Jetpack Joyride

Hi there! Alexey Menshikov of Beatshapers and I are happy that one of the biggest names in mobile gaming – Jetpack Joyride — is coming to PSN in North America this week for $3.99. With over 35 million downloads around the world so far, millions more can now suit up as Barry Steakfries and join in the high-flying phenomenon.

Down on his luck as a struggling gramophone salesman, Barry comes across the “secret” laboratory of Legitimate Research, a corporation dedicated to developing crazy new technologies. Seizing the chance to become a hero, Barry begins his ride after commandeering a jetpack and making good his escape. That’s where you’ll jump in and guide his adventure with accessible one-button gameplay.
