App description: Junk Jack is a 2D sandbox game where you can explore, build your home and survive in random procedurally generated worlds full of monsters, treasures and hidden secrets!

---------

What the press says:

"A Wonderful Free-Roam Game with an Irresistible Pixel Aesthetic"
-Iphonealley.com, 4.5/5

"It has charm in spades. While it isn't the first 2D sandbox building game out there, it is a particularly attractive one, sporting crisp pixel art and gorgeous lighting effects. "
"
-Toucharcade, 4/5

"Junk Jack is a hands-down, no questions asked must-own for any and all iOS users who love sandbox crafting games."
-148apps, 4.5/5

"Junk Jack isn't Minecraft, nor does it feel like it needs to be as its 2D world provides the same level of novel exploration fun while presenting challenges of its own to overcome; a tightly balanced free form experience that's only going to get better with time."
-Appspy, 5/5

Found a bug. My existing world will only allow me to move to the left. Every row suddenly traps me and creates a wall not letting me move right.

I didn't do much in the world so I'm not losing much, but a bug is a bug.

Ouch, that never happened, sorry for that.

Awesome update. Thanks so much for making the app universal and adding the hold to break option! iCloud sync is the last thing the app really needs IMHO.

Please please give us iCloud support! Transferring saves via iExplorer is getting tiring!

Yeah icloud to swap worlds would be awesome! I mean theres 3slots so would be easy not to overwrite data like a few games with stupid icloud issues... Infinity Blade 2 comes to mind grrrrrr
Oh and switching off enemies is great lol! Now i can just concentrate on digging
