"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

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.

Rock of Ages is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. It makes me lie down in green pastures, it leads me beside quiet waters, it restores my soul. It guides me in paths of righteousness for Rock of Age's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of Rock of Ages.

It's a bit of tower defense against a giant rolling ball...
Think marble madness with a bit of light humor to it.

There are different game modes, but mainly two main game perspectives to play from.

The first perspective is of the marble ball. Your objective is usually to reach the end of an obstacle course with enough momentum to break into the finish line. There's a few little twist to make it interesting, such as an skeeball like target at the end of the course.

The second perspective is building the course. You usually given resources to build towers and other defensive structures to slow down your opponent.

It's fun silly competitive game. Each match usually last less than 20 minutes. And they even have funny options for your marble ball, such one of them is just a cube.

Would make for a great mobile game, but unfortunately the current player base is slim.

An incredibly unique and silly boulder racing game. Some of the mechanics they chose to go with need far more depth, preferably in a sequel, but as it stands this is certainly worth playing.
