FCB Ultimate Rush is a great app for the modern football fan, especially those who favour Barcelona. The game is like Temple Run – you move one of your Barca players across three lanes (middle, left and right) on the street to capture as many coins and power-ups as you can. On the way you have to avoid the cars, road blocks and more to get through to the end (in quest mode) or continue to reach the highest score (endless mode).
You can choose from five Blaugrana stars to lead your run, from the mischievous Luis Suarez to the nimble Lionel Messi or the magic touch of Andres Iniesta. There’s also dangerous winger Neymar Jr and if you’re looking for height and strength, Gerard Pique is the best man for a job.
What makes this game stand out is its ability to integrate the principles of football into an app that the average mobile gamer would expect to see. There is jumping (for a header), a slide (for a tackle) or a kick (to score a goal).
A nice touch FCB Ultimate Rush has added for football fans is the ‘pitch game mode’ where you gain a power-up to convert the streets to a football pitch. On this football pitch you can gain a plethora of coins but the main aim is to clash with the powerful footballs coming your way from the sky.
The game modes are particularly important. Endless games are usually only popular during periods of hype, which is why Temple Run has fallen in popularity. Yet this game offers you the chance to play quest mode, giving an incentive to the fans who want to play this game in the long-run.
It does get a little repetitive after a while as many of the levels are identical; a possible addition of more challenges could be viable, but it all depends on the nature of the player.
We rate it: 8.5 out of 10 – An addictive game that comes with incentives to play more. The only thing lacking is a diversity of game modes.
