Yeah, very stupid.

Any chance of this on the iPhone in the future?

This is nice. How much more extra space does the high resolution texture pack take up? Also, are there any plans to include an option to invert the vertical aiming?

The textures are included in the download, just not enabled.

If I get more requests for inverted aiming, I'd be happy to add it!

Best,

I love the game! I bought MC IAP, and I am going to get the HD version. Is there a chance of there being a multiplayer or not? Great job. Oh, and if you do make multiplayer, you could make it an IAP.
