Smash & Brag: BustNRush Demo

Coo, some simple arcade charging around. BustNRush is a Unity-made pseudo-3D smashing stuff game from Techtonic Games, in which you run very, very fast through a stone corridor of obstacles (in the first set of levels, at least). You need to be sprinting to smash through the blue blocks, jumping or dodging to avoid the red blocks, and leaping over ravines. At what eventually becomes great speed. If you fancy trying the demo, be warned that the tutorial levels build up slowly, until you're dodging, jumping and sprinting so frantically that your brain will finally announce, "Ah, I get it!"

There's a Challenge Mode, which will require you complete courses smashing a certain number of items, leaping the right number of gaps, or lasting a suitable length of time. And since these levels are randomly generated, it isn't a case of learning to patterns to complete these, but rather getting better at playing the game.

There's also an Endless Mode, which throws everything it has at you, while you aim for a high score. And it's all rather compelling. Oh, and it has a backstory:

"Deep within the Depths of Thurl, a man of pure power and speed makes his home. This man, Kovo, enjoys the simple pleasures of life: a little music, a soft place to rest his feet and, of course, his polymer pal, Paco. Enter The Satellite of Wub, a monstrous villain that dares to strike down Kovo’s plastic pet flamingo. With a shake of his mighty fist, Kovo begins his journey to exact revenge upon the beastly machine that trashed his friend and home. Follow Kovo’s adventure as he traverses his home planet, defies an inexplicably evil factory and finally leaps from vessel to vessel to destroy the colossal Satellite of Wub."

You can get the demo from here. The full game is on Gamers Gate for £6.
