A really fun physics-based twist on tower defense, with a very charming art style. Definitely recommended.

A game that combines history, marble madness, tactics and warfare into one hysterically funny package.

Rock of Ages is a fun and "Rocking" game (sorry that was really tempting XD. Anyway back to the review). When you play, you make buildings to defend your "door" (your base). Soon as your door is broken you lose! You break their door YOU WIN!!! When you have finished with the buildings ITS TIME TO ATTACK!! You destroy their base by breaking their door as i said earlier. Sooner or later the game starts to get harder. Oh and by the way you can customize your own rock and dont forget you can get a trollface rock so you have the trollface on your boulder/rock. Rock of Ages is a hell lot a fun game and definitely worth buying! To wrap it up, I'm just warning you, sometimes the game can glitch and move your mouse to the left corner for only that one defence bit then it goes back to normal. And the game is pretty ragey. I died 2 times on 1 level and I raged so much i hurt my hands XD. But the score that I'm giving this amazing masterpiece 10/10

This game is like someone threw Monty Python, Tower Defence, and Marble Madness in a blender, turned it on high for a few minutes, arranged it into a delicious dessert, and sprinkled some history on top for flavor enhancement. Honestly, how can you go wrong with a game in which you control a gigantic boulder (of varying shapes and sizes - I must say the fist is my favorite), and use it to shatter your opponent's gate? Even better, you get to squash their defenseless, flailing forms immediately afterwards to an immensely satisfying whoopie cushion sound.

If that is not enough to satisfy, there are also trained war bovines, elephants, and mammoths for you to use and abuse in the defense of your fortress. There are also elephant-launching airships.. If you are like me, you may derive much more pleasure from their strategic placement to troll your enemies, whether they be human players (yes, this game has online multiplayer) or historical figureheads.

Highly Recommend for some hard core laughter.

As much replay value as Monty Python's Flying Circus, and about as funny. Novel, hilarious and well worth five dollars.

I'm actually pretty surprised at the rave reviews this game has gotten.
It was hilarious and very Monty Python-esque, but my gawd is the gameplay itself repetitive as all hell.
There really wasn't much motivation for me to keep playing past the first hour of gametime, and I never had any desire to touch it again.

I didn't quite get the appeal of this game. It seems like a mobile game brought to PC (which isn't that bad) but the simplistic nature of rolling downward and hitting stuff seems a little to simple (even with the power ups). Rated quite well, just not a game that I can get into.

I feel it would have been better named as "Monty Python: Bowling Edition"

Strange and quirky, this game is easily the most fun I've had with a game in a long while. Simple to play, yet quite challenging.

Wow. What a great game. I got it on sale and it is honestly the best 2 bucks I have spent. I highly recommend this game. Very fun to play, expecially with friends. It is very fun to play overall as its an action packed mix between Monty Python, Super Monkey Ball, and Tower defense. Hoping for more content in the future!
