"This game is hard to describe but it is a hell of a lot of fun think Pinball where you control the ball mixed with Tower Defense and you have an idea."

About This Game

A rock-solid combination of rock-rolling action, deep strategy, and captivating art and music from different ages of history, this is a game of crush or be crushed! Two castles stand opposed; one is yours, the other is your enemy’s. They're a jerk and their castle sucks, so you’re going to try to smash it using an enormous boulder. Even as they build up their defenses, you're ready to roll over them in order to raze that unsightly tower. But beware! There’s a giant boulder headed your way, too.

This is the most amusing game I have on my steam library. I had moments when I cried from laughter, because of how ridiculous it was.

Comical but short, Rock of Ages is an fun little game filled with humorous jokes and scenes about various historical characters and time periods. It won't take you long to complete (it took me roughly six hours), however the way it combines traditional tower defence elements with intense rock-rolling action leads to a fresh and unique gaming experience.

A very goofy game from the Zeno Clash people.It's sale price is easily worth it. It's kind of like....bowling warfare with Monty Python transitional humor. Closest thing I can think of to this game is Odama on Gamecube. I didn't actually finish it, as I found it to have too many stages, and the same strategy works for almost all of them, but it was definitely fun for a few hours. It has a neat skiiball minigame too.

The Goods
  • Spicy hot memes; only the freshest of memes that could be supplied from the year 2004!
  • Local multiplayer*! * - Make sure you have two 360/XBone controllers, because who can be arsed to allow a keyboard AND a gamepad?
  • Lots of maps. Look at those maps! Some of them are long, some of them are short! Variety!
  • Humor! Monty Python and fart sounds! Did I mention the memes? Meme boulder achieved!
  • Plenty of game modes, but one of them sucks (which one? FIND OUT!)!
  • Internet multiplayer has Moonbase Alpha text-to-speech, because fuck you!
  • Dies Irae, best Mozart. Fight me, idiot.

The Bads
  • Game was made with less than 3.3 million dollars, somehow. Very cheap! $2 sale very likely!
  • Cows do jack, and sometimes shit. Build elephants, but only because cow is deadbeat.
  • Internet lobby consists of two people chained to desk dungeon. Find friends or suffer the wrath of Singapore.
  • Nobody plays in 16:9 resolutions, so you must infiltrate the .ini files to absolve yourself of your mistakes.
  • No meme updates ;(

One day Sisyphus got mad. I mean really angry. He was so ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off he ripped through time and used his boulder to break into the house of and assasinate over 20 of the most historically significant people of all time. This is like the opposite of Time Squad.

I was going to dismiss it as shovelware early on but it was suprisingly challenging and varied, though not so long that it overstayed its welcome. This is how you make a casual game.
