Jetpack Joyride

Halfbrick the company that made Monster Dash and Fruit Ninja are at it again with their new game Jetpack. Back in February I talked to the guys at Halfbrick and they gave me a sneak peak and a little insight on this game. The idea for this game comes from a weapon in the game Monster Dash. The weapon is a jetpack that shoots bullets killing everything underneath it. They had such great feedback about how much fun using that weapon was, that they decided to make a game based around it.

You can play this game with one finger, really and it's still a blast. The idea of the game is to see how far you can survive. This part of the gameplay is much like Monster Dash in that the character is constantly moving forward and you have to fly over or under things. There are scientist you have to get by, laser beams that you have to miss, missiles shot at you and much more. What makes this game nice is there is enough different things in the game to keep it from getting repetitive. Also there are challenges in the game like run 500m without collecting any coins or collect so many spinning coins. Also you will find these little grey boxes in the game that are power-up suits. These range from a metal bird, flying dragon or a frog looking thing.

The game is $.99 and well worth it. If you haven't tried Monster Dash or other Halfbrick games I would highly recommend them as well. Halfbrick does a really nice job of making games that work well for iOS platforms.
