Mmm I only have JJX, terria seems like a disappointment based on pictures and people's views... Would I be correct in this assumption that it's generally a bad game as of now?

If you've been a terraria fan, you'll love it, and it will make you not see all the flaws in the game.
However, Even on a 5th gen I keep crashing, I prefer the bug that JJx Has to a crash.

Asking this question here is bound to give a pre-determined result don't you think? ;)

Anyhoo, the obvious bias from holding the poll on a JJ focused website aside, you're also dealing with the consequences of "post purchase rationalization" (that is the tendency of people to come up with reasons and arguments why their purchase choice was the best one). The odds are that nearly everyone here will have purchased JJX but only some will have purchased Terraria; the results are a foregone conclusion.

That said, I did buy both within minutes of them being on the app store, have put a decent amount of time in with both, and think both games are good but, yes, JJX is my preference between the two.

Obviously, a lot of people are picking Terraria on other forums in these questions because of the "motivational scope" of the game vs. JJX, and they're not wrong. Terraria has multitudes of NPCs and "quests" that give shape to what you're doing, each zone is a mini-adventure unto itself with unique bosses that you take down in sometimes ridiculous battles, and so on. JJX, once again, has you all alone (or with a friend) lost in a blank slate of a world without a single firm goal at all, you write the script.

So, for me, the choice is a combination of JJX's aesthetics and game design, followed by a dash of preferring its control scheme over Terraria's. Terraria feels far more of an action RPG that "just happens" to have all this exploration and crafting mixed in as the underlying mechanic for the RPG. Conversely, JJX is about making your own story without anything at all to guide you (not even a single Game Center achievement ;)). Then, it's probably the anal retentiveness in me, but I also prefer the art design for JJX over Terraria. There's something satisfying that nearly everything is constructed in distinct human sized chunks. Terraria is more like a retro RPG where you can disassemble and reassemble the chunky pixels everything is made from - it's more flexible, sure, but it's also more chaotic and messy. The controls are fairly solid in Terraria but you are dealing with the odd virtual control scheme that amounts to a controller with dual stick d-pads AND a mouse, and just as trying to use such a combination of things in their physical form would at times be wonky and awkward, so aren't the virtual versions. JJX, with the benefit of both being built for the touch screen, but also 2 years of tweaking on iOS touchscreens just feels better to me.

Lol, you should read it. It's a very well written post.
But to sum it up
We're biased toward JJx. Neither is necessarily better than the other, they're just different. He prefers JJx because the graphics and controls (among other things) are better.


I don't have Terraria yet, but I do plan on getting it. I'll give a less biased opinion once I've played it for a bit.
1. Junk-Jack-Wiki
2. The world is big, 256 blocks high and 768 across.
3. Who is John Galt?
4. Lack of objection does not indicate consent.
5. We scream, we shout, we wail, we cry; but in the end we all must die.

Terraria just has more money than Pixbits, so they're just the bigger company and is more popular than Pixbits

Junk Jack X has multiplayer. Terraria iOS doesn't. I think that will be a turning point for some people. (Weird they both have the same price...)

I have terraria, I and Still keep crashing on it, I've learned to stay away from the sides of the map and not talk to the mechanic, till you actually get her in her own house.
The game is also still very confusing, I summoned a boss and have no clue what I did to do it. And I'm not using a wiki.

Also, Terraria is Really Numbed down. There is no finish to the game (boss wise). There is no hardmode and that means once you have beaten the WoF there is nothing else to do. There is a bunch of blocks missing and the worlds are 2x smaller than the Small world on PC.
