Fruit Ninja developer Halfbrick Studios has announced its next project - an iPhone and iPad game named Machine Gun Jetpack.

It's a fast-paced survival platformer and the latest title to feature lovably stubbly Halfbrick hero Barry Steakfries.

Players control Machine Gun Jetpack with just one touch. It activates a machine gun strapped to Steakfries' back, causing him to hover and allowing him to navigate the game's many obstacles.

Eurogamer's mobile game guru Kristan Reed doled out a 5/10 for Halfbrick's Fruit Ninja but a more recent 6/10 for previous Steakfries outing Age of Zombies. XBLA platformer Raskulls fared better still, winning high praise and a 9/10.

Machine Gun Jetpack will land on the App Store later this year. In the meantime, Halfbrick's Kinect Arcade port of Fruit Ninja launches on XBLA next Wednesday.

Halfbrick introduce Machine Gun Jetpack.
