This is the original sliding block Traffic Jam puzzle, brought to you by the company who created it – ThinkFun.

Rush Hour comes with 35 challenges, ranging from Beginner to high Expert. Enough challenges to get you hooked on Rush Hour… Upgrading to the full version will get you a whopping 2500 challenges, enough for years of Rush Hour fun!

This is a very nice collection of challenges brought to you by the geniuses at ThinkFun. You're going to have a lot of fun with your Rush Hour FREE game!

This is the ORIGINAL Rush Hour – and it’s also the BEST.


Your goal is to get the Red Car out the Exit Gate. To accomplish this, just move the blocking Cars and Trucks out of the way.

Here at ThinkFun, we believe in efficient driving. So for each challenge, we track your moves against the minimum distance possible, and score you on how close you came to a perfect distance score. Each challenge becomes a quest in itself!

For your moments of frustration, we’ve included a HINT button. If you need a big boost, we also provide a SOLVE button. We recommend you fight your way through and never use these, but they’re nice to have available.

Perfect for everyone

I love this game! I just played the real thing (you know like the one that is plastic) with my six year old brothers! They loved it so I searched for a game that would keep them entertained on their iPads and I thought, "Hmmm...Rush Hour would be that most perfect game for them!" I searched for the game and they loved it! I got it on my iPad too. I think every person in the world would love this game! It is entertaining like I hoped it would be! I got it for my brothers because they would not stop asking me to play and I was like doing homework or feeding my dogs and bird and I was busy but the app really helped! I can get a lot of stuff done now! Thanks Rush Hour!

A perfect match for the original board game

I was just playing the "real" Rush Hour board game with my six year old daughter, and it was taking a bit of time to set up each new challenge. So just for kicks I checked the App Store to see if there were any similar games for my iPad. Boy was I surprised to find the real deal from the same company. Thanks for offering this free version. I have a feeling my daughter will run through all the levels in about 20 minutes (she's playing right now) and start asking me for the full version. Great implementation! Very easy to use and learn. Lots of fun.

just like the physical game

I have the real, plastic version of this game and the app version is just like it. It's nice that it counts your moves and gives you a perfect score target. the only down side for me is that my son clicked "hint" on all of the advanced levels, so my best/perfect scores are recorded next to a big H for "used hints."
