Much like Minecraft, Terraria is an endless title where players explore, collect resources, and battle enemies within a randomly generated world. Players can also build structures which can eventually be filled with NPCs  that will offer gamers services or items for purchase. If you enjoy Minecraft and don’t mind resorting to a 2D style gameplay, Terraria has been an excellent video game alternative.
