At this stage, there's not much more we can explain about Minecraft. This adventure and construction sandbox game with pixels and characters that definitely remind us of the world of LEGO, has surpassed its initial expectations. In fact, it has been such a frenzy that Microsoft purchased its property and operating rights from Mojang for a price in the region of millions of dollars.
For Android, iPhone, Xbox, PC... building with blocks is the real rage.
Any drawbacks? Well, it's not free, and that's a problem for many users. What were its developers thinking about? Asking for money to create a game and maintain the servers for the online multiplayer mode? Inconceivable!
A free alternative to Minecraft
If you're one of those users that's not at all happy to pay to play a game, you can always resort to the download of one of the free Minecraft alternatives, without in-app purchases or any other similar surprise. There's Crafting: Exploration Survival, for instance, that's a very well-crafted game without reaching the level of its source of inspiration.
It's also a sandbox game in which we'll have to explore a vast world, using all sorts of tools and construction elements to create it and customize it to our own liking: houses, farms, animals, fields of crops... And it also offers us a multiplayer mode.
How's that possible? I can't download Minecraft for free but I don't have to pay for this version. Well, don't get too excited: it's a fun and worthy tribute, but it's nowhere near the original. So craft as much as you want, but don't go mad if it has a few flaws.
