Minecraft is an open world game where players let their imaginations run wild creating whatever they dream up using blocks. It's sounds simple, but that simple formula has garnered millions of fans and millions of downloads.
Recently Minecraft came out with a mobile edition, but with a price-tag of $6.99 many are passing it up. Robert Workman of Modojo is here with a list of 5 Minecraft duplicates that will have you ambitiously building and fighting like a champ!
1). Terraria ($4.99)
Terraria has its similarities to Minecraft, but works from a 2D side-scrolling perspective, resembling one of the classic 8/16-bit games of old. It's definitely complex enough, though, as you build, dig and fight your way through a fantastic world, picking up new weapon types and uncovering new places to expand your exotic world. You can also bring buddies along for good measure with the local four-player multiplayer support, where you can either work together, or fight it out for bragging rights.
2). Block Story ($2.99)
If Minecraft took place in the medieval era, it'd probably be a lot like Block Story, Mind Blocks' fascinating clone allows you to work with ten separate ecosystems within a huge, exploration-worthy world, summoning various creatures to join you in combat against tough enemies. Along the way, you'll be able to strengthen up and gain new abilities, which will come in handy for tougher foes later on in the game. This is one Story worth checking out.
3). The Blockheads (free)
If you prefer a free-to-play approach to the Minecraft formula, Majic Jungle's The Blockheads is a superb alternative. In this game, you'll dig your way through a randomly generated world, while crafting new tools that will come in handy over the course of your quest. You'll also be able to build new weaponry, as well as a boat to help get you over troubled waters. The secondary fees vary from $.99 to $9.99 (with crystals up for grabs, along with an optional HD texture pack), but it's still a considerable value.
