Rock of Ages 2 boulders onto Steam

Rock of Ages was a mad, brilliant game about rolling a boulder through historic scenery, bashing down turrets and avoiding cannon fire until you careered into your enemy's base. Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder [official site] – which came out this week – is a more extravagant take on the same formula. Its new boulders have special traits (one glows red hot and then explodes, for example), the…

Rock Of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder Rolls Out This Year

It's quite nice when a videogame comes along with a pun smack bang in the middle of its title - it makes crafting a witty/cringy/puntastic headline that wee bit easier. It's also quite nice when that game is a sequel to boulder-rolling comedy action-puzzle-strategy sort-of tower defence 'em up Rock of Ages. Five years on from the release of its forerunner, Rock of Ages 2:…

Downhill Battle: Rock Of Ages Free All Weekend

I sometimes wonder what life would be like if I was a rock. What would I do if someone stepped on me? How would I wear my moss? Which historical art period would I most enjoy bulldozing if it were tastefully reimagined with a few extra elephants running amok? To its credit, ACE Team's Rock of Ages does its best to simulate all concerns relevant…

Rock Of Ages Develops Christmas Cheer

Father Christmas is a very lazy man. He works one day a year, and spends the rest of his time just sitting there, judging children. What a prick. His elves are the real heroes, and are woefully undersung. For instance, they're zooming around everywhere, adding Christmas cheer wherever they can. Even reaching the obscurity of ACE Team's Rock Of Ages. Now featuring snowballs. You can…

Feature: Bouldering Me Over

Rock Of Ages review

What would Chilean crazy-maestros Ace Team do after their mind-curdling FPS melee game, Zeno Clash? Well, it should have been obvious: they set about creating, Rock Of Ages, a competitive boulder-rolling comedy action-puzzle-strategy game set within several centuries of art history. Yep, it was an open niche, and they rolled right in there. It's out now, and I'm going to have to tell you Wot…

Not Waiting Ages For Rock Of Ages

Rock of Ages is a game RPS has been terribly excited about for quite some time. Why? Well, because it's about rolling a giant, apparently sentient and sadistic boulder through art, history and the history of art, with graphics by someone doing a very convincing Terry Gilliam impression. VIDEOGAMES! Our desperate anticipation for this next game from the Zeno Clash madmen should soon be over…

Rock Of Ages Rolls Over Art, Wizards

Ace dev team ACE Team have released a new trailer for their boulder-rolling history-of-art puzzle game, Rock Of Ages, and it shows the ball in action, doing funnies. Previously we saw power ups which embue your happy rolling rock with temporary powers, such as being tough, or being on fire, and there's some of these here, too. If only life had temporary power ups beyond…

Super Clunky Ball: Rock Of Ages Videos

It really is about time we caught up on Rock Of Ages trailers, don't you think. The next game from the mad geniuses behind Zeno Clash, ACE Team, is a combination of tower defence and Marble Madness, because that's the way those people think. And there's lots of bits of the Pythonesque madness to look at below, including a ten minute walkthrough of how it…

Ace Team Talk Rock Of Ages

Ace Team, the Chilean studio behind the fantastically unusual first person beat 'em up Zeno Clash, are now making a game that combines bowling with art history. It's called Rock Of Ages, and it's a game of two halves. One half is that of a boulder crashing around destroying stuff, the other is about defending things from that errant ball of rock. Sounds suitably strange,…

Lost Marbles: Rock Of Ages

The next game from Zeno Clash creators Ace Team, which will be coming out on the PC as well as the TV fun extenders in early 2011, is Rock Of Ages. It looks delightfully batshit awesome, as you can see from the most recent trailer, which I've totally gone and embedded right below these words. Said trailer shows a selection of things that the rock…

Ace!: Ace Team Announce Rock Of Ages

Also looking awesome this week: the next game from the Chilean team who gave us weirdo biff 'em up Zeno Clash. It's called Rock Of Ages and it appears to be a mixture of strategy game and, er, bowling? Two opposing castles attempt to crush each other in surrealistic rock-rolling warfare with defences constructed turn by turn to defend against the heinous stone attack. If…
