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

iPad is better imho, in the advantage that you get to see more in one screen.

It's a solo experience.

I saw on the Junk Jack forums that people do share world files, and they create story worlds. Really interesting. I've not had the time to explore that for myself.

Is there any chance of them adding multiplayer?

They have all my respect for keeping the price since the game was released 6 months ago. This is what devs should do: believe in their app and their price, and not go into the sale crazyness that IMHO is like a virus in the app store. Go buy it for $3, it will much possibly give you much more entertainment than 3 of the $1 games...
