Terraria drops to its cheapest price yet on Google Play



Terraria is one of my favorite independent games. Many people describe it as a 2D minecraft, and they might not be far off the mark. But don’t let that fool you into thinking this is a shameless ripoff devoid of quality, and said quality can now be had for just $2 on Google Play (down from the $5 it typically goes for).

Terraria has you taking a set of tools into a world that’s ripe for the picking, allowing you to mine deep into the earth for valuables and materials that will go toward building, well, pretty much whatever you want. The game doesn’t really have an “end goal,” so to speak, but you do encounter over 70 monsters and 5 different bosses to overcome as you work to achieve whatever it is you set your mind to (and there’s a lot to keep you busy with over 200 craftable items). You can also interact with 10 different NPCs and invite them to your home to help you out.

One of the best things about Terraria is that the world is different each time you start a new game, so there’s no telling what to expect whenever you are plopped down into the world. The Android version also includes multiplayer, Google Play Games support with Achievements, and you’ll be able to find a pet that’s exclusive to Android. We’re not sure how long this sale will last so if you’ve been looking for something a little different to play then consider foregoing that morning Starbucks fix to pay for it.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Considered it, then thought about how difficult it will be to play with touch screen controls…

    I’ll pass.

    1. That’s why I’ve held off for so long at $5, but I decided to try it for $2. It took a few minutes to get used to, but the controls seem well thought out and convenient to use. That said, I don’t know anything about Terraria, I’ve never played on PC, and I’ve only played for about 20 minutes. Seems good so far!

    2. Indeed.
      Fantastic game on PC, but I just don’t see touchscreen controls being conducive to challenging platforming and intricate block placement. I could definitely see it working on something like the Nvidia Shield though.

  2. How exactly does the multiplayer work in this game?
