Jetpack Joyride Cheats & Tips: 5 Hints to Get a High Score

Looking to go beyond your highest score in Jetpack Joyride? We’ll be happy to help you on that front, but before we do that, let’s give you a brief backgrounder. This game was developed by Halfbrick Studios, and like many others in the casual genre, it’s available for both Android and iOS devices. In the game your mission is to wreak havoc with the coolest jetpacks ever made while avoiding lasers and other obstacles. There’s really not much to say aside from that, but since you probably know enough by now, we shall now take you to some useful Jetpack Joyride cheats and tips to boost your high score.

1. Make Use Of Head Starts

In most cases, we would advise you to use the head starts you’ve got to get off to a flying start. Buying head starts isn’t really that expensive, as it’ll cost you 3,000 coins to get five of them. But you may not want to go for the super head start, which reviewers believe isn’t worth it – while standard head starts allow you to fly quicker for the first 750 meters, the super head start will zoom you through the first 1,500 meters.

2. Tap Gently For Ground Vehicles

There are two vehicles we’re thinking of for this tip, and they are the Bad Ass Hog and the Lil’ Stomper. Both vehicles have a high decline rate, especially when you launch them into the air. That would behoove you to tap gently when using these vehicles – tapping too hard and too fast may end up with catastrophic results.

3. Use The Power-Ups To Your Advantage

While this game is considered a casual title, there are some power-ups which you can use to your advantage. Now not all power-ups are useful, and there are some, such as the boost rings, which have been described as being useless or unhelpful. But most do have some use to players, including the Coin Magnet that will help you gather more coins. The Gravity Belt is another useful gadget you may want to try out for yourself.

4. Follow The Missions

The missions in Jetpack Joyride aren’t really too difficult, and some of them can be achieved naturally during the course of a game. So if you’re in doubt as to how you should proceed, go ahead and take on the missions if you’re looking for another way to earn a lot of coins.

5. Play Without Music

Sure, Jetpack Joyride’s musical score may be quirky, and it may be appealing to some players. But there are others who can’t help but get annoyed at the score’s quirkiness, annoyed to the point that the music is throwing them off their focus. So with that in mind, it’s a good idea to play without music. Still, it’s important that you keep the sound on, as that will help you spot obstacles before they arrive, including the aforementioned laser beams.
