Rock of Ages

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Chilean independent studio ACE Team made a name for itself with Zeno Clash , an oddball game that continues to freak me out to this day. (Do not Google "Father-Mother." Don't.) These guys have garnered a reputation for producing unusual, stylish titles that aren't quite like anything else on the market. This trend continues with Rock of Ages , I'm happy to report.

Rock of Ages review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: What do Leonidas, Charlemagne, and Napoleon all have in common? Forget historical context - we squished all three of those suckers flatter than a Fruit Roll-Up with a giant boulder. We crushed Louis XIV with a herculean flaming rock - a fitting end for the Sun King - and trampled Leonardo da Vinci into a not-so-symmetrical version of the Vitruvian Man. Controlling our gargantuan rolling stone, we destroyed buildings, cows, catapults - everything in our path, really.
  • Pros: Crushing historical figures with a giant rock, Crude humor and fun charm, A decent variety of level design
  • Cons: Claustrophobic camera angles, Poorly executed tower defense mechanics, Falling off of levels repeatedly

  • Excerpt: In what’s only their second attempt, Ace Team has already created a game that defies clean classification. In their combination of relatively common conventions, each one incompatible by definition, the Chilean developer draws deeply from the dramatic style of the Theatre of the Absurd.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
30 May 2012
  • Excerpt: , you just have to accept that you’re playing a game that magically combines racing elements with real-time strategy mechanics, and drops it all into a comedic historical setting with nods to historical figures like Cronos, Napolean, Vlad the Impaler, and zombie versions of Plato and Aristotle. That alone should intrigue you. Wackiness is nigh.

Rock of Ages Review

GameZone

  • Excerpt: When you mention Atlus, you usually think of some quirky role-playing game or some project that reeks of “off the beaten path” quality, like Catherine. You wouldn’t really think of a Marble Madness-esque strategy game that dabbles in mythology. But that’s exactly what you get with Rock of Ages, a game that blissfully combines the elements of rolling destruction with strategic planning.
