Terraria (for those of you who don’t know) is a 2D side-scroller, do what ever you want builder game. In short it’s very similar to Minecraft and I’ve kept a close eye on this one ever since I heard it was making its way to PSVita.
The first thing I realized about Terraria was just how easy it is to control and how well it resembles its console counterparts. Even though the Vita is “missing some buttons” the developers have mapped a few buttons to the touch screen that make it easy – and quite a bit more streamlined. For instance; by pinching the screen (just like a phone) you can zoom in or out. By tapping the left or right side of the screen you will change weapons/items. As I explored around the world, digging and chopping down trees I felt right at home on this version. 505 games has a gem on their hands and I can’t wait to see this game finally come out on the Vita. With great graphics and easy controls this one should be on your radar.
Did I mention there’s multiplayer!?!? Unfortunately, I didn’t get to try that out yet.
