The lights are on
Halfbrick Chief Creative Officer Luke Muscat hosted a GDC session today about the iOS updating process, and it coincided with the announcement of Jetpack Joyride’s biggest update yet. During the session, he mentioned that it’s much harder to update Halfbrick games like Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja than it is to release more content for level-based games like Angry Birds and Cut the Rope. Despite the difficulty, the 1.3 update for Jetpack Joyride will be releasing this April.New to the in-game store is a gadgets section featuring three bonuses for our hero Barry Steakfries. Air Barrys are special sneakers that allow the player to leap quickly over obstacles, and Free Ride grants you with a vehicle from the very beginning of a run. The description of the third, Ezy-Dodge Missiles, is less clear: “If you’re going to play a game of chicken with a missile, make sure it’s an Ezy-Dodge!”. Perhaps it makes incoming missiles slower or easier to avoid?
You can catch a sneak peek of the Air Barrys in the teaser trailer below.

Been waiting for a cool update
I play this game all the time and never get bored! Even when i fail constantly.
Like the techno remix, just not sure about "Air Barrys"
NOOO!!! I thought I was out but they will pull right back in.
Awesome, I have this on my iPhone, and will be anticipating the new release.
iPhone games killing me xD
This is one of the best games on iOS for sure.
Air Barrys... I love it! haha

A quality free game is rare, and a quality free game without ads is rarer. They are spoiling us.
I am so addicted to this, the update will be grate.
