Jetpack Joyride Update Adds 15 Gadgets, Arrives This Thursday
Scientists got you down? Some Nerd Repellent will make short work of those eggheads.
After more than a month of press releases and videos, Halfbrick will finally release update version 1.3 for its immensely entertaining iPhone and iPad title, Jetpack Joyride.
What's so cool about this DLC? How about 15 new gadgets available in the virtual Stash store that dramatically alter the game while giving you an advantage over those pesky scientists? Granted, you'll need thousands of coins to buy all this stuff, but considering how good the game is, you should have no trouble amassing tons of loot.
Here's the full list of items and prices:
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.
