I promise myself that I will not get addicted to a game when I get it and I never keep the promise. However, when it comes to Jetpack Joyride, I do not even regret it because it is worth it. Learn more about this game in my brief but comprehensive review below.
For: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android
Find it on: Google Play, iTunes
Graphics / Sound: 5/5
This game has simple and straightforward 2D graphics that are quite cartoonish, but I personally think it is alright for the genre of the game. From the character to the jetpacks, everything looks fantastic, and the clarity is amazing. The sound is also perfect. I especially love the music that is in the background as you play.
Interface and Controls: 5/ 5
Both the App Store and Google Play app for this game have very user-friendly interfaces. It’s easy to understand, and everything is very well organized for easy customization and use. The controls are rock solid, and they work through the single touch button technique where you touch the button to get Barry up and release to get him down.
Both the Google Android and iOS apps have straightforward gameplay. Your job is to suit up with a collection of bullet-powered jetpacks and test your level of skill as the legendary hero Barry Streakfries. You will also choose your movements to avoid guided missiles, zappers and dodge lasers. In addition to this, you get to earn rewards and battle it out with friends to see who’s boss. This game gives you the chance to do so although the outfits are quite ridiculous in my opinion. Last but not least, there are a number of missions with different challenges you have to complete in this game. Use all your tricks and jetpacks to get as far as possible. It’s loads of fun!
There are a number of in-app purchases for both the Android app and the iOS version to help you update your gaming experience. Mostly you can buy coin packs ranging from $1.99 to $29.99. Moreover, you can get Starter Pack for $0.99, Fistful of coins at $0.99, S.A.M Mystery reward for $1.99 and Sleigh of Awesome for $4.99.
This app has made me neglect my responsibilities a number of times because it is extremely addictive. I start playing it and before I know it, hours have passed. I am certain that anyone who plays this game will get addicted to it. It is simply thrilling.
