About This Game

Roundabout is a '70s B-Movie game where you drive a constantly revolving limousine! Pick up passengers, find secret collectibles, take on dangerous missions, and fall in love in an open world puzzle adventure. Roundabout is the debut title from No Goblin, a studio founded by designers of games like Destroy All Humans!, The Gunstringer, and Rock Band!

In Roundabout, you need to pick up passengers and drive them to their destinations. The catch: your limousine is constantly spinning in circles! To move around in Roundabout, you need to time your limousine's movement with the constant rotation in order to curve around obstacles, buildings, and more.

Set in 1977, Roundabout tells the rise to fame story of Georgio Manos, arguably the world's most famous revolving chauffeur. While driving players around the town of Roundabout, players will learn about the dizzying highs, terrifying lows, and secret loves of a revolving limousine driver. You'll experience the seventies in the only authentic way possible: with full motion video set in the interior of a limousine.


  • Drive a constantly revolving limousine through the crowded streets of Roundabout.
  • '70s B-Movie Full Motion Video throughout the game adds a new spin to a classic rise to fame story.
  • Open world puzzle action, featuring dozens of twisty streets, collectible pickups, and purchasable properties.
  • Upgrade your limousine with new hats, horns, and paint jobs.
  • A full suite of challenges to compete against your friends in.
  • Dedicated eSports speedrun mode. Roundabout is the only official eSport endorsed by a talking skeleton.
  • Big Head Mode. Also a number of equally fun game modifiers and extras that are not Big Head Mode.

Posted: September 18, 2014
Wow, Roundabout is one of the most casual, fun experiences of the last few months, maybe even years. Don’t go and expect a deep game, because Roundabout doesn’t take itself seriously, not even for one moment, and that’s its biggest appeal and the reason why it is such fun. This is one of the reasons that I play games.

If you take a second to look at the screenshots you might think you’re dealing with a Crazy Taxi clone here, only shown from an isometric perspective. But I’m glad to say that you couldn’t be more wrong. In Roundabout you control a limousine (driven by a female driver named Georgio Manos) that spins around. Always and all the time. This makes navigating through the streets damn hard, but oh so much fun. And it’s the essence of Roundabout.
You’ll die frequently while playing this (not literally), especially later in the game when there are even more objects to avoid. Dying doesn’t really have a penalty; you just spawn at a checkpoint. The checkpoint system could’ve been implemented at bit better, because sometimes you spawn very close to where you died and sometimes the game takes you more than a few steps back. This is random; I had times where I would die at the same spot and respawn at totally different places. Small annoyance, but nothing frustrating and it certainly didn’t make the game any less fun.
There’s lots of stuff to do in the city/world of Roundabout, but your main objective is to pick up passengers and bring them to a specific location. Along the way you can pick up coins that will increase your multiplier. Bring your customer to their location unharmed (well, the limousine shouldn’t be destroyed is what it actually means) and you’ll earn a nice amount of money in return. But hit something along the way and the combo is lost. You can also stand still if you think you’re about to hit something and that way bank the combo instead. The money can be used to buy cosmetic things like a different limousine skin, hats (for on your limousine) or horns. Or you can buy some properties that will eventually make you more money to buy even more stuff.
Contrary to what you would expect is that Roundabout is an open world game. Meaning you can go anywhere you please and take on any job you want. There’s no set order. Discovering the world at your own pace makes the game so much better. Whenever you’re not taking on missions you can drive around and find hidden collectibles, do some challenges, find more cash, try to complete challenges in order to unlock more power-ups, buy properties and even perform crazy jumps (yes, you get the ability to jump after a little while). And this brings me to the power-ups that you can equip, but bear in mind that most of these have to be unlocked by completing a certain objective, like running over 2500 people, or hitting a certain amount of traffic cones. But anyway, you can eventually unlock a boat to drive over water, a tool to make your limousine smaller or a weapon that shoots traffic cones. There are more power-ups to unlock and they’re usually quite handy. So it’s only logical that you have to work a little for it. During your first playthrough you’ll probably use the slow motion power-up the most. It does exactly what it says and it allows you to drive easier on busy roads.
Missions can be finished in one way, but each mission has a set of objectives that range from ‘don’t hit anything’ or ‘don’t explode’ to ‘collect every coin’ and ‘don’t use power-ups’. Completing these objectives affect the rating you’ll get at the end of each mission. If you want to 100% the game you have to complete all of them. Some are relatively easy and some are harder than you might think.
Each mission starts and ends with a FMV movie, and sometimes one is triggered halfway through a mission, or at a checkpoint. Okay, so it’s basically quite random.
The actors and actresses in these little clips are terrible at acting, but they do this intentionally. These could be people randomly picked up from the streets, I don’t know. It’s so cheesy and corny that at the same time it’s also very funny. And some of these spoken lines (actors and narrator) really are funny. The movies give the game an identity of its own, which is a smart thing to do when you start a new IP like this.

The graphics are cartoony and use a lot of bright colors. Textures are sharp but not extremely detailed and the engine runs at a solid 60fps. There is a bit of stutter when the FMVs start though, but this doesn’t happen all the time fortunately.
The voice acting is cheesy and mediocre, but as I said, this was done on purpose. Same goes for the acting. The sound effects are relatively basic with people screaming, cars crashing and explosions. No big effects here. The music has a 70s funky/soul vibe to it and this is exactly the vibe the game is aiming for, since it’s set in the 70s.

Unfortunately this isn’t a very long game and if you speedrun through it I guess it could be completed within 90 minutes. But you’ll probably just enjoy the story and if you take your time, occasionally going out of your way to collect and buy stuff, then this game could easily take you 4 hours or more. I finished the game around 40% (about 4 hours of playtime), so 10 hours total playtime would be a fair guess if you ask me. Considering the price of the game this is more than enough content. And there are still the standalone challenges that you can play to earn a place on the Leaderboards.

Roundabout is nothing short of excellent. I had an amazing time with and I wish it was longer, with even more missions to complete. It’s become an insanely fun game meant for young and old gamers alike and you owe it to yourself to buy (and play) this. You won’t be disappointed, believe me.
Now, where’s my approval stamp ?

[Rating: 83/100]

Most of us have been gaming a super long time by now, and anyone who's been around can tell that ideas are slowly running dry. Innovation is something more or less absent from the game industry as we see the market pump out bland shooters, uninspired retro platformers, Diablo-likes, or roguelike-likes sticking with elements they know sell while struggling to find ideas that haven't been exhausted already. Every great once and awhile a game comes a long and changes everything capturing the hearts of players everywhere by simply presenting us with a mechanic so strange and simple yet is an absolute blast to play. A game that makes the player stop and ask "Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?"

Roundabout is unlike any other game I've played, utilizing a concept more original since the world was graced with the likes of Katamari Damacy and its genre bending gameplay and definitely channeling that same spirit of creativity and imagination. The humorous 70's B-movie story of Georgios' epic rise to becoming the worlds most famous rotating limousine driver is told through the campaigns many quick narrative driven missions. Each twist of the story brings you to different locations on the map, with key events being triggered by large yellow exclamation points that are just as tricky to get to as the missions are to complete.

For such an out there and crazy concept Roundabout works incredibly well and plays like a dream with the swift and responsive controls of a rotating object through maze-like obstacles that is slightly reminiscent of the offbeat classic Kurukuru Kururin which spent more time in my GBA than probably any other game available for the system. Roundabout takes this concept of quick wit and extreme navigational skill to the next level, applying the quirky but obsessively fun sport of spinning to a GTA style sandbox world with an impressive map that you are free to explore at your leisure.

Don't feel like continuing the campaign? Tackle some side missions or test your skill against the world with some speedruns. Don't feel like pushing your rotating skills to the test and just want to relax? Take a spin around town and use your hard earned cash to buy various property, upgrades, and cosmetics in the form of hats and new horns! The choice is really yours, Roundabout is a sandbox with tons of possibilities offering open ended explorative gameplay that anyone can hop right into.

You'll spin your way through bright and sunny suburbs, crowded streets of the city, all the way to the snowy outskirts of the countryside all in a hilarious and dramatic journey to face down your ultimate rival and take back the title as the best spinning driver around. Finding your way to events is almost as much fun as the events themselves as you fight to go with the flow and use the rotation in your favor, bumping and crashing into everything in the process. You'll be whipping around in circles bringing your colorful cast of customers to their designated drop-off points in the fastest possible time like some sort of tweaked out Crazy Taxi.. Crazy Limo?

Roundabout has a seriously great sense of humor and tells its B-movie story in the best way possible; FMVs. Those not familiar with the long lost form of pop-culture might find this aspect of the game to be cringe-worthy, but as an old school fan of the likes of Tex Murphy, Bad Mojo, and Night Trap the style satisfies every nostalgic craving perfectly and even exceeded all of my expectations of what sort of imagery campy yet memorable FMVs are capable of.

You don't have to be a fan of FMVs to fall in love with Roundabout, though. It's a game that bursts with a style of its own, a game by people with a great sense of humor targeted towards those who don't take themselves too seriously. Its addictive and accessible obstacle course rotating action set to only the grooviest of tunes and the spiffiest of visuals. Roundabout comes from a history of quality game making, and has nothing but love put into its collaboration, making this one hell of an entertaining trip

I don't think I've played a game that was as instantly charming as Roundabout since Katamari Damacy. The core mechanic is fun and satisfying to master, and the FMV cutscenes are downright delightful.

This is a good game IF you find the cutscenes funny. Otherwise it's going to be hell, because it's short and repetitive, and the FMV is basically the driving force behind playing. (A few fell flat for me, but overall, I'll recommend them.)

There's some optional content, however: ABSOLUTELY buy the deluxe edition. The behind the scenes footage, alternate builds, and cut content were some of the most fun I had with the game. It's telling that while the game wore me down by the end, I finished it just to see where the hell this lunatic story went, and I want to see what No Goblin does in future. They've almost guaranteed my purchase.

Unless it's like... I dunno. Some sort of Postal 1 clone or something. That one I would probably skip.

Visit the city of Roundabout and help Georgio Manos, who is clearly not a woman, fight against an evil rival copycat chauffeur, the police and centrifugal forces, and maybe even help him find love!

Framed by gloriously trashy 70's style FMV sequences, the gameplay of Roundabout comes as advertised with a twist. Causing mayhem on the streets comes naturally when trying to maneuver a car that never stops spinning. Inspired by games such as Kuru Kuru Kururin, controls are responsive, yet actually controlling where you drive is challenging.
One can play through the main story fairly quickly, yet that is only part of the game. Numerous fun challenges await, there are collectibles en masse to be found, and a good amount of customizations to be unlocked. As a finishing touch, there's several goofy extra options, such as the Roundabutt mode.

If you are looking for a unique gameplay experience, and enjoy indie games that take themselves seriously, but have a lot of fun while doing so, Roundabout might just be your kind of game. The store page offers a demo, so go ahead and see if revolving is your thing as well.

Do you know those games that are great ideas that just aren't executed correctly, resulting in a game with a ton of potential but no actual worthwhile content?

Roundabout is not one of those games.

Roundabout is an ingenious game. A game with a clear, well executed theme and a hilarious playthrough. The story is absolutely as silly as the gameplay, too. You play as a limosine driver that revolves, as you pick up a cast of strange characters and drive them throughout the city of Roundabout. The game goes about its goal of creating a 70's B Movie very well, with everything from acting like what you'd exepect from a 70's B Movie to VHS postprocessing effects that really add to the experience. Even little things, such as the HUD and subtitles add to the theme. The characters and story are memorable as well.

My only gripes are of the story length, as I wish it could be longer due to how great everything else is, however there are many challenges and settings that add various other neat things to the gameplay (permadeath mode, limo customizations, various collectables hidden throughout the map) that add some replayablilty.

A great game, I'd give it 9/10

Absolutely hysterical. Everything about this game is silly and fun, and the FMV is so loveable. It's a fairly short game, but there's lots of side-quests and bonuses to accumulate, so you can pretty much play it as long as you want.

Roundabout is a top-down platforming game. They describe it as a '70s B-Movie and you'll find that everywhere. Expect 'bad' humor, 'bad' scenes/acting, 'bad' plot, etc. It has a very particular style of humor throughout the game that I think you'll either like or hate.

Pretty simple premise: you have a car that always rotates/spins and you have to maneuver it, avoiding obstacles, to your destination. The car itself doesn't control like a vehicle; you can jump, move in any direction (with a slight delay to reverse direction or reach max speed), and choose to spin faster. Collide with enough objects enough times you'll explode, no regenerating health. You drive through the same world where story missions take place. Missions are generally 'avoid obstacles, follow checkpoints until you get to the destination' missions.

There are plenty of collectables scattered across the world when you're not in a mission so there are things to do while travelling in-between missions.

A lot of the time one hit leads to another (no real invulnerability period after a hit) so you can destroy the limo pretty quickly. It's pretty frustrating when you almost get to a checkpoint before getting caught on one obstacle that destroys the car.

I would have liked a fast travel option or a way to just start missions. Maybe an easy-mode hot-air balloon type of thing to fly over the world just to activate missions (and be unable to get collectables).

It was a little annoying when I died multiple times trying to go fast through the city and just wanted to get to the next mission area. There are areas that I found a pain to get through which is fine for a mission but annoying for world travel.

Because the game plays almost top-down, I found myself looking a lot at the minimap for pathing and the main screen only to dodge/manuever. You can't really tell what the best path is because it's zoomed in enough that you may make a leap of faith into a deadly series of obstacles. I found out later that you can press +/- on the keyboard to zoom out a little but it's still not quite enough for me.

In rare cases (after dying) you'll respawn in a bad location that causes you to immediately take damage again.

Worth a look if you like platformers and you think you'll like this variant. Even if you enjoy cheesy cutscenes you're going to have to platform your way through the world and through several dozens of missions to see the story (which is B-movie mediocre). If you're not enthralled by the gameplay you're probably not going to keep interest long enough to get to the ending.

Roundabout is a cheesy low-budget FMV game starring a limousine driver, a mechanic, a lady in a hat, and a $40 skeleton bought off of with surprising entertainment value.

In Roundabout, you control a constantly rotating limousine. You play as Georgio Manos, the world’s first revolving limousine driver. Your limousine is constantly rotating at all times, which forms the core of the game’s gameplay – you know how to get from point A to point B, but your constant revolution makes your life a lot more difficult. Early on it is fairly simple, navigating your way around stationary obstacles, but as the game progresses, things get increasingly more difficult, with moving obstacles, barrels which cause you to bounce in the opposite direction after striking them, platforming (done while spinning all the while), and the odd unique gameplay challenge to make things harder.

The core of the game are the “rides”. At the start of each ride, Georgio picks up a passenger, each of whom has a little bit of dialogue to start things off – a reason for going from point A to point B. There’s also a narrator, who chimes in, and both the narrator and the passengers are pretty chatty – every mission contains numerous lines of dialogue, as well as at least two FMV videos, one at the start and one at the end – with some rides having additional FMVs interspersed in the middle.

The passengers are deliberately terribly acted – every character acts in a very cheesy way. The videos are shot to look like something made in the 1970s, and the game itself is set in the 1970s, with references to Jimmy Carter and Disco present throughout the game, and a 70s aesthetic to the entire world.

But while the characters are campy as heck, they have a certain degree of Narm Charm to them – the acting in this is one of those “So Bad It’s Good” sort of things, and deliberately so, and it more or less works. It is impossible to take the game seriously, and the game knows it, and so plays it to the hilt, with “serious” events being comically ridiculous due to context, acting, and the very low budget of the game.

The game itself outside of the FMVs looks reasonable – it is not the highest quality of graphics, but the cars have an iconic quality to them, and while there’s nothing particularly special about the graphics in the game, they’re very serviceable and look decent enough.

While you can play through the game and just beat it, the game is not very hard in and of itself – the game is very generous with checkpoints, and it is impossible to fail at a ride. The real challenge in the game comes from completing optional objectives on the various rides. These include speed running the ride, beating a ride without getting hit at all, collecting all the coins in each ride, and beating the ride in various more difficult ways (no jumping, no using your alternate abilities). You can complete one or several of these challenges in any particular go at a ride, and you need not complete them all in a single ride.

Additionally, there are various collectables. Beyond being able to buy skins and limo hats via in-game currency which is not terribly difficult to collect (I ended up with $4k in the bank at the end with nothing to spend it on), you can also purchase properties… which periodically give you more money (oh boy!). But there are also piles of money in the environment to collect, “sick jump” icons which are in places you must jump to (ranging from inanely easy to reach to quite difficult, requiring multiple distant leaps), and horns which make different sounds when you honk them.

You also can unlock a bunch of items which allow your vehicle to do different things. There’s a raft which allows your car to float on water and dive beneath it, there’s an ability which slows down time, there’s an ability which reverses your direction of rotation just as if you’d hit a barrel, there’s an ability which makes your limo play ice cream truck sounds to pull in pedestrians to run over… there’s even an ability to shrink down your limousine, unlocked only after you beat the game, which makes a few things a lot easier (and is required for beating a few of the speed run times). These unlockables are either unlocked as you progress through the game, or (in most cases) unlocked by completing some sort of special challenge, such as running over 2,500 pedestrians or bouncing off of those direction-reversing barrels 100 times. While some of these sound tedious, I actually ended up unlocking almost all of them in the first of three major areas in the game.

All in all, this game is remarkably fun for how low budget it is. It rolled with its low-budget nature and did not take itself seriously at all, and as a result, it actually ends up having its cheesy story work to some degree – you can’t help but be amused by the terribly campy characters and the overdramatic narrator, and all the terrible, terrible puns. The gameplay itself is competent enough, though 100%ing the game is pretty tough, especially the speed run and no hit challenges.

If the core gameplay mechanic seems interesting to you, then this might be worth checking out.

You play as Georgio Manos, driving your clients around town in a crazy spinning limousine while trying to avoid obstacles and pick up items. A controller is strongly recommended.

It's a non-linear open world game with storyline attached. You head towards one of the animated stars on the mini map to pick up your next client. There's a short film (FMV) of a real-life character actor on the back seat telling you where he/she wants to go and why, then off you go following a big yellow arrow, trying to avoid all the cars and other obstacles in your way. If you hit 5 obstacles your car bursts into flames and you respawn at your last checkpoint, of which (thankfully) there are many.

Dotted around the streets there are spots where you can get a full repair. These are useful when they're in the middle of a particularly difficult stint but mostly redundant since you constantly just die and respawn anyway.

At the end of each successful trip there's another FMV as the character's personal story progresses. There's no overall storyline, the various threads are all unconnected apart from the fact that Georgio drives them all around.

At a certain point in the game jumping your limo becomes a thing, and the tasks increasingly require it.

Pickup Items

There are many items to collect all over the place:

  • Stars placed along the route. Try to collect them all during each trip for a bonus.

  • Piles of cash boost your profits (which also increase as you complete tasks) and with the money you can buy properties, which boost your profits further.

  • Shortcuts open up new areas of the map to explore.

  • Hats (objects that appear on your limo roof - burger, donut, cardboard boxes etc), horns and paint jobs are unlocked which you can then buy with your profits.

  • 9 mini games/challenges - eg. keep the football in the air, place the coffins, destruction derby - most of which have related achievements and leaderboards.

  • Upgrades are introduced as you reach certain milestones in the game. The first one allows you to slow the car down which is very useful for new players. I'm fond of the one that reverses the spin direction at will - most obstacles are designed to be navigated either by spinning clockwise or anticlockwise so being able to choose makes things slightly easier.

'70s Theme

It's certainly recognisable as 70s. The generic background music (twanging bass and fast trumpet) from all 70s cop shows gives it away immediately, but if you're looking for period drama or insightful commentary on 70s culture then I'm afraid you're out of luck. There are some wing collars, tasteless sports jackets and I heard a pedestrian yell something about Jimmy Carter but that's about as far as it goes. There's a groovy disco tune on the main menu; I would have liked to hear more pieces in-game but sadly not even Disco Sylvain managed to produce any, and there's no punk at all.

Wanton Genocide

Crowds of pedestrians shout angry comments wherever you go. They all end up in your wake as a bloody mess (don't worry, no close-up gore). There's no penalty for murdering innocent civilians, in fact one of the upgrades requires you to mow down 2,500 of them. It seems counter-productive for a driver to cull potential clients though doesn't it?


... is (intentionally?) bad and the storylines are a bit wacky and inconsequential. There are quite a few characters with a different actor for each. The star of the show is a plastic skeleton, which indicates the general standard of acting here. These FMVs, though I wouldn't find them very impressive in any other context, do bring the game to life and I've enjoyed every cheesy minute of it. Georgio herself never utters a word. No idea why not.


For the first few hours I was bursting into flames literally every 5 seconds. Towards the end my stamina increased to 10 seconds and occasionally even to the dizzying heights of 15 seconds (please resist any filthy comments). Deaths cost nothing though, unless you're trying for a deathless achievement. After a while it becomes part of the game and you're often repeatedly trying to make it to the next checkpoint without dying. Checkpoints are numerous enough that you can still make good progress despite frequent deaths.

Overall it's a good challenge. Difficult but no rage-quit due to the plentiful checkpoints.


Smooth and responsive, no glitches found on either Windows or Linux. The artwork of the game is clear and cartoony 3D, good quality but not overly artistic. The FMV is like watching TV (not flatscreen, ofc). There are a few cutscenes within the FMV which are deliberately fuzzy film snippets of cars exploding at the bottom of cliffs and suchlike. No problems at all.


It took me 7 hours to finish the story with 31% completion. Bear in mind that my controller skills are abysmal. The story is really only a means to show the player the entire town, afterwards you can continue in sandbox mode to collect further upgrades, hats, horns etc. Not to mention the achievements and mini-game leaderboards. All in all I'd say it's well worth the full asking price.


5 trading cards. 40 achievements. Steam cloud. Steam leaderboards. It's got the lot. Cross-platform is the cherry on the cake.


7 hours was more than enough for me - towards the end I was starting to find it tedious. I'm not blaming the game for this, it's just that I usually prefer some mental stimulation in my games whereas this is pure fun with no brainwork required. There's only so much fun I can take before I feel the urge to torture myself with some masochistically difficult puzzles.

This is a unique game, unlike anything else you've ever played (probably). If you like the idea of using a controller to grapple with a spinning limo then I highly recommend it, you'll have hours of fun. The many extra features flesh out the core gameplay nicely and it runs smooth as silk on all platforms.

Roundabout is simply a brilliant game. Presentation/Story/Gameplay 10/10. WARNING: This game is not for everyone... or even most people. Those who are very open minded to fresh and unique ideas, execution and gameplay will likely find a lot to love about this game. GG!
