Sidescrolling action game; pretty solid
Rush 'n Attack is a solid action/sidescrolling game, well done, well produced, yet pretty basic in most ways. It offers you a fantastic set of levels, with the Russians as your main baddies. You are a heavy marine type, and you will have to destroy all the enemies in each level. The levels themselves could have been a little more original, yet, as they are, they are not bad. They are colorful, with good elements, here and there, and with a pretty well produced and well delivered construction. What might feel a little like a letdown is the fact that the game reuses a lot of the textures and the enemies are also just not too diverse. You have 4 different areas to play through, a missile base, a harbor area, a bridge and a prison camp. Each area has its own visual style, yet all of them have something very similar. So, overall, Rush 'n Attack plays great, has a very bare metal feel to it, but you'll like it, if you don't look for something extraordinary, but for a good sidescroller with military theme. Else download Shinobi, one of the best arcade sidescrollers with a shuriken heavy protagonist taking over entire armies of machine gun enemies!
