Halfbrick has announced its biggest update ever for Jetpack Joyride, the endless runner which sees Barry Steakfries meeting a new pal, the Strong Arm Machine, or S.A.M. for short. S.A.M. is available once per day, and will allow players to block missiles and give, as Halfbrick puts it, “totally boss high-fives.”

The S.A.M. update in Jetpack Joyride allows players to activate the mech by first collecting three flying tokens. He can be activated once per day, and each day the player activates S.A.M., they’ll receive an unspecified reward. On the fifth day, players are given one of 32 costume pieces for Barry.

The developer has released an animated story for the creation of S.A.M., which you can check out below.

This update also introduces players to the Sleigh of Awesome, bringing some holiday cheer to the factory. This is a seasonal item for the Winter holiday season, so players must unlock it during its limited availability. If not, they’ll simply miss out on their chance to own it.

The S.A.M. update, complete with the Sleigh of Awesome, is now available to download in Jetpack Joyride on iOS, and will come soon to Android. The game is available for free on both platforms.
