System Rush is a futuristic racing game for the Nokia N-Gage platform. It was released in 2005 and available Worldwide through leading retailers.


In a world controlled by corporations, information is everything. Knowing that your competitors' secrets is the only way to get an edge in the cutthroat arena of corporate dominance. In this information age, warfare is carried out by "black hat" (morally corrupt) hackers who have become electronic gladiators for their boardroom puppet masters.

You are a "white hat" hacker on the verge of being framed for a high-profile global cyber-crime. Your sophisticated program, designed to cleanse any network of malicious hacker activity, has been stolen by black hat hackers on the payroll of Globenet. A network of unscrupulous corporations. This evil alliance intends to use your code as a "logic bomb" to bring down rival corporations.

Your only chance at clearing your name is to infiltrate Globenet, steal back your code and expose the conspiracy.


System Rush can be played both as a single-player game and in a multi-player mode, using either N-Gage Arena or a local Bluetooth connection. As of December 2007 the Arena functions are now defunct.


System Rush was an original concept by Ideaworks Game Studio who also developed the game.
