A little about the gameplay
Terraria is a uniquely creative game with its gameplay revolving around building, exploration, crafting, building, mining, and combat. It takes place in a wide 2D side-scrolling environment. The game is mainly popular for its classic exploration-adventure style gameplay. It can be said that it has a lot of similarity with games such as Minecraft and Metroid. Terraria makes use of procedural generation to create a unique world in every new game.
Build, explore and fight monsters
Terraria is all about crafting, exploration, combat, and building. Other than that it also include creatures that are procedurally created in the 2D world. The game received positive criticism at the time of its release and was also directly compared with Minecraft due to its sandbox and building features.
Three essential tools
The game takes place in a procedurally generated world, where the player starts out with only three tools including a sword, pickaxe, and an axe. Each of these tools is used for a different purpose: swords for fighting enemies, pickaxes for digging and axes for cutting trees. While playing the game, you will face many different enemies such as blobs, zombies, flying eyes, etc. you need to fight against these creatures using the tools you have. There are also specific goals in the game which you need to complete. With each passing level, the game progressively gets more difficult (and to be frank, more interesting).
