Jetpack Joyride for the iPhone is a highly addictive side scrolling game. It features an intuitive one-touch playstyle with enjoyable game physics. You control the character Barry through a crazy secret laboratory of evil scientists and randomly scattered lethal laser beams. The object of the game is to travel the most distance possible.
The addictive part of the game comes from the genius ‘mini-missions.’ The gameplay is intuitive and fun enough, but the replay value lies in the ever changing mini missions. Missions such as ‘travel 500 meters without touching the ground’ or ‘collect 3 bonus tokens’ or ‘reach 2000 meters total,’ make for spontaneous challenges that add a depth of gameplay. You always have three missions to complete, and once you complete one, it is instantly replaced with a new one. This unexpectedness and constant challenge make you always want to ‘play just one more game.’
