I don't know how to move in Terraria, I have tried tapping on the ground and scrolling but it doesn't work? Can anyone help me?

    Given that you tried tapping on the ground, I'm assuming you are playing the Terraria iOS version? - You tagged it with the PC version :)

The movement keys are well described by Cyan. Should you have the mobile version: there are a couple of circles in the bottom left corner. Moving the blue cursor in any direction beyong the most inner circle will cause your character to move in that direction; the speed is depending on how far out you move your cursor. Jumping is the same thing.

It is definitely advisable to stick to PC with this game; touchscreen controls can be quite frustrating if you need to be precise, like in this game.


You can move using the W, A, S & D keys.

You can also find a list of all controls here.
