A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Traffic Rush wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Ease of Play
The game is quite simple to play: Swipe a car to accelerate, or tap a car to stop it in place temporarily. Avoid collisions.
Violence & Scariness
If two vehicles collide, then there's a crash and the game ends. For motorcycles, the rider is visible lying on the road. The graphics are stylized and very small on the screen.

The main menu has a link for more games, which leads to the developer's website. There also is a link on the options screen for developer news.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Traffic Rush is a simple arcade-style strategy game that involves directing traffic through a busy intersection while avoiding collisions. It's easy to learn and play, and kids will enjoy trying to best their own top scores. Because of the depiction of the collisions, there's some very light violence involved; however, a single collision ends the game (and the object is to avoid them!). Note: The app includes links to the developer's website for more games, but, beyond that, kids will find Traffic Rush a fun distraction that keeps them on their toes.
Is It Any Good?
Traffic Rush is simple and addicting, and its graphics are clean, crisp, and charming. Although the game is quite simple, it can be a very fun challenge to try to beat your top score. That said, there isn't much else to the game but tapping and swiping, and it's basically a game of reflexes and observation. The app also provides fun statistics such as the number of cars saved, the average speed of the vehicles in each game, and the daily high score.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
