Mad Rush is a Racing/Jump game of sorts. Imagine Doodle Jump, but instead of jumping off of platforms, you’re jetpacking to a finish line, while racing against an opponent. Racing with a jetpack definitely gives the player a rush.
There are three game modes. Die-Hard mode has the player gather fuel and boost by eating bugs while avoiding obstacles. Slalom mode has the player eats bugs as well and the obstacles create an outline leading to a marker, much like in skiing. Nitro mode gives only arrows as a way to boost while still having to avoid obstacles.
There are a total of 10 different worlds, each world having its own opponent you must race against. The player can earn three stars in each game mode of every world. These stars earn skill points that can be used to upgrade speed, burst, magnet and shield. Each type of skill can be upgraded four times.
The game uses tilt controls and even though we’re not a fan of this type of gameplay, it’s very responsive for this game. We would like to see slide control added at a later time. Also, the developer will be adding multiplayer at a later time. We can’t wait to get some online Mad Rush games going on.
Overall this is a fun an addictive game. It’s very easy to pick up and play. You’ll find yourself challenged by trying to gather all three stars on every level and once multiplayer comes out, the game will have infinite replay value. If you’re a fan of jumping games, jump on this one.
