Minecraft has been around for ages and is one of the most popular games ever made.

A multi-player building game, Blockland was released in 2007. The game feels like a Lego game, although the designers adamantly deny any connection. Considering how Lego is jealous of their copyrights, their reaction is quite understandable. Players can use various resources available in the game to create houses and entire cities. It is a great game to develop children’s imagination and creativity.
Blockyard gained a cult-like following since its release, mainly thanks to almost limitless possibilities it offers to the players. You can design and create almost anything, including various machines and transporters. There are plenty of materials and motors to help you with your creation. All you need is your imagination and you are good to go.
