Top 5 Free-to-Play Games Like Minecraft for IOS

If you would love to play a game like Minecraft while you're on the go, be it on the train to work or even on a particularly boring road trip, we've got you covered. Here is a list of the best free Minecraft-like apps on iOS!

#1 Blocksworld

Blocksworld

Taking the first spot is a sandbox/adventure game that has a pretty unique, Lego-like appearance, Blocksworld! Blocksworld is developed by Linden Research, a sister company of Linden Labs the developers behind the hugely popular virtual world game, Second Life... and the developers defintiely know how to make a community-driven sandbox game works since Second Life is pretty famous for it.

In this game, you can make and sell custom models or your own mini-games, and trade them with other players worldwide to earn coins. You can then use these coins to purchase models that you want for your own creation, or best yet – you can even withdraw your virtual earnings for real cash!

You can also play worlds built by other players or build one of your own. Due to the game's graphical style and Roblox-like gameplay, the game looks child-friendly as well, making it a suitable family game.

#2 The Blockheads

The Blockheads

Have you always wanted to play a sandbox/survival game that's almost the same as Minecraft but has a whole lot more crafting? If that's the case, then you'll love The Blockheads!

Featuring an isometric 2D look, the Blockheads is a game where you can venture off into the world to explore and possibly discover hidden treasures. You can also collect blocks, craft and build almost everything you can see in the game through the game's many upgradable workbenches. The game even allows you to go fishing and open a shop so you can sell your wares. However, like Minecraft, there are danger lurking at every corner so you may need to be vigilant and get a weapon as soon as you can.

Interestingly, unlike Minecraft, you actually need to take care of your Blockhead. This means making sure he or she gets enough rest or they will perform the actions you ask of them at a much slower speed. There are also hunger and happiness levels so be sure you keep an eye on that.

#3 Block Craft 3D

Block Craft 3D

If you're looking for a game that's almost exactly like Minecraft with a heavier focus on the sandbox aspect, you'll love Block Craft 3D.

Being a sandbox game with unparalleled freedom to create just about anything you'd like in an unlimited open world, Block Craft 3D doesn't only allow you to build stuff on your own – you can even drop by your friends' places for a visit, to help them out with their creations... and maybe to steal some inspiration! You can also sell off the buildings you've constructed for gems.

Of course, you can customize and dressy our avatar to your liking, and according to the newest update, you can now adopt and play with animals as well! The game's very similar to the creative mode in Minecraft in many ways... with the exception of flying, that is. Flying is unfortunately locked behind a paywall, which can be unlocked for a small fee.

#4 Block Story

Block Story

Combining the popular sandbox/exploration genre with elements from an RPG, Block Story allows you to truly enjoy an adventure of a lifetime as you set off on your noble quest to save the world.

Complete a variety of quests, explore and discover wonderful new biomes, build strongholds to stake your claim on a piece of land, mine for materials to craft and/or upgrade your gear, and even battle challenging boss monsters for a chance at some glory and fame. You can also set up your own farm, as well as tame and ride on the backs of magnificent creatures, including a ferocious dragon.

Not to mention, unlike its Steam/PC version, Block Story is free for your mobile! Yes, there may be some waiting time involved, ads and even in-game purchases, but all of these are just some of the things the developers have to add in just so we could enjoy the game for free. Of course, if you decide that you love the game and would like to show your support, you could always buy the premium version.

#5 Growtopia

Growtopia

Looking for a more social Minecraft-like game? Well, do drop by Growtopia and join in all the fun! Simply pick a world you want to visit or even name a new world, and head on over so you can explore other people's creations or create your own.

Although it's a 2D sandbox game, Growtopia is a pretty unique game in the sense that instead of collecting blocks of stuff and crafting items out of these blocks, you collect "seeds". You have a chance of getting seeds by destroying blocks in any blocks in the game... and I do mean everything! These seeds can then be combined via a Splicing process (You just plant the first seed on the ground and add another seed to the planted one) to produce new items and potentially new seeds.

So, from the basic building blocks...ahem, I mean "seeds" of dirt, dirt background, and stone, you can combine to get items like signs, teleportation doors, and grass. The seeds for these items can in turn be used to produce even more variety of items! In some way, this app's crafting aspect is similar to an alchemy-type game. Due to the difficulty in discovering and crafting epic items, the game also has a pretty robust trading system whereby players trade gems (game currency) for items or seeds that they want.
