Solid Gameplay
Good Art Style
Great Mechanics

Cons:
Some levels are a little overwhelming

I bought it really cheap so I could get 'verified'. It was worth it, I think.
It's a fun little puzzle game, it is.

I bought this game on sale for very cheap, and while I can't say it's not worth what I paid, because it most certainly is, I just think there was a lot of wasted potential here. The thing is, puzzles in general can be very fun and rewarding, or very frustrating. I think the main thing that makes a puzzle frustrating is when you simply don't have enough information to solve it. Sure, it's a valuable life skill to be able to solve problems even when you don't have all the tools, but those kinds of problems are supposed to give you real life rewards, not present themselves as games and take your money.

My biggest complaint about this game is that it relies heavily on things it never gives you a chance to understand, particularly timing. Many of the puzzles are very simple in a spatial sense, but require timing movements exactly so that you can interweave block paths. However, the game doesn't let you change the speed of the runs, and it's not consistent between different runs. Furthermore, some of the harder puzzles have blocks traveling at different speeds.

As if that wasn't enough, it seems the game doesn't even judge collisions based on a notion of which block occupies which tile, but rather it actually uses hit detection, so blocks entering and leaving a tile at about the same time can still collide by touching corners for a split second. This makes some of the puzzles unnecessarily trial-and-error in nature, with the player just switching blocks around between multiple nearly identical solutions in spatial terms which result in slightly different timing, in the hopes that one of them will eventually produce the correct result. A good puzzle game shouldn't be designed to make you just randomly try things until one works.

Another complain I have is that there's no ability to zoom the camera in or out as far as I can tell. You can rotate the camera, but the level of zoom is consistently too close or far to clearly see all of the map. The game would've also benefitted from a square lense (orthogonal view if I remember correctly from 3D modeling) rather than an eye-type lense, because several of the puzzles have you dropping blocks from one platform down to another below it, and trying to line up the camera from above to see what will happen isn't very effective.



All in all, it's an interesting concept for a game that had potential, but it feels like it was developed to work against you and force you into trial-and-error runs rather than actually thinking about space and time in discrete units with well-defined, known rates of movement. This game could've been more fun in 2D 20 years ago. I found myself using the hints (which make it way too easy) and trial-and-error to solve the harder puzzles, because it didn't even feel like cheating when that's about what I would do without the hints anyway.

RUSH is a decent puzzle game suffering from some interface issues. Gameplay is quite simple, and unlimited hints allow anyone to progress through the game. The main problem is that you will likely spend more time rotating the camera to the correct angle rather than thinking about the puzzles. I feel like this camera issue is almost by design, as later levels push the designs to obscure as much of the layout as possible. It's a simple puzzle game without clarity in many levels. Interestingly, some puzzle elements are barely utilized or introduced (speed up/down modifiers), but the game is most certainly not getting updates to add levels using these elements.

It's a short, simple, and imperfect game for sure. I was never really amazed, but it wasn't an awful experience. You can live without it, but it is quite affordable. The game can be beaten 100% in under 7 hours. I got it for 90% off if I recall, and I would recommend a decent sale considering the limited length.

Really good puzzle game!

I was afraid the game would be too easy to finish or the levels to be too recurrent, but there's a good difficulty rate and we don't get easily tired of the beautiful colored graphics.

A great puzzle game with a broad selection of difficulties. Very calming background music helps make it easier to focus as well as more enjoyable to play through.

Rush is a nice little puzzle game that's good for a few hours of play. The only gripe I have is the difficulty. Easy is exactly as it says it is, Medium is a little harder and Hard is for when you want to feel like a dumb ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. The jump in difficulty from medium to hard is disappointingly gargantuan, going from a little challenging to frustratingly confusing. The artificial difficulty lies in the very specific tile placement needed to beat the levels and the little to no clues to help you decipher the solution. Even when you figure out the trick to beating a level, fidgeting with the tiles to find the ONE solution it asks for is somehow both simultaneously boring and frustrating. I felt very disappointed in myself for having to use the hint system, but unless you want to move tiles around aimlessly for hours you're going to have to use and abuse it to win. Simply put, hard difficulty is not fun and felt more like a chore than anything else. However, in the 3 or 4 hours it takes to beat the easy and medium stages, I would recommend picking up this game only if it is heavily discounted. Not worth a whole $5 in my eyes.

RUSH is another cool game by the makers of EDGE and QUBE. very fun in short bursts and a good puzzler when played. runs pretty smoothly, with the sudden lagspike if playing on an older computer. you direct cubes to the right goal by placing down tiles that redirect them. if pure puzzle is youre style, or you just want a fun game, get RUSH. my rating 7/10

The puzzles were a great balance of difficulty and ease. Found myself stuck on a few puzzles but I figured them out within 10 minutes (without cheating). Easy levels are a bit too easy though.
Price Rating: 8/10, Good for 3-5 hours of fun/puzzling, Great buy on sale, but still worth the $5 if not on sale to the Hour of play = dollar spent ratio.
Game Rating: 7/10, Great puzzles, some of the harder levels made my PC lag a bit, so it's rating dropped a bit from that, otherwise a great orgy of color in a nicely made puzzle game.

Total Rating: 75/100

RUSH is a really pointless and boring puzzle game that I do in fact regret purchasing. I am just greatful that I had gotton it 90% off and only payed $0.49 for it. The audience of this game is for 5 year olds and most of them will probably rage because the game is somewhat difficult. The reason I don't like that it is geared towards 5 year olds is that most don't have Steam and that they would not think about purchasing a game like this. This game has no replay value whatsoever and so that is a shut-down for me right there. The gameplay and graphics aren't good and I don't like it a lot. Even though i payed a measly 50 cents for it, I still wish I hadn't. Personally, the players it is geared towards should go back to their xbox, chocolate milk in hand, and play Call Of Duty.

Color blind buyer beware!
As a colorblind player, I cannot tell the difference between the reds and greens, making this game impossible (or impassible?) for me to play. Being that it only costed me $.99, it's still $.99 wasted. This problem could have easily been avoided by the developers as there is no option to change the colors or a way make them easier to identify. This game is one to avoid if you are colorblind.

RUSH is one of the more challenging and enjoyable puzzle games I've played, and exactly the kind of challenge I'm always looking for! But thanks to a really good optional hint system, everyone can play and enjoy this game.

You have to place direction tiles on a platform so that when blocks move over it, they will go the direction you want, so they can reach their finish. But you only have a limited amount of tiles, so you need to think it through as to where to place them. On top of that you need to be careful as to not make blocks collide into each other.

The game starts with a bunch of easy levels, which will give you an idea whether this game is for you or not. The harder levels can become quite a challenge, and especially the hidden levels and secret Portal levels can take up a nice bit of your brain power.
