We all love to play a game or two on our mobiles and on our desktops. It’s a great way to while away a journey or relax after a hard day at work and there are many, many different types of games. But without a doubt, one of the most played games in the world is Minecraft. Simple, basic graphics, Minecraft is a game that might seem like a kids game at first glance but, get into it, and it doesn’t take long to become hooked on one of the most exciting, fun, adventure games ever released.
Read on for all the details
What is Minecraft?
Minecraft is an adventure that you control. At the start, you have little to play with, but as the game progresses, in whatever direction you choose to go in, resources become more abundant, your buildings become more creative, and you can craft bigger and better weapons to help you defend yourself against the Zombies, Endermen, Skeletons, Spiders and the many other monsters that arise once the sun sets. The name of the game is survival, and only you can ensure that your character lives to see the sun rise on another day. Exploration is key to the game as it’s the only way to find many of the resources you need and the game offers plenty of different options. Playing the game is personal – unlike many other games that have a set path to follow, Minecraft is all about what you want, what you make of it and what you want to get out of it.
How cool is that!
How to Download Minecraft:
If you want to download Minecraft, find it in your app store and go for it. It isn’t a free game though, so be prepared to shell out a few bucks to play it:
- Minecraft for iOS – $6.99
- Minecraft for Windows– $26.99
- Minecraft for Android – $6.99
Minecraft PC vs. Minecraft PE:
Minecraft is one of the most versatile games with versions available for all the top mobile and desktop platforms but is there a difference between the PC and PE versions? Not too much. Playing the game on both gives you much the same experience – the same features, resources and the same amount of fun. But there are a couple of major differences.
The first relates to the younger players. Minecraft is loved by people of all ages but there is no argument that the PE ( Mobile ) version is far better, simply because the parental controls are stronger and multiplayer games are invitation only.

The second relates to third-party integration. The desktop version allows for integration with third-party modifications while the mobile versions don’t; instead, it offer in-app purchases for resources, skins, and other things. And, although the desktop version provides for connections to third-party servers, the mobile game does not.
Differences aside, one of the biggest features that make this game so popular is that you are not limited to your platform when it comes to interaction and multiplayer gaming. Instead, you can play anyone, no matter which platform they play on.
So, really, whether you choose the mobile PE version or the desktop version comes down to what suits you the best.
