I tried to play this for about an hour but I just couldn't figure it out (on mobile). It is like a joke to control this kind of game with a touchscreen, and that was a sufficient obstacle to figuring out how to build a house that I just gave up.
Maybe five years ago I played Terraria some on PC, maybe 10 hours? From memory I would rate it OK. Not sure why I expected it to be better on mobile. I guess I should try with a controller of some sort.
