Not only is it dull, repetitive, and mind-numbingly easy but it’s clearly not even finished. Everything about it just screams “placeholder”. The low-res forest background, the not at all cute Pokémon design, and the awful PS1 era 3D visuals. It looks like a developer made a proof of concept for a Pokémon game.
On Google Play, Pokémon Rumble Rush Android updates will come every two weeks with new islands, according to the listing. This means new battles and collectibles, which is bound to keep the game entertaining indefinitely. This is why Pokémon Rumble Rush mobile game project seems and feels like the most serious attempt by the developers to create something that will perhaps stay a bit longer on the market. It is naturally free-to-play. As a single player game, it is ideal for the whole family and recommended to all lovers of the franchise.
Overall, Pokémon Rumble Rush is a charming game, and fun for those who like collecting things. However, the awkward map feature and the requirement of refining ore to get gears to boost the Pokémon mean it can be a needlessly frustrating grind, and the inclusion of a two-week deadline between area swaps, there's the perhaps some unwelcome added pressure thrown into the mix as well. As we all perhaps expected, this free-to-play Pokémon outing doesn't set the world on fire, but the truly dedicated fans who have followed the Rumble series this far will enjoy it all the same.
