What the press says:

"A Wonderful Free-Roam Game with an Irresistible Pixel Aesthetic"
-Iphonealley.com, 4.5/5

"It has charm in spades. While it isn't the first 2D sandbox building game out there, it is a particularly attractive one, sporting crisp pixel art and gorgeous lighting effects. "
"
-Toucharcade, 4/5

"Junk Jack is a hands-down, no questions asked must-own for any and all iOS users who love sandbox crafting games."
-148apps, 4.5/5

"Junk Jack isn't Minecraft, nor does it feel like it needs to be as its 2D world provides the same level of novel exploration fun while presenting challenges of its own to overcome; a tightly balanced free form experience that's only going to get better with time."
-Appspy, 5/5

If you actually find the controls on the touchscreen for Survivalcraft, et al, immersive, then I can see where you wouldn't find this a superior experience.

However, I find myself futzing with interface more than anything with the 3D craft games, this just isn't the platform for it (for me at any rate). Junk Jack removes all the awkwardness of 3D controls on a phone sized device, and gives me an absolutely charming time killer. Been playing on and off since launch and can't wait for JJX.

Ok, I'm back. Considering this game again. Should I get this or wait for X or for Terraria?
