    "I have been looking for another game like Minecraft for quite awhile. I was instantly drawn into the sandbox style of Starbound. I like the game play because it is mission based. I can forage and create but I also have goals to meet."

    "I picked up The Forest because i was bored and it looked interesting. To my surprise it reminds me a lot of minecraft in survival, creating and building items. I would say it's a survival game that is very under the radar and a gem in a mine. I would suggest this to anyone of my friends."

    "I liked this as an alternative to Minecraft. It required a good amount of imagination and I enjoyed the ability to play with other players. I do wish there was more building involved like in Minecraft, as I enjoy that part of Minecraft."

    "If you're looking for a game similar to Minecraft - you've got it. Winter Craft 3 is virtually the same thing, with an updates sandbox and a "create and build" style with new resources, armor, items, and player modes. It's a simple game and mobile friendly - just what you're looking for."

    "This is somewhat similar to Minecraft. I think they look like the same thing but with different characters and the layouts are a little different. I like Minecraft and I like this game as well. The differences aren't that big so i enjoy playing myself.."

    "Although both games are simulation driven, The Sims focuses on building and creation, where as Minecraft focuses on survival. Both games are a lot of fun and require thought and skill to play well."

    "I love Minecraft but I needed a bit of change, but wanted something that was similar to Minecraft too, because I like that type of game. Delver is a great choice! I get surprised level ups and never playing the same thing over and over, it's really fun and interesting game if you are a Minecraft addict that needs to have a new (similar) game!"

    "It's like minecraft, with guns! This genre is getting crowded by a lot of me-too games and this is one of them. The concept is interesting, but I'm not sure I really want to play yet another pixel crafting game, you know? It was fun for a little while but it didn't hold my interest at all."

    "Garry's Mod is the perfect game for those looking to build and live in their own world. I enjoyed playing it because it gives the player the freedom to do pretty much anything they want. I liked the graphics and even considered it to be a bit better than Minecraft."

    "My son loves Minecraft, so I was looking for more games like it for him to try. I discovered Pixel Gun 3D in the google play store and gave it a shot. He loved it - the graphics, the gameplay, everything."

    "Survivalcraft2 was the answer to my prayers! After I had played hours and hours and hours of Minecraft, I wanted something similar but still different enough to give me a new challenge. Survivalcraft2 was perfect, and it has given me many more hours of unique playtime!"

    "Minecraft started to become a little dull to me so I started looking for an alternative game to play. I stumbled on WorldCraft and fell in love! It is so much fun! I definitely recommend WorldCraft to gamers of all ages."

    "Kerbal Space Program is great for people who love building or finding solutions to problems through creative thinking. The visual effects are similar to the Minecraft world but you are given clear goals to achieve which makes the game more enjoyable to me."

    "Growtopia is just another Minecraft wannabe, cashing in on the basic structure and visual depth of the similar games that came before. After a week of having the game installed on my Android, I uninstalled it and moved on with my life, as should everyone else. Leave this one on the shelf and walk away."

    "Survival of the fittest! If you like Minecraft, chances are that you will love Rust. Start off in the stone age and survive however you can, it's a game at it's addictive best!"

    "Even though this game is very "Minecraft" like, it has its own personality. I like the puzzle solving worlds that makes you think hard to get them complete. I would love to see more features on the game, but I guess eventually they will be added on future updates."

    "I wanted to play Minecraft but I didn't have money to buy it. I tried out a free version of pretty much the same thing, called Minetest. This was really fun and really great, especially for free!"

    "If you're looking for a game that reminds you of Minecraft, then this less than a year old offering looks very promising. Not a ton of Steam reviews, but they're very positive and there's enough to pass that bar for me. It's not cheap like lots of phone Apps, but not a bad price for what looks like lots of diverse kinds of action, meaning that if you're not excited about one part, then there will be plenty of others that are likely to keep you interested. Count me in."
