With just a few days left before Halloween, Junk Jack has finally crafted its very own spooktacular update. Released in the App Store nearly a year ago, Junk Jack is a 2-D sandbox game for iPhone and iPad that's reminiscent of Minecraft and Terraria. In the game, you play as the title character, who is stuck in a retro-inspired pixelated world. It's a mad, mad world, and you have to collect various materials for you to survive in it. That world is actually made even madder by Junk Jack's new Halloween-themed update. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. The new update includes new monsters, statues, throwable weapons, blocks, crafts, and more. Check out the update list of new features below, which continues Junk Jack's tradition of releasing really long changelogs:
That's a lot of new features. But it appears that Junk Jack has committed a notable omission with this "post-iPhone 5 launch" update: iPhone 5 support, of course. Perhaps that will be included in the game's next laundry list of new features. The new version of Junk Jack is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $2.99 universal download.
