Run, don’t walk, to the iTunes store and download Terraria.
(Well, okay… you can’t technically run to the iTunes store. Because it’s online. And that would be ridiculous. But you get the idea.)
Anyway, Terraria is a wonderful retro-style 2D ‘Metroidvania’ game that incorporates a lot of RPG and Minecraft-like elements, including digging, building and crafting all kinds of crazy weapons. It’s got a killer chiptunes soundtrack, too.
But it’s oh-so-much-more.
This game gets constant play on the Xbox at our house, and my son has been waiting for the iOS version for months.
Download it here. You won’t regret it!
