NBA Rush released on iOS

NBA Rush banner title headerNBA Rush is a mobile runner game released by Renren games on the iOS. For a sports game, NBA rush seems to have sport as an incidental premise as opposed to a part of the game. Which, as far as I am concerned is a good thing. I’m not a sports game fan, and generally don’t even bother trying them. Though seeing as this is free it is, as I am so often fond of saying, worth a download.

So, I downloaded NBA Rush and gave it a bit of a go. OK, several minutes worth, but a few minutes is enough to gauge your average runner game.

Swipe left and right to avoid obstacles, up and down to jump or slide respectively, Jump on aliens and grab power-ups to destroy the alien menace that apparently can only be thwarted by the NBA players.

Honesty, the sports angle is kinda thin and in many ways it feels bolted on, but that can be said for many licensed games I suppose.

Anyway, you can download it for yourselves here and try it. Let me know what you think, maybe I’m put off by the sports angle. I can be rather stoic in some ways.

Renren Games Launches “NBA Rush”
The First NBA Endless Runner Mobile Game

In NBA Rush, gamers assemble their own all-star team by choosing select NBA players from 30 NBA teams.  To win, NBA players must weave through city streets, parks, tunnels, buses, cars and alien ships, while throwing down massive dunks on aliens.

NBA Rush incorporates all of the fun gameplay elements that define the endless runner genre with a basketball spin.  To change directions, NBA players execute crossover, behind-the-back and through-the-legs dribble moves.  When juking left and right doesn’t get a player through the alien defense, the NBA players’ hops will save the day.

NBA Rush will be free to download on the Apple App Store and will have in-game purchases to enhance gameplay.
