This Thursday, September 1st, players around the world will be able to experience Halfbrick's biggest release since their legendary mobile game Fruit Ninja stormed the App Store charts this year, and our sources tell us that Jetpack Joyride will skyrocket players into the latest adventure featuring that lovable and mischievous hero Barry Steakfries, who captured hearts in the previous Halfbrick mobile games Age of Zombies and Monster Dash .
The game wizards over at Australia's Halfbrick Studios have created an animated trailer that sets up the story of the game and showcases its game play for us -- and we have embedded that below for your convenience, because we love you!
Barry Steakfries Moment of Discovery and Destiny!
Down on his luck, Barry discovers the ultimate opportunity to turn his boring life into one of adventure, heroics, and beach chairs as, inside a "secret" evil laboratory filled with jetpacks and mysterious obstacles he discovers the Jetpack of his Dreams -- and immediately commandeers the fun-fueled technology for himself, and literally shoots for the skies in a shower of bullets, rainbows, bubbles and more!
It's a Bird! It's a Plane! No, It's Barry Steakfries!
With simple one-touch controls, players will operate outrageous vehicles, avoid dangerous traps throughout the lab and shoot for the highest scores on worldwide leaderboards as they join their friends in discovering who the best Jetpack Pilot is!
The contents keep on coming in Jetpack Joyride with upgrades, coins, unlockables, spin tokens, missions, items and more -- all controlled with one-touch input, indicative of Halfbrick's commitment to offering the best mobile gameplay in the business.
Jetpack Joyride will be released worldwide on the App Store on September 1st as a universal download, optimized for both the iPhone and the iPad.
