I love it so much, when developers just throw the boundaries of rudimentary logic and reason away, and produce something so unbelievably ridiculous, but so absolutely exciting. As an example, I still play Punch Quest, which is about 90% ridiculousness, and 110% awesomeness. Robo Jungle Rush isn’t quite reaching the glory that is Punch Quest, but definitely not because it doesn’t try to.
It’s a real mystery to me, why Robo Jungle Rush is called like it is, because it doesn’t feature many robots, or jungles. To be clear, I’m not exactly sure, what it is that it features, and frankly, I don’t care. You face spherical monsters, firing lasers at you, giant boulders, rock heads, ancient poles, and whatever other bits of content developers dreamed up in fevered dreams, probably after nights of prolonged, borderless smashing. Your hero is an unnamed boy, or man, or flesh demon, or whatever he is, running God knows where, on some interstellar, green aerial highways, or whatever those things are, for unknown reason. If you didn’t understand it yet, Robo Jungle Rush is a complete mess, when it comes to content, but it’s a good, exciting kind of mess, so it’s more of a good acid trip, rather than someone’s delusions. In any case, you run forward, and try to evade the many creative traps that try to stop your progress.
The controls are actually quite complex, for an infinite runner. You need to tilt your device, to evade whatever dangers can be dodged on the lane you’re running on, swipe downwards to slide, swipe upwards to jump, and double-jump, and swipe sideways to change lanes – and it’s not counting the power-ups you can get from the start that have their specific buttons. So, yes, Robo Jungle Rush is a relatively rich game, and definitely has a lot more content than most of infinite runners – and a lot more mechanics, as well. As a very interesting twist, some abilities let you destroy your obstacles, turning them into gold pick-ups, while two abilities actually change the gameplay by giving you a vehicle. Naturally, there are also missions you’ll have to complete, in order to get more gold and purchase upgrades for it. There aren’t many upgrades to get, and most of them prolong durations of different power-ups, but it’s ok, because Robo Jungle Rush actually requires your skill more than anything, so the coins don’t really play a really significant role, although getting the upgrades and expendable power-ups definitely helps. Wrapping up, Robo Jungle Rush is exciting, and incredibly entertaining, despite its complete randomness.
