Terraria is proof that 2D games are still thriving despite today’s ultra-realistic game design philosophy which most developers have embraced. Terraria’s worlds can be vast, and to unlock their secrets, you will need the help of Terraria map viewers.

With the aid of these third-party programs, you can see the entire randomly generated Terraria map and dissect its secrets.

Of course, purists will say that the unknown is what makes them fun, but with some Terraria map viewers, you can also edit your map to stop corruption from destroying your work of art.
