Terraria is a two-dimensional sandbox that offers players an enormous world to explore and sculpt. This title has stiff competition, but it remains one of the most popular sandbox games due to the unique crafting system and seamless controls. Players are not limited by a storyline, and they can do practically anything imaginable including harvesting materials, battling unique creatures, and building a digital home for their avatar to live in.

When first entering the game, the avatar is dropped in a procedurally generated world with very little information. A single warning tells players that night is coming soon and the avatar must hide or find some form of defense. The learning curve can be difficult, but those who have played games such as Minecraft will have no problem adapting to Terraria. Some patches for this game now offer tutorials, but those only cover basic controls and mechanics. With a little patience, however, most players should be able to master the game's mechanics in under an hour.

After the avatar has survived the first night, they can then begin to traverse the world around them. Terraria is filled with random biomes that contain their own plants, animals, and building materials. Players can spend hours simply exploring the world, but the true depth of the game comes from the building mechanics. Every single block in Terraria can be broken down and harvested for base materials. Those materials can then be used to create thousands of different items ranging from tools and weapons to clothes and furniture.

Terraria is an enormous game with countless possibilities, and players will continue to find something new every time that they log in. The controls take just moments to master, but exploring the entire gameworld and unearthing all of its secrets might take years. Once players have gotten used to the game, they can then invite up to eight of their friends to share in on the adventures in their randomly generated world.
