Summary

A simple yet addictive game. In Smash Rush you barrel down a tunnel avoiding obstacles and collecting points. That’s it, the levels randomize every run so it never feels stale. It’s one of those games that takes up bugger all space and gives you a good little challenge when you have a spare five minutes. Don’t go in looking for crazy depth and you will be fine.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
