List[edit | edit source]

  • You can't destroy a demon altar with a normal hammer. You have to pwn them.
  • Life Crystals are hidden around the World. Use them to increase your health.
  • Build a furnace to craft metal bars out of ore.
  • A room in a house can have wood platforms as a floor or ceiling, but NPCs need at least one solid block to stand on.
  • The Cloud in a Bottle and Shiny Red Balloon accessories both improve your ability jump. Combine them to make a Cloud in a Balloon.
  • If you store your coins in a house, you'll be less likely to lose them.
  • The Goblin Tinkerer found in underground caverns will sell you many useful items, including a Tinkerer's Workshop.

  • You can plant acorns to grow new trees.

  • The best wizard people use Mana Flowers.
  • You can buy wires from a Mechanic and use them to create traps, pumping systems, or other elaborate devices.

  • Hold onto an explosive to attract a Demolitionist to your house.

  • You can change your spawn point by placing and using a bed.
  • You can remove furniture or background walls by crafting a hammer.

  • Some ores require better pickaxes to mine.
  • Collect money to attract a Merchant to your house.
  • The Corruption is full of chasms. Mind the gaps.
  • To craft potions, place a bottle on a table to make an alchemy station. Double, double, toil and trouble!
  • Make sure you have empty, valid rooms to attract new inhabitants.
  • Wear a Mining Helmet if you don't want to use torches.
  • If your house doesn't have background walls, monsters will be able to spawn inside.

  • When dealing with a Goblin Army, crowd control is key.
  • Monsters spawn more often in dark areas.

  • Seeds can be used to farm a variety of useful ingredients, especially for crafting potions.

  • Mobile Version Touch and drag items from the Inventory Bar to drop them into the world.
  • Mobile Version Pinch the screen to zoom in and out.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Some tips haven't been updated since version 1.1, and due to this, there are no tips for the Crimson.
    • Also due to this, two of the tips erroneously state that a hammer is needed to remove furniture items.
  • There is a typo in one of the tips: "both improve your ability jump"
  • One of the tips confirms that the Old Man and the Clothier are, in fact, the same person.
  • One tip says you need 3 Fallen Stars to craft a Mana Crystal (like on the Desktop version Desktop version and Console version Console version), while on the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and 3DS version 3DS version you actually need 5.
  • One of the tips "torches and glowsticks can be a light for you in dark places" is a reference to the crystal phial in "The Lord of the Rings"
  • A tip states that you should "watch for falling meteorites". However, the falling meteorite itself won't be seen, only the crater it forms.
  • The tip "Sand is overpowered" is same as one of the Desktop Version Desktop edition's title messages.
  • The tip "When dealing with a Goblin Army, crowd control is key" is a reference to the achievement "Crowd control", which is gained by destroying the Goblin Army.
  • The tip “To craft potions, place a bottle on a table to make an alchemy station. Double, double, toil and trouble!” is a reference to the three witches in the Shakespearean play, Macbeth
