Master for Minecraft-Launcher review
What we love Minecraft for is that total realism we face when entering the world. Even gods you pretend to be have their limitations in digital reality. You cannot change time of day, lighting, appearance of your world. Unless you turn to some other divinity that has all these powers. It sounds a bit pagan, but you’re playing with nature powers, so your Pantheon has room for more than one god.
Master for Minecraft launches the game from its own sandbox where the parameters can be edited the way you want them. That opens many additional doors for a curious explorer. Of course, this app requires the main Minecraft app you should download and activate first.
If Minecraft is just another game for you, there won’t be much use out of it. Ye
s, you can add new mobs, new seeds, new maps to start from. But it looks like just an addon pack, nothing a devoted gamer hasn’t seen.
Gamers can find only a few enhancements in it. A floating window, selector of weather, mini map and HP display are good, and many will appreciate that. There are also new mobs and a one-click building feature for simplest shapes, like spheres, cuboids or lines. Well, not so few of those enhancements, in fact. But not necessary for true hardcore fans valuing the original.
But if Minecraft is an art in your eyes, oh, come on and download Master for Minecraft-Launcher right now! It’s like switching from drawing with one pencil to full watercolors set. The app has a lot of textures, materials, prepared skins and other stuff that enhances your creativity and raises it up to a new level. The skins can be previewed in 3D mode, so you can get the full impression of them before downloading or buying. Mods can affect living creatures, weapons, furniture and so on. New maps can be made especially for survival, adventures, PvP mode and even parkour.
Well, if you had no material to make some particular building or recreate a location from real life, a movie or a game, you can find it there. And if you’re a designer and you want to enrich Minecraft world with your own inventions, here’s the place for it.
The maps you download become available through your start menu you enter again to play. Make sure you are logged in, or you may be looping around unable to start. You may do it with your Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus accounts.
The app is available in 20 languages, the most popular European and Asian ones. This support is just as rich as native Minecraft’s.
In fact, most of this app is about design. It’s completely Minecraft-styled and rooted down in its aesthetics (though the developer is not affiliated with Mojang or Microsoft). So the app looks like a native extension to Minecraft, organic and integral. The fonts, the pixelized graphics, the menus as they appear – they all look just the way they should look in that cubic universe. The menus are organized very logically, the fonts are easily readable.
The only thing that reveals its third-party origins is portrait orientation. The native Minecraft mode is landscape, so you have to turn the phone around each time you switch. If not for that, the integration would have been perfect.
As you launch the app, it seems that you just launch Minecraft, and there are only some pop-ups that make some difference. But it all changes when you tap “Login.” The app reveals all of its potential on the start screen. You can download maps, skins, textures, modes, addons, and seeds right from it, and all the stuff you download will apply to the game seamlessly.
The menus are designed very carefully so you can reach whatever section you need just from anywhere. As you download some map, you can immediately play it by entering the main menu with your maps list. When you need to make a payment, it’s available right from the coins page.
Some issues have been noticed too. For example, the app may report that your device is offline, while in fact you’re online, and other apps access Internet connection well.
Cross-platform use 3/5
The compatibility hardly depends on whether the original Minecraft runs on your device. We tried it on modern devices based on Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8890, and it all went well. But older SoCs won’t grant you smooth work, even if they can handle Minecraft itself. So it totally depends on whether Minecraft works on your device.
Though the app itself is free, the content provided in it can be paid. You make your payments with in-game currency, and the price is shown in coins. Coins can be bought from within the app: 100 coins per $1, no matter how many you purchase. Coins are necessary to join the Master Club, so you can get rid of ads, wear a special symbol, get an exclusive skin and get access to premium content.
Another type of game currency is M-blocks. They can be obtained by completing some tasks, like watching video ads, downloading other games or fulfilling some tasks in them. The M-blocks can also bring you some good stuff, but the premium is for coins.
If you’re just a Minecraft player or a beginner, you don’t need this app. It doesn’t bring that much you can eat at once, it takes some time for learning. But if you have already mastered survival and primitive building in Minecraft and now you wish for something more, well, this one will extend your possibilities to new unreachable limits.Collapse
For real Minecraft addicts, it’s a real cave of treasures; some of them may cost you, but enhancing your world is worth this.
