Description

Grab your tools and go! You can do many things in Terraria: make weapons and fight off a variety of enemies in numerous biomes, dig deep underground to find accessories, money, and other useful things, gather wood, stone, ores, and other resources to create everything you need to make the world your own and defend it. Build a house, a fort, even a castle, and people will move in to live there and perhaps even sell you different wares to assist you on your journey. But beware, there are even more challenges awaiting you... Are you up to the task? Now available on iOS! Android and Windows Phone versions are to follow soon.

On August 29, 2013 we released the iOS version, with updates and Android and Windows Phone 8 versions to follow soon.

Selected Articles

  • "iPhone 5 performance is spectacular, controls are spot on, and I did the tutorial and it is amazing so far!"
    - darnoc703, TouchArcade forums
  • "My first impressions for Terraria running on iPad 3rd Gen. It's slick. Super slick. I am surprised at how well the touch controls translated! I like being able to pinch zoom to build with detail."
    - explosivelimes, TouchArcade forums
  • "The game plays pretty slick and looks amazing. Still getting used to the controls, but I prefer them over the original junk jack's. I've put a lot of hours on terraria on PC and easily recommend it over junk jack. The original lost my interest. If you are sitting on the fence, get terraria."
    - Rejera, TouchArcade forums
  • "I'm finding myself falling in love with Terraria all over again. Just digging deep into the underrealms, finding hidden chests with awesome loot, and getting plain lost is astoundingly fun."
