Halbrick's Jetpack Joyride Gets Updated With New Vehicles and Playable Character

By , on September 13, 2011

Australian developer Halfbrick's rather excellent Jetpack Joyride has been updated with some wacky new extras, as well as some almost mandatory bug fixes and tweaks.

The foul-mouthed Barry Steakfries can now pilot two brand-new vehicles, including the ironically named Mr. Cuddles (a giant robot dragon), and the fruit jetpack.

The latter is a nod to Halfbrick's smash hit slice-'em-up Fruit Ninja, and sprays the ground with fruit and juice as you speed past hazards.

Barry is also joined by new character Honest Phil: an 'awesome Australian dude' based on Halfbrick's real-life CMO Phil Larsen.

You can grab this 5/5 title from the App Store right now for just 99c.
