Multiplayer Minecraft Alternatives

    Minecraft is described as 'sandbox game that revolves around using building blocks to create anything you want. At night, monsters come out; make sure to build a shelter before that happens. The game also has multiplayer capabilities'. There are more than 50 games similar to Minecraft for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Android, Linux and Steam. The best alternative is Minetest, which is both free and Open Source. Other Minecraft like games are SurvivalCraft (Freemium), Creativerse (Freemium), LEGO Worlds (Paid) and Terasology (Free, Open Source).

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

      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.

      Some users think Unturned is a great alternative to Minecraft, some don't.
      s20 Unturned is a cheap-looking kinda crap Zombie survival game. It's not even close to Minecraft, and I don't understand why anyone would think it was.

      It s a first person shooter. The only thing it shares with Minecraft is that there are zombies and some trees.
