Halfbrick has revealed that Jetpack Joyride, the free PlayStation Network title available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, has notched up over one million downloads.

News comes following the release of an update for the PS Vita version, which adds Twitters support and various performance upgrades, including customisation options.

"It's been another incredible month for Jetpack Joyride," said Halfbrick marketing boss, Phil Larsen. "Player support has been sensational, proving without a doubt that Barry Steakfries is a perfect match for the PS3 and Vita!"

"We want to extend a massive thanks to the dedicated team at Big Ant for bringing Jetpack Joyride to Sony's passionate and thriving online community. Our amazing fans continue to exceed expectations, paving the way for more exciting releases further down the line."

Jetpack Joyride stars Barry Steakfries, who previously cropped up in fellow Halfbrick stable mates Age of Zombies and Monster Dash. In this game, our unshaven hero finds himself down on his luck until he commandeers a wealth of technology from Legitimate Research and shoots for the skies.
