Sandbox platformer

Terraria is an action-adventure sandbox game where you set your own goals. You can search for treasure and raw materials, fight bosses, or construct your own city. It is all up to you. The result is a dynamic gaming experience for each player. Whether you play Terraria as a single-player, in an online player versus player or in co-op, your strength will rely on equipping yourself with stronger weapons, armor, and accessories. As you move from one world to another, you will need to continue crafting tools that you can use for that world. This makes for a never-ending journey in the world of Terraria. 


Terraria is a two-dimensional sandbox game with a three-dimensional pixel-like graphical style. It is a nod to the 16-bit sprites on classic Super NES games like Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, and The Legend of Zelda. The game begins in a procedurally generated world where you have a pickaxe, a sword, and an ax. These are your three most important tools as they enable you to protect yourself and gather resources. You must use these tools to create a workbench, a furnace, and an anvil. 

Once you have all six items, you can begin crafting your own several advanced items. They often require multiple crafting stations where the product of one recipe is then used as an ingredient for another. You can limit your goal to crafting items and building several homes and/or structures. The most challenging goal of Terraria is to fight enemies and their bosses. Terraria enemies appear as blobs, zombies, skeletons, demons, and other biome-dependent characteristics. 


They do not camp out in a specific place so having a sword, bow, gun, or magic spell in your inventory is necessary. This is especially important when you’re in a boss battle. It will be challenging but rewarding as you stand to receive rare items and large bags of in-game currency. By meeting certain goals, you can attract non-playable characters such as a nurse, merchant, or wizard. NPCs can reside in your lodging in exchange for you to purchase their items.
