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

Oh well, hopefully an update will come to get the game working on the older devices. Guess Santa's gonave to look into upgrading the kids iPods this Christmas...

Thanks for the info...
No, I'm pretty sure iOS 5 isn't coming to older devices.

I am but I see why they did what they did. It must have to do with the durability of the tools you use as well, and the surface that you are clearing with them. If they can program all that together I am sure that would be preferable to how it is at the moment. Though I am getting used to it, the sounds that it makes for each surface and then those boulders you can't seem to crush with anything!

So those boulders - if you clear around it will they fall down? If you are under it will it crush you? (all those hours of Gold Miner I guess are rubbing off here)

Unless they changed something major then no it won't fall or crush you. At least it never happened in the beta

Mmk, so this game definitely looks like something I'd love to play but I have NO experience playing Minecraft...

How easy is the game to grasp for those not familiar with crafting items and things like that?

EDIT: I should mention I saw Bertman's post asking the same thing but was looking for a more detailed answer than "yes, get it"

Game looks great in the screenshots. How does it look on an iPhone 4?

Unfortunately not. they did in an early build, but the devs weren't quite happy with it. I was told that it'll probably be included in a future update though

Would be cool if they fell, just not the crushing part. But again, glad I won't die working around under them!
