Will you be Junk Jack‘s valentine?

Today is, of course, Valentine’s Day. And in celebration of this sentimental occasion, the popular Minecraft-like 2-D sandbox game Junk Jack has just received a short but sweet update.

Effectively removing the game’s Christmas theme and mobs, Junk Jack’s Valentine’s update includes new features, hidden statues, and rare chests:

  • New St. Valentine bunny!
  • New rare St. Valentine Chest
  • New St. Valentine Bow
  • New St. Valentine Arrows
  • Tiny consumable St. Valentine hearts can be found in the world
  • New rare Spider statue
  • New rare Stone Golem statue
  • New rare Worm statue
  • New rare Mummy Pharaoh statue

The update also brings a number of gameplay-enhancing bug fixes.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.2 or later, the latest version of Junk Jack is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $2.99 download.

Admittedly, this is but a minor update when compared to most of Junk Jack’s previous updates. (Just look at the really long changelogs for those.)

But rest assured that, as stated by Junk Jack developer Pixbits, “all our resources right now are focused towards the Junk Jack sequel we’re developing.” Sweet!
