Welcome to Junk Jack X 2.4.4!

This version introduces a new gardening system: discover new flower types by combining their seeds and get more than 15000 unique plants! We also added a new planet called Mykon with new monsters, rare weapon drops, equip pieces, placeable objects and blocks. A new Tone Emitter device has been introduced to let you compose music directly inside the game! Last but not least were adding many bug fixes and tweaks which hopefully will improve your experience with Junk Jack X.

This is a big surprise. I need to take my word back on this week being one of the most horrible week in IOS released. In addition, I love how the dev for Terraria and Junk Jack X decided to release their games simultaneously worldwide.

Nice, all my crafting and exploring needs met in one night by two games. This has quickly become another awesome week on the AppStore.

And it's not even 11pm EST.

My creativity modes just went into overdrive. Java script work - put on pause for the night.

Geez. I'm not on the Minecraft person, but both of these games are intriguing. The screenshots show JJX to have sharper graphics and have a great iOS pedigree. But, Terraria has a huge PC following with some good reviews. I'd rather not get both, but am uncertain which one to purchase. Decisions, decisions...

How could they do this to me? Junk Jack X and Terraria in the same night? At least space them out a couple weeks. Now I don't know which one to play first...

Can there be two Game of the Week winners?
