My Terraria house - a ramshackle wooden hut with two chairs and a crafting table - is not exactly in a prime location.
Wander too far to the west and you'll come across an enormous, impassable golden temple, guarded by a crazed man. If you break in, and leap over a pair of acid-tipped arrow traps, you'll be immediately eviscerated by a giant floating skull.
To the east, there's a swamp made from corrupted mud. The area is patrolled by floating cylcops monsters called soul eaters, and littered with perilous drops.
And people wonder why I never leave the house.
I can dig it
Terraria's mix of creative crafting and endless exploration will keep you rapt for weeks. But a lack of multiplayer and some wonky touchscreen controls let the experience down
