An amazing side-scroller game with many elements, some people think that Terraria is a rip off of Minecraft, saying there are less features, dimensions, lower graphics, etc. when actually most of these are false. Terraria might not have different dimensions, but they have certain events like the pirates, slime rain, lunar events, martians, etc. Terraria also has a lot more features, have you seen the items? You could be a summoner, warrior, mage, or archer or neither, and make their own class with different accessories, equipment, weapons, and armor. It also has more bosses that are more fun and actually require skill, not seeing how fast you can spam left-click with your diamond sword with sharpness II on a creature made from sand and decapitated Satan skeletons. It has the Moon Lord, Skeletron, Duke Fishron, Brain of Cthulhu, The Destroyer, Skeletron Prime, The Twins, and a lot more with more to come! This game may not be 3D with low graphics, but it beats Minecraft by a long shot.

Terraria is a 2d adventure game with RPG elements made by Re-Logic in 2011 for PC, console, mobile and 3Ds.
Terraria is thought to be a rip-off of Minecraft because of the ability to mine and hack enemies with swords. Terraria has four classes including Melee, ranged, mage and summoner.

Terraria worlds are created into pre-hardmore, and after defeating a boss called "wall of flesh", a mode called hardmode is activated. Terraria has several unique biomes, including Forest, Snow, Desert, Corruption, Crimson, Jungle, Ocean and the Hallow, and several others.

Underground are several different ores of different tiers, including copper, tin, iron, lead, gold, platinum, silver, tungsten, cobalt, mythril, palladium, titanium and more. Terraria has unique events including Goblin Invasion, Blood Moon, Solar eclipse, Slime Rain and many more. Terraria also includes 15 main bosses and several other minibosses.

Quite possibly the best indie game of 2011, Terraria is a very addicting platformer with many Hack 'n Slash and RPG elements.

It bears many similarities to Minecraft, but offers so much more in terms of content. Terraria has meteorites, goblin invasions, bosses and character progression, among other things.
Finn: Dude, I haven't seen you on the Minecraft server for a few weeks now, what's up?

Jake: Yeah sorry, I've been playing this epic game called Terraria. It's kinda like 2D Minecraft, but with content. We should totally play together sometime.

Finn: Sounds interesting, I might pick it up when I see it for sale on Steam.

Terraria is a 2D side-scrolling game developed and published by Re-Logic for multiple platforms. Most people believe it is a rip-off of the popular sandbox game Minecraft, but neither has ripped off the other really. This misconception is carried around much too often.
Contrary to popular belief, Terraria has mods just like Minecraft, people seem to not do their research into that. Also, it has many more elements than Minecraft. More potions and a story progression is more of what makes this game stand out from Minecraft.
Even though there is no creative mode or other dimensions (like Minecraft's Nether) in Terraria, there are classes you can play as; melee, ranged, magic, and summoner. And the bosses require you to employ actual strategy instead of spamming your bow and arrows over and over again. (Speaking of which, Terraria has, along with more than one bow, guns as well.)
Though most people take a side of either Terraria or Minecraft (and I may sound like the Terraria side, ngl) but the truth is, neither is 'better' than the other. They are both sandbox games created with pixels and a development team. And while Minecraft may gain slightly more attention than Terraria, both are amazing games regardless of the audience range and size.
Me: I'm gonna play Terraria.
Annoying Eavesdropper: Ew, Terraria! Play Minecraft, where there's actually mods.
Me: You might want to do some internet research into the mods thing. And I also play Minecraft, thank you very much. Both these games are successful. Not that I can guarantee you'll be, anyway.

Awesome game that's kind of like a 2D-Minecraft but isn't.
Play it, play Minecraft, and you will never see daylight again.

Terraria is a 2d side-scrolling game with features similar to minecraft. Terraria includes randomly generated worlds, as well as Bosses . Unlike minecraft, Terraria takes more of a Fantasy tale turn by allowing potions, forms of magic, powerful swords, and abilities. The game is a "build-it-yourself" story line allowing you to make whatever you like from a broad range of craftable items.

The game includes stunning graphics, multiplayer, pvp settings as well as teams on servers.

Terraria was inspired by minecraft, and is not a copy.

If you need a cheaper substitute to minecraft, Terraria is your second option!
