You Have No Excuse Not to Download Jetpack Joyride for Your iOS Device

Because it’s free. You heard me: Halfbrick is giving away downloads of Jetpack Joyride in the Mac App Store. The side-scroller is reminiscent of those obstacle-laden hovercar stages from Battletoads and Donkey Kong Country Returns‘ barrel rocket stages but it’s quite a bit more frantic and there’s already been plenty of free DLC available for it.

John thought it was a bargain for 99 cents. And now the price tag has been slashed by 100 percent. Word to the wise: Halfbrick hasn’t said how long this game will cost you nothing, so get on it before it’s too late.

The game stars Barry Steakfries, a working man who breaks into a jetpack development lab and, as the title of the game might imply, goes on a bit of a joyride. Your main objective is to avoid obstacles that might put an end to Barry’s adventure such as missiles and electrified barriers.
