Minecraft Pocket Edition gets a huge update with infinite worlds and more
Minecraft Pocket Edition has just gotten quite a lot bigger. The mobile version of the mega-popular game has received what developer Mojang is calling the "biggest update EVER!", and that is quite accurate. There is a lot to see in the new version 0.9.0, but the biggest addition is to the worlds, which are now procedurally generated, meaning they are infinite.

Beyond that, the worlds have a lot more in them than before. The update adds caves, tons of new flowers, new biomes (including mesas, jungles, swamps and extreme hills), as well as abandoned mineshafts, villages, and other stuff to explore, like lakes, and monster rooms. There are also new beings to inhabit those worlds, including wolves, endermen, and Mooshrooms. And, of course, there are new blocks including Monster Eggs and huge mushroom blocks. 

There has also been a change made to the controls, adding a new "interaction" button, which should keep you from accidentally punching something that you don't want to. Last on the change log is the requisite bug fixes, but we're amused to say that Mojang has been nice enough to note that there were likely new bugs introduced along with the new features. 

Minecraft Pocket Edition has been updated for both Android and iOS. If you haven't purchased the game, it will cost you $6.99 on either platform.

Try making a nether portal. You still can't. Also there are no squids in the river and no boats.
