Seeing creepers every time you close your eyes, Notch fanboy? Exploring (and destroying) the endless map of blocks in Minecraft is unquestionably addictive. Build, craft, and dig your way to pixellated glory.
To supplement your obsession with the official mobile app, give these 10 Minecraft-like Android games a whirl. Plenty use the instantly recognizable block motif; others have a different look but hit just the same creative sandbox buttons of joy.
For gun nuts: Guncrafter
Guncrafter is an oldie but a goodie. Instead of castles, use the blocks you win in head-to-head matches to construct your very own freeform weapon. Take out more blocks than your opponent to win mad coins.
Delver includes the building by blocks aspects of Minecraft, but instead of roaming the lands, you'll plunge deep into a randomly generated labyrinth wherein you lose everything if you die and respawn. Hardcore and addictive.
As though creepers weren't enough, Survivalcraft abandons you on a deserted island, where you'll have to satisfy your food, health, and shelter needs as well. If the difficulty proves frustrating, there's a sandbox mode to get creative free of obstacles. Loads to explore.
If you're looking for a 2D RPG Minecraft: Terraria
Terraria: the most well-known Minecraft alternative, and quite possibly the best. It's 2D rather than 3D, but the creative building mechanic is here, made more colorful by storyline bits and RPG elements.
