How to play Jetpack Jump on PC (3 Easy Steps):
Take to the Skies
Going by the name, you may have guessed correctly that Jetpack Jump will send you flying to the skies at some point. What you do not know is that this game combines the love of sports with the thrill of flying. You assume the role of a cubed character whose goal is to do an Olympic-style long jump. The only difference is that you will not be landing on a sandpit. Instead, you will jump over it and then proceed to use a jetpack to launch yourself into the air and fly far away.
Time Your Jumps for Perfect Results
In Jetpack Jump, the gameplay involves tapping your screen one, two, three times to send your little cubed athlete soaring high. It seems easy enough except it is not. Timing is everything in this game. You just might land flat on your face if you launch a second too soon or late.
Any jumping round starts with your character running toward a Start line, which consists of a red line in between 2 white ones. You have to wait until your character just steps on the red line to tap the screen. Do this right and the word “Perfect” will flash across the screen. If your timing is wrong, the only words you will see are “Great”, “Ok”, or “Bad”. For the next two jumps, a huge white circle and smaller yellow one appear on the ground while you are in the air and gradually converge as you descend. To hit a perfect launch, you must wait until the precise moment when circles collapse into each other and become one and then tap your screen.
Getting a perfect compliment on all 3 jumps is the secret to clocking the longest distances. So if you want to make it far in the game, use the first easy levels to perfect your timing.
Upgrade to Achieve Longer Distances
Getting a good score in Jetpack Jump requires you to land as far as possible from the starting point. However, you can only go so far if you are working with the same tools. This is why the game demands you keep upgrading your character. On each round, the game records the distance jumped in meters. Your score is then rounded up and awarded as coins at the end of the round. For example, if you clock 801.6m in your jump, you will earn 802 coins. With these coins, you can increase your jump height or pump extra boost power into your jetpack. The more advanced your character is, the further you will be able to jump.
Coins can also be deposited into an Offline Earnings account. This is not essential though as it only allows you to play longer while offline.
Tips and Tricks for Playing Jetpack Jump on PC
- Use all your Jetpack Fuel at once
Your jetpack comes to life right after the third jump. When you see it, press and hold the screen until the words OUT OF FUEL appear. Using your fuel all at once will have a more powerful propelling effect than using it bit by bit or waiting until you are midway into the jump.
- Watch out for Free Level Upgrades
You do not always have to play every level in the game. At times, a video icon pops up along with a ‘FREE’ notification on the spot where upgrade prices normally appear. Watching the video will automatically propel you to the next level.
Unfortunately, this only happens when you play while connected to the internet. So, you will have to put up with constant advertisement videos to be able to get this offer.
- Double High Scores
Another essential goal in this game is to earn your coins through hard work. At the end of rounds, you are given the offer to double or even triple your earnings by simply watching an ad. Go for these offers, especially if you have scored high during a jump.
- Keep Topping your Best Distance
More than allowing you to advance further in the game, hitting new bests in distance coverage comes with a few more advantages. For one, you earn more coins, which allow you to shape your character into the best jetpack jumper. Another bonus is that you get to unlock a hat (plus a bonus 100 coins) for every new best you make. These hats have no impact on your jumps in but certainly, make you look cool. The best advantage though is that you get to fly over and discover new environments as you make longer jumps. If you jump just high and far enough, you will even find yourself flying into the clouds.
