How can life be for a broken businessman who got fed up with his crippled sales? Barry Steakfires’s case went a little different after he quit his job.
He got a new glamorous job in a research company doing experimentations on jetpacks. But after realizing that the company’s intentions were set on world domination by using the machines, he couldn’t stay as a sitting duck.
He blasted the lab wall like the Hulk and stole the jetpack. This is the endless running retro-inspired classic game, Jetpack Joyride.
If you want a little more elaboration on game’s story, read on. The game starts from the place where our hero steals the jetpack.
What we have to do is to go as far as we can in that underwater laboratory. In the midst of all this, flipped out scientists are running inside the lab.
So we have to use our jetpack to dodge some pretty wild scientific lasers, rockets and machine stuffs. Collecting in-game coins will help us unlock new jetpacks, boostables, upgrades, and skins.
At certain points of our ride, there will be vehicle and suit power-ups that we can take to gain additional abilities. Anti-gravity suit, Profit Bird and Lil Stomper are a few among them.
The game was released on September 1, 2011 for iOS and the other versions for Windows and Android came late, around mid-2012. And finally the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita version got the freemium title available for download.
