The mods and stuff are really cool. One problem is that there are a lot of bugs, and the app crashes as I try to load the MineTest game when I choose a mod with a bug in it that I didn't know has issues instead of showing the script error so I could see what the problem is. Sometimes laggy, but it may have to do with the fact that I'm playing this on my phone.

Minetest is great! This android port isn't. Minetest is an open source game engine that runs custom games written in lua. It's more like roblox than minecraft, in that regard. One custom game, Nodecore, is *very* worth a look. This client is a pretty direct port of the desktop version, with some touch controls slapped on. It doesn't appear to recognize my hardware controller buttons at all. The touch controls are clunky at best, too.

Touch controls are... weird at best, and inefficient at worst. The touch controls are not what I was expecting.. double tap to place/interact with blocks is weird but usable. The worst touch control is the combat mechanics, you have to hold your finger on the screen over the enemie your trying to do damage to.. not only does this take time to do its also very buggy, if you don't hold your tap over the enemie when your about to swing it straight up won't do damage, sometimes doesn't swing at all.
