Minecraft: Pocket Edition Update Adds Crafting

Posted on April 26, 2012 AT 07:26am

THE BUZZ: Mojang has finally added crafting to the mobile version of Minecraft in its latest update.

The new system is known as MATTIS - Minecraft Advanced Touch Technology Interface System. It has a different name as this new system lets you simply craft things by selecting them from a list if you have the materials needed it will automatically create it. Unlike the actual Minecraft where you have to place the materials in a set order first.

This update also improves Zombie AI and adds new cows and ducks.

EGM’s TAKE: Fans have been asking for crafting to be added to the pocket version ever since it was released. It is a core feature of Minecraft and without it the mobile version just seemed inferior. Finally fans have what they wanted, maybe the sales will increase now this important piece of the puzzle is in place.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
