Survivalcraft is a sandbox game developed by just one man, Igor Kalicinski and published by Candy Rufus Games, that has managed to reach the top sales list for Android and iOS. It is impossible to omit that it is very similar to the well-known Minecraft, developed by Mojang, and its mobile version, Minecraft - Pocket Edition. Lots of Minecraft fans may consider its existence an affront, but let's give a chance to this clone.
You must survive the first night and build a resistant shelter to avoid being eaten by the creatures on the island
One of the main differences between both games is that Survivalcraft offers a bit more background story. This time, your crew on an isolated island abandons you and the last news you have about them is their boat fading away into the distance. Now, you must survive the first night and build a resistant shelter to avoid being eaten by the creatures on the island. Apart from this point, the game is quite similar to Minecraft.
Another difference is that the scope is much wider in Survivalcraft than in Minecraft. The world looks more extensive; moreover, it looks endless. An annoying thing about Minecraft PE was that fact of encountering the invisible wall that delimits the map. This does not happen in Survivalcraft; here you can play in an unlimited world with caves, mountains, deserts, beaches, and so on.
The most important thing is to survive
One important factor for Survivalcraft is that there are no monsters. Instead of them, you will find many types of animals. Some of them are harmless, and will serve as food such as cows, others can harm you but can be useful (horses, ostriches), and with others it's better to run as fast as you can and flee from their sight (rhinos, bears).
The key to making a good start in this sandbox is to survive the first night. My advice is: try to get some wood to make planks for building a small house. Once you have your little threat-proof shelter, create a place to sleep and rest. Resting is quite important since your stamina depletes if you do not sleep and your vision starts to blur and get dark. The following step is making wood tools to be able to hunt. Fish and birds are a good first aim at this point. If you manage to do this without being defeated, congratulations! You will survive the first night!
Nevertheless, not everything is done; you have to survive as long as you can, so I will tell you some other tips. Once you wake up, I recommend you to get easy food, that is, pumpkin. They are lying everywhere so you will find no troubles to get them (unless a wild animal eats you first). Then, be sure you create a crafting table to create a stone sword, this way you will be able to defend yourself. You can also create a boat to fish and explore other areas. Once you have all these, just explore, collect more materials and survive.
