You may also want to look at some subgames. Subgames form a foundation for the game using Lua scripts. Different subgames have different objectives, such as survival, building or Player vs Player. Usually Minetest comes with Minetest Game, to supply the default items and blocks. You can then add mods on top of a subgame in order to customize your experience further.
Works on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
- Minetest 0.4.16 (portable, 64-bit)

Android versions of Minetest are still in development and may have bugs.
Note: Please do not download unofficial Minetest builds from the Google Play app store. The builds found there may contain excessive adverts or spyware. They may be distributed under proprietary terms, without the source code, which makes them illegal to develop. They may be old or unsupported.
