Halfbrick's much-loved iOS title Jetpack Joyride has reached 350,000 downloads in its first week, proving once again that the studio seems to have a handle on this whole App Store business. Alongside this news of success comes free unlockable content for the $0.99 game.

  • Mr. Cuddles, the robot dragon "vehicle"
  • Fruit jetpack, inspired by Fruit Ninja
  • Honest Phil costume, based on Halfbrick's own Phil Larsen

I'm a firm believer that all games should be eventually updated with dragons, no matter how irrelevant that may be to the source material. Hey, it worked for True Crime.

The runner style game sees you avoiding obstacles and collecting coins through the use of a jetpack that happens to be a freaking chain gun. Seriously, Jetpack Joyride is stupidly addictive and you're a horrible stupid face if you don't even try the game. You jerks.more

Review: Jetpack Joyride

With so many "runner" games on iOS, another one is certainly a hard sell. But there's a reason these games are so popular. It's a simple concept -- a character moves continuously from left to right at an ever-increasing speed...more
