Jetpack Joyride's Update Out Now

Halfbrick Studios has announced that Jetpack Joyride's 1.3 update is here, adding a host of new gadgets for Barry, including X-ray specs, coin magnets, and more.

The following items are now available for purchase in your in-game stash. You can have two of these gadgets activate at any time. If you're a fan of the game, take a moment to check them all out. If you haven't played it yet, enjoy the following list of seemingly random words.

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. 
Jetpack Joyride is available on iOS devices for the appealing price of $0.
