attract sponsors, manage research possibilities and keep track of players' stats before and after each game. During the action, you're practically a spectator, leaving you in a tense nail-biting position. If you manage your team right, though, you'll start racking up some victories, giving you more options to improve your team bit by bit. The free Pocket League Story Lite is also available.

NOTE: Games listed may not be available outside of North America. Prices are subject to change and are therefore unlisted. Please see the individual game pages for purchasing info. Games have been confirmed to run on Android 2.2 on an HTC Incredible.

Minecraft seems like such an interesting game and I think I would love it, but as a senior I definitely do NOT have any more time in the day to spend playing such an engrossing game... :P

MEh, controls and gameplay in Minecraft Pocket leave much to be desired. Of course, being spoiled with PC Minecraft....

Also, I wonder if there's a way to get this free? I already paid for my PC version!

@Angelade - I'm very much with you there except for the fact that I went and bought this and have since had hours of my life sucked away accomplishing very real in the practical world yet created the most satisfying underground catacomb with nice lighting effect.

I'd heard a lot about the PC version and am aware that there are very few of the more engrossing features in this pocket edition yet it is quite a unique experience. I look forward to updates that bring the two (PC and Android) together.

As a side note for some reason I want to visit the netetrader site but for the life of me I don't know why.
