Jetpack Jinx is a unique game that’s definitely going to appeal to a wide audience because of its easy mechanics yet challenging gameplay. It’s a game that you can easily pick up and start hoping that you’ll only spend a few minutes of game time but end up playing longer. Gameplay is gravity based where you’ll have to jump up and collect all sorts of power-ups.
Jetpack Jinx is developed by BubbleGum Interactive and is free to download over at Google Play. You will need a device that’s running on at least Android 2.2 as well as a storage space of 31 MB.
The story revolves around Jinx who for some reason has crash landed on a mysterious planet. Jinx needs to get back to his craft before Lord Shadowbot, who is his boss, finds out he is gone.
You start at the bottom of the screen and with the help of your jet pack make your way above. Your jet pack however only has a limited power so you will need to collect various jewels as you move up so you won’t run out of power. Collecting the jewels is not easy though since there are various obstacles on the way to the top such as enemies and hazards. If you don’t collect enough jewels on time and your jetpack runs out of power you go back to the bottom.
You progress through the levels as soon as you reach a certain distance traveled. The first level can be accomplished if you travel 1,000M and so on for the next levels. While the first few levels are quite easy the higher levels are quite challenging. The game is quite hard to beat if you don’t use power-ups which you can purchase using coins you earn in the game or real world cash via the in-app purchase feature.
