    0. Introduction								[000]
    ==============================================================================
    
    Hello guys, I’m back again with the other game that Halfbrick Studios has 
    made, if you haven’t played any of Halfbrick games please do as they make 
    awesome games. This guide helps you out with the things you need to know about 
    the game as well as give you some tips to be a better player.

    II. Controls								[002]
    ==============================================================================
    
    For Barry Steakfries;
    
    Tap anywhere to start up jetpack
    Release to turn off jet pack
    
    Vehicle Controls;
    
    ===========
    LIL STOMPER
    ===========
    
    - Tap to jump [depending on how hard you tap the stomper will either 
    jump high or low]
    - After jumping tap again to activate thrusters
    
    ===========
    PROFIT BIRD
    ===========
    
    - Tap to use it wings [tap rapidly to kepp in the air]
    
    ============
    GRAVITY SUIT
    ============
    
    - Tap to change the gravity of Barry
    
    =======================
    CRAZY FREAKY TELEPORTER
    =======================
    
    - Tap to teleport which direction you want to go in
    
    ==========
    MR.CUDDLES
    ==========
    
    - Tap to go down and breathe fire, release to go back up
    
    ==========
    BAD AS HOG
    ==========
    
    - Tap to jump [Depends on how hard you tap for jump]
    
    ==============================================================================
    III. Object of Game							[003]
    ==============================================================================
    
    The object of the game is to go as far you can without dying while collecting 
    coins and spin tokens to unlock stuff from the stash.
    
    ==============================================================================
    IV. Power-ups/Collectibles 						[004]
    ==============================================================================
    
    So there are 6 power-ups and 2 collectibles
    
    The 6 power-ups are vehicles so you will get an extra hit before reverting 
    back to the jetpack
    
    ===========
    LIL STOMPER
    ===========
    
    - The stomper is a machine that is probably the best for collecting anything 
    and is the most agile of the group.
    
    ===========
    PROFIT BIRD
    ===========
    
    - Like the stomper but you have to keep flapping its wings to keep in the air 
    which can be annoying when a lot of things start happening really fast
    
    ============
    GRAVITY SUIT
    ============
    
    - This is guy is actually from the other fun game ‘Gravity Guy’ but no this is 
    a bad power up as you must constantly change the gravity to collect things as 
    well as dodge the obstacles.  
    
    =======================
    CRAZY FREAKY TELEPORTER
    =======================
    
    - This is probably the best one for distance as you can pretty much dodge 
    everything thrown at you the exception of teleporting into something.
     
    ==========
    MR.CUDDLES
    ==========
    
    - A dragon that breathes fire no way, really this is fun to use but is hard to 
    dodge tight spots as it is the biggest one here
    
    ==========
    BAD AS HOG
    ==========
    
    - This baby is from the game ‘Monster Dash’ [another great game that HB 
    Studios have made, so go check it out] This is the only that must stay on the 
    ground as it is a motorcycle but can get a lot of air when it jumps.
    
    The 2 collectibles are coins and spin tokens; the coins are used to buy stuff 
    from the stash and spin tokens are used for the final spin when you die.
    
    ==============================================================================
    V. Final Spin								[005]
    ==============================================================================
    
    When you die and you have at least 1 spin token you will get to play some 
    slots which will let get a prize if you get all 3 or you can cash them in 
    for 50 coins a piece.
    
    So there are 10 things that you can get form the final spin;
    
    COINS: These come in 100, 500, 1000 they are depicted as 1 coin = 100, 3 
    coins = 500 and a stack of coins = 1000
    
    DOUBLE COINS: If you get these that means the next game you play will make 
    all the coins 2 instead of 1 making this useful for coin collection missions.
    
    HEART: If you get this means you get another life and will respawn wherever 
    you died.
    
    3X Tokens: This means you get 3 more tries at the final spin to win more prizes
    
    HEAD START: This is a blue wave which will give you a 750M start at the 
    beginning of your next game
    
    ATOM BLAST: This is the mother of all bombs, after you die a nuke will drop on 
    you and will blast a long distance increasing you distance record
    
    BOMB BLAST: This is a bomb that will blast a fair amount of distance but is no 
    ATOM BOMB.
    
    DYNAMITE BLAST: A stick a dynamite that will blast you a short distance
    
    ==============================================================================
    VI. Missions								[006]
    ==============================================================================
    
    So in this game there are missions that help you get more coins everytime you 
    complete a certain amount of missions, they are broken down into 3 categories

    jetpacks as well as vehicle and item upgrades to help you out in the game.
    
    ==============
    CLOTHING [CLO]
    ==============
    
    Barry’s Head/Barry’s Suit = Default
    
    Fragger Helmet/Fragger Fatigues = 3500/2500
    
    Nerd Glasses/Lab Coat = 4500/3000
    
    Green Mohawk/Punk Outfit = 5000/4000

    Golden Piggy Bank = 50000
    
    ==============
    VEHICLES [VEH]
    ==============
    
    Magnet = 5000 Coins
    
    This upgrade will attract coins that are close enough to the vehicle making 
    it easier for you to collect
    
    Golden = 10000 Coins
    
    Nothing really special about this upgrade than it only pimps out your ride. 
    I would only get it for the achievement or if I’m really bored. 
    
    ==============
    UTILITIES [UTL
    ==============
    
    These are items that will help out either in the beginning of the game or 
    after you die;
    
    HEAD START [1000]: This will give you a 750m start at the beginning of the 
    game [You can only use it up to 70M before you cant use it]
    
    SUPER HEAD START [3000]: This gives double of what the head start does so you 
    get 1500M instead of 750M [You can only use it up to 70M before you cant use 
    it]
    
    FINAL BLAST [4000]: This will give you a nice distance boost when you die
    
    QUICK REVIVE [10000]: This will revive you die but use it carefully as you 
    only get one and they do cost a lot of cash
    
    HEAD START 3x [5000]: Same thing except you get 5 of them
    
    SUPER HEAD START 5x [10000]: Same thing except you get 5 of them
