Capybara Rush

By Suvia Li Apr. 5, 2023

While scrolling through TikTok, I came across an intriguing video: a game developer adding a capybara riding an alligator to a dynamic digital street environment. The clip included snippets of the game, Capybara Rush, and the peaceful capybaras instantly piqued my interest.

With a 4.8 rating on the App Store, Capybara Rush features adventuring capybaras. I particularly appreciate capybaras’ calm spirit and their nonchalant facial expressions. When I first downloaded the game, only the classic level mode was available—players ran forward as a capybara, collecting other capybaras and tangerines while avoiding traffic obstacles. Collision results in the loss of capybaras, and if enough capybaras are lost, players are demoted to a lower level. The game has simple controls: tapping the screen to jump, swiping left or right to change lanes and holding down to slide under obstacles, making the game effortless for anyone of any age to pick up.

I enjoyed the classic mode, but I was pleasantly surprised when the app began releasing new modes. The capybaras can now drive, swim, stack and fly, each mode with its own unique challenges.

I personally like swim mode the most because swimming capybaras have an untouchable aesthetic. Aside from tangerines, capybaras are now able to acquire popsicles, watermelons and bananas which are exchanged for capybara skins, adding a fun and personal touch to the game. My all-time favorite is the Shrek skin, which gives the capybara a green and gray coloring with Shrek ears.

The game’s design is charming, featuring adorable brown capybaras with placid smiles—set against colorful and whimsical environments such as a jungle and the deep sea. The background music is upbeat and lively, creating an engaging environment. It is free with in-app ads that can be easily removed with a one-time purchase.

After I discovered Capybara Rush, I shared it my friends and family. Everyone who has played it loves it; there is something about capybaras running back and forth that makes players happy. From its ever-evolving gameplay to its playful design, Capybara Rush is a marvelous game that is definitely worth downloading.
