Well, it's has finally arrived and it's looking as lovely as any Notch creation, only with the added bonus of being fully portable and adapted for thoughtful gaming on the go. What am I talking about? Minecraft: Pocket Edition apparently, the spankin' new version of the indie mega-hit for Android, that has kindly been optimized for the Xperia PLAY phone, but will also run smoothly on the smartphone of your choice. Go on, grab it from the Android Market.
Now, if you've never heard of Minecraft before and have somehow avoided being exposed to the indie phenomenon that has sold over 3 million copies on the PC, let me just point you to its official site. It's got a demo that will show you just how brilliant its immensely deep crafting mechanics are and how wonderful its huge, procedurally generated worlds can be. You can indeed build anything you can imagine with it. Here's what the devs have to say for their game:

Use blocks to create masterpieces as you travel, hangout with friends, sit at the park, the possibilities are endless. Move beyond the limits of your computer and play Minecraft everywhere you go.
