Surviving in Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Episode 3 - Getting Murdered

By , on September 8, 2014

Despite the rather grim title, I did enjoy most of my time with Minecraft: PE this week.

I made lots of progress with my little mine, created new types of tools from even better materials, built a furnace, and even found a hidden underground cave.

But there was also murder by some stupid jerk that creeped up on me.

See the highs and the lows, in the video below.

I suggest, Peter, you tame a wolf! And also a cat! And a hovering, sky waterfall on top of your place! Or even a hovering, sky MAGMA ISLAND on top of your place if you're willing to die a lot and a lot of magma deaths.

Jerk-bag's proper name is Creeper. They blow up.

Wolves help fighting whatever attacks you, and cats can repel or scare the Creepers away. Unfortunately cats aren't in the Pocket Edition, so I suppose just put torches all around your base (mobs don't spawn in lit areas) and devise a trap of some sort? A moat with cactus at the bottom perhaps.

These are great tips! I'll see what I can do about taming a wolf, and get to work putting up torches wherever I can.
