( The Minecraft Switch Edition recently got a patch for 1080p resolution and other in-game improvements. The game is not new as it was released in 2009 and is hugely popular. Available on both mobile and console platforms, the game lets you build and explore the world which is procedurally generated. There are no limits in the game and as long as you can keep thinking of creating new things, the game allows you to do so.

If you are in search of the best Minecraft alternatives and Minecraft like games, here we’ve got several options you might just want to enjoy. The titles include some free and paid games, and most of them can be enjoyed on multiple platforms so that this list of Minecraft alternative games won’t disappoint you.

1. Terraria

You need to destroy many trees in order to make your way for building new shelters in Terraria.  When you play Minecraft, you need a place because it’s needed at night, and in this game also a home is needed. You will find different enemies attacking at night. There are many dangers but you will also get support from NPCs who will help you build a house.

2. Don’t Starve

Don’t Starve brings many similar enemies giving players different ways to die. In the game, you’re alone and you have to survive by utilizing your crafting skills.

Not running out of food and staying nourished throughout the journey while keeping away from the fire are biggest challenges you’re going to face.

LEGO Worlds is the game that combines all the crafting, breaking and building elements and delivers the Minecraft-like experience. The game allows players to build things in a procedurally generated environment while encountering challenges such as different creatures, and environments.
