Jetpack Joyride is a crazy and highly dynamic runner game for Android that lets you break into a secret laboratory to defeat the evil scientists and get all jetpacks. You will become Barry who has the simplest jetpack and unlimited ammo that he showers down as he flies, killing the scientists and dodging many various obstacles.
The game was released by Halfbrick, the legendary studio that developed Fruit Ninja. Dynamic game play, fancy 8-bit graphics and soundtrack, and simple controls is what makes Jetpack Joyride distinctive from other runners.
Key features of Jetpack Joyride for Android:
Addictive game play;
Funny and dynamic 8-bit graphics and soundtrack;
Lots of boosts and upgrade options.
You begin playing by storming into the laboratory. At first you see the character running, but he soars using the jetpack every time you tap the screen and descends if you are not doing anything. It looks like Barry’s jetpack is fueled by ammo as he showers hundreds of bullets from up in the air. Mind though that you will need to be really careful because your way will be full of obstacles: rockets flying at you, electricity, and dozens of moving lasers.
And that’s not all. You will need to get as many gold coins as you can to purchase new equipment and clothes for Barry to look even cooler. You start running faster with every second and the number of obstacles almost doubles. However, on the way you will be collecting boosts that will let you ride a motorbike, try out a metal costume, or control the gravity by running on the ceiling. If this is the case, the controls will be a bit different and you’ll be able to crush into one obstacle without dying.
Jetpack Joyride is considered to be one of the best runner games for Android and perhaps the only minor drawback it has are sensitive controls. You will need to get used to it to succeed.
ResumeIt’s a perfect time killer game for those people who want to kill some time and look for something dynamic. The game is distributed for free with no built-in ads.
