Gameplay[change | change source]

It is a wide-open sandbox style game; players may edit the terrain and go anywhere they want to.

There are a wide variety of materials (Called blocks or tiles) that players can use, such as Dirt Blocks, Stone Blocks, Copper Ore, Wood, and many more. Players need the right tools to mine any block.

The game begins with the player creating a custom character, and then is placed in a computer-generated world. The players begins with only a few Copper tools, which are used to gather wood, mine blocks, and attack monsters. From these basic Copper tools, the player moves up to stronger armor and weapons. There are bosses in Terraria that the player must defeat. Terraria is much like Minecraft, but it is only two dimensional and includes many more items and bosses.
