    "Gaming on the Linux platform has always been very hit or miss. In recent years Steam has added many good games for Linux. Terraria is a fun platformer that I have put dozens of hours in since I bought it. If you're looking for a solid adventure platformer, this could be the game for you."

    "I love tower defense games. FPS, not so much. But this is an interesting mix of the two styles, which I didn't expect to work. The classes let you have some customization for how you approach playing the game. It also gives you some replay options for when you want to go through it again and again. There's a bit too much story that they didn't really try very hard with, but the gameplay itself is fun and engaging. Overall, a solid TD game that is fun to play."

    "If you like this type of game, you will love this one. The game runs perfectly fine and is not hard to play. I had a blast by myself and with friends. A few minor bugs but they should be easy enough to iron out."
