Terraria - Indie app of the day
What is Terraria
Terraria is a 2D platformer game that also has sandbox, multiplayer, and fighter elements in it. It’s already intensely popular and the multiplayer is cross-platform so you can face people on other platforms. It’s $4.99 in the Play Store and has no in app purchases.
Here is how the game works. It’s kind of a 2D side scroller mixed with Minecraft. You dig and craft items similar to Minecraft and you have to fight bad guys similar to Minecraft. However, there is also an adventure here with various enemies, boss fights, and a little bit of story. You’ll be crafting weapons, armor, and potions and there are over two dozen block types to mine for which gives you a lot options.
Along with the main game play you’ll also have various environments and times of day to play with which is a nice touch. There is an online multiplayer mode where you can go PvP and play with other people. There are also over 10 NPCs that you can recruit. It even has Google Play Games leaderboards and achievements. Despite its retro graphics, there is actually a lot of game here that you can play and the developers seem to be adding more stuff continuously. For instance, right now there are Oktoberfest-themed items that you can brew.
