I bought this game for $1.49 during a flash sale way back during the steam winter sale in 2014. I bought the game as my friends said it was a good game and that I would have fun with it, and so I started up the game shortly after buying it. I spawned into my own world and was completely confused since I had no knowledge about the game beforehand. Shortly after spawning in, I fell into a lake and drowned. Being confused and frustrated, I just shut down the game and never touched it after that (except farming for trading cards.) 2 years pass by and I still haven't touched it since, even when the amazing 1.3 update hit.

2 weeks ago one of my friends decided to play terraria, and since I wanted to actually play the game he and some of our other friends started to play along as well. I now have 100+ hours logged into a game I started playing 2 weeks ago,and the thing is -- we aren't even close to Moon Lord (the final boss) yet.

Seriously. This game is a ♥♥♥♥ton of fun, ESPECIALLY with friends. There's a lot more than building and doing a vague survival "story" like there is in Minecraft. There are objectives to do, 4 different "classes" you can choose to play, and a ton of bosses to fight. Though, I don't really recommend the game singleplayer as most things my friends and I did took a lot of time even with about 3-5 people doing it (making farms, creating battle arenas for bosses, getting materials, etc.) But if you like playing games singleplayer, sure, go ahead!

100% worth the money. Even if you can't get the game at the ridiculous price of $1.49, I highly recommend this game.

Well, it was a good game until I lose a world and character approaching endgame events. Also, it sucks that there's no fix to corrupted characters and worlds when so many people have this problem. Anyway, I'm done with this until this is fixed. 1/10

A lot of people think that Minecraft is the only good survival-crafting game, but Terraria proves that wrong.

Terraria is a 2D platformer-style game that revolves around gathering materials, crafting armor and weapons, exploring, and fighting off hordes of evil monsters.

But, it's much more than just "survive and thrive". There are unique spells and enchancements that can be found to crush your enemies. NPCs may arrive at your house and sell items. New ores, new areas, new fun.

Also, there is a massive amount of bosses to fight, ranging from the frightening Eye of Cthulu, to the all-powerful Moon Lord.

There's a money system within the game that allows you to buy items from NPCs. Coins can be collected from monsters, bosses, chests, and more.

There's wide variety of things to do in Terraria, and trust me, you won't regret it.

What is Terraria? Terraria was a game that, often mistaken as a "Minecraft clone" and often seen as "2D Minecraft". Even after all that nonsense, Terraria was still a unique and a very young 2D adventure game that dragged many players into its world. After 1.2 update, Terraria became even larger, selling millions of copies, but then just after 1.2.1, it began to slowly die off. Fans were crying for it... Not until something wonderful happened. Terraria was released on consoles, slightly extending its life, and then, there were rumors about a big update for Terraria on PC. The 1.3 update was litteraly an explosion of new content, and yes, its true, +1000 items were added into game. This has to be one of the largest updates ever made for one game in gaming history. Free updates are still coming, adding more and more content, together with bug fixing and tweaking to make game more enjoyable and fun.

If isn't obvious by now, Terraria is much better than Minecraft in all aspects. Don't get me wrong, Minecraft and modding is a wonderful thing too, but Minecraft alone will be never as good as Terraria currently is. So, what does Terraira feature that makes it such a great game? Let's start from what you can do in Terraira:

From smacking slimes with your copper sword you start with, to annihilating the most powerful creatures of universe, you will learn (in a hard way) how dangerous the lands of Terraira really are. You are nowhere safe, not even inside your own home, as during certain events, swarms of enemies will break into your house, attempting to turn you and your fellow NPCs into a pile of mangled corpses. Hell, even bosses will come after you to punish your cowardness (if you haven't defeated them yet). Even if you own a good equipment to fend off enemies, your world is still in danger. There are biomes, seen as "evil", that will spread out and eventually corrupt your entire world. You are only one who can prevent this, so you better get a move on!

You will come across thousands of enemies, as well as thousands of weapons to use aganist them. There are so many weapons to choose from, that everytime you start from beggining, you will find different set of weapons and armor to use. This is what makes replayability in Terraria great. From weapons, you have: swords that are ten times larger than your character, swords that shoot swords, bow that makes arrows rain from sky, large variety of machineguns, launchers, pistols, laser weaponary, craziest magical items you'll ever see, lots and lots of ammo types, and much, much more... Once you got yourself a good gear, its time to challenge most powerful and badass bosses that you will have hard time defeating. Gain their loot, and progress deeper in world of Terraria, eventually unlocking the "Hardmode" in your world, where real adventure begins and where only real heroes (your characters) shall become champions of Terraria!

Hundreds and hundreds of blocks to choose from, Terraira offers greatest choice of decorations and blocks for all creative minds out there! Most of blocks have their own theme (e.g. Marble represents acient Greeks), as well as their own set of furniture, such as bathtubs, tables, bookshelfs, lamps, etc. Some require for you to own special crafting stations and tools in order to use them for building, meaning that you will need to explore and fight in order to earn those items. Once you got everything you need, its up to you what you want to build. A house made entirely out of bones? Slime? Glass? Honey? Or make it steampunk themed, alien themed, have golden toilets, garden full of large glowing mushrooms, color shitfting blocks, beds made out of flesh... I can go forever like this, the options, are truly endless! You can even shape blocks with hammers and/or color them, build traps with wiring system, wall tappets, decorations, paintings... Remember, you world... Is your canvas! You can get NPCs to live inside your marvelious creations, and they will sell you many things that you will find very useful.

Oh, and also, you can craft single colored blocks with gems you find underground. These blocks are made for pixel art!

A small world of Terraira contains everything you need, but just imagine what large worlds offers. All you have to do is explore them! You will find large variety of awesome loot, accesories and weapons for your character to use, statues to collect, and most importantly, ores used for crafting and crystal hearts that extend your maximum health. But beware, as I said, nowhere is safe. Underground is full of deadly traps and mobs that you are probably too weak to fight aganist, as well as other hazards such as water that you can easily drown in and lava that incrinates everything that touches.

If you have hard time exploring the underground, try fishing! With fishing, you a can get seriosuly good loot that can help you face the dangers of underground. All you need here is bait, good fishing rod, patience and with enough luck, you will be swinging fish-swords and shark-pickaxes at your foes!

Collecting virtual pixel sprites was never been so fun. Being able to own everything that exists in Terraria is satifaction at its best! If you like collecting stuff, you will probably relate to struggles of having filled up inventory with statues and paintings, hurrying back to your spawn so you can see what traveling merchant has for sale and defeating one boss over and over again, just to get that one item that you don't own, only to leave it inside a chest and never use it again. Or a throphy to decorate your walls with. Ah, lovely!

In order to customize your character in a way you really want, it needs a lot of effort. You will need to fight and explore a lot, as well as get NPCs to live with you so you can buy vanity items from them. Terraria also features "social slots". With these slots, you can wear both armor and vanity clothes without losing defense points that armor gives. In-case you find one armor likeable, but you don't want to wear it because you already own a better armor, just put it in social slot and you will look like you are wearing it, and your actual, better armor, will still provide you its perks and abilities. Social slots are made for cosmetic purposes. You can also use dyes to paint yourself and your vanity and armor in different colors, as well as using hair dyes for hair. There's an impressive amount of dye combinations that you can craft, as well as rare dyes that glow, have animations, reflect light and other kinds of wacky colors and effects.

Should you buy this game? Why, of course! Its worth every single copper coin. And has multiplayer too, which makes plenty hours of fun if you have a buddy/buddies to play with. It has holiday events during halloween and christmass, where you can get rad loot if you play during those special events.

I gurantee this game will bring you at least thousand hours of fun, as long as you prove yourself worthy and prevail over frustation and dangers that Terraria can offer. Well, will you?

Step 1. Go into caves.
Step 2. Kill stuff.
Step 3. Get better armor & weapons.
Step 4. Kill bigger stuff.
Step 5. Repeat step 3 and 4 indefinitely

On the serious note, Terraria is a phenomenal game & you should give it a try.

(UPDATE) Alright, alright, I fixed it, turds. Chill out.
(UPDATE AGAIN) Alright, fixed it. Thanks, rustystone.

"Terraria's just a dumb 2D Minecraft ripoff, what's so great about that?"
Hey, calm down. I'm not saying Terraria's better. But still...
I would like to say, that for the record...
This is NOT a 2D "Minecraft" ripoff.

Does Minecraft have a sword that fires rainbow cats?
Does Minecraft have other human NPCs?
Does Minecraft have yoyos?
Does Minecraft have flying eyeballs?
Does Minecraft have 14 boss battles?
Does Minecraft have cell phones?
Does Minecraft have pumpkin armor?
Does Minecraft have rainbow rods?
Does Minecraft have bees?
Does Minecraft have BIGGER bees?
Does Minecraft have lucky frog legs?
Does Minecraft have twenty-five (or so) different ores?

I didn't think so.

Probably best 2D sandbox ever made. The amount of items you can craft or get and enemies you can defeat (including bosses) is just sometimes overwhelming.

The game has 2 stages :

1) Pre-hardmode - basically a longer "tutorial" where you learn basics such as crafting, fighting monsters and exploring biomes, this stage ends when you kill certain boss in the underground called wall of flesh.

2) Hardmode - the real game begins here, monsters are stronger and new biomes appear, a lot of game content unlocks only in this mode. This stage remains forever (or you can count defeating the last boss as a end of it).

There are a lot of decorative items and furniture so builders won't be dissapointed though I was focused more on exploring and fighting rather than building.

Highly recommend this game but be careful - its addictive :)

This game is like a time machine, only that you can only go foward.

For example, start playing at 8 pm. Blink. Now its 4 am.

See? Magic.

I would rate this: my time played/10

Where can I begin. I first saw terraria when at a friends house. This was back before there was even hardmode in the game. I imideately fell in love. When I got home however, I soon forgot about terraria. Almost a full year passed and I one day I thought about it again. I decided to try to convince my parents to buy it for me. Terraria was on sale for 5 dollars at the time and was kind of a no brainer. BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE. Despite being on a potato system, I played the absolute ♥♥♥♥ out of this game. Fast foreward to 2016, I realized that I never wrote a review for this game

I rate 10,000 out of 10.
Seriously just buy it. If i was told I needed to rebuy terraria, but it now cost 150 dollars I would still get it.
This game is worth it.
For less then 20, its a ♥♥♥♥ing steal

There are 3 best indie games I have played

Garry's Mod, Dungeon Defenders 1 and Terraria

This game only requires about 100MB hdd space to download

But There are huge amounts of contents in it

If you have someone to play with, I strongly recommend you to try this game

Before you play Terraria, You should notice this things

1. It's not similar to Minecraft

2. Dont play alone, play with friends

3. Go to the Terraria wiki and just leaf through the pages

If you begin to play without this process, You wont be able to enjoy every content of Terraria

and you might be stuck at some point because you dont know what to do

4. Play female character, You could hear sexy moanings
