I’ve always been intrigued by the world of Minecraft but have been reluctant to part with my hard-earned money to buy a copy. When I looked around to see if there were some free alternatives, I was surprised to see there are quite a few to choose from.
My favorite of the bunch is Minetest. You can play offline using various world version modes or you can easily join one of the online worlds and do some building of your own there. I’m still new to the game myself but there are plenty of friendly people online willing to help me get acquainted with the rules of the game. It seems like I learn more and more about the game each time I play.
There’s also an Android version of Minetest so you can take your mining ventures on the go.
