Six months after its initial debut on iOS, Jetpack Joyride is still receiving some terrific updates. In fact, its latest promises to be “the biggest and most anticipated update” yet. In addition to new achievements and new stats, version 1.3 brings 15 (yes, 15!) new gadgets, including the Gravity Belt, the Freeze-O-Matic, and the Missile Jammer.

Halbrick insists this release is a “game-changer” that allows you to “customize your joyriding experience like never before.” Here’s the complete list of gadgets now available for Barry Steakfries:

AIR BARRYS – Keep running into zappers? Then slip these designer sneakers on and they will help you leap gracefully over obstacles like never before!

NERD REPELLANT – Guaranteed to keep scientists at home sick for the day!

INSTA-BALL – Bounce off the floor instead of going splat. Apart from reducing head-aches, the INSTA-BALL is great for gaining a few extra meters.

GRAVITY BELT – Makes the ground come toward you faster than ever!

MISSILE JAMMER – Replaces the missile guidance program with pictures of kittens… software will only work if the kittens are particularly cute.

TOKEN GIFT – Free final spin token.

FREEZE-O-MATIC – What better way to cool down after a long ride than to be snap frozen in ice. Also good for gaining those precious extra few meters.

X-RAY SPECS – Both fashionable and functional. Great for looking inside things and at things that you are not supposed to see!

GEMOLOGY – Special blingification technique that turns coins into gems!

EZY-DODGE MISSILES – Where have you been all of my life?

MAGNETIC TOKENS – Easy to collect, but prone to wiping nearby electrical devices.

FLYING PIGS – They said it would never happen… turns out FLYING PIGS are more awesome than you imagined!

FREE RIDE – Why Barry never thought to drop into the motor pool to collect a vehicle to start a run before is a mystery!

COIN MAGNET – Like a chick magnet, but doesn’t work on chicks… just coins.

LUCKY LAST – Forged from fortunium, the worlds luckiest element!

As always, Jetpack Joyride is completely free for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, so there’s no excuse not to try this incredibly entertaining game. You can find the latest update in the App Store now.
