Jetpack Joyride Gets Huge Update This Week

The insanely-popular iOS game Jetpack Joyride is getting its biggest dose of new content ever this Thursday.

Developer Halfbrick Studios has announced update 1.3, adding 15 new items to the in-game stash. The biggest is the X-Ray Specs, allowing players to finally see what’s inside a vehicle pickup before they hit it. There is a catch: you’ll need to make your way through five of the game’s sectors in order to unlock all the new items, and, as usual, they’ll cost you some in-game coin.

Here’s a complete list of what you’ll get in the update:

Sector 1: Research and Development
Air Barrys (3,500 Coins) – Leap gracefully over obstacles with these designer sneakers.
Nerd Repellent (2,000 Coins) – The patent-pending formula is so potent that the whole laboratory had to be abandoned.
Insta-Ball (2000 Coins) – Bounce off the floor instead of going splat. Great for traveling a few extra meters.

Sector 2: Fringe Science
Gravity Belt (5,000 Coins) – Make the ground come at you a lot faster than usual. Be sure to bend your knees when you land.
Missile Jammer (5000 Coins) – Replaces the missile guidance program with pictures of kittens downloaded from the internet.
Token Gift (5000 Coins) – What do you give someone who has everything? A free final spin token, of course!

Sector 3: Pseudoscience Action Group
Freeze-O-Matic (3,000 Coins) – Freezes Barry in a solid block of ice to help slide a few extra meters.
X-Ray Specs (4500 Coins) – Look inside vehicle pickups and other places you’re not supposed to see.
Gemology (6,500 Coins) – Converts coins into high-value Gems. For some reason it only works on coins minted in 1985.

Sector 4: Futureologist Lounge
Ezy-Dodge Missiles (5,500 Coins) – If you’re going to play a game of chicken with a missile, make sure it’s an Ezy-Dodge!
Magnetic Tokens (4,500 Coins) – Every token is fitted with a super-strong magnet, making them easier to collect.
Flying Pig (6000 Coins) – This highly-unstable coin transporter was designed by a scientist with a particular fondness for physical comedy.

Sector 5: Testing Zone
Free Ride (5,000 Coins) – Stop off at the motor pool before smashing through the laboratory wall.
Coin Magnet (6,000 Coins) – Get used to the feeling of being endlessly pelted with coins.
Lucky Last (5500 Coins) – Your final spin token is forged from fortunium, the world’s luckiest element.
