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

I vaguely remember reading something like that somewhere, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't a product of wishful thinking. So thanks for the confirmation.

This game is surprisingly fun. I do tend to backup regulary, but due to crashes I have lost some cool stuff. Oh well, I am sure over time I will find it all again and then some. I wonder if the crashes are (all) due to the game itself though. Since I have updated to 5.0.1 I even have Safari crashing at random times.

Thanks for making such a great game!

I tend to agree. But I'm also trawling the Pixbits site. (not to be confused with trolling!)

Which I also do.

I was digging very deep and hadn't set up my ladders yet. I died. Is there any way to get to the bottom of the shaft I dug without killing myself or spending like 20 minutes redigging?
