Minecraft Pocket Edition updated, brings long awaited survival mode

Hope they improve the AI of the mobs. They don't seem to really pursue you unless you are in front of them. Other wise great update. Keep them coming!

I must be out of the loop, because I don't understand all the hype Minecraft gets.
I've tried it, just don't see the appeal.

I was happy when I saw the update last night. First thing I did was start a survival game and dig a home with a door. Now I will just play around and see what happens at night. The Endermen will be pretty freaky with only touch screen controls now. Hopefully we will be able to connect to online servers soon. That is always my favorite part.

Still kicking myself for not picking this up during the 10¢ sale a while back.

Thanks for reopening the wound.

I don't get this game at all. What is the point? Better look up a tutorial on youtube or something, because I have never seen any thing as over rated as Minecraft.
