Looks like Monty Python and gaming had a very special hug.

Oh man, this game is great! You see, Rock of Ages is actually an accurate historical representation of medieval warfare. Instead of having men, women and children slaughter each other mindlessly over some petty argument, disputes were settled by using sentient boulders. Yes, rocks. As this round stone, you travel through the ages of classical art (t)rolling and smashing everything on your way! Just remember though, you are not alone. Just as it happens, the enemy team has sent away a boulder of their own, and you have to race down with them! Whoever splats (oh god I love that sound) the enemy general, wins.

All in all, hilarious visuals and sounds, fun gameplay, some surprisingly complex base defense features and absolutely fantastic multiplayer modes, together make this game a must buy. This game has the Pidgin's Feather Seal of Approval, 5/5 would poop on.

Rocks do indeed roll. It's totally accurate in terms of history, too.

This game rocks! No, seriously, it is a good example of how to mix fun gameplay and educational value. It is a humorous travel through history, art, mythology and popular culture. Sisyphus becomes a tragic hero who defies the god Kronos with his own torture instrument: the rock. Kronos even eats the rocks, like in the myth. Funny touch in the end is: everyone in this game ends up in hell.

Since this is on sale right now (20th of October today), I wanted to recommend this game.

first of all, it's rediculous. That is already a good enough reason for you to get it. It is just pure ♥♥♥♥ing rediculousness. You control a mother♥♥♥♥ing stone ball that smashes ♥♥♥♥. Oh and you're competing vs various gods and historically relavant people. To be more specific, it's basically a two sided race to the opponents fortress gate (you break the gate with your big ♥♥♥ rock), you have to get there as fast as possible while also avoiding obstacles placed by the opponent, when your rock has hit the gate or got destroyed by some mean elephant (no seriously, this game had elephants before Far Cry 4), you get to place these same obstacles.

Very whimsical, uplifting, and sometimes challenging. A truly great game. Cheap, and easy to pick up and play (levels are fairly short and straight forward). ♥♥♥♥ing buy it!
