On top of that, we have more updates and more cool stuff on the way. It should be a pretty busy month or two for Jetpack fans!


Sweet stuff, thanks for the info. I can't wait 'till this drops.

I'm guessing the sectors = one per a thousand.
Since, my high score is in the 5ks, hope they will already be unlockable for me.

I think sectors may be smaller than 1k, since my best is in the 5ks also, and yet I think Ive seen sector numbers above 5. (You can see the color-coded sector #s and stripes on the walls.) Although they could have changed the sector spacing, of course.

I assume the new coin magnet gadgets does not replace the old separate magnets for each vehiclebut rather is a magnet for when youre NOT in a vehicle.

It sounds like the new gadgets will tend to make the game easier? (Especially certain missions, if theres a gadget that gets rid of scientists, or if the Ezy Dodge missiles avoid you just enough to be easy to near-miss.) But Im OK with that as long as new challenge comes at the same timeand just by reaching new distances now, maybe that challenge will be there! I have pretty much hit a distance wall, and this could be a way to break through that.
