Major Jetpack Joyride Update Flying Onto the App Store In April

By , on March 6, 2012

Australian developers Halfbrick have announced that version 1.3 of Jetpack Joyride will arrive next month, bringing equipable gadgets to the free-to-play title.

Speaking to Eurogamer, Halfbrick's CMO Phil Larsen explained that the gadget system gives players the ability to change up how they play.

People play for a few reasons - collecting coins, completing missions and getting high scores. For coins, we've got gadgets for that, like the coin magnet. For completing missions, we've got stuff like the Nerd Repellent that gets rid of scientists.

And for scores, we've got the Instaball and the Freeze-o-Matic that turns you to ice and lets you slide further when you die. All of these thing stack so you can potentially get some massive scores.

Apparently, there will be a total of fifteen gadgets available when the update goes live, all of which you'll be able to purchase with in-game currency from The Stash: Jetpack Joyride's store.

You probably already know this, but Jetpack Joyride's a pretty fantastic game - in fact, we awarded it a perfect 5/5 in our review, so this is one update we're eagerly awaiting.

Jetpack Joyride is available to download from the App Store right now, and it won't cost you a penny.

Best clear your schedule, though, because this could be your new addiction.
