Survivalcraft is a highly popular mobile game that offers a similar experience to Minecraft, it is often compared to the pocket edition and offers a cheaper alternative at nearly half the price while also having many features that the Minecraft: Pocket Edition does not have.


It is also one of the few games in the genre for the Windows Phone making it an attractive option for that platform although it is also very popular on iOS and Android. The game doesn’t offer up much of a backstory for your existence on this strange and blocky world (much like Minecraft) but as fans of the genre would know that this doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

In Survivalcraft you will spend your time exploring the large game world, mining resources, crafting tools to improve your chances of survival, creating traps and many other activities. Players will also have to battle hunger and carefully maintain their stamina while exploring which becomes even more vital away from your home base.

Of course you’ll need a shelter to survive in the game world and you can even ride your own pet horse to get around the game world. Horse not your style? The game also offers zebras, lions and even rhinos along with many other animals to create a vibrant and living game world. Survivalcraft also allows you to build your own electrical based devices (similar to redstone) so your options are truly endless in this world.


The biggest attraction to Survivalcraft is the large world which is far less limited than other games, making exploration of caves and islands much more enjoyable.

Currently this game scale is simply not matched in the mobile market. Once you are done exploring your game world you can share it with the Survivalcraft world sharing feature to share your experience with others.


  • One of the few options for Windows Phone (also available on iOS and Android).
  • Packed full of many Minecraft features (even surpassing the pocket edition).
  • Includes a redstone like feature (electricity).
  • Huge variety of animals that inhabit the game world to create a realistic feel.
  • Huge game world without limits.

    No offense but I don’t like this game because of all the useless items that they just added for no reason. Maybe this game would be better if they added alot more useful stuff rather than just adding them without a reason or just because they felt like it.

    This was a pretty fun game. Although the game has many different animals than Minecraft PE, it still isn’t as fun.

    This game is very fun. I think it is better than Minecraft PE because the Minecraft PE is not an inifinty blocky world. The Survivalcraft offer more better features than Minecratf PE.
