Jetpack Joyride has just received what is said to be its biggest update yet. The latest update to the popular endless running game introduces a couple of new vehicles and a number of new costumes. One of the new vehicles is the holiday-themed Sleigh of Awesome, which the scientists at Legitimate Research built by taking the blueprint of Santa's sleigh and enhancing it with rocket-powered robotic reindeer. Ho ho ho! The Sleigh of Awesome may be unlocked via a $4.99 in-app purchase and is available for a limited time only. The other new vehicle is the Strong Arm Machine, or S.A.M. for short:
Barry’s hijacked a giant mechanical robot unlike anything you’ve ever seen! Collect three tokens to activate S.A.M. but be prepared for a fight. You’ll be up against a huge wave of menacing missiles!Activate S.A.M five days in a row to unlock the new costumes, which total 16 and include Jacket of Doom, Snowman Outfit, and Fighter Pilot. But if you'd prefer not to complete the five consecutive challenges, you're free to unlock each costume via in-app purchase. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later, the new version of Jetpack Joyride is available now in the App Store for free. The game received its previous major update early last August, thereby gaining support for quick revives and rolling inventory tweaks. Jetpack Joyride is created by Halfbrick Studios, the same developer behind Fruit Ninja, Fish Out of Water, and the upcoming Colossatron.
