    Minecraft, the multiplayer block-building game by Mojang, started life as a niche PC title in 2009 before becoming a global phenomenon across computers, consoles and mobile devices. The Android version of Minecraft, dubbed Minecraft Pocket Edition, debuted in 2011 on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, before being opened up to all Android devices through the Google Play Store.

    Minecraft allows players to create structures out of procedurally-generated landscapes, creating more powerful tools and harvesting resources as they go. Much of the gameplay is focused on destroying and placing blocks from a first-person perspective, though players must also protect themselves (and their creations) from enemies which spawn at night.

    The open-ended nature of Minecraft has made it hugely successful across multiple platforms, and the mobile version of the game is being regularly updated with new features, blocks and creatures from the full version.
