We'll be getting an official iOS version of Terraria sometime in the near future, but for the better part of two years now gamers have been getting their 2D Minecraft fix on iPhone with Pixbits' excellent Junk Jack [$2.99]. As has been discussed for some time now and officially confirmed this past May, Pixbits is working on a pseudo-sequel called Junk Jack X which will contain some pretty big new features including online multiplayer and new worlds to explore. Earlier this week, Pixbits unveiled a new teaser for Junk Jack X showing off some of those awesome-looking new worlds. Check it out.

What's really exciting is that Junk Jack X is entering a beta testing period, which means that its progress is humming along nicely. In fact, you can sign up right on the Pixbits blog to be a beta tester if you're good at searching out bugs and reporting on them. I really liked the original Junk Jack and can't wait for Junk Jack X to arrive in my dirty little hands, so as we all wait for an official release date join in on the conversation in our forums and we'll bring you more news when it hits.

      • theorangeipod

        I hope that they support devices other than the 5s. game looks sweet!

  • nonstickron

    I just want the original to get iphone5 widescreen love.

    • Loading3

      I think the reason junkjack does not support iphone 5 eide screen is because in order to do that, it will have to drop support older devices. But i dont really remember it clearly. So that with a grain of salt.

      • Xaphos

        That's exactly what it is

      • twick

        Incorrect. You can detect device in code and adjust accordingly. Source : I develop for iOS.

    Growtopia is a far better game in my opinion, but I can see why people would enjoy Junk Jack. Both games have similar layouts, but different concepts. Junk Jack is definitely a good game to make a sequel for, and I wonder how much it will differ from the original.

    • WarMachine

      There's nothing to do in that game...it's worse than blockheads

    • Peter

      I myself think Junk Jack is a far better game than Growtopia. To be honest I've played it more than Minecraft.

      • Taclys

        JJ is great and all, but seriously? More than minecraft?

        *shrug* that makes one of us. I've invested more time in minecraft than most of my iOS gaming, put together.

      • Peter

        For some reason Minecraft never clicked with me. I like Terraria and Junk Jack a lot, but never had that much fun with Minecraft. I know it's a very good game, though.

  • pixel_girl

    What?! it's a whole new game? what about the people who payed for junk jack? Junk Jack x is way cooler..and of you don't have money anymore what are you going to do? wait forever untill you get a gift card

    • Bischi777

      What was your question?

  • Taclys

    Looks great, but why stay on one scene of the trailer for the last 25 seconds of the video?

  • SmackDatButt

    Lol I wonder how much thy had to pay the producers of that audio track to let them use it

    • Bischi777

      Seriously? Producers?

      • Nigel Greenhill

        Stop bitching. You clearly know what he meant.

  • ChaudMasterFlex

    It's about damn time!

  • hervin89

    The end of that trailer was very long winded!!but cant wait for the game

  • Nigel Greenhill
