It appears that Pixbits is building a reputation as a developer of not few words. At least this much is apparent when you take a look at the change logs for its pet project, the popular 2D sandbox game Junk Jack. Indeed, the release notes for today’s update to Junk Jack should be proof enough. But let me preclude you from thinking that Pixbits actually exhibits unnecessary wordiness by hastening to add that its not few words are, in fact, on account of the scores of improvements that it introduces to Junk Jack update after update.
The latest Junk Jack update brings, by my count, 32 new features described in, by iA Writer‘s count, 188 words. Moreover, it brings 37 enhancements detailed in 420 words. It’s that loaded. You can view the full list of changes on Pixbits’ development blog, including various new mobs, different biome revamps, and new craftable addons. But perhaps the most noteworthy change of all is the app’s universalization. Since it launch in November last year, Junk Jack has always been an iPhone-only app. Now, it has been designed to take advantage of the iPad’s larger real estate as well.
Sharing significant similarities with the acclaimed PC world-building games Terraria and Minecraft, the iOS version of which has also been updated recently, Junk Jack is available in the App Store for $2.99. You can take AppAdvice’s word for it: it’s good.
