Hi Everyone!

It's Rob from Metaversal Studios announcing for the first time, on the Touch Arcade forums, that we have a huge update for our action/arcade title, Updraft Jack!

With the forthcoming 3.0 update players will now be able to experience the title on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for FREE. Not only have we made Updraft Jack Universal, it also incorporates iCloud saving!

We have been constantly updating Updraft Jack by adding new content (worlds, costumes, power-ups) and tightening the overall game since it first launched. As a result, we are proud to say that verson 3.0 is hands down (or up) the best version of Updraft Jack yet.

We hope our old (and new) fans will agree.

Stay tuned for an official update when Updraft Jack 3.0 goes live. We should have some awesome news to share very soon!

Thank you all for being vocal and helping us make Updraft Jack what it is today, and for continuing to support the fun projects we love to share.

You really do rock!

Please feel free to post any questions, comments and or fun facts. I'll be sure to write back!
