Adult Swim's 'Jetpack Jackass' (game)

by John Lindstedt

Jetpack Jackass is a simple but addictive Flash game in the spirit of such mobile gaming favorites as Papi Jump and Doodle Jump. You play as Sam, the titular jackass, as you try to maneuver your way through the sky on using the awesome jetpack you invented to prove your girlfriend she was wrong.

The controls are basic and easy to use: guide Sam with the cursor, trying to get him to land and bounce off platforms and explosive items until you reach the top (or your new personal best). Just play it. It’s…. satisfying. The background music is “You’re the Best”, from The Karate Kid, just in case you needed one more reason to play.
