Jetpack Joyride speeds to Hill Valley with new Back to the Future update

The popular side-scrolling endless runner game Jetpack Joyride just got an update that adds a way for players to drive 88 miles an hour and go back to Hill Valley. Yep, the update introduces levels, vehicles and more from the classic Back to the Future movie trilogy:

Here's what you can expect:

  • NEW EVENT & BACKGROUND - Welcome to Hill Valley 2015! Get as far as you can in the time allocated in our all-new Back to the Future update. Add five seconds to your time when you successfully collect a Flux Capacitor and lose ten seconds when you collide with an obstacle. It's our best event yet!
  • NEW COSTUMES - Bust out your favourite life preserver, hide the plutonium, and get ready for the big dance with three iconic costume sets from Back to the Future. Every Flux Capacitor you collect brings you one step closer to unlocking the Marty, Doc and Biff outfits.
  • NEW VEHICLES - Fasten your seatbelt because the greatest vehicle of all-time has now arrived: the DeLorean Time Machine. If our calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious… stuff! Prefer something a bit more modern? Don't be a bojo – try out the hoverboard too. Please fly safely!
  • AWESOME NEW JETPACK - Are you ready to rock and roll? Strap on the new Amped Up Jetpack, crank it to 11, and hit the high notes in style with this brand new addition to the jetpack arsenal. Wild guitar solo? That's heavy!
