Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dress Up Rush HD simulates running a boutique clothing shop, with a focus on time management and customer service, rather than fashion or dressing up. Interspersed between the levels is a storyline that follows the main character as she opens and expands her store, talks with friends, and dates. The scenes are often in bars or at the beach with drinks nearby, with women wearing bikinis and sexy clothing. In the actual game, the bulk of activity involves responding to customers' demands before their wait time expires, which requires quick responses and some time management. A link from the start menu lets you email friends and see more games from the developer, or sign up to get more information through email, Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube.
Is it any good?
DRESS UP RUSH HD promotes pursuing your dreams and, like many time-management sims, teaches some basic concepts about running a store. Despite the "dress up" title though, the clothing is surprisingly dated and outlandish. And while your customers' clothing and mannerisms vary somewhat between levels as you improve the store, the diversity ends there -- all the characters and customers are white. The incorrect grammar in the tips also gives the game an unpolished feel. However, the good controls and many levels will provide many hours of engaging play for budding entrepreneurs with quick fingers.
