Terraria begin with a like less pleasing version of Minecraft, mashed into a 2D plat former. It ends as a terrific exploration game, filled with places to discover. Floating islands, festering corrupted lands and large multi-level dungeons guarded by boss monsters, are just a few things that you will encounter once you've crafted yourself a pair of pants strong enough to survive this world.
In this game, building and crafting are easy once you know how, but the only help you will get upon jumping into your procedurally generated world is a few obscure hints from a guide NPC. Tapping on any block in the world will crush it and place it in your inventory, where mined materials can be mixed to create increasingly crazy items that you can use, or use them to enhance your hand-built home.
In order to find the materials and pieces to make these things, you're going to have to go traveling, which is where the game shines. Apparently, you can change your world into a server and invite as many friends as you can as long as your connection can handle them.
If you are fun with going online to craft recipes, then Terraria offers lots and lots of hours of rewarding journeys. The absence of in-game tutorial and the slow start are its major disadvantages, however, at only £6, Terraria is a hit for those players with the patience to reach its deepest holes.
