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

Can you switch to different world appearance and not snowy one?
I mean, if for example i want to use previous world appearance, can i have it? or is it simply rewritten as patches are released?

You cant change the world appearance in Junk Jack. But you can use old worlds if you want to have trees without snow on them.

On another note: What an awesome update. The game keeps getting better and better. I am very excited for JJ2, which will have lots of new features.

I also bought all new IAPs to support the developer.

Thats like telling me no, then yes. I dont have the game, so i dont know how it works. My point is if authors add new world appearance and at some part they stop work on game, i dont want to be stuck for example on snowy looking created world.

So my question was, when you start the game, there is some option to create world and there you choose what kind of scenery it should have?
