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

^ There are a lot of items in the game that serve no purpose other than decoration or they just exist for you to collect. Most of those probably fall into this category.

Just bought this a couple of hours ago with Lego hp, and I have to say, this is addicting. Been playing for about 3 hours straight... Took me 10 minutes to figure out how to make an axe. Lol too used to minecraft.

Sorry, missed your post before - when you connect your iThing to iTunes, you can browse the games currently on the phone. When you select Junk Jack, you will see there's a "File Manager" window (I believe that's what it's called) and there you will see different files for each world you have.

Transferring them into the same box when you have the other iThing connected copies your worlds directly.

They may not have a use yet, but some of them most certainly will in future updates

I personally don't think they will come out with a recipe involving every single item. Some of these will probably continue to be just interesting treasures and drops.
Skull Soul is used in making Dead Saplings. It is on the wiki.

sulphur crystal is used for yellow dye.

Of course not. some items will always just be collectible junk

Dark Stone Crystal is also used for dyes.
