Like Minecraft, Terraria is a game that has developed and improved over the years as its developers have released updates. This means that playing on a new device will grant you access to the latest version of the game. A new Terraria Journey's End version of the game offers new items, foes, creatures and even a little Golf mini-game. It also adds new difficulty modes, enhanced weather effects.
It's essentially, an action-adventure open world game with a focus on exploration, crafting, building, and combat. You start with just three basic tools: a pickaxe for digging, a sword for combat, and an axe for woodcutting. Many resources, notably ores, can be found while exploring caves. You must use the resources you find to craft new items and equipment.
