Game Impressions

Not to impressed with survival mode so far. Maybe it's just me but I have only seen sheep and zombies. Also the zombies I have encountered are not really a threat as you can just dodge them very easy, kind of feel dumbed down for the iPhone.

That's actually because this is still beta/alpha >.> If you actually read the changelog, sheep and zombies were the only mobs added as an introduction of mobs into the iOS version.

Don't expect everything to be perfect. Yes, you want this to be Minecraft. But Notch isn't working on this version. Why? Because he's working on Cobalt, Scrolls, and updates for Minecraft along with the few people at Mojang (few compared to other game companies).

Anyone else having the fence issue, in which the fences are invisible until a gate is placed?

Yes, I am also having this issue. I'm not too thrilled about it too . Also, I am having an issue where I can't collect wood with an axe. However, I'm sure these bugs will be fixed in the next update (which Daniel said would come out quicker!)

I haven't had the wood issue, but I'm glad they'll be ironed out (somewhat quicker) - I'm excited for what it so come.

According to the change log, exactly the same stuff as the full version.

Thank you! Just re-downloaded the lite and yes - it has survival mode and flying. Looks like the build mode and survival are separate - don't see how one could switch to survival mode from an already-build world given how the menu system is set up.

Flying works a treat!
