The objective of Minecraft Pocket Edition is the same as the original PC and Console Edition counterparts, where players build virtual realities in a sandbox-like environment.  If you are a newbie to Minecraft Pocket Edition, you might be confused for the blocks, trees and animals in front of you. While once you know how to play it, you might find yourself hooked. Well, here we gathered the best tips and guide that you should know.

The difference between survival mode and creative Mode

Two main game play modes are supported, you may heavily prefer one over the other. Creative mode gives you endless supplies of all inventory, there are no monsters and mobs to combat, and you can craft and create until your heart's content. And survival mode tasks players with killing monsters and creating their own living quarters. You’re able to collect your own items, plus you can find sheep to decorate with wool.

Assaulting some trees at the very beginning

The first time you step into the digital landscape of Minecraft, it’s a bit daunting. You won’t have much items to work with and not too much material for your crafting needs. The sun’s going to be out for a little while, but you won’t live too long once the darkness envelopes the world. So before your inevitable death, just do one simple thing – punch the living ish out of a tree. You’ll get your first pair of logs after assaulting a few trees for a good while. Use your punching skills to knock some dirt blocks out of dirt and some sand blocks out of sand. Punch and bass everything in sight so you’ll end up with a healthy amount of resources.

What to build with your gathered resources?

You need the resources harvested to build even simple things such as tools and work tables. From the menu bar, select the Craft menu and create a Crafting Table. You'll have a hard time creating tools without one. You'll only need one since they are reusable. To create a Crafting table, create some wooden planks and an option will appear for the table. Once you have the Crafting table, create a few tools such as a wooden axe. You can break through stone a lot faster with a pickaxe than you can with your hands. After you've harvested some stone blocks, create some stone tools on your Crafting table. You'll need to create the Pickaxe to harvest important resources such as coal.

Create a shelter for nightfall

You've been gathering and crafting items for a while. You're probably asking yourself to what end. Make sure you've harvested an ample amount of wood and coal. You'll need to craft torches to keep the monsters and mobs away that come out at night. It's nearly impossible to have enough time to build a house for protection on your first day (unless you're an experience player). Instead, dig a cutout into the stone that you can hold up in. Doesn't have to be elaborate, just about eight or 10 blocks deep and then a corner to stay out of sight. Torches keep mobs and monsters away, so be sure you've crafted some and stick a few near the entrance to your cave.

Don't dig a hole you can't get out of

Sometimes in Minecraft you can't resist the urge to dig. Just make sure when you do, you aren't digging a hole you can't get out of. I've been guilty of this and it's not easy, especially if you don't have any torches on hand and have no sticks to make any. It's another reason I suggest always having at least a few sticks on you, if not full torches. It's a pain to have to fashion makeshift steps in the dark, and the torches will make it easier if you do happen to get into a tight spot.
