"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."

Rock of ages is a game about rolling down a hill; to squish a little man, literally.



In Rock of Ages, there is a very minor story, hardly relating to the game. This isnt a bad thing because the game doesn't need a story to be enjoyed, however the story is humorous.



The core gameplay aspect of Rock of Ages is rolling your rock down a slope riddled with defences in order to smash down an enemy gate. The opponents, are not only people from history, also attack your gate and the player must build their own defences in order to slow down or stop the other rock. You gain in game gold in order to pay for defences, and to upgrade your rock.



The defences range from towers, elephants, catapults and even bombs. These are used to slow down the enemy rock, if enough damage is done to the rock, it shrinks, dealing less damage. The upgrades for your rock are simple, adding metal spikes or lighting your rock on fire, dealing extra damage. Damage is also decided by the speed of the rock when it collides with the door; the faster the rock, the harder it hits.



Rock of ages also has a few mini games, one of which is skeeball. Rock of ages also has trading cards, and very easy achievements, making the game apply to a larger audience.



Rock of Ages does things right



Its story is humorous

The gameplay is overall enjoyable

Easy 100% achievements

The co-op is good fun with friends

The mini games are mostly fun

The in game destruction looks good

Its overall very original



Rock of ages does some things wrong



It can be repetitive

Slightly boring to some older gamers

The Defences aren't overly effective

The respawn locations can really mess with the player

Lacks real substance



Overall rock of ages isn't bad, it's just basic. The $10.99(CAD) price tag is way too high unless the player is planning to 100% it. Its a fun game to play with friends, however. It also makes the game lots more fun.

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.

GAME WITH BALLS
Rock of Ages remains fun despite its problems, and makes for some great local competitive play. The campaign gets annoying at times because of the time constraints with defense building, but is quirky and funny enough that it ultimately remains worth the time. If you're looking for something unlike what you've played before, it's time to let Rock of Ages rock your world.
