*If you don't have Junk Jack we suggest you to first purchase it and then consider Junk Jack Retro to enjoy where all started!*

Junk Jack is now called Junk Jack Retro, with widescreen support!

Junk Jack Retro is the prequel of Junk Jack, a 2D sandbox game where you can explore, build your home and survive in random procedurally generated worlds full of monsters, treasures and hidden secrets!


What the press says:

"A Wonderful Free-Roam Game with an Irresistible Pixel Aesthetic"
-Iphonealley.com, 4.5/5

"It has charm in spades. While it isn't the first 2D sandbox building game out there, it is a particularly attractive one, sporting crisp pixel art and gorgeous lighting effects. "
-Toucharcade, 4/5

"Junk Jack is a hands-down, no questions asked must-own for any and all iOS users who love sandbox crafting games."
-148apps, 4.5/5

"Junk Jack isn't Minecraft, nor does it feel like it needs to be as its 2D world provides the same level of novel exploration fun while presenting challenges of its own to overcome; a tightly balanced free form experience that's only going to get better with time."
-Appspy, 5/5

Sometime items can be unresponsive to moving.

I wish the game was more responsive to dragging items. Sometime when you try to move an item, it take several tries to be able to move it.

Junk Jack

THANK YOU for updating this game!!! When I first bought it I never really clicked with it. I tried multiple times to get into it, but just couldn't.

But over the last couple years, I've grown to enjoy the crafting genre and the update prompted me to give this another shot. Now, 4 days later or so, and I've spent pretty much all of my spare-time digging, collecting materials and building everything I can. This game is fantastic. Especially with the casual/no enemy option... You can play to relax or go digging looking for stronger and stronger enemies and weapons.

Once I build a few homes I'm completely happy with, it's great to know I've got a-whole-nother Junk Jack game to get into!

Again, THANK YOU for not just abandoning this game and making sure it'll last into the near future (and hopefully get you a few more new fans as well!).

Very recommended for crafting fans!!!!

Junk jack retro and junk jack both AMAZING games!

Junk jack came to iOS FIRST before the "PC" port of Terraria ..Junk Jack is made for mobiles and not some PC port ..
Pros :
many things to craft
Much to do, mine, explore, craft, gather.. fight decorate play online with friends !
The graphics are great !
The inapps are optional but help support the dev I recommend grabbing the full crafting book..
Offline wifi is not needed to play !
Easy to pick up hard to put down ...
I got this as a Freebie they were doing and it has yet to appear in my purchases as bought ..yet allows me to review proving I have it 😡

Otherwise decent game if you like this please go grab Junk Jack it's got WAY WAY more fun and features! Ive had that for a long time and love it!
