Terraria for PC is a 2D exploration sand box game in which the player seeks to lay out the world according to their own choices – and their skills at combat, crafting and resource gathering too!

About the Game

Create a character and enter the world – beware nightfall and the arrival of the zombies, so your first task will almost always be building yourself some kind of shelter. It does get genuinely dark at night in the game, so make sure you remember to find, buy or create some kind of light source.

Much of your time will be spent underground – after you’ve found your way into the underworld through one of the sparse entry points in the game – mining for the iron/ lead and tin/ copper as well as the loot (the latter from the chests you will stumble across, randomly situated within the game) which can be crafted into more tools, better products and more sophisticated items with which to build even more advanced buildings, machines etc.

Building houses attracts NPCs (non-playing characters) who arrive and move in, often bringing skills like hairdressing, clothing and exotic items that you can then use in your crafting or to decorate. In time, you will craft yourself weapons and armour that will defeat the night-time zombies, and you will be able to go out and about in the dark as readily as in the daylight.

It’s Not Minecraft!

While the basic premise of the game shows the similarity to Minecraft – also a sandbox building and crafting game in which pretty much whatever the player wants goes – there are many ways that show the differences between the two.

3D vs 2D: Minecraft is a 3D game, with isometric views of the field of play possible. Terraria is 2D, side-scrolling action, which makes it simpler for you to move around and keep a good sense of where everything is.

Combat, Exploration vs Building, Crafting: Terraria places much more importance on exploring the whole map, to gather all the possible resources, and you will almost always stumble across villains at some point within ten minutes or so of playtime. In Minecraft, you can stay close to home if you wish, working on your building and crafting, and while there are enemies, these can be switched off for the easier levels, so they are not central to the game.

End vs No Real End: Minecraft has a very vague story arc, and it is possible to extend your play forever, working on a building until it is perfected, and then immediately starting another, and so on. Terraria on the other hand has levels like other video games, and the final moments of each level bring you up against a boss whose defeat is both challenging and satisfying

Classy Four Ways

The main four sub-classes are as follows:

  • Melee: Up close combat, you will need good armour to defend yourself and good weapons to make quick clean kills.

  • Ranged: Distant battles, using both bows and arrows or guns. Of course, any ranged weapon needs plenty of ammo which you acquire from pots and chests and also by crafting once you are able to find and gather the right materials needed.

  • Sorcery: Gather fallen stars to boost your mana bar, and then use magical items to channel the mana to defeat your enemies. Have fun with this power as you can channel your mana through various tools and materials.

  • Summon: Using small amounts of mana, summon creatures from special staffs which produce minion to fight for you. You can get slime monsters, imps, hornets and spiders and more all battling for you. Increase their power and your capacity by gathering and creating special accessories.

  • Terraria for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    10/10 Game, play it, if you don't I'll come to your house and steal your lightbulbs.

    • Very fun
    • Even more fun with friends
    • Even more fun with friends AND mods
    • lost all social life
    • Can't touch grass anymore
    • A shower? what's that?
    Awesome Game, really fun to play with your friends, the game is kinda long so you'll have a lot of hours in it. Also there are mods so theres more content to play with. And lets not forget about the seeds, some of them are callenging like getfixedboi. So i would recommend the game 100%.
    • good difficulty
    • lots of weapons and classes
    One of the best games I've ever played.

    Terraria completely immerses you in its magnificent world. Every second feels like playing the next, there are always things to do from the most trivial to the most complex. Whether played with friends or not the game is a lot of fun, if you are new it is very easy to understand and the more you progress the more difficult things become.

    The character can be modified in hundreds, perhaps thousands of different ways to make each player unique.

    Once you are familiar with it you can start playing in expert mode to have increasingly advanced loot and to defeat increasingly stronger bosses.

    Even at the end of the game you can always find things to do, and for the more experienced the addition of the master mode was a real godsend.

    The game continues to be updated and I'm very happy about it because it really deserves a lot, install it you won't regret it.
    • Lots of bosses to defeat
    • Full customizable character
    • Hard mode / Better drops for expert players
    • Need wiki / Turorials for new players

    I never liked 2D games and I have postponed playing this game for a LOOOOONG time. I always wanted to try something like Minecraft but with a little bit more adventuristic way and I had this game for some time but never dared to try it.

    One day, I had nothing to play and I decided to give Terraria a try. Guys... I have been a passionate gamer my whole life. When I tell you this. This is THE BEST game I have ever played in a while. Adventure, Bosses, tasks, NPC's, etc. This is everything Minecraft needs!

    I had like 1hr in this game before but then I went into the depth of the game and I realized how deluded I was with the look of this game and the actual game itself. This is literally the BEST game I have played in a while and I am dead serious. Try it you wont regret it. From 1hr to 180hrs in no time.

    Sadly they don't update it anymore but I hope in the future they will because It deserves to be continued. The end is a little bit dull because when you do everything, kill every boss, get every item, it's basically same as Minecraft. Only building left and nothing else to do or kill. So I hope they update it in the near future!
    • Peaceful
    • Adventure
    • Relaxing
    • Addictive
    • Better with friends
    • When you get into depth, hard to stop playing
    Absolutely phenomenal game, hundreds of hours of playtime, difficulties for all people and a unique experience that leaves you feeling godlike and powerful for every second you play.

    One of my all time favourites, a game done right, made with love, and overall deserving of the praise it receives. Modding community is huge, and provides even more hours of entertainment on top of the base game.

    GET THIS GAME, no questions asked.
    • You can run it on a microwave

    10/10 gave this game to my girl, worth it
    • Best game ITW
    • Can't sex the bear
    Terraria is one of my favourite games of all time, I played it for so long and never got bored of it, it has so much variety and things to do. Maybe the 2d perspective might not convince at all, but it's actally great. If you like survival sandbox, just buy it, you won't regret it.
    • Funny
    • Variety
    • 2D perspective might not be liked
    Great game! I play like 13 hours before doing my first boss because the game is rlly difficult to understand but trust me when you will understand how to play the game would be crazy now i have 100 hours i think and its a pure masterpiece

    Le jeux est un bon jeux de survie mais a la fin le jeux est Répétitif. Merci instant gaming pour le petit rabais.


    The game is a good survival game but in the end the game is repetitive. Thank you instant gaming for the small discount.
    • Bon jeux/Good game

    A really good game. It's easy to join friends and invite them, and the game makes sense most of the time. Even though it's one of my first times playing pixel games, I didn't mind at all. I really recommend this game to you if you are looking for games to play with friends.
    • Easy to join friends
    • Cheap price
    • Will keep you playing
    • It's a 2D game, which can be a downside for some people
    C'est un bon jeu wallah j'ai kiffé, le jeu possède beaucoup de variation, This game is just awesome, I mean the gameplay, the characters, classes, I've played it with my best friends and the feeling was just AWESOME! So much you can do in this game and so much fun, I reccomend it to those who like those kinda games :)

    • Multijoueur
    • Personnalisation poussée du skin
    Played the game in the Xbox360 and if it was good passed like a thousand hours when was a kid but it's going to take some time to enjoy it because at the start you will be killed by everything that it's not a slime or a zombie and guess what you can do coop and enslave friends to mine like animals, the game has SOO much content that in a thousand hours you will not have everything so if you never played this masterpiece buy it now and get an adventure that you will never forget!
    • everything
    • no bugs
    • a bit slow a the start
    Good game, didn't buy it on IG because i already bought it at steam where i didn't know about IG
    Its defenitly not a 2D minecraft or something like that, it has much more features like more bosses and weapons.
    i feel like alot of people call this game a bad minecraft but honestly in my opinion this game is ten times better then minecraft, there are loads more bosses, mobs items and weapons, you can interact with npcs and do much more. This game is just amazing.
    • amazing soundtracks
    • very fun with friends and on your own
    Its not like minecraft same style blocks but this is way differend the bosses are not easy at all so its a really challenge to fight against and there are differend style's of playing so that makes it fun
    • Much content bosses
    • If vanilla is done you can step up to modded
    • Makes you wanna play more
    Wow, right of the bat I saved over 29% just from this site! I can buy many more games for the same price I'd had. This is Perfect. Speaking of the game now, I enjoy this game. Even it's cheap! Hope you guys do the same :-)
    • Cheap Game
    • Fun with friends
    • little slower gameplay
    • none
    Fantastic game! You like minecraft or any other kind of blocks game? Then this is an absolute must have! Especially with the newest, and sadly last, update it got even more content which is only waiting for you!
    Amazing and really fun game with so much to explore.Preferably to play with friends because its boring alone. Also if you are lost like me you could use the help of a friend in this game. Minecraft could never be this good.
    good game, has alot of content. but is pretty small and annoying sometimes. support alot of mods wich can make your time alot better and smoother for alot of things. has good multiplayer and world costomizability

    Fun game with catchy sound track.
    Nice price for the replayability that the game is offering.
    Easy to setup a multiplayer world.

    The only downside (for some), it doesn't have a great tutorial, only one NPC that gives you random advices.
    • Replayability
    • Relaxing
    • Doesn't containt a good tutorial so you may check the wiki
    Good game , 100 h in ... Needs more different types of worlds , fun for a while . Gets bored after you get everything.

    This is one of my favourite games. Have a tale graphic, with badass bosses, and have lovely NPC-s.
    This game the best for relaxing or one of the best skill games.And it's only have 1 problem: too fast.
