‘Jetpack Joyride’ Blasts Onto Facebook

One of the most popular mobile games is coming to a Facebook profile near you…yours! Playing as the endearing Barry Steakfries, players navigate this jetpack-wearing hero through an endless gauntlet of obstacles, including projectiles, bubbles and rainbows! Microtransactions and achievements allow players to customize Barry with assorted gadgets, like coin magnets, bombs and even a Golden Piggy jetpack. Players will also be able to compete with friends for high score bragging rights. Best of all, players can immortalize their successes with in-game screenshots posted directly onto their profiles!

“With Jetpack Joyride‘s success on the iOS platform, it only made sense for us to bring Barry and his mischievousness to the entire Facebook community,” said Phil Larsen, chief marketing officer at Halfbrick. “The active and casual nature of Facebook gaming allows us to do even more with the beloved franchise and focus on the game’s addictive competitive elements and endless replayability.”
