So I’m going to be straight honest here. This is the best game I’ve ever played in my life. It is so fun and there are so much things you can do in it. But my one and only problem which is a huge problem, because I see a lot of other reviews talk about this, is the controls. The first thing is that when I put my left thumb over the (idk what it’s called, but it’s what helps you walk and move) thing, sometimes I accidentally use a potion instead. It is very annoying, especially for new people because they won’t have many potions and they could accidentally use one, which is bad. My final and main problem, which is the reason I rote this review, is the flying and attacking. It’s impossible to fly and shoot at the same time. I am having this problem so many times, especially in boss battles. It is so annoying. One strategy I developed which kind of helps is that I curl my right hand in a U shape around the corner of my iPad where the fly button and attack button is, and I use my index finger to fly and my thumb to shoot. As you can imagine this makes shooting very inaccurate, as I am more of a defensive and shooting person. I also tried using the movement button to fly, because I thought you only had to swipe up twice for one time and then you let go then you only had to swipe up once but I was wrong. Each time you want to fly with the movement button, you have to swipe up twice each time you fly, even after you let go. I know you have thousands of reviews each day, and I doubt you will see this, but if you do, please take these thoughts in consideration. Maybe you can swipe up twice to start flying on the movement button, and then when you let go when you are in the air you can swipe up once only. After all, this is my favorite game, so it’s ok if you don’t change it. But I see a lot of youtubers being able to fly and shoot at the same time, so I thought mobile should feel that same experience too. Have a good day and stay safe!
I always loved this game. It was a childhood game that I always had and NEVER got bored of. The old controls were easy and I could handle it as if I was a expert. But when the NEW controls came out, not only was I confused, I couldn’t even place down blocks and build because it was that weird. It was as if something just pops up and hit you smack-dab in the face. If you were trying to make the game a bit (or a lot) more difficult, then I get it. Adding new controls will make it difficult for the player. But if it’s just a update so it looked better, plz consider how all the other players will have problems adapting to the new controls. ESPECIALLY if the time goes by faster and mobs are surrounding them.
There should be a option to switch back and forth through the new and the old controls. Even after at least 4-5 YEARS of playing this game back then when we had the old controls, was I still enjoying it. But the new controls made me play less and less to the point I don’t even know if playing normally is a option anymore
Plz change the controls back if you can. But if not, at least make the option to change through the old and the new controls so other players can play normally again (like me since I still can’t understand the controls after at least 5-7 months). Again, plz consider how other players feel when they can’t play normally and have to adapt to a whole new game play after playing Terraria for a LONG TIME. I would like to play normally again and not have to hurt/stretch my fingers across the screen just to play♀️.
I REALLY want to give five stars cuz I love this game, but the controls makes it a four star (sorry)
I love this game, but the new controls for the 1.3 update make the game unplayable! Why not bring back the stick design that has worked for years? The extra buttons make the game’s controls unwieldy, and many of the buttons were unnecessary. The grappling hook could always either be in your menu or be a swipe away. It did NOT need a button. The potion buttons, while a convenient idea, clutter up the entire control scheme. The lock on and smart cursor buttons could easily be put in the settings, and the jump button is out of the way and annoyingly concealed behind the right stick. I actually didn’t mind pushing up on the left stick to jump, maybe add it as an option in the settings? The sticks are just small enough to miss 50% of the time, but too large to be considered small. The one good design decision, in my opinion, is the menu. The idea of multiple menus isn’t foreign, and I enjoy how it doesn’t conceal the entire screen and pause the experience, so I can play, without pausing just to craft something or trade with the NPCs. The menu button is well placed and perfectly sized. However, that is not enough to save what used to be an amazing game. Without these awful controls, this game would be a definite 5 stars! Unfortunately, I’m afraid I won’t be able to play this game comfortably with the new, bad controls. Thought I was the only one with this issue, glad to see that I’m not alone.
The game is AMAZING on console and I love the game, this mobile version is great when it comes to how up to date it is however most “popular games” have controller compatibility as an option but this game does not, and I believe this is a game that NEEDS controller compatibility! It shouldn’t be too hard to add and I would like if it would be in the game, the controls make it hard for me to maneuver and be efficient, I would be better with more control! I know I’m going on a rant here but it’s true. Minecraft has this feature already and so does Call of Duty! I love those games and I REALLY LOVE THIS GAME but it’s hard to play without a controller in my hands, and I really badly want to play this mobile version and experience it but with ease. Please 505 games respond if you aren’t going to add this feature or if you are, I would like to know, also when it comes to the items and biomes on mobile, keep it up:)
Sincerely, your favorite Terrarian!
Honestly, I was so angry that all of my preparation for mods was a waste, then 1.3 came out. I soon knew my preparation wasn’t a waste because mobile can play with pc( if pc had the right version ). Thanks for doing this devs, my only issue with this update is the crappy controls, please go back to the old joystick functions. You don’t need a jump button, why would you add it? The inventory management just became much easier, but I don’t like that you have half the cursor range. I’m very happy I can chuck my useless items into an NPCS inventory, it makes management much easier. My only issue is how hard the controls are, I still slip a lot even after 4 hours of gameplay since the update. Another issue though is that my brother’s world got cut at the top, so we cannot access anything up there, including our truffle worms which are a pain to find, if you, the devs could fix this it would be highly appreciated.
The HUD I think I rushed it calling it a packed MC Donald’s but I’m gonna be honest with you that’s what it looks like I can even walk without pressing a mother button and I died twice on the first night trying to figure out the controls I was a big fan of the game I played since like it came out and whatever this is it needs to stop and back the two joy sticks a phone or a I pad is not the size of a I MAC or PC it’s something needed to be refocused it is a mobile game not a pc game I redownloaded this game looked at the HUD and immediately realized this is gonna blow up and seen shrapnel towards everyone who played the two joystick way there is way to much on the screen Minecraft you have about 8 spaces on your hot bar and the two joysticks don’t listen to pc players it’s retarded it being impossible to even play it’s not a pc game and it never was ditch it and direct it back to the old system.
I love this game. Terraria is just you’re gold when it comes to sandbox games, rivaling only Minecraft in my opinion. The only problem I have right now is the recent update. It’s a great update, and I like how much it adds to the mobile version. So what’s my problem with it then? Well, the controls. It’s cool that you changed it from the simple few buttons and joystick it used to be, but it’s way too complex for me to learn or get used to. A lot of my friends share this opinion, and I think a lot of people who play this game share that same opinion. Despite the great work you’ve done with the new controls, me and lots of people just NEED the old ones in order to play this game! So please, PLEASE, at least add an option to go back to the old controls. I’ve searched for one in-game, but couldn’t find one. Anyway thanks for the amazing game, and please add the old controls back in.
Alright good and bad lets start with the goods I like how its fun the controls are useable not impossible I wish there where better controls but you guys are the creators not me. The play of the game is smooth and all in general its fun. Now the bad stuff I guess really there is are the controls and at the same time not really because I can deal with it I personally don’t care at a point that I need it but I would like to see better controls. Now quick question will the journeys end update be added to mobile and did you guys add moonlord sorry for the one dumb question but this my first time playing on mobile so idk much about it because I played on console. All in all I give this game a five star rating its fun I recommend it and have a good day and thank you for making such a great game .
Ok do t get me wrong I love this game but in the old one you had a tiny shine around your character making it easier to explore at night but now it is removed and going out at night or going in the jungle caves is very challenging due to time not k owing how I am getting hit when I drop all my money and realize I got killed be a slime don’t get me wrong this game is amazing but please just add the shine around your characters outline back!! Finally for some reason I can’t open the map because of the size of my iPad please fix that but other than that the game is amazing! One more thing can you make it so umbrellas and magic mirrors AND guns are more easier to find?
I played this game 1 or 2 years ago and I was impressed how well the game ran and how fluent the controls were but since the control update I find the controls unbearable because there is way to much on the screen at one time and overall is needlessly complicated there are a few editions I like such as the jump button and the buttons to drink mana and health potions but everything else just adds clutter also a couple of the things that were automatic before are Manuel now such as closing a door and I don’t really like that but other than the controls the game is great just hard to experience with the clutter on the screen
