Halfbrick is a developer best known for their work on Fruit Ninja for iOS devices, but it is their other major project, Jetpack Joyride, that will be occupying the spotlight this week with Update 1.3. In the latest upgrade to the highly successful, free application, players can purchase X-Ray Specs or 15 other gadgets from the Stash to supplement their experience with the title; these gadgets can be used in any number of combinations to help users in their endless pursuit for coins.
A list detailing all of the new gadgets is as follows below:
Sector 1: Research and Development
> Air Barrys (3,500 Coins) – Leap gracefully over obstacles with these designer
> Nerd Repellent (2,000 Coins) – The patent-pending formula is so potent that the
whole laboratory had to be abandoned.

traveling a few extra meters.
> Sector 2: Fringe Science
> Gravity Belt (5,000 Coins) – Make the ground come at you a lot faster than usual.

functional. Now you can look inside vehicle pickups and other places you’re not
supposed to see.

into high-value Gems. For some reason it only works on coins minted in 1985.

> Ezy-Dodge Missiles (5,500 Coins) – If you’re going to play a game of chicken with
a missile, make sure it’s an Ezy-Dodge!
> Magnetic Tokens (4,500 Coins) – Every token is fitted with a super-strong magnet.
They are easier to collect, but will probably wipe your credit card.
> Flying Pig (6000 Coins) – This highly-unstable coin transporter was designed by a
scientist with a particular fondness for physical comedy.
> Sector 5: Testing Zone
> Free Ride (5,000 Coins) – Stop off at the motor pool before smashing through the
laboratory wall. Why didn’t Barry think of this earlier?
> Coin Magnet (6,000 Coins) – Once you get used to the feeling of being endlessly
pelted with coins you will start to wonder how you ever lived without it.
> Lucky Last (5500 Coins) – Your final spin token is forged from fortunium, the
world’s luckiest element.”
