Jetpack Joyride kind of came out of nowhere for me! The only thing you have to do for this entire game is use one thumb. Sounds way too simple, right? The game gets challenging, but in a good way. Also, it seems as though you might get bored quite fast with repetitive game play, but that's strangely not the case. It may be due to the constantly updating goals and upgrades you can purchase with the coins you collect. At $0.99, there's no way you won't find this game of value. One of my favorites of the year!
Cost: $0.99 // App Store Link: Jetpack Joyride
