Terraria mixes concepts such as crafting, adventure, exploration and RPG aspects
This title has some obvious similarities with the world-famous Minecraft, as crafting and building are lifted directly from it. However, Terraria Mobile has some unique features that set it apart such as 2D graphics, a combat system that reminds us of the good old Ghouls N’ Ghosts with weapons that grant different stats. It also brings an elaborate exploration aspect that encourages players to keep uncovering secrets. Terraria Mobile offers randomly-generated worlds filled with dangers and natural resources.
Explore and Survive
One of the most fun things you can do in Terraria is to create your own unassailable fortress. You are free to start chopping down trees for wood and then turn the wood into walls to start creating your shelter. Of course this is only the beginning; you can upgrade your humble wooden shelter with the right materials and turn it into a gigantic castle or the USS Enterprise if that's what you desire. Note that your buildings can house NPC’s (Non Playable Characters).
Exploration is the other major thing to do when playing Terraria Mobile. You can go straight forward to see what’s generated next or go under the surface and start digging tunnels to unearth the secrets hidden in the depths of the earth. There are chests scattered around the map that contain valuable materials and even magical items. Enemies also drop rare materials upon their defeat. You can use materials found during your exploration to create better equipment for your character.
You need to be well equipped to survive in the world of Terraria. Your character is able to carry weapons, armors and accessories. Weapons have different attack speeds and damages; armors block enemy damage depending on their defense value, and accessories are useful items that serve different purposes. For instance, there are different wings with which you can fly and fall down slowly, defying fall damage, a Moon Trinket that turns the character into a werewolf at night or a bottled cloud that allows you to double jump in the air.

Terraria is a 2D retro style building videogame that allows the player to manipulate all elements within the world in any way he wants. This Minecraft-like game may look like another clone, but Terraria has its own style and personality, setting it apart from other similar titles.
Besides the strong building mechanics, Terraria has a RPG side which makes it challenging, since you will have to enhance your equipment and weapons in order to take down the many bosses the game offers. By doing this, you will progress and gain access to finer materials to create buildings, new items or powerful weapons such as blades, long ranged guns or magic staffs.
The game can be played solo, but the cool thing about Terraria is that you can team up with friends and create your own server to build a giant city or summon the most dangerous bosses and beat them down together. The game has a built-in server tool which allows you to get it online and ready easily. Nevertheless, you will have to use a third party program such as Hamachi to get an IP and join a server.
- Almost unlimited bulding and crafting possibilities
- RPG aspects such as the weapons and armor make it challenging
- You need thrid party programs to join a server
