Spend four hours of your life playing this extremely addicting FREE game!

Overall Score: 4/5

Excellent gameplay is brought down by sub-par presentation (many experience crashing and saving issues). Nevertheless, it’s worth playing Jetpack Joyride since it’s free!

Gameplay: 5/5

Jetpack Joyride is like Gravity Guy 2 (another excellent game) but on steroids. The game’s controls are very similar to a typical Cave game… hold your finger on the screen to move up, and release to let your character fall down to the ground. However, instead of cave walls, obstacles include electroshock barriers, missiles, and lasers. The game also has awesome vehicles you can collect which add plenty of variety to the game. And there are a plentiful amount of upgrades you can purchase for your character.

Presentation: 3/5

The visuals are unfortunately pixelated on high-resolution devices like the Lumia 920. And many users have experienced their saved game data being wiped, or have somehow even got stuck with a negative amount of coins. Nevertheless it’s a free game and still very fun to play.

Lasting Value: 4/5

Completing the entire game (finishing all of the missions) takes about 4 hours. This places the lasting value in the “good” category. There are still plenty of upgrades you can purchase after you’re done, and you can always play through the game again!QRCode
