Mobile Game of the Week #11- Tunnel Rush

Heading back into the “Simple Action” genre, Tunnel Rush by Deer Cat has two controls: strafe left and strafe right, and that’s all it needs. You sprint down an infinite cylinder with obstacles jutting out of the walls and tap left or right to dodge them. There are two sections to each level, one on the inside of the cylinder and one on the outside. The two styles are largely similar, with the exception being that it’s a lot easier to see what lies ahead on the inside of the cylinder. While on the outside, the path can rise or fall ahead of you, leaving you less time to plan for what lies ahead before it suddenly rises into vision. It’s never unfair, you’ll never find anything that hits you from out of nowhere, and it never forces you to try to remember the path as you try it over and over.

There’s a checkpoint at the beginning of each level, where you’ll be sent if you die on either the “inside” or “outside” parts of the map. Each level has new obstacles, keeping you on your toes as you play. While the tunnel is completely black and white, the obstacles change color every level to give the game a little “pop” and prevent visual boredom. I think it goes without saying at this point that while the game has a soundtrack, I prefer playing my own music over it and you probably will too.

Tunnel Rush is free on both iOS and Android devices. If you’re not interested, either check back next week for another recommendation or take a look at the archives:
