Im still trying to figure out which one to get though, as im not really looking to buy a coupe games from a genre I usually play, not to mention a premium price of $5 each.
Yeah, you're right but in my defense, I didn't know JJX was coming this week when I posted that.

While sandbox games aren't my favorite style of games either, I do enjoy the 2D versions like Terraria and Junk Jack, so I was pretty happy last night.

While the two games are very similar, I would say Terraria is more focused on action and JJX is more focused on customizing. Both games have exploration and crafting and enemies to fight. Terraria has you fighting huge boss monsters and JJX has you crafting huge monster buildings. Both games do what the other does just a bit differently and with a little more flare.

Cool... I went with JJX, mainly because of the multiplayer, which the TA article got me to dive in.

Since you said they are both great at what they do, i guess there really isnt a wrong answer, so i hope JJX opens a new genre to me, and then i'll eventually pick up Terraria too.

JJX is currently my favorite of the two. Probably because I am familiar with everything from the first one. One thing that makes the game a lot more enjoyable for me is to buy the $0.99 IAP that fully unlocks all the crafting book recipes, otherwise you have to find all the recipes in game or manually set up the crafting window. Which isn't a huge deal but really just makes it quicker and easier to buy the IAP.

Almost 60-point difference in the final results. Biggest gap ever?
