Jetpack Joyride - Back to the Future

Jetpack Joyride - Back to the FutureI had heard of the game Jetpack Joyride, but never gave it a thought at all until the latest update was released, promoting the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future.

The game is a fun and quick little platformer. With its BTTF makeover, the Marty lookalike trades his jetpack in for a guitar like the one in the opening scene of the original film.

It obviously features the two trilogy icons as well — a flying DeLorean and a pink hoverboard.

Backgrounds include the Hill Valley square of 2015, along with other little BTTF items like the time boost token being a flux capacitor.

The update is free, but looks to be a limited time bit that can only be kept long-term by an in-app purchase. It’s fun to play with the BTTF theme, but I’m unlikely to pay for the privilege of playing it past the 30th anniversary promotional period.
