Minecraft Pocket Edition for iPad and iPhone Goes Live Worldwide Tonight

Minecraft, the block-building phenomenon, arrives on the iPhone and iPad for all iOS users tonight.

TouchArcade reports that initial impressions on its forums "seem positive, although some have noted disappointment with how limited the game feels compared to the 'full' version. There's no online play, for instance, only local WiFi, and your portable Minecraft worlds are devoid of both animals and creepers."

Minecraft - Pocket Edition allows you to build on the go. Use blocks to create masterpieces as you travel, hangout with friends, sit at the park, the possibilities are endless. Move beyond the limits of your computer and play Minecraft everywhere you go.
Minecraft Pocket Edition is already available in New Zealand and should be available in the U.S. at 11 PM Eastern. Minecraft - Pocket Edition will be available for iPhone or iPad as a universal app, for $7.99. [Direct Link]

My roommate will probably enjoy this, he plays Minecraft.


Also: In before jokes about the low Minecraft resolution.
