Description

It's rush hour and you're in a hurry, but there's a major traffic jam. You race along a five-lane freeway, in control of a car equipped with weapons, on a mission to destroy certain carrier cars which are causing traffic jams. You must weave in and out of traffic at high speeds blasting slow-moving cars in your path to reach your destination. Along the way, you must also avoid obstacles such as destroyed cars, barricades, nails, and oil slicks on the road. A radar tracks the enemy and warns of coming danger.

Collisions with other vehicles and objects will damage your car and cause malfunction. The car will repair itself slowly as time lapses, or you may pull over for a quick repair, but you may let your target escape if you take too long. You only have one car, and the game is over when this car is lost.

Release

Rush Hour was originally developed in 1983 by CommaVid, Inc., but never released. Around 2002, CGE Services Corporation acquired rights to the CommaVid catalogue, and the game was released (with several major glitches fixed) at the Classic Gaming Expo 2003.
