Minecraft-clone Survivalcraft now available in the Marketplace
Into Minecraft? Of course you are. That also means you're an addict! Admit it, you builder block junkie. Well, the bad news is there is no official Minecraft game for Windows Phone (though we could envision that happening someday), the good news is there is an unofficial clone now available.
Survivalcraft, which we mentioned a few days ago, is now available for a modest $1.99 with a free trial. From the app description:
Sounds like a cool way to kill some time on our phone, so we're gonna give this a try. Hit us up in comments, especially if you're a Minecraft player, and let us know if the game is yay or nay. Grab Survivalcraft here in the Marketplace.
Thanks, Peter S., for the heads up!

This game is great, I'm glad SOMEONE decided to make a Minecraft clone for Windows Phone, and I hope it improves over time, just as Minecraft has.
<strong>Note: The trial goes for a whole 2-3 minutes. That sucks!</strong>
Loving this, but why oh why is this game so adictive!
But at the same time... why the hell cant i make a pick axe? O.o
Also, the game looks terrible. Minecraft for Android looks much, much better. Won't be a purchase until the developer does a complete overhaul of both the UI and graphics.
The UI for me isnt too bad, it could have been ALOT worse, and i cant really see how it could be massivley better to be honest...
Ad support would take up far too much space on the screen and make it unplayable.
I think it's a pretty bad layout and design, I'll probably post a mock-up of something better for the forum.
