Play OverviewPlay Overview

BlazeRush (2014) is a car racing and combat game where you beat other players across the line by any means necessary. Play is viewed from the top, like Micro Machines, which lets you not only pick the best racing line but trigger attacks and bumps to push others off course.

The goal is simple: cross the finish line first. However, you have to watch out for other players trying to do the same. You pick up a variety of offensive and defensive weapons along with speed boosts and rockets. It takes simple kart racing in a high-octane multiplayer direction with four people competing in the same game.

The result is a game like Blur, that combines the kart racing arcade action with a wide range of combat-style power-ups and collectables. It's high-speed and hard-hitting and a lot of fun for players of any age.
