Week in Arcade: Terraria – Xbox 360 Edition


A single effort this week, an indie PC gem that’s running $15.

Terraria – Xbox 360 Edition

Fun adventure that fits the mold of a 2D Minecraft with its own unique quirks. Budding builders will find the inventory management works well with a controller even if the functions are shuffled across the controller. Charming pixel art and music keep the attention of players, and simple combat makes the game a bit of a challenge. This is a clean adaptation in a time when these building adventures are hotter than ever, although the bulk of the Xbox Live Indie section has a ton of these as well. Check out Terraria, but don’t forget the others.
