Jetpack Joyride Heading To Playstation®Network

An award-winning mobile game flying to PlayStation®Stores worldwide this week

November 20th, Brisbane, Australia and Kiev, Ukraine Halfbrick Studios and Beatshapers are proudly to announce that one of the biggest names in mobile gaming – Jetpack Joyride coming to PlayStation®Network! With over 35 million downloads around the world so far, millions more can now suit up as Barry Steakfries and join in the high-flying phenomenon.

Down on his luck as a struggling gramophone salesman, Barry comes across the "secret" laboratory of Legitimate Research, a corporation dedicated to developing crazy new technologies. Seizing the chance to become a hero, Barry begins his ride after commandeering a jetpack and making good his escape, where the player jumps in and guides his adventure with accessible one-button gameplay.
Along the way, players must avoid lasers, missiles and electro zappers, all the while grabbing coins and trying out even more ridiculous vehicles – Lil' Stomper, Profit Bird and the robot dragon himself, Mr. Cuddles!

Supporting the action is a robust Stash system, where everyone can track their progress, upgrade their gear and buy new gadgets for Barry. Grab one of many jetpacks including the classic Machine Gun Jetpack or the colorful Rainbow, suit up in a vast wardrobe of unique costumes and make sure Barry's best friend Flash comes along for the ride!
