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

It's good to finally own a Universal Jack Jack. Initially I wasn't sure if they'd come out with that or an iPad edition.

I prefer to play it on the iPod still, perhaps because I'm used to that. In any case, I didnt't feel a huge difference on either.

Yes, but you'll need to do a bit of work first. You'll need to connect your iThing from which you want to extract the worlds to iTunes and open the Junk Jack page in the iThing's tab. There's a file manager window, which will show a list of your current worlds.

You'll need to save those on your computer and copy them over to the other iThing using the same way. (just don't delete them from the first device, hehe)


Should I make a tutorial for this with pictures and stuff? It seems to be a common question.

Oh, well in that case it should be linked to here as well. I'll ask a moderator to add it to the first post.

I believe LE was pulled off the App Store entirely, following the Universal update last month.

That's been my plan.

It's in my top 3 iPhone games (along with Battleheart and Space Miner).
