If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding pie recipe you've come to the right place.

Ingredients:
1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2. 1/2 cup white sugar
3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
4. 1/4 cup water
5. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
6. 1 pinch salt
7. 5 apples - peeled, cored and sliced
8. 1 pastry for double-crust pie

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2. Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and set aside.
3. Roll out half the pastry to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate; pour in apple slices.
4. Roll out top crust into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 8 (1-inch) wide strips with a sharp paring knife or pastry wheel. Weave the pastry strips, one at a time, into a lattice pattern. Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the edge of the bottom crust and crimp to seal.
5. Pour butter-sugar mixture over top of pie, coating the lattice, and allowing any remaining sauce to drizzle through the crust.
6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until the crust is golden brown, the caramel on the top crust is set, and the apple filling is bubbling, 35 to 40 more minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

I highly recommend Terraria for anybody who enjoys games with virtually limitless posibilities, such as fallout, minecraft or starcraft. With tons of items, bosses and places to find you will always be anticipating what comes next. Me and my friends have put many numerous hours into this game and have enjoyed exploring together and busting on eachother in PvP, so in my opinion Terraria has a little bit to offer for everyone.

Terraria is a really great game, and its a shame that people who have never played is dismiss it as a 2D Minecraft.

Pros:

-The game is deep, with tons of items, enemies,bosses biomes and other things. It is also replayable due to the many different character builds you can do, the inclusion of a harder Expert Mode, and the randomness of every world-from the enemies you'll meet to what the moon looks like. Bosses are fun and can be quite challenging, and random events such as blood moons and solar eclipses keep you on your toes at all times. And when you want to relax, you can settle down and do something like building, fishing or mining.

-Terraria also supports Multiplayer, and is extremely easy to run. Seriously, you have to have something really bad to really lag on this game. The music, is for the most part excellent and diverse, and suits the area and the situation you're in; my only little nitpick with this is that the boss battle music looping isn't the best, but it's a minor issue. The graphics are nice considering it is a 2D game, and shouldn't be a cause to put you off this game. It even comes at a really low pricetag.

-The game has a few references to other things, which I personally always like.


Cons:

-The first few hours of the game are admittely quite similar to Minecraft and can be rather dull, however the game begins to get fun very quickly. And when defeating a certain boss, your world enter Hardmode (seperate from Expert Mode), which is amazing in nearly every single way, but carries a harsh difficulty spike that might put some people off. However, it doesn't take too long to get yourself prepared for the increased difficulty due to all of the new items that are accessed via Hardmode. World generation can occasionally troll you, but most of the time it's quite minor.

-Sometimes the NPC'S decide its a good idea to open a door when there are thousands of monsters aetrying to knock it down.

Tl;dr: Terraria is a great game that grabs MInecraft by the scruff of the neck, throws it into a dumpster and gives it the finger.

Well I enjoyed it alot. About 4 years ago.
It was easy then.
Build.
Jam to the awesome chiptune soundtrack.
Mine.
Fight the Wall of Flesh.
Beat all the bosses.
Grab the Excalibur.
Done.

They rammed in so many weapons that my inventory is constantly filled, and oh dear lord all of the particle effects. It litterally gets you to a point in the game where everything you own is overpowered, one shotting poor little rabbits and basic monsters, and nothing a a challenge anymore. The litterally decided to use Chrismas Tree and mulitple freaking Yo-Yos as weapons in the game.New order.

Build.
Mine.
Jam to still epic chiptune music.
Beat the Wall of Flesh.
Grab the Excalibur.
Just kidding, apparently that was the fake one.
Now use your fake Excalibur to craft the TRUE excalibur.
Grab the Night's Edge.
Oh wait sorry then the True Night's Edge.
Then use the TRUE Excalibur and the TRUE Night's Edge.
To Craft lo and behold, the Terrablade.
Defeat the Moon Lord.
Wallow in self pity on the false sense of accomplishment.
Done.

The game takes almost no skilll, just a lot of time. A lot of time wasted.

Bad game. No content.
700+hrs/10 would spend years playing again.

SRS TIEM:
2D Platformer with a STRONG emphasis on crafting and character progression. Almost infinite replayability, amazing COOP, challenging bosses, beautiful soundtrack, recently updated/currently supported, loads of achievements...
I honestly couldn't recommend this game more.
Better than Minecraft. Paved the way for Starbound. Referenced in many other titles.

BUY THE DAMNED GAME ALREADY!

Before you read, Terraria is NOT a copy of Minecraft.

In my opinion, Minecraft is a fun and really good game for building, but I stopped playing it of boredom a couple months after getting it. I did not play it every day. Now, Terraria is good for Building, Exploring, Fighting, Destroying, and is rewarding. Minecraft is very unforgiving; When you die you lose all your stuff and you usually can't get it back in time. In Terraria you can choose to only drop your money (It's easy to get it back.), you can choose to lose some of your items, or you can make your character die forever so you need to make a new one. I have been playing Terraria for +150 hours and I am still not bored of it the slightest bit. Also, if you still think it is a "Stupid Rip-off of Minecraft" I am fine with that, BUT notice Terraria has 14 bosses... in PC. Minecraft has 2. Terraria has +70 Swords And +50 Armor sets while Minecraft has less than 10 of both of those. I hope this review helped you chose wether to buy this game or not, And thank you for reading this far!

So, in my opinion,
Minecraft is the superior for building and has almost endless worlds horizontally.
Terraria is the superior for Fighting, Exploring, And looting. It is also very addictive and it is hard to pull yourself away from it.

Honestly, I get on Terraria for multiple hours a day and I get on it every day.

Also, The bosses are hard, especially during Expert or Hardmode, and they give you a sense of achievment when you beat them.

The main thing you should know about this game is soundtrack 12/10, its so amazing, even when you will be full of this game you still will play it because of soundtrack :D. By the way, don't be too mean and buy it(about 3-4$)
Music is beautiful and changes depending on which biome/area we are in. Yeah! it has lots of music :)

Lets go to the point body :

It is a wide-open sandbox style game; we can edit the terrain and go anywhere we want to.

The game starts in a randomly computer generated world. We start with three basic tools: a pickaxe for mining, a shortsword for combat, and an axe for woodcutting. Many resources, notably ores, can be found while mining or exploring underground caves. The player starts off with 100 health, which can eventually be increased up to 500 by finding special items (life hearts and fruit ones)underground. Some resources and most items may only be found in certain areas of the map, stored in common and rare containers, or dropped by certain enemies. The player uses resources to craft new items and equipment at an appropriate crafting station for that recipe. For example, tables or other items can be crafted at a work bench and bars can be smelted from ore at a furnace. Several advanced items in Terraria require multiple crafting operations where the product of one recipe is used as the ingredient for another.

You can encounter many different enemies in Terraria such as simple slimes, zombies, demon eyes, and various region-specific enemies. The occurrence of certain enemies depends on several factors including time, location, random events, and player interactions. We can fight against enemies with swords, bows, guns, magic spells, and other weapons. Each map will have several zones with unique items and unusual enemies.

To sum everything up: gameplay and musical design is so great. You will be an idiot if u had some money to spend and and didn't buy it.

50/10 worth playing.
