The 2D survival sandbox with yo-yos
Terraria is the game you’ve been looking for if survival, sandbox, and progression systems are on your checklist. Creating your world and exploring it is a rewarding challenge.
Dig, build, and fight
Terraria gives you the sandbox survival aspects you’ve been searching for mixed into a progression system that challenges you.
Terraria is the most popular alternative to Minecraft. It features more content, a progression system and gives you an easy way to play locally-hosted games with friends. Similarly to Minecraft, Terraria has its own mod-loader with a variety of mods to enhance your gameplay or turn it into utter chaos. It’s full of vicious creatures that want to kill you, including the tough bosses you’ll face.
Every world you create is randomized. And the bigger you make the world, the tougher it’ll be to reach its ends and find the dungeon. Once you do, and you defeat Skeletor, the dungeon guardian, you’ll be ready to face the depths of Hell. But first, you have to dig there.
Unleash your inner architect as you design and build skyscrapers, taverns, castles, or a fortress of pure evil lined with traps and gizmos. In Terraria, if you can imagine it, you can create it. There are tons of materials to choose from and a large variety of decorations to place. Since Terraria doesn’t have a creative mode by default, you’ll have to use the mod-launcher to install a creative mode mod.
Where can you run this program?
Terraria is available for mac OSX 10.9.5 , Windows 7, Ubuntu 14.04 and all newer versions of these systems.
Is there a better alternative?
No, while Terraria does show many similarities to Minecraft and many dislike the 2D style, it offers more content and a distinct progression system that won’t leave you wondering what’s next.
This 2D side-scroller is a fun and engaging sandbox game that offers you singleplayer and multiplayer modes filled with battles, mining, and building.
