Games similar to Terraria

Hey guys
I'm basically searching for a game like terraria as I really like games where you have to kill bosses in order to get the best items and not just grind a bunch of mobs constantly till I get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome -_-
I honestly don't mind it being an RPG or sandbox as long as there are many bosses to fight,loads of items and armour sets and I don't mind it being premium but no IAP
Don't need any of those heroes vs monsters/brave heart type games either
I've already tried junk jack x and couldn't really get into it for some reason.

Looking forward to your suggestions

Doesn't that game have IAP?
Is IAP necessary to progress to the end game gameplay?
Thanks for the suggestion though!
I'll try it out
Anyone else got a few suggestions other than this one?

I don't believe the IAP to be necessary. But it's free so why not try it haha

Hope you like it

Growtopia. It's an MMO too, so much better than the iOS version if terraria.

Currently addicted to: Duet game, Threes, Tengami, Oquonie, Platforms Unlimited, Perloo, Wave Wave

I've got a few suggestions since I really like this genre and was just hunting for a game recently (for reference I found these games from this source). Any reason why you think that you couldn't get into Junk Jack? That might help make some better recommendations.

Anyway I recommend:

Growtopia (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/growtopia/id590495115?mt=8)
Deepworld (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/deepworld/id574013495?mt=8)

If you're just looking to fight bosses (and i mean BOSSES) for the loot for crafting stuff, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. Literally has thousands of items and equips.

As for gameplay, it's not Terraria or any basecrafter though.

Exact-Psience My 2014 Top 10 Games of the Year: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Hearthstone, VVVVVV, Battleheart Legacy, Wayward Souls, Bug Heroes 2, Powerpuff Girls Defenders of Townsville, Deep Loot, Monument Valley, Bioshock Honorable Mentions: Traps N Gemstones, Bardbarian, Goblin Sword
