Storm Rush Review

With both modes the aim is to just keep going for as long as possible. If you haven’t had much experience with these types of games before, you will probably find yourself struggling to travel for longer than three seconds to begin with. But as with most things, the more you play it, the better you’ll get. I’ve only managed to get around eighty-nine seconds but after that, Storm Rush starts to require semi-professional gamer skills which I sorely lack.

Aesthetic Charm

The artist, Vincent Jenkins has done a great job with the graphics of Storm Rush as I feel they’re what really stand out. The way the sky morphs as you ascend and descend the pathways gives a really cool dystopian atmosphere. I especially love the way Popcorn Entertainment have created the world to populate itself right before your eyes, allowing you to get a peek at the obstacles coming at you down the track.

Storm Rush Gameplay

The way the map is populated as you progress makes for a visually stimulating experience.

Dan Gautreau also does a stunning job with the music that follows you throughout the challenges. As you progress beyond the first section of your run, the music gets quite exciting. To be honest I want to progress as far as I can purely so I can listen to the entire soundtrack.

Final Thoughts

For a genre that already has many big name rivals, indie game developer Popcorn Entertainment has really hit the nail on it’s head with Storm Rush. It could definitely be the next big thing after it’s predecessors but at the moment there’s not really much incentive for replay. Unless you’re the type of gamer who wants to be the very best and get the highest score in the world, you’re going to struggle to find a reason to go back to it.

But really, Storm Rush provides such a great experience of it’s genre that the more support it receives, the more Popcorn Entertainment can give back in terms of future updates.
