Minetest on retroid pocket 3 ?
from skele_tron@kbin.social to retrogaming@lemmy.world on 26 Dec 2023 12:56

Are there any specific setup steps i would need to take, since its android, it should work, but it also has hardware buttons, so it does not need touch controll. Is it worth a try, or should minecraft in some form be better ?


threaded - newest

Are you new to Minetest in general? The “mineclone2” game available in Minetest is almost exactly identical to minecraft 1.12 in terms of features, but with tons of things in the newer versions also implemented on top.

The last time I used it, some things that were possible on a desktop were inaccessible via the touch input on Android, and needed a keyboard. Maybe things will be better with the hardware buttons though - wouldn’t hurt to give it a try IMO

Hey, i managed to get it up and running, and its only sadly playable with touch ( and the display is tiny ) but my kid has had so much fun! I really need to get something with a bigger screen
