A Hero's Castle

Today I finally finished building my big project on Terraria.  It is called A Hero's Castle.

It includes a village around the castle, with all the different NPCs.
Screenshots are as followed:

Welcome to another game review!

This time we are looking at the amazing 2D game, Terraria!

Now, alot of people compare this game to Minecraft, which I reviewed some time ago, and I'm not surprised at why they do.  This game is exactly like Minecraft but in 2D, and with a lot more things in it, and when I say alot, I mean ALOT.

Just like in Minecraft, you start a new world and a new character, but the system is slightly different.  On Terraria, you create a character to play as throughout ALL the worlds you make.  OS you can make several worlds, and one character, and you can go to all those different worlds, but keep your things.

Right, to the game! 
Terraria is a survival/adventure game with a kind of retro feel.  Unlike Minecraft, it has bosses, which your fight as your character gets stronger, but its not like an RPG.  On your first night, you must build a shelter from zombies, slimes, and other demons that come out to kill you.  Just like Minecraft, I hear you say!

I'm finally going to get to the pictures.

Thats all for today!

The Angel fish

Hello again everyone!

Today I began work on a new drawing in art and decided to sketch an Angel fish.  I have never seen one in real life but i think they are pretty amazing-looking, so I got to work.
I found a book that had instructions on how to draw one, luckily we have an art book of animals! Photobucket
Not the best drawing I have ever done, (that title still lies with Waddle the penguin) but I think its quite good myself.

Thats all for today.

Thanks for reading!

Hi people! You know what time it is - yep, game review time!

Minecraft is a basic survival game where you collect resourses to survive, stone, wood, etc. etc. Over time as you get more and more stuff, you can use them to craft other items such as pickaxes for mining, fences, doors, things llike that. Now I'm just going to give a quick first-night tutorial because at night monsters come out and try to kill you. So first when you first create a new world the game will dump you in the desert or a coastline or forest, and the first thing you want to worry about is time. Look at the sun. Then you need to find some wood, so find a tree and point your crosshair at the trunk, and hold down left mouse button. Your hand will lash out and punch the tree with a left hook, upper cut, jab, whatever. when it breaks a small block of wood will pop out. Pick it up by walking on it. It will go into your toolber at the bottom of the screen. Now you want about 10-12 blocks of trunk. When you have done that, press E on your keyboard to bring up your inventory. In the top right corner of the box is your crafting area. Put all of the tree trunk in a space and some wooden planks should appear in the result square. Take them all. Then put a wooden plank in all the crafting spaces to craft a workbench. That's really all you need to know, but I'll give you a crafting hint: making the shape of what you want to craft works. Then you need a shelter for the night, and some coal, but I'll leave that to you. Enjoy!
