As 2011 draws to a close our debate for Game of the Year is heating up. And one of the games we'll be seriously considering as the victor, Jetpack Joyride [$.99], is now free on the App Store. Jetpack Joyride is fantastically good; we're big fans of its irreverent style and its simple, yet stunningly engaging flying action. That's why we're considering it, and why we're endorsing you giving it a free download right now.

If you're a TouchArcade merit badge holder, you're more than aware that we posted about the game once again last week. Halfbrick has continued its commitment to updating the flyer consistently and often. The latest update sees the introduction of seasonal stuff, like Christmas tree-themed jetpacks and festive clothing. Get that now, if you haven't.

    I wish this game didn’t tell me how many hours I spent in it! It’s simplistic but addictive in ways I have not figured out...

    I have spent 1 day, 12 hours, 33 minutes, and 9 seconds playing this game.
    I do not regret any of that.
