    "Terarria is indeed a 2D platform style game that uses low system resources, but despite that, has a charming story and beautiful graphics. There are some customization options for replay value, but ultimately it's a fun game to pass a few hours of your time."

    "I never get tired of this game. New levels appear at random. And even older levels are worth exploring deeper. It's just a really good game for my laptop which isn't the newest one on the block. And it's free! And free is always good. "
