Jetpack Joyride finally available for Android smartphones and tablets

It’s been a long time coming, but one of the most enjoyable “freemium” games for iOS, Jetpack Joyride, is now available on Android. It was released a few weeks ago as a Kindle Fire exclusive, but thankfully for us Canadians that deal has reached its end.

The game runs really well on the latest hardware (I tested it on a Galaxy S III) and looks great on larger screens. It’s a one-touch platformer with a great sense of humour and a lot of cool weapons and gadgets to use. And, unlike many freemium games, Jetpack Joyride never insists on you paying for extra items, and the player doesn’t feel at a disadvantage for it.

Jetpack Joyride is a free download from Google Play.
