Gamespot got a showcase of Terraria mobile shown by David Welch of Re-Logic Games. The video shows off how the mobile version is setup and a few changes they made to make it feel better on mobile.

Fairly certain this is a day one purchase for me because Terraria is one of my most beloved games of the last few years and I would enjoy just a "fairly decent" version on mobile. From the video it looks like this might be a fun game to play on your phone but we will see how well it translates.

I'm definitely getting this when it launches. It may just go into the group of apps that are basically random timewasters, since when I really want to play I'll play on PC, but I'd love to be able to mess with build ideas on the go.

Has anyone played the mobile version of Terraria? I noticed that there seems to be a demo of it in the Google Play store, but I can't access Google Play on my Kindle Fire HDX without rooting it, which I did to my original Kindle Fire, but hesitate to do it on the HDX. I'm interesting in seeing what someone else who's played the mobile version of Terraria has to say about it.

It's kinda clunky. The controls are serviceable but not great. The best you can do with a touchscreen I'm sure, though.

Yeah, it's ok. Nice to have it on a non Windows platform. Like Travis said the controls are odd but they don't have the 1.2 update. Hopefully someday.

Not only that, they don't even have hardmode. You can fight the Wall of Flesh and then you're basically done.
