‘Jetpack Joyride 2’ debuts as an Apple Arcade exclusive

It’s lasted more than a decade, but there’s finally a sequel Jetpack Joyride – if not for everyone. Halfbrick Studios released Jetpack Joyride 2 as Apple Arcade exclusively for iPad, iPhone, Mac and Apple TV. Sorry Android fans. The Endless Flyer is centered around a more “story driven” gameplay with a new character to play (Betty Beefpies) as well as fresh mechanics and more detailed graphics. In that light, Halfbrick effectively pulls the game into the modern age.

The original title came to Apple Arcade last year as Jetpack Joyride+, which keeps the core experience with no in-app purchases required (or possible). The title first appeared in 2011 and helped define the endless runner category alongside classics like Canabalt and temple run. Halfbrick’s signature game has racked up more than 500 million downloads over the past few years.

YY2 probably doesn’t justify the $50 a year ($5 a month) for Apple Arcade alone, and it represents another dose of nostalgia for the all-you-can-play service. However, it could be a stronger argument for a subscription. You can play simple blasts from the past alongside newer games that make the most of modern Apple devices.
