    I love this game so much! It’s so fun how you get to create things and explore Minecraft! But there’s two things that get on my nerves like crazy. I’m not saying any of them are bad. The first thing is the End. If any of you reading this have played Minecraft or been to the end you probably know what I’m talking about. The end is basically the end of the game. You defeat the End Dragon with enderman all around you. Once you defeat the End Dragon. There’s this really small portal that takes you to the End City. So when I was playing creative mode and I was in the end I went into the End City portal. When I was in the End City I accidentally broke the portal back to where I killed the end dragon where the portal back to the over world is. So I couldn’t necessarily die because I was in creative mode. So now I’m in the End City trying to figure how to get out. And making another End portal to get back home didn’t work. I even tried building a Nether portal to get back to the over world because I built a nether portal there too. So now I’m stuck in the End City. The other thing is that whenever I’m playing on servers in Minecraft there’s a report thing everywhere you go like report player, report building, report chat, and more than you can imagine. It’s a good thing but it just gets on my nerves sometimes. Other than that Minecraft is an amazing game (srry Roblox). Plus Mojang is my favorite game creator of all time.

    Love it

    I love this app and I’ve been playing it for years and I only played it on moblie so far one thing I don’t like about Minecraft is that updates come on pc first I’m very impatient my self but I don’t like that I would love for updates to come at the same time it’s a very good game over all and it’s very addictive but I would love to make some fixes and add more mobs I think that would be cool I know u don’t have time to answer this or make more mobs (which u don’t have to) but I would say add more mobs if u have times I would also suggest new blocks which I would love to see more blocks in the game it would be way more fun also more food we need more food u obviously don’t have to do what I’m saying but I also would like new portals and dimensions that would be cool but I love the game so much me my friend and my brother love playing this game it’s really fun to play with each other I love thinking of stuff and making it on Minecraft it’s good but kinda Brutal it’s ok tho and I see how it’s rated at an older age because the game has killing in it which I don’t mind myself but some people can be trigged by it but overall best game in the world (also please don’t take this as me forcing u do anything or make more stuff I know ur busy with making the game and being in ur everyday life and I know u won’t respond if u do have time to respond thank u and if u don’t it’s ok we all have life’s take this review with a grain of salt)

    The best game ever!!

    (long review) This app is very old but has a lot of new features!! New spawn egg; Axolotls!! There is a very rare chance to get a blue axolotl (a dark blue not light blue)!! In school, I researched about Axolotls and this is now my favorite app!! If you will choose survival, then (my opinion) you should first go in creative and build a house to survive in! Your house will be amazing! You can make your own house as big as you want it to be! You can decorate the house!! Once your down with that, you can go in survival and then you can survive! You can explore around the whole entire map!! If you did flat map, then there wouldn’t really be any mobs to kill. You would just be staying in your house. But you can make farms! Farms would be great for survival because you need food to survive!! You will have a hunger bar so you will know when to eat. I found out something you can make; LED Lights!! Just go in inventory and type in “glow”. You will get glowing ink (or whatever it is called). Then you need some dye! You can choose any color to make the LED Lights color! Last but not least, you need a sign! The wall has to be wood to match the sign or it won’t look great. Place the sign on the wooden wall and type in anything you want! Use the color dye and tap the sign. Then use the glowing ink and turn on night or midnight on. You will see the LED Lights glow in the dark!! I hope this helps you to download this app!

    Weird custom skin glitch

    I’ve been playing Minecraft PE since 2011 and it’s awesome! But ever since Character Creator has been added to the game, my custom skins have been looking off. I use slim-armed skins because I prefer them over classic skins but the glitch only occurs on slim-armed skins. Let’s say you have a slim-armed skin, and you wanted a unique design on each leg. Like different-lengthened socks, or a flower on one and a star on the other. Then when you upload the skin on the game, whatever way you designed the right leg (it looks like the left leg if you look straight at the skin) gets copy and pasted automatically onto the left leg (right leg if you look at the skin straight at the face). It looks distorted, as I don’t know if other players can or cannot see the error besides yourself, but it’s basically both legs are symmetrical while a lot of skin designers like not making symmetrical, and the second layer on the leg that gets changed to looking like the other stays. So basically the glitched leg looks exactly like the other leg that looks perfectly fine, but has second layer on it. Like then both legs would have like a flower on it but the star’s second layer is stuck on top of the copy and pasted flower. Pretty odd right? For me it makes me feel like I have OCD, I can’t stand skins that have something off on it, sorry. It doesn’t do the glitch on classic skins though. So, if you can fix it, please do.

    The old days..

    Yes, it’s true, I’m an OG. I’ve been playing cave game, now Minecraft for as long as it’s been out. I remember how you could press g or h and you could “Clone” yourself. The old days of classic. I remember when there was a girl in Minecraft, and the old avatars.. (Notch messed up a bit..) it’s a fun and awesome game. The days of beta were the best. I remember surprise Friday or Friday surprise, but then it stopped. Until an exception- Surprise Saturday. Ah yes. I remember why polar bears were added in the game, and the reason. Jeb’s wife (I think it’s Jeb’s..) liked polar bears, so that’s why they were added. The original Mobil lite version, and I remember when Minecraft PE was free. All this time it’s been downloaded in my cloud storage, so I never had to buy it. (Heh) This game never stops improving. But of course, I’m more of a Java version myself, of course. The days of me and the boys, staying up all night, gaming, building whatever we could. I also remember the day when Microsoft bought Mojang, or did they buy Minecraft? Anyways. The first minecon was about 30 people, mostly Notches’ family. The good ol days of Minecraft. A few things could be changed though. The shooting speed of skeletons is very high, I dislike that, I have some other things, but I don’t want to keep you from doing your jobs. Thanks so much for these amazing 12 years of Minecraft! You guys rock! I can’t wait for the cave update! :)

    A lifelong friend

    I recall my days as a child in elementary school when this game first gained popularity. All my peers were chattering about a seemingly endless canvas, a world so filled with animals and landmarks, yet so empty to the creative mind. A world to be filled with whatever you wish, all in your pocket. To this day, I still believe this is the best purchase I have ever made in my lifetime. Any boring, gloomy day was instantly changed upon starting up this masterpiece of an app. Any player regardless of age has the opportunity to escape to a place where your imagination can flow endlessly. A place to escape the sometimes harsh realities of the real world. I am now a teen in highschool, awaiting my days until graduation as well as my days until adult life. I recently started up the app after years of inactivity due to the minuscule amount of time available for leisure nowadays, especially for the average highschool student. I noticed the changes made to the game. And then when sunset arrived, memories came flooding back. The memories of summer nights spent with friends in this little world that taught us so much. A game that taught us to never put a boundary to our imagination. As I reminisced, I realized how much the game has shaped me as a person. As friends, days, months, and years went in and out of my life, this game has always remained by my side. A lifelong friend. Thank you mojang. Thank you for changing my life.

    This game is great but....

    You know how you add so many new mods and creatures I wish you would put in the game a new mod that foxes can have babies like cats and dogs if you do you do that can you add one more minute if a cat or a dog has baby or even a fox you’ll have like at least two or three like in real life! In Minecraft and vanilla it should be easier they get packs like the dragon pack in the pack that let you get married and stuff ( like you can have kids ). I know it’s weird but I really want to add these or like fix it and when I try to turn my head in the game it like glitches out I’m down left right and I’m only looking down to see if there is diamonds below me. And I wish you didn’t have to be special in the game to have friends and make like servers! And I think you should add like toys and treats you can give to the dogs and treats that you can give to cats and like stuff for the animals and you should like make new blocks like pillows or cloud blocks they would like stop you’re falling from a high distance at least two blocks! I’ve known Minecraft ever since I was a little or girl and I think the sword what Minecraft mean and thank you so much riding fox says it’s the best. So pls add please Atlees things that I said! And I think you should add dragons just for fun :). And I think you should be able to ride the dragon. So thanks for listening and your game is the best game ever!

    Amazing but a few things...

    Ok, I have been playing Minecraft for years. Each update is better then the last, adding amazing animals and new objects. However I have noticed in the recent update, TONS of new bugs and issues have occurred. Such as, sometimes when I am crafting something, I craft it and then go back in the crafting table. But my item is still there. I try to remove it, but it just replaces itself with another one. I end having to close the app and reopen it. Another problem that has recently developed is, whenever I go into chat when I am on a sever, my game immediately freezes, then crashes and knocks me out of the app. Another thing that has recently happened is when I am playing and go into my inventory, it freezes and won’t unfreeze. One more is, sometimes when I go into the nether, it stays frozen on the “loading terrain” screen. Other than these glitches and bugs, I HIGHLY recommend this game. Whenever I want to play a fun game, this will always be my first choice. With the endless building ideas, the challenge of defeating the bosses, and playing countless games and tests Minecraft is the best game out there and will make you play for hours. A few animal ideas are: Bears, birds, snakes, frogs, mice, sharks, squirrel, elephant, lion, monkey, butterfly, crab, deer, penguin, kangaroo, koala, raccoon, alligator or crocodile and more types of dogs. Thank you for reading!

    Great! But it won’t let me even open it.

    (Keep in mind, this is the mobile version, PE) It’s such a great game and I love it, but recently it’s been getting more buggy than ever. A few glitches that I have experienced that get very annoying are things such as, when a friend joins, I’ll be wearing their skin, and they’ll be wearing mine (in their POV). It gets annoying when I join only to be wearing their skin. Another thing is that the game constantly kicks me out. I’ll be playing and my screen will freeze a lot. Keep in mind, I’ve tried everything. I’ve deleted tons of apps, cleared data from things, just to make sure that I have space on my device (and it’s not that). The most recent glitch for me, however, (which is why I’m writing this) doesn’t even let me into the game. I’ve tried purging all my apps again to clear even more space and I don’t know what else to do. It gets to the last couple of bars in the loading screen and freezes. It doesn’t kick me out, just freezes on that and won’t go into the game. I’m becoming impatient, waiting for it to go into the game and it still won’t. I swipe up the app then go on it again, only for the same result, over and over. No matter how many apps I’ve had before, it’s never done this and I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to delete the app for fear of losing all my data and worlds. Anyone have any suggestions??

    A few new mobs I would like to be in Minecraft

    Hi! I just thought of a few new mobs I would like for the developers to add into Minecraft! I hope they at least add in one of them. 1. Skele-Fish. It is a fish that can be found in all water sources in every biome, except for swamps. It can only spawn in when the world is in easy, normal, or hard. It can drop up to 3 bones when killed, it doesn’t attack you unless if you attack it first, (just like when you hit a wolf in survival when it isn’t tamed to anyone in that world) it deals three hearts when it attacks you, and it has a body made of bones with no eyes. 2. Black Bear. A bear with a brown snout, brown belly, and all the rest is black fur. It can only be found in Taiga (spruce forest) biomes. It has the same body that the polar bear does. It eats raw fish of any type and sweet berries, but you cannot tame them, you can only breed them (just like the foxes). They can spawn when the world is in peaceful, easy, normal, or hard. But when it is peaceful, when you attack them they won’t attack you back. But when it isn’t in peaceful when you attack one, they deal 4 hearts when the player is in survival. 3. Penguin. It only spawns in snowy plains and on icebergs. They eat raw fish of any type, but you cannot tame them, you can only breed them. They have a white belly and the rest is all-black. They do not attack you when you hit them in easy, normal, or hard.

    Minecraft is an amazing game!!💕💕

    I love Minecraft! I’ve been playing it since I was 8 years old, and it’s come a long way since then. Most games I play I usually play them for about a month or two, three at the most, and then forget about it. But Minecraft is different. It’s stuck with me for a long time now (almost 6 years). It’s a great game to play with friends and family, whether you want to create a massive structure or survive in the wilderness while fighting monsters, or do a bit of both. However, like every game, it does need some improvements. First of all, I suggest that it have a wider variety of animals in the game, (elephants, lions, tigers, sharks, etc). Also, I think their should be more options of furniture, especially in creative mode, rather than having to use steps as chairs. There are also a few glitches that can be annoying. For example, if you add to many mobs in creative, it will lag out your game. Also, there was this one time that I had to delete and reinstall the game because it wouldn’t let me open up the game. Regardless of some minor issues, this game is absolutely phenomenal and highly suggest downloading it! My advice to you is to first read the “how to”, it will tremendously help you get a head start on the game. Once you download this game, you won’t be able to stop playing! Trust me, you won’t regret getting it!!!💕💕

    An Honest Opinion

    Mojang, thank you so much for making the best game this planet has ever seen. I played MCPE one time for a couple minutes on a friends tablet almost 6 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve then watched java and bedrock YT videos up until the point when I downloaded PE this April. One thing I did miss about bedrock though was that the ambience noises were removed. I’m so happy you re-added them with the nether update. I look forward to more updates like the nether update, although not any that are too massive, because people like me (and there are a lot of us) don’t want to lose the simplicity of Minecraft we grew up with. We all want improvements (bug fixes and Java parity specifically on this version) but we don’t massive changes that make Minecraft unrecognizable. For example, the cave update everyone wants, every one expects a massive change but don’t realize it would completely strip Minecraft if it’s simple mining aspect. I am probably the only person in the world who doesn’t want a cave update, but I just don’t want Minecraft to become something else. I’m sorry this is so long, and I feel bad if any devs actually read this, but I’ve wanted to get this off my chest for a while. Please don’t strip Minecraft’s simplicity from it. This is the game we grew up on, please don’t make it a different game. Thank you, and have a great day.

    I love love love Minecraft!

    Minecraft is one of my all-time favorite games to play! I love seeing all of the different updates that are added. Recently, I went at least 2 months without playing which really sucked (STAY IN SCHOOL KIDS) but when I did return to my Minecraft world, there was so much new stuff waiting for me to explore! I think survival is a fun mode if you’re up for a challenge. Then there are people like me. I start with creative and build everything I want (sometimes I get lucky and find a village) and stock up on everything. I mean EVERYTHING. From food to blocks to animals to weapons, I never want to be caught by a monster in survival without the proper weapon! The villagers are really fun to trade with. When I play Minecraft, I listen to the sound on my airpods and I love the noise that villagers make! I recently made a new world titled “Covid is killing my brain cells” where I used everything from the inventory. I have my own little zoo and a very enforced prison where I keep the monsters. Ok I didn’t use EVERYTHING. I didn’t use endermans because (1) they scare the heck out of me and (2) they could just teleport out of their prison cell and murder me ruthlessly in my sleep. I have an aquarium too with all the sea animals. Whoever thought to add dolphins is my new best friend! So what I’m trying to say is that I absolutely love Minecraft and would recommend it to everyone! ❤️

    This is my fav game In my opinion there is not any other game that is better but I want to put a big thing I want as an update pls!! I love baby villagers I want the creater of minecraft to put a thing in the settings button that says something like any villager you want can turn into a baby forever. And that if you feed the baby’s potato’s they will be your kid so you can play roleplay where they act like real life babys like when they want something to get or some milk to drink they will cry and things but there should be a button on that in settings so you can turn it on and off or that if you click on the villagers you can pick things like this villager play as I baby in roleplay or I follows you and a button that says learn on him where you teach them to talk and walk and crawl. I am sorry that this is sooooo long but I want to be able to love baby villagers and keep them as babys and be there mom. I would also like if you could like if you eat something that you can find in villages and in timpels that if you eat it you have a big belly and one night you have a baby villager and you have to be it’s mom. But only add it for there is a button where you can switch it on and off. Sorry this is long pls respond back pls pls pls I really recommend getting this app it is the best EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER and a thousand more EVERS!lol!!😂sorry it is long bye get the app
