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, [[NotActuallyCosmeticAward they slightly increase the value of collected coins]]. There's even a gold and platinum version of the Machinegun Jetpack!
* BloodlessCarnage: Being landed on by a vehicle or blasted by a shotgun results in a blood-free dismemberment for scientists.
* CanineCompanion[=/=]RobotBuddy: Flash the Robot Dog.
* ChromeChampion: Robo-Barry.
* CoolBike: The Bad [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar As]] Hog.
* CriticalExistenceFailure: The Strong Arm Machine. If it gets hit by one or two missiles, it will look damaged, but it still remains fully functional and it won't lose speed. If it gets hit by a third missile however, it all goes down.
* 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" for getting the Profit Bird twice in one run.
** The achievement for knocking over 1000 scientists is called "[[SelfDemonstrating/GLaDOS For Science]]," and its icon resembles [[{{VideoGame/Portal}} the logo for Aperture Science]].
** 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 TARDIS-like skin for the Crazy Freaking Teleporter.
** Version 1.7.3's description for Magnet Man says [[Music/InsaneClownPosse Magnets: how do they work?]]
* SleevesAreForWimps: Barry.
** Averted with Barry's stitched up suit, and double subverted in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWJ0CK3GOtE official music video]], where he needs some new shirt sleeves, but doesn't need them in the end, anyways. 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.
