Windows Phone has its fair share of great games. There are a ton of high quality games from both indie developers and larger game makers. Game developer Miniclip has just released a new game for Windows Phone called Rail Rush. As you may know, Miniclip is no stranger to Windows Phone. They’ve released popular games like Fragger, Gravity Guy, iStunt 2, and others. Now they’ve got another game that’s sure to be addictive. Let’s check it out.
Rail Rush is game that Miniclip has had for a while on other platforms like web and iOS. It may be late to Windows Phone, but we’re not complaining. Rail Rush plays a little bit like Temple Run and other endless running games. In fact, you might have a bit of nostalgia and feel like you’re playing some of those old levels from the Crash Bandicoot games (loved those so much).
In Rail Rush, you’re racing a cart through some caves. You’ll be swiping and tilting to collect treasures and avoid crashing or falling off the track. Here’s all the features you’ll be getting in Rail Rush for Windows Phone 8:
- 12 different characters
- Cool power ups
- 4 different worlds and many hidden levels
- Stunning graphics
- Action packed gameplay
- Many in-game achievements
- Game statistics
The game ran smooth with good graphics on our Lumia 1020. Gameplay itself is pretty fun and can be really addicting once you get a hang of the controls. The game itself is free, with in-app purchases to help you along the way if you get stuck.
Sounds great, right? What’s the catch? It looks like this is a Lumia only game since it’s currently in the Nokia Collection. Windows Phone users with non-Nokia phones won’t be playing this game. On that note, we don’t have a 512MB device with us, so you’re going to need to help us out in the comments on whether or not it’s available for those devices. Update: You guys rock, users are reporting it works on 512MB devices. Enjoy!
