      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.

      Unturned vs Minecraft
      pros, cons and recent comments
      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.
