Rush Hour is an award-winning app for iPad where you have to move vehicles out the way in order to remove the red car. Each vehicle can only move forwards or backwards in the spaces that are available. In order to achieve the goal, you’ll need to work out a strategy. Similar to chess, in the way that you need to think ahead and plan your next couple of moves. All of this is great for logic and problem-solving skills.
The app contains 2500 games with four difficulty levels — easy, medium, hard and expert. If you get stuck at a level you can tap the ‘HINT’ button and if you’re completely lost, tap the ‘SOLVE’ button.
