Fast-paced dodger Storm Rush gets the 'Rush Mode' it needed at long last
Storm Rush has been updated with an entire new game mode. And it's about time, too. How could a game called "Storm Rush" not have a "Rush Mode." Well, now it does.
This means that this fast-paced first-person dodger now has double the number of modes it had previously. Yeah, can you believe it - there was only one game mode?
In this new one, your goal is to travel as far as you possibly can against the clock. The tracks now have checkpoints for you to reach that reset the time, too.
In accordance with this, if you smash into one of the neon walls of the gauntlet it doesn't instantly end your go as it does in the Classic Mode. All it does is slow you right down, meaning you'll have to wait for your speed to build up again.
Obviously, doing this is not wise as it makes getting to the checkpoint in the given time a lot harder. So you still need to be dodge-happy to get a high score.
The problem our reviewer had with Storm Rush is that it "is perhaps a little too minimalist for its own good." By that, he meant there wasn't enough meat on his bones.
It was a high-score chase with an exhilarating first-person perspective that gave you a sense of speed. But its fun would probably only last a few minutes.
So, hopefully, with the new Rush Mode, Storm Rush is a little more worthwhile now. You can find out yourself by purchasing it for £1.49 / $1.99 on the App Store.
