Apple Arcade is continuing to build upon its offerings of classic mobile games. Apple today announced that another popular classic is on its way to the platform. From the developers of Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride will have a “Plus” version released on Apple Arcade soon.
Jetpack Joyride was first released for iOS in 2011 and it quickly rose to the top of the charts. The infinite runner game entails players having to fly in a jetpack inside a laboratory while avoiding missiles and other hurdles. The game offers a ton of customization for players including different maps, a wide variety of jetpacks and other add ons.
‘Jetpack Joyride’ coming to Apple Arcade soon!
Note that Jetpack Joyride will continue to be available on App Store with in-app purchases. However, users with a subscription to Apple Arcade will be able to download ‘Jetpack Joyride+’ on the platform with all additional content unlocked.
Bullet-powered jetpacks! Giant mechanical dragons! Birds that shoot money! From the makers of the global hit game, Fruit Ninja comes this insane, high flying endless runner that will keep you on the edge of your seat! It’s time to join Barry Steakfries and equip the coolest jetpacks, suit up in stylish costumes and ride crazy vehicles in his endless running quest to beat the scientists to the end of the lab.
