The spacebar (or X key) is used to activate your nitro boost. The P key pauses the game. The 1, 2, and 3 number keys are used to switch radio tracks.

Heat Rush Walkthrough

Heat Rush is an amazing driving game with gameplay and music similar to the classic car game, Out Run, by Sega. Heat Rush features three-dimensional graphics, an amazing soundtrack, ten different tracks to speed down, sixteen achievements.

The objective of Heat Rush is to make it to the end of each track before time runs out. The faster you complete each stage, the higher your score will be in this driving game. If time runs out, the game is over, but you will be able to start this car game from any stage that you have previously completed the next time that you start.

If you are familiar with the gameplay mechanics of Out Run, then you will be right at home playing Heat Rush. Stages branch out on the map, so you will be able to choose the next stage that you want to race on after you have beaten each stage. You must beat four tiers of stages on the map to win this driving game. You will not be able to play all ten stages of Heat Rush in one sitting, but if you come back to this driving game later, you will be able to play the different stages by selecting different branches. You can drive through all of the stages of this driving game in as few as four playthroughs.

Not only is the gameplay similar between Heat Rush and Out Run, but the music in this driving game is just as good as its arcade counterpart. I actually paused the game and kept in running in the background just to listen to the music for a few minutes. The third track is my personal favorite, but you can discover your own favorite track in this driving game by using the 1, 2, and 3 number keys to switch between songs.

Upgrades are attained in Heat Rush by completing achievements. Personally, I did not notice a difference in my car's performance after getting upgrades, and this car game is beatable without any upgrades at all. For a full list of achievements and their associated upgrades, click on the button labeled "Upgrades" above the "Continue" button on the stage selection screen.

If you are a fan of the classic arcade game, Out Run, but don't want to fire up an emulator to relive the experience, then Heat Rush is just the driving game for you. Kick back, enjoy the lovely graphics and awesome tunes while you cruise in Heat Rush!
