Rush Hour 3D is a pretty simple game about overtaking. You control the whole thing with a single digit, pushing on the screen to move into the overtaking lane, lifting your finger to steer back out of oncoming traffic.

That’s not to say that there aren’t other things you need to consider. Things like the ones we’ve covered in this guide. We’ve stuck our face deep into the experience and come up with the hints, tips and tricks you’re going to need to make it to the finish line on every level.

If you’ve played the game and would like to share your own suggestions then stick them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. Before that, here’s our guide to how to overtake with style in Rush Hour 3D.

Keep Your Combo Up

Keeping your combo score high is the best way to rake in the gems. It means that sometimes you’re going to have to throw caution to the wind and try and nip into the gap that’s only just big enough for your vehicle to fit through.

You only have a short window of time to overtake another car and keep your combo going. The higher your combo score, the more gems you’re going to get. The more gems you get, the more you can spend on getting new, faster cars.

Complete The Challenges

You’ve always got three challenges on the go, and finishing them will bag you massive stacks of gems. Sometimes you’re going to finish them just by playing, but others are going to take a little more concentration – like finishing a level on low health.

You should concentrate on finishing challenges whenever you play. There are challenges that simply involve watching a video – you’ll get lots of gems for doing it and open up a new challenge to focus on too.

New Cars, More Fuel

The in-game fuel system means sometimes you’re going to run out of gas. But you’re not running out of gas completely, just for one vehicle in particular. So, if you buy a new car, it comes with a full tank of gas.

Fuel replenishes over time, so as long as you’ve got a few cars in your garage you’re never going to run out. It might make some levels more difficult, because you’ll have to use slower cars, but you can still finish them and earn gems while you do.

The Right Car For The Job

Some cars are stronger than others. Some are faster than others. In police chase levels, for example, you’re going to want to use something tough to negate the damage from the cop car plowing into the back of you.

If you’re having trouble finishing a level, consider using one of the other cars in your garage. You’ll often find that using a vehicle with a different set of stats will make things a lot easier.
