Jetpack Joyride

Machine Gun Jetpack is now renamed Jetpack Joyride

8:00 PM on 08.22.2011 // Bob Muir

While Mojang attempts to hold on to the name of Scrolls, fellow indie developer Halfbrick is changing the name of their upcoming iOS game Machine Gun Jetpack. From now on, the game will be called Jetpack Joyride.

As explained in their video, Halfbrick realized that while the machine gun jetpack is still in the game, there are so many other types of jetpacks included that the name was a misnomer. Rainbows, lasers, bubbles, there are a lot more options than just a machine gun jetpack, including vehicles. Plus, alliteration is awesome!

Jetpack Joyride will be released for iPhone and iPad on September 1, 2011, for 99 cents.

THE VERDICT

Jetpack Joyride - Reviewed by Nick Chester
Entrancing - It's like magic, guys. Time disappears when this game and I are together, and I never want it to end. I'm not sure if this is a love that will last forever, but if it is, you'll get no complaints from me.
