      While the vanilla game is pretty lackluster, with modding, the game can be just as engaging as Minecraft.

      Minetest is a mere engine and not a full game. Core devs do not consider making Minetest a fun to play game.

      It is a better clone than the others. It is kinda bad, but it has enough blocks to be kinda good. The shading looks meh

      Very similar but better moddability and code performance. Thus in some respects better than Minecraft.

      SurvivalCraft has a unique feature where you can download and upload adventure maps with ease without needing to pay or use an external application. in general, it's pretty fun to play. However, minecraft is a bit more fun!

      The graphics are better than minecraft, the paint feature gives more options when building. There's blocks that aren't just cubes, and the blueprint functionality makes it easy to build towns or cities using community made builds.

      Night is falling and your blockhead is freezing. You haven't yet made shelter and your campfire has gone out. All you have is a spade, some wood and a few sticks. You have only minutes before exhaustion hits. Do you create a bed, dig a cave or refuel your fire?
