Jetpack Jinx blasts off for adventure in a new game for Apple iOS

Sydney, Australia – 11th December 2012 – Award-winning independent games

studio Bubble Gum Interactive has officially  launched Jetpack Jinx for the Apple iOS platform . This maddeningly fun mobile game sees players step into the role of Jinx, a mischievous minion in the service of the dastardly Lord Shadowbot.

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.

“Jinx is proving to be an indie hit on the Google Play market, having scored an impressive 4.9 out of 5 aggregate score across the Android community. We’re extremely excited to take the title to iOS.” said Paul Gray, CMO Bubble Gum Interactive “As an action-packed arcade title for gamers of all ages, we think Jetpack Jinx captures the easy-to-play, fun-to-master play style that mobile gamers like.”

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! Demonstrating Bubble Gum Interactive’s commitment to family-friendly gaming, Jetpack Jinx recently scored 5 out of 5 and was  awarded the Famigo APProved badge.

As players power through the game to achieve dizzying heights of success they’ll get to unlock special power moves. Via in-app purchasing, players can up the ante and buy extra coins for power moves and other upgrades. Continuing Bubble Gum’s commitment and reputation for delivering family-friendly products and services, Jetpack Jinx allows parents to determine whether to allow kids to use in-app purchases or to disable this functionality using a simple pin code locking feature built into the game.

“Almost as exciting as seeing Jinx come alive on iPhones, iPads and iPods around the world, is the great work te Bubble Gum team have done to create our mobile development framework and family-friendly features. This framework lets us rapidly build out titles for new platforms and allowed us to launch the iOS version less than a month after the Android version.” said Phil Mason, CEO Bubble Gum Interactive.
