Originally called Machine Gun Jetpack, Halfbrick Studio's new fast-paced side-scroller for iOS called Jetpack Joyride has expanded. It now allows players to use a variety of vehicles, in addition to six other less machine gun-centric jetpacks. Game Informer's Ben Reeves caught up with lead programmer Richard McKinney on the PAX show floor to talk about the creation of the new game and the release philosophy of Halfbrick Studios. The creators of Fruit Ninja are set to unleash their latest creation on the iOS marketplace this Thursday.
