First Appearance

Update 0.9.0

Packed Ice was a Block added in Update 0.9.0 for Minecraft Pocket Edition. It bears a resemblance to normal Ice and has similar qualities, but only spawns in the Ice Spikes Biome.


Packed Ice is similar to normal Ice, as it has the ability to make Players and Mobs 'slide' on it and is translucent. Packed Ice cannot melt. It can only be obtained by breaking it using a Tool Enchanted with Silk Touch, other tools will break the block into Water. It also allows for mobs to spawn, unlike Ice.


  • After Update 0.12.1, Packed Ice got a new texture.
  • Packed Ice was not present in the Creative mode Inventory till Update 0.12.1.
  • Packed Ice makes the same sound as Glass when broken.
  • Version Exclusive: Contrary to PC version where the block vanishes when broken with non-enchanted tools, it breaks into Water.
  • If a half block, like Slabs, are placed above the Packed Ice, it inherits the same slippery character as the ice.
