First off, Terraria is nothing like Minecraft. Sure, you can destroy and collect blocks, fashion them into a house and then hide there during the night to escape the nocturnal creatures that roam the lands. And you can create items by combining other items. And dig, and dig, and dig… Okay, Terraria is a little like Minecraft. Terraria is the side-scrolling cousin of the first-person world-building dig-fest and puts a new 2-D spin on the crafting/adventure game.
