Developer Halfbrick Studios has asked gamers to fasten their seatbelts as the much-awaited Jetpack Joyride 2 is finally set for an Apple Arcade games launch. The sequel to the immensely popular Jetpack Joyride will be exclusively available on the Apple Arcade app.

Let’s dive into the fascinating world of the side-scrolling shooter game, which will be available for downloads from this month itself.

The Joyride Named Jetpack

Jetpack Joyride remains one of the greatest hits in the entire history of iOS games. The platform game has won several prestigious nominations since its release – VGX Award for Best Handheld/Mobile Game, Game Developers Choice Award for Best Handheld/Mobile Game. It has enjoyed a widespread popularity across different platforms like Android, iOS, PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3. Published by Halfbrick Studios, Big Ant Studios and Beatshapers, it went on to win critical acclaim globally. The original Jetpack Joyride released in 2011, and even after eleven long years, its craze appears undiminished.

Jetpack Joyride 2: Double the Fun

The second part of the Jetpack game is slated to be released alongside the likes of Amazing Bomberban and the Apple Arcade versions of My Talking Tom and Love You to Bits, on the premium gaming platform. Meanwhile, these two special versions will be part of the ‘App Store Greats’ designed by the Cupertino-headquartered company.

The Jetpack Joyride 2 would be a walk down memory lane for those who have played the original title. It was indeed a joyride, and the looks revealed so far suggest that the sequel is going to be engrossing than ever. There are a lot of similarities too, done most likely to recreate the mood and signature of the iconic Joyride franchise. The gamers will encounter with overlaps in the form of the basic objectives – a) trying to dodge obstacles b) attempting to survive as long as you can c) gathering as much coins as possible.

On the other hand, you will be amazed to find a whole lot of brand-new gameplay features that will make it one of the most sought-after side-scrolling games. From HD graphics & new animations to new mechanics and new playstyles – the Apple Arcade-only game has many aces up its sleeve. Though the most awestriking feature seems to be the room for terrorizing the in-game scientists while navigating their labs. Revolving around the life of the protagonist Barry Steakfries, the shooting game promises to be a “story-driven experience” according to the statement released by its developer Halfbrick.
