..At the demo, I was more impressed with the amount of side content as opposed to the explosions, which to be frank, is a little out of character for me. As you play, you’ll collect coins that you can then, in turn, spend on upgrades to your jetpack. You can also pick up bigger coins that, at the end of a single play, give you the opportunity to use a massive slot machine. If you’re lucky, you’ll earn rewards like double coins on your next play or even a Continue that puts you back in the game right where Barry fell. This is good, game-expanding stuff that adds a little more to the “just one more time” play..

Halfbrick!!

i really hope it's a deeper game than monster dash. Not doubting it was great, I just like depth, even though I Rarely finish them.

Looks like Monster Dash on Roids. They should have made a vertical scroller instead though


I have beta tested 57 games,

So basically Monster Dash except on jet packs? It looks alright.

Pretty excited for this. Monster Dash was one of my favs so this will be an Insta-Buy for me. The gameplay looks better in this game though simply by the fact that it has obstacles to dodge.

insta-buy for me as well

love all halfbrick games that I own, (which is only three, but still) so more of Barry Steakfries can only be a good thing

EDIT: also, having the game based on one of the coolest weapons ever doesn't hurt

(can't wait)
