Halfbrick explodes with Machine Gun Jetpack dev diary


5:00 AM on 08.03.2011



Not a group to rest on their Fruit Ninja laurels, Brisbane-based studio Halfbrick is launching a series of developer diaries leading up to their next game, Machine Gun Jetpack. The game is set to release for iOS and sees the return of the hilariously-named Barry Steakfries, the hero of Halfbrick's previous titles: Age Of Zombies and Monster Dash.

As you can see in the first of the developer diaries, Machine Gun Jetpack is a madcap and explosive action game that apparently serves as a prequel to Monster Dash. Now before watching the first episode here, please make sure you keep an eye out for the most awesome aspect: Shark Head Jetpack. If Halfbrick are going for broke with this game, that item name just may have done it.
