Jetpack Joyride, an iOS hit , after much request has finally made its way to Android. Halfbrick Studios, the creators of Fruit Ninja, bring the same stylised graphics from Age of Zombies to an exciting action packed flying adventure.
The game follows the story of Barry Steakfries, who breaks into a secret lab to free experimental jetpacks from evil scientists, causing copious amount of havoc in doing so. In the beginning, players are given the standard Machine Gun Jetpack, but each game coins are collected which can be exchanged for a ton of other gear and outfits from the in-game store. In addition to this, players are encouraged to continue their jetpack adventures with competitive online leaderboards and achievements.
Unfortunately there is currently no tablet/HD version, so the delightful cartoon graphics may seem a little low-res on larger displays. However the fast paced addictive action will keep you coming back for more.
Rather strangely, Jetpack Joyride has only been released on the Amazon Appstore, meaning that the game is only accessible to US gamers. For those of you in the US, downloading the game will also give you $1 free Amazon MP3 store credit! While a Play Store version will undoubtedly be released shortly, if you’re really desperate to play now, you can Google for an apk.
