How to summon and defeat the Twins in Terraria

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on November 10th, 2021

The Twins in Terraria are playing out the Eye of Cthulhu’s evil twin fantasy. The Twins are the more difficult Hardmode version of Eye of Cthulhu. They are grouped with the other two mechanical bosses – The Destroyer and the Skeletron Prime, forming the mechanical trio in Hardmode.

The Twins are basically two Eyes of Cthulhu bound by a piece of string. The upper one ( with the red iris) is Retinazer and the lower twin (with the green iris) is Spazmatism.

Terraria can be full of weird bosses. Think about it, you fight the Eye of Cthulhu and the Brain of Cthulhu, but you never meet Cthulhu. Either way, you’ll meet the Eye before the Brain.

If you’ve just started playing Terraria, the Eye of Cthulhu is the first fight in the game. The gimmick here is that the boss is very likely to catch you off guard. To prepare you for the fight, here’s a quick Terraria boss guide!

How to summon and defeat Dreadnautilus in Terraria

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on November 4th, 2021

If you’re into sea adventure stuff, you might already know what a chambered nautilus is. For those who don’t, a nautilus has tentacles like an octopus and a shell-like a snail.

Now, what does this have to do with Terraria? Turns out, a lot. Because Dreadnautilus is a mini-boss that you will face in Hardmode.

How to summon and defeat Eater of Worlds in Terraria

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on November 1st, 2021

For most Terraria players, pre-Hardmode is a rather easy time (when compared to Hardmode itself). But some bosses are hell-bent upon giving you a hard time, and one of them happens to be the Eater of Worlds.

The name ‘Eater of Worlds’ may trigger an image of a strong, muscular ogre-like creature in your head. But get ready to be disappointed because it’s a worm. Yes, an underground worm with two horns on its head.

How to find and defeat Queen Slime in Terraria

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on October 26th, 2021

If it wasn’t for quirky bosses and action-packed boss battles, Terraria would have been rather meh. But, as you explore each region of the game, you come across enemies, bosses, and mini-bosses that keep things interesting.

Queen Slime, just like King Slime, is a completely optional boss. To get ahead in the game, you don’t have to fight her. However, you will get some precious drops if you defeat her.


How to Summon Queen Slime in Terraria

Summoning Queen Slime is not a tedious job. You can summon her in the Hallow by consuming a Gelatin Crystal. You can get this Gelatin Crystal on the Pink Ice Block or the Pearlstone in the underground Hallow area.

All you have to do is use this crystal at any time of the day and at any hour. But remember, you cannot summon the Queen outside of The Hallow.


How to Defeat Queen Slime

Defeating King Slime is rather easy but Queen Slime is smarter and tougher. She won’t keep bouncing in vain. She can teleport next to you and give you a nasty surprise.

Queen Slime can summon minions like Crystal Slimes, Heavenly Slimes, and Bouncy Slimes that come after you. After jumping up and down, she pauses for a few seconds and fires six Regal Gels. Instead of firing Gels, she might choose to stomp you into a pulp.

Considering all this, your best strategy would be to target Queen Slime, dodge her attacks, and slay the minions.


Best Weapons to Beat Queen Slime

To defeat Queen Slime, you can use a weapon like the Daedalus Stormbow paired with Holy Arrows. To move around quickly, try to get hold of some winged boots.

Distracting enemies will be easier if you place disconnected platforms. Finally, the Shield of Cthulhu will protect you against the Queen, but not her minions.


Best Armor for the battle with Queen Slime

As far as armor is concerned, you should go for the Palladium Armor. This is because the Slimes and Gels are likely to hit you. You might get stomped on. Palladium Armor has a Rapid Healing buff, which will be useful for reviving you.

Other than this, make sure you place random platforms all over the arena to jump and dodge across!

Terraria has two kinds of bosses – the annoying ones that stick around for hours and the easy peasy ones that are farmed for drops. King Slime is one such boss that gets farmed for some precious drops.

King Slime is a pre-Hardmode boss that you might encounter in the Forest. This is a totally optional foe that you can choose to skip. But, in case you decide to go head-to-head with King Slime, here’s a boss guide.

Although you might not be able to play Returnal on your phone or tablet (nor would you want to), there are still a bunch of great run-based games on iOS to play. Check out our picks for the best run-based games below:

Practical Tips for League of Legends: Wild Rift (or any other MOBA, for that matter)

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 31st, 2021


League of Legends: Wild Rift has finally made it to the App Store, and it brings a level of polish and balance to mobile MOBAs that you'd expect from one of the most successful game developers in the world. One of the best things I've found about the game so far is just how mobile-friendly it is. Despite all the on-screen buttons and complicated gameplay, Riot Games made an experience that's easy to hop into and hard to pull away from.

In case you're considering downloading the game and aren't a MOBA pro, don't worry. Wild Rift has some great tutorials and practice modes that do a great job of teaching you the ins and outs of how MOBAs work in general as well as mechanics that are unique to this game. That said, there is some general knowledge and practical advice that goes unstated by the game, but is good practice for anyone who decides to play Wild Rift or any other MOBA, for that matter.
