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.
