Jetpack Joyride | Fun, Timeless Classic

Jetpack Joyride is a game that is difficult to put down once you start playing. It’s nothing short of pure fun, taking the minimalist side-scrolling experience of the 80s and 90s gaming and turning that into something that you can spend a good part of your day on, with lots of incentive for replay.

Gameplay

Here’s the synopsis: you are Barry, the protagonist who breaks into a top-secret lab and steals a couple of jetpacks. The objective is to travel as far as possible in the laboratory in side-scrolling fashion while trying to avoid obstacles, lasers, missiles and zappers, and also collecting coins and spin tokens. Spin tokens, in particular, are important because they provide players with freebies like a head start, extra propulsion, or a revival at the place of death. If you hit a rainbow box, you can commandeer a vehicle (such as the - Strong Arm machine) which lasts as long as you are not taken out by an obstacle.

While the game uses simplicity as a nicety with its single action button, you’ll never feel short of content here. The great thing about the game despite its repetitive gameplay is the fact that you can never tell where the next missile or laser beam will come from.

Visuals

The visuals are cartoony yet quite elaborate. There’s a whole variety of jetpacks each with different effects for good measure. The game is played from a 2D side-scrolling perspective, but this doesn’t mean you won’t be enthralled with all the action going on. The background art constantly changes as you play, so there’s no shortage of scenery. Though the graphics are not over-the-top, this seems by design and actually works for the game.

Controls

The good part about the game is its controls, which is made up of one simple action button. You can only control the movement of the jetpack vertically, but forward movement is completely automatic. The different types of jetpacks have varying sensitivities, so it becomes more about strategy and intuitive understanding of how to work the controls rather than just tapping once on your screen to move your jetpack up or release it. Screen sensitivity might also affect your overall enjoyment.

Good

Jetpack Joyride is an exhilarating game which you can spend hours on. The unpredictable nature of this game means you can never really know where danger lurks. It keeps you on the edge of your seat especially as you progress to the next levels. The variety of jetpacks which all have a simple control system but have different flying mechanics also gives the game its huge replay value. If you are looking for fun, this should be your go-to game.
