It’s time to hit the road and reach Anarchy City before everyone else, for some weird reason. This game will give you both racing and action, but does it guarantee fun?

At first glance Road Rush resembles games like Micro Machines and Tiny Cars. There is a top perspective in the game so there is nothing really new there. The graphics are colourful and works well.

The player’s main task is to control a vehicle steering clear of cars heading in the same direction. Not a very innovative concept but it works perfectly all right, and it has been since the 80s.

There are three different vehicles in the full game. They have their own characteristics and behave differently. However I think the numbers of cars are too limited. In future versions the developers should extend the number of vehicles that you can play.

To your right you have a number of different meters to help you keep track of things. The most important one is the fuel meter; the cars are anything but fuel-efficient so you will loose fuel fast. During the stage you will encounter fuel power ups, if you miss one chances are that you later on run empty.

A number of other power ups is available including armour, big wheels so that you can crush cars that are in your way and a siren that clears the road ahead. Overall there are six different kinds of bonuses that you can get.

At first I though this games goes way too fast and it was really hard not to smash into things. However you tend to learn the tricks after a while and since the tracks are straight with some straight corners it isn’t that hard.

It’s sad that when turning the car it doesn’t show much. Sure it moves sideways but not in the manner that real cars does. Instead it feels a bit like driving a large shopping cart at a tremendous speed.

The sounds and music score is pretty good; it lifts the game a bit. Too bad that there are few tracks, after a while you get a bit tired of them.

Road Rush is fun to play but too limited to have any real value. In the future more cars, better handling and more music should be added. If it’s done correctly White Elephant might be on to something here.
