Jetpack Joyriders, I've A Feeling We're Not In Kansas Anymore
Barry Steakfries, the intrepid hero of the hit endless running (and flying) game Jetpack Joyride, is at it again. And by "it" I mean the act of acquiring new jetpacks. Jetpack Joyride already has an abundance of cool gadgets for Barry to take advantage of, thanks mainly to a couple of updates pushed to the game last April and May. Lately, though, Jetpack Joyride has been gradually increasing its stash of the titular flying contraptions. Last September, along with iCloud support, a lava background, and a worker costume, a new Blast Off rocket jetpack was added to the game. This time, not one, but two jetpacks are introduced to Jetpack Joyride. These are the DIY jetpack and the twister jetpack.

Costing just 5,000 coins to activate, the DIY jetpack is made possible "thanks to advancements in duct tape and party supply technology." The twister jetpack, on the other hand, is one of the most expensive jetpacks around. Costing ten times more than the DIY jetpack, the twister jetpack is said to be "rated at F3 on the Fujita scale" and "capable of relocating an entire house over the rainbow." Watch out, Dorothy and Toto! These new jetpacks are available in the latest version of Jetpack Joyride, which in turn is available now in the App Store for free. The new version of the game also includes iCloud improvements, iOS 6 orientation adjustments, and general performance upgrades. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
