TER­RARIA

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gaming -

XBLA, $19.80 ★★★ The player is a silent hero in an un­charted world who must dig for ma­te­ri­als in or­der to craft weapons and items. It sounds like Minecraft and that’s be­cause Ter­raria is es­sen­tially a 2D take on the mas­sively pop­u­lar min­ing game phe­nom­e­non. What sets it apart is its heav­ier fo­cus on ac­tion but, while the big-boss fights in­voke mem­o­ries of old-school ar­cade games, the clumsy craft­ing sys­tem kills the mood.
