Jinx finds himself marooned on a mysterious planet, and players must help guide  his way through an exotic and dangerous environment. The simple, intuitive tilt  and swipe gameplay is perfect for gamers of all ages to explore and adventure  through five fantastic stages.

“The tales of the mischievous Jinx as he jetpacks his way back to the ship and  out of trouble are sure to resonate with gamers of all ages.” said Paul Gray,  CMO Bubble Gum Interactive “The team has crafted the game using the  easy-to-play, hard-to-master philosophy and we can’t wait to see what gamers  around the world think of Jetpack Jinx.”

Along the way, players avoid obstacles including creatures and traps while  collecting power gems to keep soaring skywards. Jinx’s natural luck means he’s  able to scoop up special power ups too including Rocket Boosters, Magic Time,  Super Sidekicks and Mega Mouth!

This will allow future games to be  developed using a single codebase for Android, iOS and Windows devices, at  speeds approaching the speed of light! ” said Phil Mason, CEO Bubble Gum  Interactive.
