    I would love it if you were able to play this on the PB!! I have only seen videos of it being played (BlueXephos youtube page) but I am wanting to get it. I didn't know it was an over the browser game though. From the looks of the game it wouldn't seem to take much to run it, hopefully it is able to run it.

    the current version of minecraft is a memory hog. the browser version doesn't work i've already contacted the developer. they have their sites set on android, and at the pace they develop they will probably launch 2 years from now on droid.....

    Also keep in mind that the official version of Minecraft is written in Java. It would have to be rewritten in Flash and/or JavaScript (not the same thing as Java) to be usable on the PlayBook. I think this may be yet another app we won't see until more SDK options are available.

    The developer has just demoed Minecraft for Android. Hopefully they will port the game to the Playbook when this functionality is released.

    Android is a Java-based platform, so the port wasn't a complete rewrite. Hopefully we'll have more luck here once the Android "player" for the PB is available. (or if someone ports a real JRE to the PB once the NDK is out)

    There are quite a few minecraft clones out there, how about talking to the devs to port them or how about: Minetest which is open source.... would be a good little project for someone to port it over (its written in c++ so can be a native app)

    If you want to run straight, take you finger off the right-pad. Than it should be fine
    You also have to wait 1 sec after each jump to jump

    Use filecrop.com to search for it ! Blockworld is oke but far from real minecraft. MineDroid uses A REAL MINECRAFT MAP ! (Under 1.8)
    If i can get an open source version, we can change the game pads to the newer D-pad's

    Not on filecrop ... Minedroid can be annoying when you fall in those holes lol. Oh well hopefully BB10 will bring it to us. I'll be waiting for yours as well
