Jet-Skate Jo-Jo

Jet-Skate Jo-Jo is a rollicking rocket-propelled ride, featuring loops and hoops and thrills and spills! Step right up and get your monkey action here! A quick pull of the pop-gun cannon is all it takes to get Jo-Jo rolling, then hit the jets to send our little monkey friend rocketing down the track. Jo-Jo goes bananas for …. bananas! And OH MY STARS! Collect them too!

We made the preview version of Jet-Skate Jo-Jo from scratch in only 9 days for the Unity3D “Flash in a Flash” game creation contest. It’s missing a few things like sound and high scores and you might find a bug or two, but we plan to do a whole lot more with the game after the contest judging is complete. We hope you enjoy it!

Play Jet-Skate Jo-Jo

We’ve had so much positive feedback from everyone who has played the game so far that we’re planning on brining it to the iPhone and iPod Touch sometime in early 2012! But you don’t have to wait for the iPhone version because Jet-Skate Jo-Jo is currently playable as a preview right here on our website!
