Mafia Rush 

 

Family Friendly Gaming normally has nothing but love for Chillingo titles. Mafia Rush is going to be an exception to that normality. In this iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad app we are gangsters. Mafia guys. The rude, crude, disgusting, repugnant murders who reigned through terrorism just like the Taliban. The mafia is part of the dark history of America.

Mafia Rush has players steal, murder, blow up, and defend their own kind. The official modes are Robbery, Defend, Attack, and Survival. The wanton levels of murder, mayhem and destruction in Mafia Rush makes it a toned down GTA. The camera is in a top down view point perspective as the player commits crimes and kills anything in the way.

Dead bodies do eventually vanish in Mafia Rush. This hand held game just keeps throwing the same looking guys at you. Kill two, and two more come. Don't kill them and you get over run - with a quickness. So avoiding the violence is nearly impossible. Players are also given no choice in terms of the crimes. You have to do them, or lose the level.

The sound effects are irritating. The game is routinely throwing out old gangster sayings. Things that make this reviewer's skin crawl. The reason for that is the WMG knows the history of the gangsters. It is not to be worshiped or admired. They were evil - pure plain and simple. Their attitudes is part of that - they have that center of the universe disease.

The controls are done in two on screen rotational buttons. The movement is on the left and the shooting is on the right. Both of them have joystick like on screen controls. Go up and to the right and your character walks up and to the right. Use the weapon down to the right and he will fire down to the right. This seems easy. This seems simple. But it can be difficult facing the right direction and shooting the guys enough times to make them go away. The difficulty is up there pretty high as well.

Normally Chillingo games do really well with Family Friendly Gaming. Mafia Rush is one of those games we can not recommend. In fact in this reviewers opinion it is one to avoid. What good can come from fantasizing about being a criminal? How will that make you a better person? How will that make our world better?
