The iOS gaming world is being treated to one heck of a game today. Jetpack Joyride is now free in the Apple App Store. In order to get it, you have to go through the official Facebook page for the App Store. We’re not sure how long this offer will last, but believe me when I say Jetpack Joyride is well worth your time.
Jetpack Joyride is a great example of how microtransactions can be used properly. Even though you have to collect coins to unlock different character skins, clothing and jetpacks, Jetpack Joyride does a great job at providing a reasonable amount of coins through each run. In the several hours I spent playing this game, I was never tempted to buy coins with real money. The desire to complete objectives was enough to keep me focused. By the time I stopped playing Jetpack Joyride, I had already completed the game twice. It’s just that good.
The game was also updated recently to include new clothing, jetpacks and social network integration.
