Pixbits posted today about all the features and now I’m going to tell you some of them and also give you a ton of screenshots from the game. First off I have to say some bad news. Because of Apple’s new policy which does not allow apps to update unless they have full screen support Pixbits will no longer be able to update Junk Jack. I’m sure some of you may have already heard this but I just thought I would post it so that everyone knew.
Yes it is finally here and also all the screenshots that will be shown are from in-game however that does not mean that these are final. So that way that multiplayer will work is either through bluetooth/local which will have the capacity for four different players or Game Center which can host two people however in the future Pixbits has stated that they wish to make it so that more people can play on the worlds. Also at this point there is no PvP as it is not a priority but aside from that you will be able to explore build and fight alongside your friends. Another thing that you can see in the picture is the implementation of liquids. There isn’t much on it yet just that it has been implemented.
The next thing that I think is awesome is the new character customization screen!
As you can see there are different hair styles, skin tones, shirts, pants, and also the ability to change gender. The biggest part of customization is the fact that you will be able to craft and find new clothing that will either make you character look better or possibly increase some attributes like health, speed, damage, or defence.
Next are two things that a lot of people have been asking for. Number one is the amount of worlds that you want to have. Pixbits has made it so that you can have an arbitrary amount of worlds and if you are like me and have no idea what that means without Google I’ll just tell you. It means that it is your choice how many worlds you want to have. So to me it sounds like infinite amounts of worlds which would be awesome but only time will tell. The next thing is the introduction of a creative mode. I know that a lot of people have been wanting this so that they can make the house of their dreams without having to gather each material which can take a very long time. The only change from survival to creative is that there are no mobs and blocks do not drop anything.
The next thing I want to cover are the graphics and boy are they something. Not only did pixbits redraw all of them but the also added some minor details which make the game more pleasing in a way. This includes smoke and sparks from torches, parallax skies, and also a smooth lighting engine all of which make the game look that much more amazing.
Also included in the game is new music by the one and only Bright Primate who did the original music for Junk Jack, the revamping of forges which will make them more like minecraft with a fuel source and an object being smelted. There will also be more kinds of weapons some of which will be more of less effective than others against certain monsters. Also all the features from Junk Jack will be included but revamped to refined and improved for Junk Jack X.
THE EXPLORATION OF ALIEN WORLDS!!!!
Yes you just read that correctly brand new never before seen planets to go and explore however getting to these planets will be no small feat. In order to find these worlds you must first start a single player adventure world which is similar to the way Junk Jack is. In this adventure mode you must journey to find portal pieces that when assembled will allow you to travel and then also to make these different worlds. In these worlds you will find new mobs, new materials, and new items.
So that really is all the news I have for you about Junk Jack X. As far as price goes the only thing that we know currently is that it will not be freemium. Another thing that has been stated is that the release will be sometime in Q3 or Q4 or in other words between July and December. If you have any questions, comments or concerns post a comment and tell me about. If not thanks for reading and I hope that you continue to read. Thanks again and remember all of you are awesome!
