Junk Jack X is a game created by Pixbits SRL. It costs $4.99 and is available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.


I recently reviewed Terraria and I had a terrible experience with it. I don’t like Minecraft or Terraria in general, but the mobile version of Terraria was just a headache. I’m a gamer and I know how to play video games properly, but Terraria was really confusing and not fun.

Right after playing Terraria, I went over to Junk Jack X. Boy let me tell you… There’s a huge difference between these games. The first one is that Junk Jack X has a multiplayer mode, and it costs just as much as Terraria, $4.99. So that makes this game even more valuable.

The other difference between Junk Jack X and Terraria is that Terraria was ported to iOS. Junk Jack X has no PC version, it was designed specifically for a mobile experience. You can tell this right away because the interface is way easier to use, and there are no annoying joy sticks. There’s also an “Easy Crafting” mode that beginners can enable to make their gameplay easier.

Junk Jack X also looks really great. Just because Minecraft has a pixelated style, doesn’t mean Terraria should copy them. However that’s exactly what Terraria did. Junk Jack X still looks really retro, but the pixilation is not as dramatic.

While I was playing Terraria I had a feeling of impending doom and of zombies destroying my “vital organs.” When I was killed I would be told my arms were ripped off, or my head was eaten, etc. In Junk X Jack I don’t feel like that at all. I feel like I’m playing a fun game, not some depressing pixelated badly designed random level.


You can play with up to 2 players online, and up to 4 players on local Wi-Fi. That already makes this game awesome.

In Terraria you can build over 750 crafts, discover more than 1,600 treasures, equip more than 350 peaceable items, and fight more than 150 different creatures and monsters. You can create explosives, shelves, signs, dyes and anything else imaginable.

The in game guide is also really great for beginners. It’s way better than the game guide I was exposed to in Terraria.

Did I mention that Junk Jack X also has a farming system with more than 50 plants? Some of these pants are even alien or exotic.

Another great thing about this game is that it has multiple planets you can play on.

The Good:

Everything as outlined above.

The Bad:

While playing this game I didn’t find any glitches or shortcomings. It is worth every single penny.


Even if you don’t like Minecraft or Terraria, this game is so good that you should give it a try. It was designed with copying other games in mind. Terraria iOS is just a port of the PC version, which is a copy of Minecraft (but in 2D).

Junk Jack X on the other hand is not a port. It is designed exclusively for a mobile experience, and you tell that even the gameplay is really unique.

This game is worth it for anyone who wants to have some fun without getting stuck in caves or glitching out like in Terraria.
