A game for the frazzled globetrotter in all of us.

Jetset is a game about air travel with a satirical twist. It is the first game of its kind, a mobile game for business travelers.

The challenges of today's airport security make business and pleasure travel increasingly difficult. Security is there to make you feel safe and get you to your plane in one piece. However, today's regulations change frequently and are often different from airport to airport. Now, you too can stand in the shoes of a security agent trying to avert terrorism while getting everyone through a checkpoint quickly. This is a game that's just as fun as waiting in line -- and one you can play in line as well.

Even better, when you play in one of the 100 world airports included in the game (from Albuquerque to Waco), you can win custom-made, collectable, digital souvenirs from each one. No longer will you be guilted into buying an overpriced gift for friends and family you leave behind, now you can gift items of sentimental value collected through your real travel plans. Or if you're more of the hoarding type, you can trade in your souvenirs for exclusive Jetset travel accessories.

Key Jetset features:

- Play 100 different airports from around the world and earn unique location-based souvenirs
- Strip search travelers for fun
- Confiscate dangerous travel items like pressurized cheese
- Game automatically selects the airport you are in or near based on available location services*
- Collect and play with souvenirs in your personal snowglobe, or share them with friends on Facebook*
- Facebook gifts you give can be downloaded by your friends into the iPhone/iPod Touch Snowglobe App (sold separately)
- Unlock silver, gold, and platinum souvenirs based on your performance -- just like your favorite airline loyalty program
- Are you a real jet setter? Redeem collections of souvenirs from different airports for exclusive Jetset travel trophies*
- Highscore lists: local, global, and by airport

* Location, Facebook, and redemption features are subject to terms of service

Been watching this one since release, the Flash version is a lot of fun, but the price was a little high.

You play as the security agent and have to pass people through after removing their items.

No problem, I bet you'll like it. ^ ^

It can get annoying when the forbidden items change the second you are about to pass someone through the checkpoint.

Overall, it's a lot of fun though.

I really hope people check this game out. Persuasive Games makes some wonderful games that are not only fun to play but are also quite satyrical.

There are some bad reviews because of how quick the game changes the banned items. The point of the game was to show how ridiculous the TSA is.

They also updated the game with the option to make the changes more forgiving. However some reviews were never updated to reflect that.
