Lucky Duck Games has launched a real-time, competitive puzzle game called Jetpack Joyride. Adapted from the mobile game, players join a disgruntled gramophone salesman as he steals jetpack technology from the scientists who would use them for evil.
Players need to escape from the lab using a route that gives them the most points by accomplishing goals and building paths over coins. Players simultaneously grab path tiles and build their flight path through 4 lab tiles. The first person to fly from their lab first ends the round, but finishing first doesn’t mean winning. You have to add your points from your escape path and activate your gadgets to get the real score.
Jetpack Joyride is for 1-4 players ages 8 and up and will play quickly in about 20 minutes played over 3 rounds. Great for a fast paced party game as well as a fun time family game. Jetpack Joyride’s Kickstarter campaign runs until July 31st.
