Sandbox/Minecraft for 68k?

I am currently setting up a Powerbook 190 for my sister to use as a gaming and paper writing machine. (Their PC sucks.) She is a huge fan of Minecraft and I was wondering what types of sandbox games are available for 68k and the classic Mac OS in general. What would you recommend in this genre?

Maybe we should narrow this down, are we talking first person sandbox games, or construction games? Because I understand Minecraft has a lot of gameplay options.

I think she is looking for more first person, but in reality either is fine. I know it isn't a particularly large genre for this OS so I'd rather keep it wide open than narrow it too much. (She has already expressed some interest in the Cesar series (I & II) & Quest for Glory.)

Options are limited, and I doubt there is anything with a first person view, which is why Minecraft was so unique

The closest I can think of are strategy/Business sim games such as Yoot Tower or Sim City 2000. Perhaps also consider Settlers II, Civilisation II and Escape Velocity for its 'choose what you do' aspects

Edit - If it can run Avernum, that might be of interest

I like the RP elements of minecraft. Reminds me of things like Exile. Can the 190 run myst?.... i reckon so.
