Our examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Clumsy Rush a year ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 6 months ago.
You play an anthropomorphic hippo and must manipulate your legs to move through the stage and get to the crown, all before making your way to the finish line. Whoever crosses the finish line wearing the crown wins, regardless of whether they finish first, so the person with the crown is always racing to the end, while everyone else tries to stop them and take it for themselves.
In addition to your basic movement by controlling your feet, you can also dash forward and launch into other players or move quickly, but doing so with the crown makes it fall off your head, giving those without the crown an edge in movement.

4+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger players need to work with the simple but purposefully difficult controls. This can make it sound too hard for youngsters, but actually they usually take to this quickly and it's more experienced players who struggle. In this way it's a good game to level the playing field and allow young children to enjoy the silly fun.
