iOS Game of the Week: Jetpack Joyride 2 is an Addictive Shooter I Can’t Stop Playing

Describing Jetpack Joyride 2 is an understatement. You play as Barry Steakfries, a man strapped into a jetpack that automatically propels itself forward. You tap and hold to move it up, release to drop it, and fire bullets as you weave in and out of enemies to finish a level.

Halfbrick’s latest game has the same casual compulsiveness as many mobile games of the past: Angry Birds, Threes, Crossy Road, and even the developer’s 2010 mega-hit Fruit Ninja. It’s highly addictive and extremely approachable, full of harmless art, lame jokes, and a just one level up mentality.
