    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

    • It’s possible to hold on an item in a craftbook page to open its craft page (if it’s craftable)

    • Wrapped ribbon decoration can now be placed on blocks adjacent to player

    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!
