The Rock of Ages (RoA) series currently has two fully released 3D games, in the RTS genre that combines the elements of tower defense, arcade racing (!) and platformer. It is developed by the small indie team from Chile called ACE Team. The publisher of two parts is Atlus. RoA has been announced during E3 2010. The title was released much later – on September 7, 2011, on all playable platforms of those days. The second part of the franchise called Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder has been released 6 years later, on August, 29, 2017. The project turned out to be very successful on Steam. That is why the developers promised to release the third part very soon.
During this game you play as a boulder, i.e. giant boulder, that has to destroy enemy’s towers. Players also need to place the strategic objects on the current map in order to prevent the destruction of your own tower defense. During this game you play as a boulder, i.e. giant rock, that has to destroy enemy’s towers. Gamers also need to place the strategic objects on the current map in order to prevent the destruction of your own tower defense. In the first part RoA, all battles occur between two players who make moves in the certain sequence. The map is a large, sometimes it is a “corridor” curved in the several directions, with different landscapes and obstacles to overcome. Sometimes the map is a lowland in the center or along the edges. On the opposite edges of the map are two strongholds. The goal of all players is to destroy the opponent’s citadel.
The storyline of this indie title is simply mad. Despite the fact that you play as a massive rock, the main protagonist is Sisyphus. Do you remember that popular myth about rolling the huge balls (no pun intended)? The plot takes place in different historical epochs like Romanticism, Renaissance, Rococo, Gothic, etc. Depending on the time during which the battle takes place, the visual style of the game changes as well dialogue between various historic personas. The visual style really stands out due to other RTS games. The whole surface of the landscape is divided into small “clusters”, where you can build different objects and obstacles. In addition, the game has a system of destructible objects, like the destruction of buildings and fortifications.
What is New in Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder?
The sequel is a really bigger version of the first part that allows to enjoy more hilarious historic references to Ancient Mythology of Greece and Rome, Renaissance, Barocco, etc. Kings, queens and other famous personas of these historic epochs will gather to become your friends and enemies. And no matter if you are a school student or a top manager, the title makes it awesome for every player to destroy the hostile towers with a huge boulder. Especially, if you are into the surreal Monty-Pythonish humor. The maps also became better and vaster. Some gamers say that the music and sounds have also improved compared to the first part. It is recommended to download both parts and compare available features of RoA.
RoA is really funny to play for a few evenings, especially, if you enjoy the coop and multiplayer modes. And you can crash the elephant with a massive boulder! How awesome is that!
