New Game: JetPack Joyride, From the Creators of Fruit Ninja Comes an Endless Running Action game (Video)
From the folks who created Fruit Slice, Halfbrick Studios comes Jetpack Joyride, a free side scrolling endless running action game. You play as Barry Steakfries, an angry bureaucrat who decides to make a mess out the secret laboratory where he has been working.
The character uses a jetpack powered by miniguns and has to dodge the facility’s protection system, as he gains more and more speed. He also picks up coins, that can be used to buy more gadgets and vanity items. There are also spin tokens, that allow Barry to use a slot machine, for extra coin rewards. This game was initially available on iOS and it keeps basically the same graphics and audio, which is a good thing, since that version was very much appreciated.
The menu system is also sharp and has smooth animations, while the main graphics of the game have a slight grainy aspect, to keep it a bit old school. In the game the propulsion is automatic, so you only have to worry about the elevation of the character. You just tap on the screen and Barry accelerates his jetpack. It’s all about the reflexes, apparently. You also get powerups, costumers, jetpacks and other items to collect. For many other unlockables and a cool game, get your download from here.
