Hey Beasts, it's alexbeast12 again! Sorry I couldn't get this out earlier, had some business to do. Anyways, let's get started!

Let's start this review with the NEW DECORATION HEADS! What these are are a block that is just the head of the mobs! So far, only zombie, skeleton, steve, wither, and creeper heads have been added. These heads can also be placed on top of your head. Very inception like with a steve head on your head. On to the next feature!

Next, we have a WITHER-SKELETON HYBRID! This monster of a mob has the texture of a wither, but has the body of a skeleton. They can only spawn naturally in nether fortresses. Instead of holding a bow, it holds a stone sword! These are also slightly taller than the player! Next!

I think this next is pretty cool! You can now CONTROLL PIGS WITH A CARROT ON A STICK! The recipe for the carrot on a stick is a carrot on top of a fishing rod, like you would for flint and steel. What you do is mount the pig as usual with a saddle, hold the carrot on a stick in your hand, and it will follow the carrot! On a side not, the pigs will not jump, and the only way to stop the pig is by holding something other than the carrot on a stick in your hand. Let's head on over to the next feature!

The next feature is the SECRET FEATURE NOW BEING SPAWNABLE! Incase you've lived in a box the past few weeks, the secret feature is the Wither boss! The new boss has 3 heads, has ribs like a skeleton, and the two heads on it's side shoots mini heads at you! Again, here we go to the next feature!

The WIP(WORK IN PROGRESS) BLOCK WAS RENAMED THE BEACON, and is in the creative inventory again. The Beacon now has a crafting recipe, which will also be in a screenshot above. The Beacon also has the same funcion as before. All aboard the next feature train!

Now, THERE IS NEW PAINTING! The painting shows you how to spawn the Wither! I think it's a cool picture. Well, all of the pictures are cool! All aboard the next feature, erm... the... the next feature airplane!

Lastly, there were MINOR BUG FIXES! Not sure what the fixes were, but at least we fixed bugs!

Well guys, that was fun! As a side note, the 1.4 update has been dubbed as the "Pretty Scary Update"! So, expect some more scary features in the upcoming snapshots! Until next time, it's Alex!

P.S A new item added is called the NETHER STAR. You can obtain it by killing the Wither.

There is a recipe for the Carrot on a Stick, actually.

Put a carrot and a fishing rod in your crafting table/inventory crafting.

The fishing rod is diagonal to the carrot, like how iron is to flint when making flint'and'steel.
