There is much to see, create, and discover in the world of Terraria, so the aim of this recurring piece is to focus on a small part of it and see what you all have come up with.
This week's theme is Evil Lairs: If you could design the biggest, baddest supervillain dwelling, what would it look like? What kinds of decor and rooms make a suitable headquarters for the evil among us?
Today we have a map feature by TerrariaOnline forum member Soopytwist called Pyramid Adventure. This feature is a little different though. Due to the fact that Soopytwist has released two maps within two weeks of each other, I'm going to feature both Pyramid Adventure I and Pyramid Adventure II. Both of these maps would be considered puzzle maps, although there is just enough story to call them adventures. As you'll see in the video below though, the puzzle aspect is numero uno.
Pyramid Adventure I and II are both great puzzle maps. They make you scratch your head and wonder how to solve most of the puzzles in them. One particular tough puzzle in Pyramid Adventure II is a lava trap puzzle in which you must use wood blocks to cover holes so lava can flow over them. The tricky part is that you need to flip a switch in the middle of all this to open a hole to fall in. Then you gotta get back to that switch quickly enough to close that hole so the lava can flow over it too. All while the lava is flowing right behind you. If you screw up one of those puzzles, it's pretty much game over and you need to copy over the original world file, start a new character and start over.
Fortunately there aren't too many areas you can screw up so badly you need to start over. I think...
Today we have another very talented artist who goes by the name Burnscars. Burnscars labels his art thread "Alone in Terraria". As you will find most of, if not all of his art is always someone alone fighting the baddies or just relaxing in the world of Terraria.
