Huge disappointment. Gameplay is too commonplace and boring as suggested above. Miniclip also advertises 'many achievements' but none of them are are via Game Center.

I finally decided to buy it. But with all those great btb runners (most of them are free) Rail Rush is just average. It looks good, the controls work fine but it just won't catch me like agent dash or subway surfers did.

Tips for Success

Hello, all! frisbee10461 here!

Here are a few tips to beating this game. After you reach level 32, you are king of the mines, so here goes:

1. The best way to get gold is by completing missions. For each time you level up, you get the level number x 300 gold. So, if you are a level 10 character and about to level up, focus on completing the mission, and you'll get 3,000 gp.

2. I hate to say this, but none of the characters or power ups seem to matter. So, if you buy a magnet for 600 gp, you have to earn 600 gp for the next run just to break even. As gold is hard to come by, that is not likely going to happen. Even the characters themselves do not seem to bring much of an advantage. What I would advise you to do is to save your money up to complete any missions that are challenging (you can pay 10K gold to complete it automatically). If you are to buy a character, but the cheapest one, as he increases your gold intake by 10%.

3. One glitch in the game is that if you tap the screen as soon as you die, your character is resurrected, but this costs you 3,000 gp. This can get annoying, so I recommend that as soon as you die, to avoid swiping the screen.

And what happens when you complete this game? Well, you get the coveted sapphire gem, and you start again as a level 1 character.

However, this is a great game to play. Definitely better than Temple Run 2.

Just my two cents,

In case you are interested, here is the screenshot when you reach level 32. Afterward, you restart as a level-1 character.

I think I'll just stick with Temple Run 2. No need for more of these games.

For what it is worth, I was sorely disappointed by Temple Run 2. Rail Rush is, in my opinion, a better game. You may want to try it before dismissing it.

Just my two cents,

I've been playing it a good bit, and think it's pretty nice. As far as the dieing and resurrecting for the 3k gold, go into the options and put "Save Me" on the top. That'll save you lot of accidental uses of that option.

I'm trying to figure out how people got millions of meters lol.
