Remedy Rush is a bit of a departure from Whitacker Trebella’s other mobile games. But it’s still an accomplished and entertaining twist on the endless runner that shows the dev just gets mobile.
You’re in control of an antidote flowing through an abstract representation of the human body, and everything is controlled with a few taps, swipes, and presses.
The aim of the game is basically to survive. And while you’re surviving you need to kill the bacteria and diseases that are polluting your host’s body.
There are cells to destroy as well, but essentially if anything in the course isn’t white, it’s almost certainly going to try and kill you in one way or another.
Tap the screen and you’ll move upwards. Swipe left, right, or down and you’ll head in that direction. Press on the screen and you’ll use one of your health boosts, which protect you from the attentions of the germs.
Boop into a red cell and it’ll set itself to explode. The squares around the cell that are going to be affected by the explosion are highlighted. If you’re in one of those when it goes you’ll die.
A second boop will blow up the cell, but you’ll want to make sure that you’re not in the highlighted squares or you’ll explode. You can start chains with the explosions and your health power too.
And you’ll unlock new characters as you play, which add their own twist to proceedings. They might give you extra boosts, change the look of the level, or change a number of other parameters.Full of pills
The whole thing is a lot of fun. You’re rolling through the levels, trying your best to combo together moves to get as a high a score as possible. And you’ll want to keep going, finding out new things as you go.
Remedy Rush is an impressive addition to the arcade genre, and you’re going to have a blast of a time discovering the interesting bits and pieces that it throws at you.
