FIVE DEAD & ALIVE Building Games Like Roblox (or Minecraft)

Roblox is one of the most popular games of its genre alongside Minecraft. However, other companies copied their gameplay, or even making them more fun than the original. Sadly, most of these games are not available anymore and all we have now is just a memory of them.

Below you will find a top games like roblox using the same building type of gameplay. I have lots of friends talking about and remembering them. Although Minecraft and Roblox are still the most popular, there are other similar games that used to rock back in the days. Below are top 5 dead games like roblox or minecraft.


1. Terraria

Is it almost impossible you never heard of this game before, maybe most of you already played it. This follows an RPG type of gameplay with action-adventure elements that has instantly become popular on PC and even on smartphones. Very simple concept, Terraria helps feed your curiosity and creativity in fast paced mode making it a truly fun and exciting game to play. Although a 2D style of gameplay it engages you in using your building skills to defeat a wide variety of enemies each with its own abilities and challenges.

2. Free Realms

This game was developed by Sony. It was releas back in 2009 and was closed down on March 31, 2014. It enabled you to take part in building activities in its 5 levels story. What was setting this one apart fro the rest of the more popular games was the option to choose any type of character to play with. And by any , I literally mean any type. If you want to be a policeman or an architect or anything in between this was the game for you. So sad this one has to come to an end. Rest In Peace!

Maybe one of the most creative driven games, Cubelands lets you build anything your imagination can perceive. It used 3D type of gameplay and can was played straight from your browser. You had more types of cubes to choose from to aid you construct the most complex structures. For a flash game, the graphics were remarkable making jealous a lot of windows based games. If you really wanted to stretch your creativity and imagination, Cubelands was definitely helpful. Sadly this one it isn’t around us anymore. R.I.P.

4. Garry’s Mod

Maybe the most appreciated alternative for Roblox, GMod follows the same sandbox type of physics. You don’t have a clear goal, hence the game is focused on the building process. You can build anything using the game’s resources starting from buildings, cars houses, etc. Using the Havok Physics Engine you can create very realistic devices based on real laws of physics. Similar to Roblox, in Garry’s Mod you can make use of props that other members of the game have built and shared with everybody.

5. Blockland

Using lego type of blocks, Blockland forces you to create structural buildings instead of letting your imagination wonder around with only cube like shape forms. Although this may not seem a very different approach it actually changes a lot the creative process of building. The game was released in 2007 and follows a rather non-competitive gameplay which enables player to follow a more peacefully experience in a friendly environment. The game is not related in any way with the big Lego company.

This were the favorite dead and alive top five games like roblox. Please share your thoughts in the comments section about these great games that are around us. And also please share your thoughts on why do you think Cubelands and Free Realms didn’t make it in the long run.
