Mojang has taken over the world with its breakthrough game, Minecraft. Before getting on to our Ultimate Minecraft Guide, check out the latest Minecraft Pocket Edition Lite which is completely Free for the iPad and iPhone. Is Minecraft Free? See it HERE!
Minecraft Free for iPad and iPhone!
Minecraft looked like a game built on the worst ideas and concepts in a modern game – long hours of grinding/mining, terrible graphics and basic controls and much more. Prior to its release, gamers speculated that it would become unpopular and end up a free to play game.
Instead, Minecraft rose up on the opposite end of the spectrum , as a game that is addictive, delightfully open ended, with great pixel art and allows for complete control. Users feel free, in control and creative. In fact, Minecraft turned out to be one of the best games created in this modern era.
To date, a whooping 10 million copies of the game has been sold. You surely must have heard about the game, but there could be reasons why you do not intend to purchase Minecraft. For some users, they are wondering “Is Minecraft free?” or “Is there a free version of Minecraft?”. While for others, it it was more because they did not get to try it out for themselves, and see Minecraft as a superficial, unworthy game. For both groups of people, picking up a free version of Minecraft would probably be a good idea. You can try out the free version of Minecraft as featured above, or check out our Ultimate Minecraft Guide for alternatives!
