    ^ sadly no.
    It's ~56 MB so 6 MB more than allowed to be downloaded with 3G.

    All I know is that every time I try to play Terraria I start on a chunk of terrain next to water or a cliff, so I usually feel limited in the directions i can go (i may be wrong) and start chopping down trees and then a mob kills me. I am sure it's a fun game, but I just don't like not knowing what is going on. In Minecraft and JJ I know I have a day to make a basic shelter before mobs attack, but I don't have the rhythm of Terraria down, I suppose.

    Still can't decide if I'm going to spend my last money on this game. If someone can answer these questions, that will be highly appreciated! :)

    - Is the world infinite? The first Junk Jack wasn't infinite, and you could reach the end of the world pretty quickly. Is it bigger now? Because I love to explore stuff on the surface (like NPC's, but I doubt there are NPC's in JJX?).
    - Are the controls the same?
    Thanks a lot!

    The iOS version of Terraria has a tutorial that tells you how to build a basic shelter and make it safe. You also start out with a sword so mobs are not a very big problem... but due to the bigger blocks in JJX it's certainly much easier to get something basic built.

    Do I need to buy the first one to understand this game or doesn't it matter?

    I would say that they are popular with the younger people because, well, minecraft is like a really badass set of Legos.

    You mix that in with the creativeness and exploration of this type of game and time flys by.

    It does take a little getting use to. Learning the ins and outs and what not. It's equivalent to learning all the weapons, maps, and camping spots in something like call of duty. Only easier because there's no rush here.

    You can be as blunt as you like. All I know is out of the games on this kind Junk Jack X is the only one that thinks it's less fortunate customers don't matter. Not everybody can afford to throw £200+ at apple every time they churn out a new product and iOS.4 is one downgrade away from the iOS.5 and still isn't that old itself, I can understand it with iOS.3 and lower but not iOS.4. The reason I chose to give my money to Terraria instead is because unlike the makers of Junk Jack X they still seem to think that the percentage of people still left on other slightly older devices are worth developing for too.

    Not sure where you're trying to go with this. Do you have evidence that they based their decision on that? Why are you not willing to accept that there might be technical reasons? Apart from OS capabilities, support for 4.x also means supporting devices that have half the RAM of the smallest 5.1 capable device. Did you expect a huge upgrade that adds tons of stuff but for some reason also that it wouldn't have higher requirements?

    How does that work, since Terraria also requires iOS 5.1?

    So no iCloud support between devices? I don't get why a lot of developers don't do iCloud support. Is it hard to implement? Or does it not work? iCloud's been out for quite a while now. To me it seems like iCloud support would just be standard on a universal game.

    I'm really torn on whether to play this on my ipad on my iphone. The obvious choice would be the ipad but I don't carry my ipad around with me. It stays at home with my wife and daughter. So... I could play this on my iphone for when I'm out and I have spare time, but at night I would like to play it on my ipad... If iCloud was supported I wouldn't have this dilemma. What to do...

    Awesome game, really enjoying it. Never really got into the original junk jack, but when I saw this has multiplayer I couldn't pass it up.

    So I booted it up, and after a few minutes I knew I was in for a real treat the second I crafted my first wooden armor set lol.

    While there is no iCloud support yet, remember that you can transfer your worlds and player via iTunes :)

    How do you travel to other planets?
