In the rush to get their stores built as quickly as possible, many supermarkets are now cutting corners when launching new outlets and using sub-standard materials, or sub-standard building crews.

I have many heard horror stories about car parks collapsing and floors subsiding and I've often wondered how I would react if I was trapped in such a grim situation.

Well now I know exactly how I would react, after playing RushHour on the Pocket PC.

This entertaining logic puzzle game provides an interesting distraction for sharp minds.

The premise of the game is that you go to collect your car from the parking lot only to discover that the floor of it has completely collapsed.

In order to get your vehicle out you need to undertake 40 levels of tormenting puzzles, moving all the cars in the right order to get to yours.

OK, when I say move the cars, I mean move a series of coloured rectangles that actually look nothing like cars, not even if you squint your eyes or turn the screen upside-down.

Yep, the graphics are very basic to say the least. There's nothing in the way of sound effects either, so in terms of presentation RushHour is a bit of a car wreck.

Ignoring these issues, the game is actually pretty captivating and although negotiating the levels can get infuriating, it's one of those where you simply must solve them to avoid lying awake all night thinking about coloured blocks.

Rush Hour is a sliding block puzzle created by Nob Yoshigahara, and is known by numerous other names such as "Car Jam" and "Traffic Jam". The object of the game is to move the red block out of the grid, but to do so you must move all of the other blocks out of the way.
