Players move freely and completely independently in Terraria. The game world itself is usually even randomly generated. The tasks that players have to fulfill are even considered optional. The main task now is to search for metal ores, find them and eventually mine them. Additionally, there are many other treasures to discover. Both are meant to upgrade one's armor and make oneself stronger and better.The improved armor is thus urgently needed to advance in the game world. Because in the various areas, which are known there as Biome, new boss opponents are waiting for the players, who must now take up the fight against evil. Once the last boss has been fought and defeated, the game is simply continued individually and at will.
In Terraria, each day lasts exactly 24 minutes, which are divided into a fixed day-after cycle. It can be observed that during the day the enemies are somewhat weaker and therefore less dangerous. At night, however, aggressive and stronger enemies are waiting to attack players. In addition, there are many more enemies attacking at night than during the day.Besides the typical bosses, there are also some rare bosses as well as events. These can drop special items, provided they are defeated. These so-called drops can significantly improve the combat ability of the players.
In the online world of Terraria, all block graphics can be mined or rebuilt. In the process, different items can even be used to achieve improvements. In addition to the bosses or enemies, NPCs can also be found in the world.These are peaceful traders. For this, however, a certain requirement must always be met and a special accommodation must be made.
The game's graphics are 2D and quite simple. It is mainly based on the earlier 16-bit console games. Nevertheless, bright colors and nice effects were used here as well, so the game will be enthusiastically played by gamers of different ages. By the way, the game is recommended for ages 12 and up. Players can play Terraria both alone and in co-op mode via LAN or Internet. Not only can you travel around and explore the new world. There is also the option to play player against player and thus compete with other players.
