    Tags: , Junk Jack, , , release date   

    Junk Jack X is almost there! 

    Hello guys!

    We’re glad to tell you that Junk Jack X is almost ready to be sent to Apple. We have almost finished beta testing phase and we’re quite proud of the result so far :)

    We can’t give you an exact release date but we guess you will be able to play it within some weeks! We managed to implement every feature we planned for the initial release, including 5 different planets. In addition we have already planned some hefty things but they’ll come with updates in the months following the release.

    As you may already know we do not like the freemium formula for a game like Junk Jack X. So it will be a paid game: you pay once and get the whole game experience.

    The launch price will be 4.99$ and it will be universal.

    We hope to be able to announce a precise release date soon, in the meanwhile stay tuned and enjoy some iPad screenshots!




    Thanks for all your support in these months :)

    Junk Jack X beta test & teaser 

    Hello everyone!

    We worked hard in the last two months and we’re proud to officially announce that beta testing recruiting is starting right now. You can apply by submitting the form at the following link:


    Please consider the fact that beta testing is useful for us if you help in finding bugs, don’t take it just as an opportunity to play an early version of the game because this will just slow the release, so apply only if you are willing to take this role seriously! Thanks

    Beta Testing will start in some time, as everything is not so ready yet but already in good shape :) Chosen testers will be contacted by mail!

    In the meanwhile, enjoy this short Junk Jack X teaser:

    Junk Jack 1.2.4 – St Valentine Update is out! 

    Hello people!

    Apple just approved version 1.2.4 of Junk Jack that removes the Chrismas theme (finally we’d say) and brings some minor fixes and some stuff for St Valentine!

    New Features:

    • Removed Christmas theme and mobs
    • 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

    Bug Fixes:

    • Falling on blocks will make the correct block sound
    • The inventory outline for the cactus is now correct
    • It’s possible to hold on an item in a craftbook page to open its craft page (if it’s craftable)
    • It’s possible to hold on an addon label in a craftbook page to open its craft page
    • Player doesn’t get stuck inside blocks anymore when placing blocks on him
    • Wrapped ribbon decoration can now be placed on blocks adjacent to player
    • Jungle tree now makes the right sound when hit

    As you can see this update is minor compared to the huge updates we did so far, this because we’re so busy building the foundations for the sequel of Junk Jack that we simply couldn’t do better than this. We hope you understand that :)

    Now go and update the game on your devices, have fun with Junk Jack!

    Working on the new inventory interface.. 

    Hi guys, let’s break the silence with the user interface we’re developing for our new game.

    The development is going rather well, we’re quite enthusiast of what’s happening here at Pixbits in these days.

    We’re currently working on the equip system and we’re trying to make it either useful either fun and customizable :)

    There are other features too, can you spot them?


    Even if this is not final, it should give you an idea of how it should look like :)

    We hope you like it! :D
