I can't speak for Terraria on the iPad but I can tell you that it has a TON of hours on my Steam.  I like it.  But once you beat the baddies, the magic is gone.  And some of them are harassing.

 

I'm looking at Junk Jack X.  Didn't care for the earliest incarnation of Junk Jack but they fixed a bunch since then.

Thoughts on either of these? I couldn't get in to Minecraft because the Survival Mode wasn't quite "survivalist" enough. I heard that Terraria is more about fighting enemies and such, how much so? 

I felt the same, and LOVE Terraria. I'd bet you will too.

 

And also bought Junk Jack X, loved the first and this one sounds like it's added a ton of stuff.

Terraria for iPad or for Vita? That is the question. I'm thinking the Vita stands a better chance of having good controls, but I hope there's a demo.

Get Terraria on Vita and Junk Jack X on iPad, problem solved!  I've been playing JJX on my iPad and it's great!! Soooo addicting...I've read Terraria has some wonky touch controls on iOS, but JJX controls perfectly! I'm really impressed with how well they did with it.

I've never played mine craft, junk jack or terraria but terraria looks interesting. I only have an iPhone 5 not iPad or Vita. What game should I get!?
Wait now, what did they say
about the human body and proportions of things?

Terraria on Steam was a huge disappointment for me. Played an hour; most of that time was spent digging tunnels. Never wanted to go bam. And I was excited for it.

It's very low action. More action than Minecraft I think, but nothing like an actual action/adventure game. Calling it Metroidvania is about the worst expectation you could lump on it, in my opinion.

Terraria has a lot of action, though not at the level of Metroidvania. You need to play longer before enemies become a threat. You better have some sweet gear to take on the end bosses. I worry touch controls won't be good enough later on in the game.

I gave Terraria an hour. Not for me. Really disliked my time with it. Just wanted to make sure curious people didn't only get positive opinions when there are gamers like myself who didn't enjoy it.

W.E.L.D.E.R. is free. I've gotten a lot enjoyment out of this title and recommend it to anyone who likes word games.I think it's usually $2.99. Now, if I could just rediculous fishing for free...

Kinda OT...

 

Does anyone know of an iPad app that can handle MS Office doc/docx files with tables (Word tables, not Excel embedded tables) and won't screw up the formatting going between tablet and desktop.  So far, I've had the best "luck" with Office 2 HD, but the font formatting (style and size) always gets lost in the transition.  So far others I have had less success with are: Pages, Documents to Go, Quick Office Pro HD and Documents Unlimited.

FYI, Star Wars Force Collection came out.. it's "free"-mium.  

 

I can tell you the game is most certainly NOT free if you want to actually play against others.  Any 4-5 star character (starting out) will stomp on a regular 3 star, even if that 3 star is leveled pretty high.  For example, my 3 star Vader, level 30 outta 40, gets trashed by a starter Fett or Anakin Skywalker.  

 

I used some of my game card money to buy the 'starter' set for the deal and the remainder to buy a 6 pack of cards.  Not a SINGLE card over 3 stars.  I don't even bother fighting 4-5 star people.  It's insane how OP it is.  There ARE rewards for gold and silver packs that SAY they have the chance for a rare character... I'm not so sure.  I've unlocked most of them.  The best card I got (twice) was a 3 star Padme in disguise.  The 1-2 stars are useless.    

 

It's also VERY expensive.  The "levelling" consists of tapping on baddies until your "energy" runs out.  Then wait for it to spawn again.

 

You collect vehicle cards, and you can get 6 to make a vehicle.  Collecting multiple sets adds a level per set.  You can battle other players to complete missing sets.  Right NOW, vehicle battles are free (for another 20+ hrs).  Then they'll be 4 BP a piece (you can store up to 10).

 

Player battles are all auto-resolved.  Nothing you can do once your team is made can affect the outcome of the battle.
