Minecraft is building an empire - brick by brick.

The "pocket edition" of the game which grips youngsters for hours on end as they create their own world - adapted from the computer version - is the most popular paid-for app on iPhones and iPads, according to a best of the year round-up by iTunes.

The most downloaded free app for both devices was the game Candy Crush Saga which features an array of puzzles involving sweets.
