- For the mobile version history, see Mobile Version History.
The mobile version of Terraria is ported by 505 Games in collaboration with Codeglue and RakNet and runs on Android, iOS and Windows mobile devices. This version is currently equivalent (roughly) to the desktop 184.108.40.206 version. It also has some content that is not included in the desktop or Console versions, including exclusive enemies, bosses, pets, and other items.
Some items may be removed in further updates to the mobile and console version though, to make all of the versions “similar.”
The mobile version is available for purchase on iOS, Android (via Google Play Store), Android (via Amazon Appstore), and Windows Phone devices for $7.99 (€4.48 / £3.99.)
See the mobile FAQ maintained by 505 Games for some technical tips.
Some items may also appear in the Console version and the version. The mobile version also includes items introduced in Console 1.2.
