Those of you with a Microsoft Windows Phone can now get in on the sandbox action.

Another device now has the capability to play Minecraft: Pocket Edition - Windows Phone's, to be exact. It won't be too long, at this rate, before we're able to play the blocky sandbox game on a potato.

The Windows Phone version of Minecraft was announced a couple of months ago via one of the developer's Twitter accounts, shortly after it was revealed that Microsoft were set to buy the game and studio for $2.5 billion.

The game costs £4.99 through the Windows Phone Store on Windows Phones running 8.1.
