Organic materials, such as trees, grass and plants, regenerate or can be replanted.

Metals, dirt, sand and stone do not, but since the size of the procedurally generated Minecraft world is IMMENSE (think Elite II: Frontier- and Daggerfall-like immense, theoretically unlimited, but eventually the world file will grow to massive for your storage or hardware), there will always be more material, provided you are ready for a hike.

(And hiking might be an overstatement. Since you can always dig downwards and outwards, the material available in the first few hundreds square meters of your starting area alone can last for weeks.)

That said, I will wait for survival mode (enemies and animals), and the refinements of the Adventure updates for Minecraft for Mac/PC, though with Notch's stated intention of creating a light portable version (a, to me, completely mystifying sentiment), I' not sure we will ever see this.

I believe that to be correct.

In my opinion, no since it's just creative mode which is basically just like Eden. If I were you, I'd wait for a price drop and see how the future updates roll along.

So it is big enough that you will never, ever run out of resources, no matter how much you dig.
No, I haven't, since I learned of Minecraft's existence a few months after I sold the one device I owned capable of running it.
And OH. I think that just that just blew through my conception of scale. Thanks, I think.

I'm somewhat partial to Ayjona's line of thinking, however. Trees and flowers can tide me over for a brief while, but I'd like to be assured of the inclusion of animals and enemies before making a purchase. The world doesn't seem truly alive to me otherwise.

9.99 with no survival mode? Ha, what a joke. Will wait for update for survival mode or price drop.

Until then, Junk Jack <3

Yeah, exactly. That's a steep price for no survival mode. You can basically play this version for free on their website.

Back to Junk Jack. Cheaper and Animals/Mobs.

Is there stuff like redstone, pistons, and stuff? I'd love to be able to test ideas on the fly, for like new tnt cannons or traps or stuff. Oh and can you grow plants and trees and stuff?

How overpriced for what it is.

No crafting, no collecting and no mobs.


Pass, next please.

Thanks I'll pass until a price drop, it's a bit expensive for another Eden (which I hardly played) for me junk jack is king 2D just seems to work so well for a portable game.

The price is quite peculiar - usually in NZ it ends in .69 and US will end in .99. I am not quite sure what the conversion will be. Perhaps it will be 9.99 across the board no matter the different rates? Just odd looking.

NZ decided that prices ending in .69 was too provocative and decided to change all their prices to .99.

I'm just kidding. I noticed that too, but the changed price can't be too far different from NZ's price.
