Onrush is an arcade-style vehicular combat game in which players drive a variety of off-road vehicles, from motorcycles to buggies, across large levels over hilly terrain.The game features a boost mechanic that players can use to increase their vehicle’s speed. Players earn boost by performing stunts and slamming rival racers to take them out.The game itself is a team game; twelve players are split into two teams of six.In a significant departure from other games in the racing genre, none of the game modes involve reaching the finish line first. In “Overdrive”, teams score points by boosting; the first team to boost enough to reach the target score wins. “Countdown” involves a series of checkpoints and a timer that drains over time; teams can keep the timer from running out by successfully passing the checkpoints, and if either team’s timer ever hits zero, the other team scores a point. “Lockdown” is a King of the Hill-style mode in which teams fight to stay inside a zone that moves along the track with them for points. “Switch” gives each member of each team three lives and tasks the teams with taking each other down to win, but upon crashing, players will respawn in a more powerful vehicle if they have lives left.
