  • Minecraft is Now (Unofficially) on DS

    By Chris Pereira

    PC sandbox title Minecraft is on its way to both Xperia Play and Xbox Live Arcade, but it won't stop there. We've seen modders make the game playable with a Wii Remote, and now modder smealum has taken the entire game and moved it to a Nintendo platform.

    As the video above demonstrates, a working, but very basic version of Minecraft is up and running on DS. Games can't be saved, and it's the Classic version, meaning you're free to build without having to worry about running into enemies. The basic functionality of adding and removing blocks is there, as is basic terrain generation. According to smealum, maps stream from the file, "meaning really big maps can be used (1024 x 1024 maps are fully playable)."

    The 161kb file can be downloaded here. You'll need a way to get your file onto your DS; not just anyone will be able to play it. The inability to save is a real downer, as the beauty of Minecraft is building your world over time -- it's not necessarily the sort of thing you'd want to play from scratch every time.

    This is, of course, a modder's project and not an official release, so its omission is excusable. The fact that it works at all is very impressive.

    I don't mean to sound like a dick, but Minecraft is a java game (rather fun too), so it's really not impressive to get it running on another console... It's rather easy to port code, especially java since it's not an executable, it's bytecode emulated by the run time environment...

      it is a great opportunity for young individuals looking for this stuff. If one can get in contact with the Minecraft server list then their costs will also be low. This will allow the company to earn more

        Minecraft Earth is very impressive. Reminds me of the good old Minecraft days in fact, the excitement, the thrill! All Minecraft Players would be excited to play this!

          There is no difference at all, play on what you have. I can also advise you to visit a site where they can help you with this difficult question, and you can also find minecraft survival servers. I'm sure some of these servers might be useful to you. There is a lot of information on this subject. I hope my information was helpful to you. Have a nice day.
