Craftsman: Building Craft is a free world-building game with close similarities to Minecaft and other games in the same genre including the two-dimensional Terraria, with the distinction that it is available completely free to play.
Equipped with blocks of dirt, stone, wood and other materials, you can construct buildings to suit your tastes. Using an array of tools from pickaxes to hammers, you can procure more materials to make more blocks. You are not alone in this world: from harmless cows to terrifying Zombie Pigmen, you can expect to run into other denizens of the blocky landscape. If you desire a fight, you can even create your own enemies.
Simple and addictive
Like its clear inspiration Minecraft, Craftsman: Building Craft is straightforward to learn but also addictive. Players are granted a wide array of customisation options, from coming up with a custom skin for their character to building an entire city using various different materials. For players who prefer a bit more action, it features a survival mode that pits you against monsters who lay siege to your newly constructed building.
Customise your game
The game includes a range of options to choose from. You can alter the difficulty level, toggle the camera viewing style, broadcast to LAN, customise the controls (including touch sensitivity) and tweak the graphics to ensure that the game runs as smoothly as possible on your device. The most significant option of all is the choice to play the game either alone or with friends through a multiplayer mode.
A worthy alternative to Minecraft
Players who already have Minecraft will find little to enjoy in this close imitation, which is more of the same but with fewer features. For those who desire a free alternative to the better-known title, however, Craftsman: Building Craft will be a good choice. The game offers all of the key elements that made Minecraft a success in the first place. Gamers who enjoy sandbox play will find plenty to keep them occupied.
