Well, this is some nice music... [[DynamicEntry HOLY CRAP]] [[ThereWasADoor SOMEBODY JUST BLASTED THROUGH THE WALL AND STOLE THE JETPACK THAT WAS LYING THERE!]]

''Jetpack Joyride'' is an interesting and addicting little game by Creator/HalfbrickStudios for the iOS and free for download on PlayStation Network and Windows 8 that stars Barry Steakfries. [[EndlessRunningGame The goal is to travel as far as you can.]]

At least, it was initially.

After several updates, the game now has coins, [[AndYourRewardIsClothes outfits, and different jetpacks,]] various upgrades and gadgets, and even achievements.

----

!! This game provides examples of:

* AllThereInTheManual: There are evil scientists who want to take over the world and Barry breaks into their secret laboratory to use their own inventions against them.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Barry Steakfries.
* AwesomeYetImpractical: Pretty much all of the vehicles, especially the Crazy Freaking Teleporter. Unless, of course, you get the coin magnets.
** The golden piggybank jetpack is stated in the description to be the most wasteful thing ever made. It's propelled by ''money''.
* {{Badass}}: Barry Steakfries himself.
* BadassBeard: The Knight Helmet and Medieval Armour give Barry one.
* BlingOfWar: The gold vehicle upgrades make the vehicles look pretty and shiny. Also, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotCosmetic they slightly increase the value of collected coins]]. There's even a gold and platinum version of the Machinegun Jetpack!
* CanineCompanion[=/=]RobotBuddy: Flash the Robot Dog.
* ChromeChampion: Robo-Barry.
* CoolBike: The Bad [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar As]] Hog.
* DemBones: One clothing set is simply Barry's skeleton.
* {{Dissimile}}: The flavor text for the Golden Gravity Suit.
-->"Just like a gold bar, except it's a [[GravityMaster gravity-manipulating]] [[PoweredArmor cyber suit.]]"
* EndlessRunningGame: Subverted. At 30,000 meters, there is an unavoidable laser wall. This is why the highest score is 30,000.
** However, this can be bypassed with Strong Arm Machine. This means, the person who topped the leaderboard is welovecereal[[note]]On Game Center[[/note]], with a high score of 37,616![[note]]Also on Game Center[[/note]] Ever since that was achieved, no other person could top that off.
* EverythingsBetterWithCows: When equipped with the [[Film/{{Twister}} Twister]] Jetpack.
* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows: The [[CaptainObvious Rainbow Jetpack]], natch. It is harmless and doesn't scare the scientists.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Mr. Cuddles the Giant Fire-breathing Robot Dragon.
* FrickinLaserBeams
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: When the scientists run away from you, some will be unfortunate enough to run into a zapper and knock themselves out.
* FunWithAcronyms: The largest vehicle in the game is the '''S'''trong '''A'''rm '''M'''achine.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Back from Fruit Ninja, the achievement "Tee Hee Two" -- Collect '''69''' coins.
** The Bad As Hog; it was originally named Bad Ass Hog. The previous game in the series does use the name Badass Hog.
** Because the music video can be watched in the game, it has Barry and the Tailor having Champagne. So yeah, that also counts.
** The flavor text for the Zombie T-Rex exclaims "Holy balls!".
* HeroicMime: Barry.
* HotBlooded
* HumongousMecha: The S.A.M. is of the variety with tank treads instead of legs.
* {{Jerkass}}: Barry can be seen as this, although the scientists are evil.
* JokeItem: The Nerd Repellent. It makes all the scientists disappear, leaving cobwebs and tumbleweeds in their place, and offers no direct gameplay benefits. However, [[LethalJokeItem it can come in handy if you have a mission that requires you to not harm scientists]]. There is also a mission that requires you to buy and use the Nerd Repellent.
* MoreDakka: The Machine Gun Jetpack is propelled by recoil alone.
* PermaStubble: Barry.
* PowerupMount: Barry has seven to choose from.
** [[CoolBike The Bad As Hog.]]
** [[TeleportersAndTransporters The Crazy Freaking Teleporter.]]
** [[MiniMecha Lil']] [[GroundPound Stomper.]]
** [[ExtremeOmnivore Profit Bird.]]
** [[GravityMaster Gravity Suit.]]
** [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Mr. Cuddles.]]
** [[RoaringRapids Wave Rider]]
** [[HumongousMecha The]] [[GameBreaker S.A.M.]] (At least, once per day).
* RuleOfCool
* RuleOfFun
* ShoutOut: Several of the purchasable items and their flavor text deliver these.
** [[Franchise/DragonBall The Powered Up Hair and the Super Suit.]] The FlavorText for the first is "We're not sure what the PowerLevel of this hair is. It's probably a lot," and [[MemeticMutation it even costs]] [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale 9001 coins.]]
*** Best when riding Mr. Cuddles.
** Barry's undercover female disguise, "[[Film/MrsDoubtfire Mrs. Doubtfries.]]"
** One head/body pair makes a Barry-Franchise/{{Terminator}} (not to mention riding the Bad As Hog makes you blast nearby scientists with a shotgun).
** The Sensei's Threads and the accompanying headband serve as a reference to ''VideoGame/FruitNinja,'' also by Halfbrick.
-->"Now take good care of this suit. It took forever to get the fruit stains out, and no way are we cleaning it again."
** There's even a suit that makes Barry dressed like [[Franchise/TheMatrix Neo.]]
** The Heartbreak Hair and the Jailhouse Jacket obviously alludes to Music/ElvisPresley.
** The [[Film/{{Twister}} Twister Jetpack]] catches cows that occasionally spawn in the lab when equipped.
-->"Rated at F3 on the Fujita Scale, this jetpack is capable of [[Film/TheWizardOfOz relocating an entire house over the rainbow.]]"
** The [[ExtremeOmnivore Profit Bird]] sure looks like the red [[VideoGame/AngryBirds Angry Bird.]] Even better, it spews out money from the back when the wings flap, referencing [[CashCowFranchise how much money Angry Birds has made]]. It also looks like the main protagonists of ''Tiny Wings'', another bestselling [=iOS=] game featuring birds (the Profit Bird Flash uses is blue, making it look even more like the ''Tiny Wings'' bird).
*** And it even makes sounds similar to the ones the Birds make.
*** There's even an achievement called "Angry Wings".
** One of the achievement portraits just happens to have [[{{VideoGame/Portal}} the logo for Aperture Science]] acting as a border.
** The Gravity Suit references a game called ''Gravity Guy.''
** The achievement for buying two jetpacks is called [[Film/JamesBond James Who?]]
** The [[Series/DoctorWho Barrybox]], a skin for the Crazy Freaking Teleporter.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Barry.
** Averted with Barry's stitched up suit, and partially in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWJ0CK3GOtE official music video]], as he needs some new shirt sleeves! Watching the music video in the game rewards you with that suit. If you die while wearing it, the sleeves fly off.
* TemptingFate: There's a sign by the selected jetpack that states quite clearly, "Do Not Steal." [[CaptainObvious Guess how every single Jetpack Joyride run starts.]]
* [[ThereWasADoor There Was A Wall]]: See above.
* UniversalDriversLicense: Barry takes this to [[UpToEleven utterly ridiculous extremes.]] He can competently pilot a jetpack, a CoolBike, a [[MiniMecha mechanical super stomper,]] [[GravityMaster a gravity-manipulating]] [[PoweredArmor cyber suit,]] [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot a flying, firebreathing, robotic hybrid dragon]], [[TeleportSpam a teleporter]], and [[ExtremeOmnivore a coin-eating robot bird.]]
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Barry can become one of these when equipped with the makeup and purple dress. See ShoutOut.
