Biggest dissapointment in pc indie games
Terraria is a brand new surprise attack of a game that appeared brand new a few weeks ago. It took the internet by surprise and showed everyone what they could do with the minecraft formula. But can this sneak attack of a video game live up to the high hopes of gamers up in this place? Lets find out.
Right off the bat there is something odd about this game. It just resembles to much of minecraft. The game clearly lifts everything right from notch's previous work. Ignoring that, the game starts off with you collecting shrooms (for later) and fighting this guy in a gray suit. But he is immune to weapons. So you have to dig a hole under him until he drowns. But then you can't get any of his loot, what a lame start. You can then go chop up some trees. But you use a wooded axe to chop it down? I don't think wood can chop down wood, but this game lets you do it anyway. Its confusing. The only enemies in the game are these blobs of boogers. They are very easy and boring to fight with. I dont understand why they are even in the game. You can build a house but its only a box, and the box is small. The building is very limited and not something to spend your time on.
The graphics are bad, Super Nintendo quality stuff. The music sounds like a broken Bubble Bobble record and when you get hit you sound like a turkey.
After that the only thing left to do is explore the stage. Unfortunately the level design is disappointing at best. The stage is nothing but rolling hills covered in random grass and trees. Sometimes there is a booger enemy or something, but there is no reason to be worried by them because they are so easy to fight. Sometimes there is water but you cant swim so it only slows you down, making it worthless. At the end there is finally a dungeon to go in, but when you get in there suddenly there is a new enemy that kills you in one hit! Then you have to go through the level AGAIN. What a waste!
Overall, this game isn't worth anything, not even the 10 dollars on steam. Don't bother. Here's the video review.
