  • Explore.
  • Chop/Dig with the axe/pickaxe and collect wood/ore.  
  • Craft a workbench (get wood and click on it in the inventory screen to see the recipes at the bottom).  
  • Craft more things to craft other things out of by standing near the workbench.  
  • Craft better things (equipment and tools to explore further and collect more stuff for crafting).  
  • Beat Bosses (you'll come across how, or craft something that summons one).

I haven't played since the recent update where they added a bunch of bosses, but I could beat every one I encountered solo when I had my 77 hours with it last year.

The first two bosses I tottaly soloed, but that was back when you could use infinite pots.

Still, I don't like playing multiplayer that much. It's fun for a change every once in a while, but I like achiveing things solo.

hehe try this guy alone.

EDIT: well the wiki says its the easiest of the hard-mode bosses but it kicks my ass every time where as skeletron and the twins don't.
