A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The game includes instructions, and is pretty easy to pick up.


A giant cookie rolls along, chasing people. When the cookie hits people, they vanish in a puff of smoke. The people can also get attacked by animals (they simply get stopped and then run over by the cookie) or fall into the water.


The main page has a link to other games from the developer. A "support" link on the options screen opens the developer's website.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Cookie Rush! is a simple but entertaining arcade game in which the player helps people outrun a giant rolling cookie. There is some cartoon violence (mostly with the cookie crushing people) and the game uses OpenFeint to track high scores and achievements; users who opt in to OpenFeint can also chat with strangers.

While thinking of sweet childhood nostalgia, this game quickly came to mind. I’m very depressed that this game isn’t on the AppStore anymore BRING IT BACK NOW.

Is it any good?

In COOKIE RUSH! there's a giant cookie on the loose, and your goal is to rescue people from its path before they get crushed. The people run automatically, but you can tap on the screen to create trampolines for them -- to jump over water, dangerous animals, and obstacles. When there are enough people running together, they cry for help and an airborne vehicle will arrive to rescue them. The cookie chases people over various continents and oceans; you'll see farmers, ninjas, cowboys, and moe if you survive long enough. The game is quite simple to play and can be very addictive. The graphics are bright and cheery despite the horrifying doom of the cookie, and you'll have fun rescuing all the little characters.
