While similar to Minecraft in many ways (you will be gathering resources and hiding in the night from zombies) there is still much more to this game than that. Your ultimate goal is to create a town for all of the available NPC characters, and then you must attempt to defeat the three main bosses which plague the world you have been thrown into. These bosses are no easy task to overcome, as each one has a different set of skills which will need to be utilized if you are to defeat them. You must gear up with iron, silver, gold, and molten armor and weapons to take out these bosses. Once defeated, you have in effect saved the world and can do whatever you please until the end of time. Easy enough, right?

For my opinions on Terraria, I would have to say that there are definitely up's & down's to the game itself, but it is a good solid amount of game play to entrance yourself with for a few weeks or so. It has charming graphics which can get old, and it has a soundtrack which is catchy, yet also annoying at the same time. The multiplayer features can be confusing to access but once you've figured it out, you can play with your friends and it can be quite entertaining. The re-playability value of the game was originally terrible, but once hard mode was added, it became much more interesting to keep on playing more and more.
