Not in app store
So I signed up on Microsoft for Minecraft earth, and looked for it in the App Store. It’s not there. I’ve looked all over my iPhone X and there’s no sign of it. Ninjaboy3827 (talk) 21:11, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Expanding features, items and mobs section.
So i don’t remeber where i saw it i think it was in another wiki or forum but apparently there is now a horned sheep and a wooly cow. And that the moobloom can be milked for dandelion soup and can be killed to obtain a petal witch can be used to craft something, i don’t remember. And that when killed the cluckshroom dropped something that had to do with potion effects. We might need someone with access to the closed beta demo. Who’s with me?

- I'm on the early access. We need to write about gameplay as its not in here really. I've taken some screenshots too. Secretlondon123 (talk) 00:02, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
Tha actual game
I have access to the thing - Early Access version 0.6.1 . Our article isn't good as its based on press coverage. A simple example - potions aren't in game (yet). It doesn't explain how you actually play (and nowhere does really - including the game itself which has no tutorial).
I think the most useful thing I can do is upload screenshots. They need editing, and probably animating.
The game has multiple 'modes'.
Tappable mode (exploration mode?)
The thing I'm calling tappable mode is a bit like pokemon go. You walk down a map of your area which has things spawned on it. Some of them are mobs, some are resources. You click on the item and collect it by clicking three or so times (blocks seem to be 3, animals 4). Chests spawn (and despawn) and contain rarer items. There are things with beacons coming off which are adventures (another 'mode').
Mobs you capture go into your inventory. I've seen cows, pigs, sheep and chickens. You cannot do anything with them in this mode. You can place them on a build plate later.
There is basic crafting. Not all recipes are in the game - there are no chests (to craft) for example. There are flowers but you cannot make dyes out of them. There is granite but you cannot polish it. Crafting time increases with rarity. It can be sped up with rubies in classic f2p game style.
Items vary in rarity.
dirt, grass (item not block), poppy, gravel, sand, red mushroom, fern
cobble, granite, andesite, stone, diorite, think I got redstone dust once
I've only seen oak, birch and spruce so far. They have only dropped wooden logs.
There are no hostile mobs.
You place a small square grid - the game requires it to be in a lit area with a textured surface. There a small number of 8x8 build plates you can place - you get an extra one unlocked every 5 levels. You can also buy some more with rubies (currency) including 16x16 ones. You can dig down - your build plate is surrounded by bedrock.
If you put an animal in your task bar it will spawn on your block. If you then select your sword you can kill it for wool and lamb (if it's a sheep). I don't think you can cook the lamb yet.
I don't have an image of a spruce tree, nor of the first build plate as I changed it. I was thinking that the images after 1, 2 and 3 taps could be animated which is why I took a screenshot of each stage. Screenshots taken on an iPhone 8. I haven't done adventure mode yet.
The Bone Spider is an announced mob for Minecraft Earth. Was mentioned here. Is first MCE exclusive hostile mob variant. Assumed none have been found yet.
