Pixbits, developer of the popular Junk Jack X, has confirmed that a huge update for the application has been submitted to Apple and should be available to download soon. The update makes a large number of changes to the sandbox game, according to a post published at Pixbits' blog. Main features, however, include a new theme for Thanksgiving, four new in-app purchases, new items, and more furniture combinations than before. Here's a complete list, as outlined by the developer itself:
Furthermore, an even bigger list of bug fixes and performance enhancements have also been made to the $4.99 app, all of which are outlined and described at Pixbits' blog. As a reminder, Junk Jack X offers iDevice users an "out-of-this-world crafting experience," allowing users to explore and build up a world of their own, to stock it with items, and to do battle with enemies (which include goblins and zombies). It's a fun and addictive application, and will especially be appreciated by fans of the sandbox genre, and by those who enjoyed the prequel app, Junk Jack. Pixbits notes that the update for Junk Jack X should be available to download soon. As mentioned, the application can be downloaded for $4.99, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
