bill-swift - April 26, 2012

If, for some reason, you haven't chosen to pick up Jetpack Joyride...well you're just crazy. Your craziness doesn't even validate a witty response of any sort. The very fact that you haven't chosen to pick up the adventures of jetpack-wielding Barry Steakfries from 'Fruit Ninja' developer Half Brick drains any creativity I may have had walking into this article.

With that aside, let's get down to it...

Like most iPhone games, Jetpack Joyride has it's share of updates that included bug fixes along with a few little extras to keep fans involved but Update 1.3 is looking to change all that.

Update 1.3 will be released April 26...for FREE! It will contain a wide variety of new goodies for joyriding players to enjoy such as the X-Ray Specs that allow Barry to see which vehicles are in the mystery vehicle upgrades throughout his runs. But it doesn't stop there...

Sector 1: Research and Development

Air Barrys (3,500 Coins) – Leap gracefully over obstacles with these designer sneakers.
Nerd Repellent (2,000 Coins) – The patent-pending formula is so potent that the whole laboratory had to be abandoned.
Insta-Ball (2000 Coins) – Bounce off the floor instead of going splat. Great for traveling a few extra meters.

Sector 2: Fringe Science

Gravity Belt (5,000 Coins) – Make the ground come at you a lot faster than usual. Be sure to bend your knees when you land.
Missile Jammer (5000 Coins) – Replaces the missile guidance program with pictures of kittens downloaded from the internet. Only works if the kittens are particularly cute.
Token Gift (5000 Coins) – What do you give someone who has everything? A free final spin token, of course!

Sector 3: Pseudoscience Action Group

Freeze-O-Matic (3,000 Coins) – There's no better way to cool down after a hard run than being snap-frozen in a solid block of ice. It also helps you slide a few extra meters.
X-Ray Specs (4500 Coins) – This high-tech eye wear is both fashionable and functional. Now you can look inside vehicle pickups and other places you're not supposed to see.
Gemology (6,500 Coins) – A special Blingification technique that converts coins into high-value Gems. For some reason it only works on coins minted in 1985.

Sector 4: Futureologist Lounge

Ezy-Dodge Missiles (5,500 Coins) – If you're going to play a game of chicken with a missile, make sure it's an Ezy-Dodge!
Magnetic Tokens (4,500 Coins) – Every token is fitted with a super-strong magnet. They are easier to collect, but will probably wipe your credit card.
Flying Pig (6000 Coins) – This highly-unstable coin transporter was designed by a scientist with a particular fondness for physical comedy.

Sector 5: Testing Zone

Free Ride (5,000 Coins) – Stop off at the motor pool before smashing through the laboratory wall. Why didn't Barry think of this earlier?
Coin Magnet (6,000 Coins) – Once you get used to the feeling of being endlessly pelted with coins you will start to wonder how you ever lived without it.
Lucky Last (5500 Coins) – Your final spin token is forged from fortunium, the world's luckiest element.

Convinced yet? Ya, that's what I thought. Your welcome for expanding your gaming horizons once again. I'll take any and all thanks in the form of undeserved praise through my Facebook page.
