Rail Rush 1.0.9 Review

Survive on a minecart track while tilting and swiping to avoid any obstacles.

Compared to other smartphone operating systems, Android devices have fewer well-known games available. Rail Rush provides an entertaining game experience, although its simple gameplay may leave more advanced gamers looking for more.

Since Rail Rush is available through the Google Play store, installation was seamless. The game started up fairly quickly, too. The menu design was what one would expect from a free smartphone game, with large buttons and simple graphics. When starting the program for the first time, the user is guided through the gameplay with a simple tutorial, which explains all of the movements. The object is to keep your minecart on a track while dodging obstacles. This requires the user to jump, duck, and switch tracks, among other movements. The user must survive, while picking up gold and other gems. The gameplay is fast-paced and requires attention from the user. While fun, it is easy to see that some more experienced gamers would grow tired of the playing style after a short time. This game is available for free with advertising displayed in the menus.

While easy, Rail Rush provides a fun gaming experience that would appeal to casual smartphone gamers. More experienced gamers may find the gameplay a bit too easy.
