From a simple voice recording and voice manipulation app, Talking Tom really has come a long way. It eventually evolved into a successful franchise by Outfit7 Limited and expanded to multiple sequels and spin-offs. The franchise eventually introduced new characters such as Angela, Ben, Ginger, and more. It also covered a great number of game genres including a virtual pet simulation, bubble shooter, tile-matching puzzles, and even an endless runner. The success of the franchise even led to an animated tv series. Currently, Outfit7 Limited has launched 30 Talking Tom and Friends app games with billions of downloads worldwide.

Talking Tom Time Rush is the latest addition to the franchise’s growing collection. While the game was officially released last year, it was only made available to limited countries. Interestingly, the game was finally launched globally, allowing fans of the Talking Tom franchise to embrace their latest offering. Similar to Talking Tom Gold Run which was launched in 2016, Talking Tom Time Rush is also an endless runner game. Tom and his friends managed to invent the time machine that can take them to different periods of time. However, Roy Raccoon stole all the runes, forcing the team to chase him to retrieve the magic stones.

The Gameplay

The mechanics of the game are generally simple and easily manageable. It works similarly to other endless runner classics, specifically the Subway Surfers by SYBO Games. The goal is to get the highest score possible by running as fast as you can while avoiding all the obstacles that you will encounter along the way. If you have played the Subway Surfers mobile game, then you will find a lot of notable similarities. As soon as the game starts, your chosen character will start running automatically and the only actions you can manipulate are the ability to move from one lane to another, to jump, or to slide down the obstacles.

You are also encouraged to collect gold bars that are randomly scattered along the way. To top it all off, you can also take advantage of the powerups that you can collect while running. These powerups can help you maximize your winnings. Hitting an obstacle will automatically end the run and you will be given options to revive the character by either paying a premium coin or by watching a reward video. Otherwise, the game will come to a quick end and you have no other option but to start again back from the very beginning.

Dynamically Changing Maps

One thing unique about Talking Tom Time Rush is the map. As you progress, you will be able to unlock new worlds. Each rune that you retrieved from Roy Raccoon represents a certain time period. By default, the first map you will explore is the prehistoric period where you will encounter dinosaurs and other prehistoric people. Eventually, you will unlock other worlds including pirate-themed, ancient Rome, and many other equally beautiful maps. Each map also comes with its own set of obstacles that are appropriately designed to match the theme.

Unlike other endless runner games that offer multiple maps to explore where you must end the entire run to switch to a new map, Talking Tom Time Rush allows you to explore all maps in one run. Whenever you unlock a new map, it opens accessible portals in each world that can instantly transport you to a new map or time period.

Unlockable Characters

Just like Talking Tom Gold Run, the game also allows you to play different characters that are based on the Talking Tom franchise. Aside from Tom, you can switch to other playable characters like Angela, Hank, Ben, Ginger, and Becca. In addition to their default appearance, you can also unlock other skins for each character. To do so, you must collect cards that can be obtained every time you earned a new level. You can also buy a pack of cards from the in-game shop either using the premium currency, real money, or by simply watching a reward video.

The outfits or skins for each character are entirely based on different time periods. This feature provides this mobile game a decent replay value and longevity. Appearance-wise, Talking Tom Time Rush is also an absolute visual delight that treats you with visually stunning and well-polished graphics accompanied by a well-fitting piece of music and audio effects that makes the game more engaging and fun to explore.

Whether you are a big fan of the Talking Tom and Friends franchise or you love playing endless runners, Talking Tom Time Rush is definitely an excellent game for your device. It is simple, fun, and undeniably addictive. It is also an excellent time killer that works well even without an Internet connection, allowing you to play the game anytime and anywhere you like. Good luck and have fun!
