Halfbrick's marketing wizard and president of Halfbrick Marketing School For The Gifted And Golden-Tongued, Phil Larsen, promised us that more updates to Jetpack Joyride [$.99] were on the way. Again, the magnificent man leaves no room for disappointment. In the latest version of the game, the studio has added two new jetpacks, more costumes, and score-tracking features that'll definitely inspire some ire amongst friends if you rock at joy riding.

To get specific, this update adds the Chrome Plated Afterburner and the Golden Piggy Pack as new additions to the jetpack line-up. Also, you can now dress as "Sensei" from the Fruit Ninja [$0.99 HDLite] series, a silver robot, or even a king in his robes. More importantly, you can now post your scores directly to Twitter and Facebook and enjoy Doodle Jump-style markers in-game that reveal where your friends have croaked. That's actually quite a huge addition, eh?

Jetpack Joyride is still stupid-fun for us. I can't explain it, either. It just has that one, almost indescribable "one more play" appeal. We can't stop. Seriously. Help us.

    What helped me to stop playing is how boring it gets unless you have the 750m boost. Like all these on-rails platformers, as you get better it's only fun once the speed ramps up. Having to farm a few levels of coin just to get one level off to the right start is not cool.

      I feel you....for me the faster the better; it keeps me more engaged.

      Personally, I'd like it if the speed was really fast and you'd get abilities to slow down at certain points, etc....

        Yes, I believe a solution is to add modes like in fruit ninja.

        I would actually like a mode where the speed stays constant. I lose interest in the game when it speeds up. I want long haul runs with maybe more intricate arrangement of obstacles to dodge but also have enough time to think about how I'm going dodge them.

    At first I didn't see the appeal to this game. Thought I wasted a $1. Then I said "I can beat that score" and played again, then I got double coins on my next run and played again. Great game!

      I find myself killing myself in order to grab just one more spin token. The final spin bit at the end makes the game!

    Content update was great, but only held my interest for a short while.  Can't wait for the update for varying mission structure or additional missions or badges to come about.  

    I think I've had my fun with it for now...
