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", 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

The devs have gone silent though - so either they are silently playing elves and submitted the update or they missed the deadline for a guarantee beat the iTunes lockdown approval. And with the size of that update it will need all the time it can get!

Would be a shame though since I would have loved to be playing the Christmas update before Christmas! The rest though is good enough on its own! I mean and more so!

An ETA or a verification it was submitted would be awesome, otherwise going to err on the side of caution in order to not get my hopes up too high and hope I don't lose too many more pick axes down the mine shafts! (that is actually the part of the update I am looking most forward to - the reset of the hold to throw counter)

And can someone PLEASE tell me how to finish the silly statues? MORE PAINTINGS - that's all I GET - PAINTINGS - I can have a whole gallery by now of the same 7 paintings!!!

Cool beans! Wow I am psychic!

SO excited for this update - really hope it hits before the lockdown!

Does the update that was submitted make it universal?
12-14-2011, 06:17 PM
Yay, early Christmas present! I was hoping to play with 1.0.4 on my trip. And that list of features keeps on growing every time I see it. It's unbelievable that they added so much content in just one update.

Great to hear the huge additions!

Is there an index of what materials are stronger than others?

I guess Mithril is best?

Also I do wish there was a way to trade. I have 400 iron lumps to get rid of, but not enough coal.

Lastly, is there any point to ornaments like jewels, goblets and rings because I have about 6 chests full of jewellery and I don't know what to do with them. - News, Reviews and Discussion on Mac App Store Gaming.
