Junk Jack X 3.0 update is available on the App Store!

Welcome to Junk Jack X 3.0!

junkjack3-0appstore

This is our biggest update yet, it includes months of work and brings all the new features and improvements from our PC/Mac version to iOS. The changes are too many to list here, but we’ll try to mention at least the major changes below here!

There is a downside though: unfortunately we had to change the whole engine, this makes actual worlds and player incompatible, forcing you to start a new game to experience the new patch. Old worlds and players won’t be deleted but they’ll become unaccessible from the game.

** PLEASE NOTE THAT UPDATING THE GAME WILL MEAN A FRESH START WITH NEW PLAYERS AND NEW WORLDS **

We sincerely hope you understand, sorry for any trouble this may cause.
This is the only choice we had, the only alternative would have been to sell a different game under the same brand which wasn’t acceptable for us.

Happy mining!

  1. I love Junk Jack. But I won’t be playing it any more. I invested hundreds of hours into digging, accumulating and sorting items into 50+ chests in my “home” world. It’s bad enough that my carefully constructed worlds are now gone forever, but you couldn’t even support carrying over some of the basic resources from my character? I now have to re-collect all my iron and copper and gold and …??? No thanks. I’m done.

  2. Really disappointing that the longest fans of Junk Jack on IOS are the ones who’s characters and worlds are no longer supported.
