Halfbrick has announced that the Facebook version of its excellent Jetpack Joyride is now in public beta. If you’re not familiar with the game, it’s one of the most successful and addictive iOS games on the market. The simple gameplay is brilliant for killing five minutes, but it’s so well executed that you could easily spend hours playing the game. I can’t praise the iPad version enough.
As for the Facebook version, it’s good but still needs work. Of course it’s still in beta, so I don’t expect it to be as polished. Playing the game on my MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2011) through Chrome was fun, but choppy. Hopefully Halfbrick will be able to smooth things out so that the Facebook version can run similarly to the iOS version.
Please, please check out this excellent game when you have a moment. I’d love hear about your experiences with Jetpack Joyride for Facebook.
