Accumulating more than 95,000 five star ratings in the U.S. App Store alone, it would appear Halfbrick Studios must be doing something right with Jetpack Joyride. In their continued efforts to appease fans, Halfbrick has announced another content update that will be arriving in the App Store next month.

In a reasonable way to keep things from becoming too stale, previous updates have contained new jetpacks, new suits, and other customization items to The Stash store. Not only does this give players a way to personalize the game a bit, but it also provides something to work for. On occasion, these content expansions include large game changes, such as the Missions systems of Jetpack Joyride v1.2.

The upcoming update, which will be available in April, seems to be a mixture of the two types of content expansions. The three new gadgets in v1.3 are some of those more unique “stash” items that go beyond aesthetics.

  • Air Barrys – Leap gracefully over obstacles with these designer sneakers.
  • Ezy-Dodge Missiles – If you’re going to play a game of chicken with a missile, make sure it’s an Ezy-Dodge!
  • Free Ride – Stop off at the motor pool before smashing through the laboratory wall. Why didn’t Barry think of this earlier?

Jetpack Joyride is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 3.1.3 or later, and available in the App Store as a free download.
