Jetpack Joyride 2 jumps and shoots all over the place on Apple Arcade

We were waiting for him at the turn, here he is arriving in a jetpack at the scheduled time: Jetpack Joyride 2 is now downloadable for Apple Arcade subscribers. Fans of the first part will probably revel in this sequel, which promises to be as crazy as the first, with some welcome new features (revised graphics, boss battles, new vehicles, etc.).

The game takes up the principle of the first part, enriching it with a good dose of shoot’em up with bonus boss fights. All with gameplay as simple as it is addictive: just touch the screen with your finger to make the hero, the intrepid and mischievous Barry Steakfrites, climb in the air with his Jetpack (he won’t be alone in this new adventure ).

Barry now has guns at his disposal and he will know how to use them.
The goal is always to collect as many coins as possible, which will then be used to improve your equipment.
Improving equipment and unlocking gadgets: the two breasts of freemium that Apple Arcade subscribers escape. You just have to play to get it all!

The game is packed with stuff to unlock to upgrade the jetpack. Originally, the Halfbrick studio had bet on freemium but oddly, the title had not gone beyond its first beta released in a handful of countries last year. Apple Arcade having given the game a second chance, we can now enjoy it without those pesky in-app purchases and frankly, it feels good.

Especially that Jetpack Joyride hasn’t lost any of its appeal and is still just as fun. What does not spoil anything is that the graphics have also improved. In short, the arrival of the title is a good surprise in Apple Arcade which should keep you busy all weekend, and probably more.
