To this day, I still don’t know how I managed to sink around 12 hours into Jetpack Joyride about a week after its release. The allure of all those golden coins and numerous add-ons just makes this game so difficult to ignore. If you share my awesome burden, you’ll be happy to know Jetpack Joyride is getting a big update this April. This update will up Barry’s arsenal with gadgets that can be equipped before every run.

There are going to be 15 gadgets in all. One gadget is so neat, Halfbrick gave it its own wub wub teaser trailer (embedded below). Air Barrys are shoes Barry can wear that makes him leap over those darn lasers instead of gradually hovering over them. There’s also going to be X-Ray Specs that helps Barry see what’s in those vehicle boxes. Halfbrick is comparing these gadgets to the perks made popular by the Call of Duty games. Two gadgets can be equipped at one time.

Jetpack Joyride is free by the way, so go get it before you forget.
