GAMEPLAY AND GRAPHICS

Whether one likes savagely serial killing multiple Eyes of Cthulu, or building huge houses and structures and torture their NPCs, the beginning is like every other sandbox survival game, the player chops down wood and fantasizes about their journey and future plans! The player can choose weapons, armour and accesories from their favourite classes, namely melee, ranged, summoning and magic, you may prefer bees being birthed by your grenades to assist u killing monsters,or have a controllable magic projectile, or literally a kamehameha!

Sometimes it can be a turnoff for some people as the graphics are only 2D, but the possibilities are endless, the huge content and different materials just cancels out this con in my eyes. The game offers the player to fight multiple bosses, events and armies. Unlike a lot of sandbox games, Terraria doesn't completely focus on mining, some of the strongest weapons, ores and armor are even dropped by bosses. There are also over 20 different NPCs the player can interact with, each of these NPCs sell different items and have different functions. Like mine-craft there is really no 'endgame' to Terraria, a player can beat the Moonlord which is considered to be the final boss of Terraria 1.3.5.3, but then again, what really can be considered an end to a game like this?
