Game

Minecraft: Pocket Edition brings the huge sandbox world of Minecraft to the small screen. In a game that’s all about crafting – and mining, we suppose – it can be hard to keep track of the possibilities in store. It’s easy to find yourself wondering what you can make, how to make it and where to find the materials.

PocketGamer has come up with a very handy three-part reference guide to help you on your quest to build the ultimate pixelated fortress. It shows you how to craft anything in the game, from a simple cake to the iconic diamond pickaxe. Check out the three main sections below, which cover crafting items, smelting and stonecutting, and raw materials.

Minecraft Pocket Edition recipe guide – Crafting

“In the world of Minecraft, you can make most objects by crafting. Open your inventory and tap on the crafting table to start combining items. Remember that you’ll need to make a crafting table – and then tap on that – to make the bigger and more elaborate objects.”

Minecraft Pocket Edition recipe guide – Smelting and Stonecutting

“You need to provide enough fuel so that the material completely melts (represented by the arrow that changes from grey to white) before your fuel is used up. You can put in a lot of fuel, and you can collect any leftovers when the smelting process is over.”

Minecraft Pocket Edition recipe guide – Raw Materials

“If you’re looking for the materials that are used in the crafting or smelting recipes on the other pages, you’ll often need to find those resources in the wild. The list below will help you find those naturally occurring materials in your randomly generated Minecraft world.”

If you’ve yet to experience the worldwide hit that is Minecraft, load up on guides and grab the fully-featured Pocket Edition from the App Store ($6.99/£4.99).
