With deceptively deep physics and elemental systems at its core, The Sandbox lives up to its name - and then some.

One of the recent darlings of the indie game world, Terraria's free-roaming 2D platformer-cum-construction game can be very exacting as you bid to survive its harsh world through wits and ingenuity alone. It's all the more rewarding for it, mind.
