A new mobile game is now available for download for the owners of devices running under Google's Android operating system, namely Minecraft - Pocket Edition.

The new game was already made available on Google's mobile platform a few months ago, but it was exclusively available on the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY.

However, the team at Mojang in charge with the development of the mobile flavor of Minecraft did promise at the time that the software will arrive on more handsets, and they have just put it up for download via the Android Market.

“Imagine it, build it. Create worlds on the go with Minecraft - Pocket Edition,” the app's description reads.

“The new Minecraft - Pocket Edition allows you to build on the go. 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.”

The mobile game is now available for download for all devices that are based under Android 2.1 or newer flavors of the operating system, and can be found in the Android Market here. The mobile software costs $6.99 (around 5.21 Euros).

The new Minecraft - Pocket Edition mobile game for the Android platform should offer a nice range of features to those who will purchase and download it on their devices.

In the game users can easily build all kinds of things, the only limit being their imagination. They will have various types of blocks at their disposal, and will also be able to play with their friends.

Some of the main features the new mobile game arrives on devices with include:

- Randomized worlds
- Build anything you can imagine
- Build with 36 different kinds of blocks
- Invite and play with friends to your world (local wireless network)
- Save multi-player worlds on your own phone.

The Minecraft - Pocket Edition game for Android remains available for Xperia PLAY devices as well, and has even been optimized to work on these handsets.
