I have to ask.... Is this like Minecraft? I really don't know, and I don't want to read 1600 posts.

In short, nope.

They are similar as in you build, but that's about it in my opinion.

Yes. This is like Minecraft where you build and craft and dig, but the perspective is in a 2D side view rather than 3D first person view

I'd recommend watching some gameplay videos on YouTube of people who regularly play it. That will give you a good idea how much like or unlike Minecraft it may feel like to you.

The main thing that keeps me playing this more than Minecraft on my iPhone is the controls - this game was built from the ground up for a touch screen, and is a joy to play.

If you like exploring and building - especially if you like building details, JJX is a great choice. Probably it's weakest points (compared to Minecraft) would be that combat is pretty simple, and worlds are not 'infinite' (they wrap around.) However, there are multiple (and very different) worlds to explore & exploit, and one more difference is that your inventory is maintained between worlds - you can bounce around between several, carrying things as you go.

Thanks all.... I kind of want to support the developer for his efforts. But I don't need a minecraft clone.

Its a million miles from being a clone.

I've never clicked with minecraft and other building games, I even deleted this a few weeks after buying as I didn't "get" it but then when fishing was introduced I decided to give it another try, I've spent way too many hours than I dare admit in this game now lol.
