Seizing the chance to become a hero, Barry begins his ride after commandeering a jetpack and making his escape, the player jumps in and guides his adventure with accessible one-button gameplay.
Along the way, players must avoid lasers, missiles and electro zappers, all the while grabbing coins and trying out ridiculous vehicles – Lil’ Stomper, Profit Bird and the robot dragon himself, Mr. Cuddles!
Supporting the action is a robust Stash system, where everyone can track their progress, upgrade their gear and buy new gadgets for Barry. Grab one of many jetpacks including the classic Machine Gun or the colorful Rainbow Jetpack, suit up in a vast wardrobe of unique costumes and make sure Barry’s best friend Flash comes along for the ride!
