Quick review of Jetpack Joyride 2
I have played Jetpack Joyride for a long time on Facebook; it was one of my favorite games. When I got to know about the sequel of the game. I quickly downloaded it. I played the game for 30-40 minutes and then uninstalled it.
It is no doubt that the gameplay in the sequel has been enhanced from the first game. Barry now gets a gun that shoots when shootable enemies are around. Overall, the gameplay remains pretty much the same, where you accumulate enough points and then fight a boss.
However, the reason for immediately uninstalling is the fact that the game is very limited by In-App purchases. Doing a run in the game now consumes energy that can only be refilled by watching ads or paying money, or waiting. So you get the idea. To be honest, Jetpack Joyride 2 looks like a crash grab.’
