Minecraft breaks new ground on Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire is no mere eReader. It's been able to play games for a while, but now things are serious, with a version of Minecraft Pocket Edition designed specifically for Amazon hardware.

Minecraft Pocket Edition

...does what it says on the tin.

Previously, to get your blocky world-building fix in your reader, you had to resort to rooting the device, complicated procedures and third-party subscriptions. No more! Mojang has polished up a new app, making Minecraft a simple, one-click process - totally legit.

The game features:

  • Crafting
  • Randomized worlds
  • Build anything you can imagine
  • Build with several different kinds of blocks
  • Invite and play with friends to your world (local wireless network)
  • Save multi-player worlds on your own phone

Want in? It'll cost you US$7, and it's available right now from the Amazon store.
