With Office Rush the developer XIMAD delivered something special, this is not just a smart Jump and run, no, you will have to puzzle your way through, take a look at the screenshots to see what I mean. This is a genre mix from Jump and run and puzzle that will challenge your dexterity, which brings a lot of fun and makes this game worth every cent.
The menu is crafted nicely, you have direct access to the most important options like sound and highscores via Openfeint. You can also replay your favorite levels through the “Level Select” option.
In my review I was most interested in how this game would play and what it is all about.
Office Rush has one distinctive feature, you will see the level split in three parts and one empty field (in later levels there are even more parts). There’s a reason for that, because just like in a sliding puzzle, your goal is to rearrange the levels so you can accomplish your task, which isn’t always easy, because sometimes the player has to go up or down, so you take a good look at the pieces and think about how they can combine with each other.
As soon as the game starts you can double tap to zoom into the part where your player stands, another double tap zooms out, where you can move around the parts, until you can advance. Zoomed in you have arrows left and right and when you press one the other one becomes the jump button, which worked flawless, so multitouch is integrated optimal.
There’s a story, where you have to do typical bureau tasks with different characters, sometimes you are a headless suit wearer, sometimes the overworked secretary that needs to get a glass of water to the chief.
The only thing wrong with this game is the sound, so please deactivate it, if you don’t wat to hate the game. Without sounds the game is a lot of fun and something new and really innovative.
You can download Office Rush for 0,75€ in the market, a demo version is also available.
