    "I was looking for games on Android and ran across Block Story based on some recommendations. It is somewhat similar to Minecraft with its game play. However there are other features that are not seen in other games and it has been really fun to play and I am glad I found it. Overall if you have enjoyed Minecraft and you own an Android, then Block Story is a perfect match for you."

    "Minecraft was king around this house for well over a year, but Roblox has now taken over. It is indeed a bit like Minecraft, but there doesn't seem to be as much emphasis on building and exploring a world. My daughter plays all kinds of different games built within Roblox, which seems to be the real appeal at this point for her. She'd much rather be playing on PC, but the Android app works when she needs a quick fix."

    "This is an alright minecraft clone, but its missing a lot of the stuff minecraft offers, such as natural disasters, an ever expanding world, and of course all the modding support."

    "Terraria is somewhat similar to Minecraft, though it certainly differs in a number of key ways as well. It seems to be a little more structured, at least in certain modes, whereas Minecraft seems to be kind of more open-ended. The graphics are more retro, but are also sharper - I prefer this game's art style, for sure. Either way, it's worth picking up, as it's often on sale, regardless of how it compares to other titles that are more well-established as cultural points of reference."

    "I used to love playing "Minecraft" on my droid, but lately I have been getting bored with it. I tried to search for a fun game like it that I could play instead. A co-worker of mine recommended "The Blockheads" so I decided to give it a try. After playing for a few days, I was left unimpressed. I didn't really like the structures or the worlds offered in the game. Unfortunately, I guess I will have to continue my search for a different game."

    "Minecraft is the best sandbox game as its original. But as a free alternative you can play You Craft, the pixel world graphic and gameplay are similar to Minecraft, but the main difference is massive survival online mode with many features, where players unites in survivor clans to survive, create, build and have fun."
