Vacuum Rage is a casual rush-style racing game. An angry, blue anthropomorphic vacuum cleaner has decided to clean everything in sight on the road in front of it in a community located on a high peak, including garbage, rocks, trees and even red stickmen and their houses! Only fast stickmen with parachutes can escape the insanity.
The player directs the movement of the vacuum's nozzle to collect as many items as possible. Their goal is to earn the highest score per level and the highest cash amount. At the end of the road, the vacuum deposits everything into a huge, clear, rotating trash receptacle.
The robot vacuum moves down the road on its own. The player directs the nozzle from side to side. After they win a level, they use the cash they earned to improve the vacuum. They can use level-up cards to increase its speed, battery strength and nozzle size.
Unlike similar games, Vacuum Rage doesn't allow the vacuum to fall off the sides of the road. That said, the game increases the length of each new road over time, which can place a higher drain on the battery. Additionally, the player can lose if they fail to collect enough items with the nozzle or run out of battery charge before reaching the trash collector.
