Popeye: Rush for Spinach is a racing game in the guise of a side-scrolling platformer. Players choose from either Popeye, Olive, Bluto or Wimpy, and then navigate their way to the finish line of each world. Special power-ups help them gain speed, such as cars, pogo sticks, skateboards, rockets and even dinosaurs. Strewn across the levels are assorted hazards designed to slow you down and make progression more difficult. In addition to the standard Adventure Mode, which strings together the levels with a story, you can also choose from a versus mode, or a time trial mode.
