Minecraft for ios now avaliable, but DOESNT WORK ON OLD DEVICES.
« on: November 17, 2011, 12:52:28 AM »
Minecraft has arrived in the new Zealand app store!
You can get it here for 9.99
http://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/id479516143?mt=8
It should arrive in other app stores too.

NOW I AM VERY DISSAPOINTED ABOUT THIS APP
It REQUIRES 4.3 SO you need an iPhone 3gS or newer

SO what should we do?
Once it comes out in the US, please email and/or tweet angry letters to mojang demanding support for ios3/4, even if you dont want the app or play minecraft. The more people, the more they will listen.

I might just upgrade to 4.0 and grab Crafted from install0us (which was changed to free before it was pulled, so legal)

It has multiplayer that lets you play with others on the same wifi, but no servers. Even if you don't want it we should still contact Mojang...

LOL, did you think it would support Pre-A3 devices? Are you really that delusional? Minecraft can run out of memory on computers  with 4 Gigs of RAM, and you expect it to run on a Handheld device with 128MB of RAM? There is NO way this will come out for iOS 3.

So?

Minecrafted sucked.

Crafted was 2D.

Why can't I play Pokémon HeartGold on my GameBoy Colour? That is what you asking…
