The most recent Geometry Dash replace has been the most important shortly, together with two new autos. The Swing, and the Jetpack. The Swing is used within the new degree, Dash, however the Jetpack has but to see any official use, even within the different new ranges that got here with the replace. What is that this car used for?
The Jetpack in Geometry Dash
The Jetpack could be very noticeable within the character creation menu, sitting on the very finish of the road of autos. As of penning this, there are solely 5 Jetpacks in whole, and after enjoying Dash and finishing what’s out there of The Tower, I observed how I had but to make use of it in any respect.
The Jetpack is definitely a car made with the brand new platforming mode in thoughts, and it primarily works just like the Ship does. As a substitute of merely reusing the ship sprites, Robtop determined to make a brand new car to have a greater divide to performance, as in platformer mode, the Ship must work very in another way.
This does make sense when you think about that to unlock two of the Jetpack designs, you must gather a sure variety of Moons, which is what you’ll acquire after beating platformer ranges, very like stars for normal ranges. Additionally, Jetpack 2 is earned by beating stage four of The Tower, which is one other indicator.
It’s price noting, nevertheless, that user-created ranges have used the Jetpack in regular ranges, so it isn’t solely tied to platformer ranges.
The best way to use the Jetpack in Geometry Dash
Utilizing the Jetpack is tremendous easy in Geometry Dash. When utilizing it in a typical degree, upon you urgent and holding, the Jetpack instantly shoots upwards, and upon letting go, it’ll fall again down. Being solely barely bigger than the Dice, while nonetheless sustaining the cubic form, it acts as a way more responsive ship.
With the ship, you have to account for the slight dip and power required for it to descend and ascend. The Jetpack doesn’t have this downside, because it adjustments path on a whim.
In Platforming ranges, you’ll primarily get to manoeuvre your character on two axes now, and you’ll modify how far up your ascend or how low you descend. The leap button now turns into the increase button, as that’s easy methods to function the engines of the Jetpack. The left and proper buttons will function the identical.
This presents quite a lot of flexibility when Platforming, and I can’t wait to play extra with it!
Now that you already know all in regards to the Jetpack, why don’t you make sure you know all about the other vehicle, the Swing?
