Terraria and Minecraft are often compared to each other as they play out very similarly. This title was developed by Re-Logic in 2011 for the PC but has since released to several platforms such as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Much like Minecraft, Terraria is an endless title where players explore, collect resources and battle enemies within a randomly generated world.
While collecting resources and defeating enemies, players can build structures which can eventually be filled with NPCs where in return these characters can offer gamers items or services to purchase. One key difference Terraria has from Minecraft is that the game is featured in a side-scrolling 2D world. Regardless, Terraria has been picked up over ten million times and it’s available for practically every current platform.
