Join Barry as he breaks in to a secret laboratory to commandeer the experimental jetpacks from the clutches of science evildoers. After lift-off, simply touch the screen to ascend and release to descend, raining bullets, bubbles, rainbows and lasers downwards as you fly towards higher and higher scores!

You'll start off with the legendary Machine Gun Jetpack to scatter the evil scientists, but throughout each game you'll collect coins and complete missions to earn cash and buy new gear in The Stash! Pick your favorite jetpack, snazzy outfit and stock up on items then get back out there for more action!

Keen reflexes are your best weapon to avoid the obstacles in your path. These include lasers, electricity fields and even guided missiles, but thankfully this is a top secret lab - there will be even more goodies to pick up and help Barry along the way. Stay out of harm and you'll reach massive scores, unlock Achievements and beat your friends on the online leaderboards!

Get a boost of speed and power using the Lil' Stomper, Profit Bird and Crazy Freaking Teleporter, just a selection of the vehicles pickups available - all playable with one touch controls. You can even splash out and upgrade the vehicles with coin magnets or shiny gold plating for that bonus style factor!

Stay alive, get funky and lose yourself in Jetpack Joyride. There's so much to see and do, all the time in the world and more than enough jetpacks! As always, Barry Steakfries will provide!

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.
