There's a lot to do here.

On a personal level, can I recommend this game? Yes. Having played the original PC version since its release back in 2011 (it's difficult to believe it has been three years already), Terraria is an exciting adventure game, mixed with some RPG elements, action and even some teamplay and simulation through building (think, Minecraft). For $4.99 on Windows Phone, it's a steal even if it is a solid mobile port.
As an added bonus, 505 Games have made it so Terraria will run on 512MB RAM sporting hardware!
Also, grab it on Steam when next on a PC. It's a superb game if you're into these kinds of genres. Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
