Ah, mobile game conversions, gotta love em… or not. Probably more appropriately played with a touchscreen (though certainly workable with a controller), Surface Rush keeps things light and simple for the most part. You’ll determine the direction and force you want to use to propel yourself forward, and the goal is to collect stars and coins without running into anything that will be lethal. The addition of gates, directional arrows, and other complications that continue to be added the further you go along keep it all from looking far too much the same, but throughout this remains pretty accessible any-age fun. Now, whether it’s worth even its budget price on the Switch eShop instead of on your phone or tablet (I’ll note that it isn’t free their either, making it a bit more fair) which would still work great and likely be more practically portable could be another question.
