Minecraft vs Terraria Differences
- Oct 07, 2021
Minecraft and Terraria are two different games created by Swedish game developers. Minecraft is a sandbox building game set in a procedurally generated world. Terraria is an action-adventure game set in a procedurally generated world that also has strong sandbox features, such as mining blocks and using them to build things. The following are five differences between the two games.
1. Minecraft is 3D, Terraria is 2D
In Minecraft, the player is able to view the world as a 3D model. Terraria, on the other hand, is 2D and does not use a 3D model.
2. The world of Minecraft is procedurally generated, Terraria’s world is set
In Minecraft, the player is able to create and explore a procedurally generated world. Terraria, on the other hand, generates its world beforehand and it has limits to how far can you go in each direction.
3. In Minecraft, the player can build structures and structures can be viewed from all angles
In Minecraft, the player can build structures such as buildings and bridges. These structures can be viewed from all angles and the player is able to view them from a first-person perspective. In Terraria, the player is able to build structures such as buildings, but these structures cannot be viewed from all angles and the player is only able to view them from a third-person perspective.
4. Terraria has more weapons and mobs
Terraria has way more options of weaponry you can use and mobs you can fight. For instance, in Terraria, the player can use weapons such as swords, bows, guns, grenade launchers and magic wands. In contrast, in Minecraft, the player can only use swords, axes, bows and crossbows.
5. Terraria progression is split into two parts
Terraria has way more bosses in general and after you beat the Wall Of Flesh, new biomes, mobs and ores are going to generate. This results in much more diverse and action-packed gameplay.
They are their own things
Minecraft and Terraria are somewhat similar, but sure, they are different games with each of them having accent on different things. For example, Minecraft is more focused on creativity, while Terraria is more focused on action.
