How many of these apple fanboys topic are there really? Lrn2search ffs.
Correction, it can be run on Android since that is based on Java. Apple devices are based on C, C++ and Objective-C. Which would require an engine rewrite. Notch has said he is intrested in porting a smaller version of Minecraft to Android in the future though.
Hope that first bit wasn't directed at me. I hate Apple.
Correction to your correction (or subjugating it, rather): the iPod/Pad/Touch can run Java applications, they're just not natively supported.
Did anyone consider that it would be hard or impossible to get minecraft to play on a mobile device due to performance issues. People seem to think that just because minecraft has low res textures, its as easy to run as say doom. Just loook at the forums, plenty of people have to play on small or tiny settings, with fast graphics, on their computers. I would be suprised if you could get this to run on any mobile device.
Minecraft can already run on iTouch/iPhone, as well as Android, since the game runs in Java. But it's not supported, and Notch has mentioned he won't even look at supporting it (at least for now).
A DS version would be awesome, and is probably do-able. I'm not sure if Java has been ported as homebrew to the DS yet.
They have something called Java2NDS, but interpreted languages are always slow, and so far the app can only run one .class file at a time. No, it wouldn't work, although it would be fun if it did. I'd like to see Minecraft for the PSP...
As a result, he himself took it off from the App Store and is now waiting for confirmation. Honestly, I don't think he'll get it.
He doesn't really need it, anyway.
From Minecrafts copyright section:
Any tools you write for the game from scratch belong to you.
You're free to do whatever you want with screenshots and videos of the game, but don't just rip art resources and pass them around.
Plugins for the game also belong to you and you can do whatever you want with them, including selling them for money.
Maybe he actually respect notch and wants to know if he would mind?
