One of the most often-requested applications for ODROIDs is the Minecraft client. Any ODROID model can run the Minecraft server, especially the optimized Spigot version.

Now, thanks to the combined efforts of @ptitseb and @meveric, Minecraft runs on ARM Linux. It’s easy to set up using GLShim, so just follow the instructions in our feature article and start mining!
Along with Minecraft, we also present Easy RPG, which lets you write your own role-playing games in LUA, along with Witch Blast, a fun dungeon crawler, and an inexpensive way to build a 64-bit ODROID touchscreen tablet using the VU7 kit from Ameridroid.
