"These achievements and gadgets bring an all-new layer of gameplay and customization that will provide our fans with a unique experience every time they fire up the game."

Gadgets are available for purchase in the Stash, giving more options for players stockpiling those hard-earned coins! Players can also mix and match any two gadgets to suit their own game and goals. The first three announced gadgets include:
Air Barrys - Leap gracefully over obstacles with these designer sneakers.
Ezy-Dodge Missiles - If you're going to play a game of chicken with a missile, make sure it's an Ezy-Dodge!
Free Ride - Stop off at the motor pool before smashing through the laboratory wall. Why didn't Barry think of this earlier?
