Mojang have released a mini-Minecraft for the pocket-sized Raspberry Pi computer. Minecraft: Pi Edition is a modified version of the game's Pocket version for mobiles, adding new features to keep it in line with the educational philosophy at the heart of David Braben's £30 computer. Available as a free download, the game hopes to help people pick up programming - supporting a variety of languages to let users hack and modify the game's code.

A post on the game's website explains how it works. "You can start by building structures in the traditional Minecraft way, but once you've got to grips with the in-game features, there's opportunity to break open the code and use programming language to manipulate things in the game world. You'll be learning new skills through Minecraft."
