6. Survival mode: Seek shelter by night, and have your torches ready!

Minecraft Pocket Edition: Top 10 tips, hints, and cheats!

Mobs and monsters will come out at night and that's something you need to be prepared for. It's pretty much impossible to have enough time to build a house for protection on your first day. Instead, dig a cutout into the stone that you can hide in. I typically dig about 8 or 10 deep and then round a corner out for me to hide in.

Light also keeps away mobs and monsters so be sure you have torches on hand. You can easily stick a few on the entrance to your cave. This should keep mobs away for the most part.
