v2.4.9: Wednesday May 25 2016 (Christmas removed)
Hello everyone!</br>

We reverted the game icon and world theme to its natural, non-Christmassy, state!

We're sorry for the lack of updates/news in the previous months but we were busy launching Junk Jack on PC/Mac platforms!

We're now trying to integrate all the enhancements we did on the PC/Mac version back to the iOS version whenever possible, stay tuned and expect major changes in the future!

v3.0: Nov 04, 2016 (250+ treasures, Tor, world sizes, more electronics, tons of other enhancements)
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. 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!

Changelog:
