Launching today on Nintendo Switch is Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break, a slightly bonkers take on tower-defence from Modus Games and developers ACE Team and Giant Monkey Robot.
It's actually described as competitive tower-defence and arcade action all rolled into one. It brings back everything we liked about its predecessor, but adds a brand new level creator to take things one step further. With this, players can design their own courses and share them with others, potentially opening the door for endless creations.
Here's a feature list:
- Make & Break Worlds: Design and build your own levels in the easy-to-use editor and share your creations with players from all over the world for nearly limitless creative fun!
- Competitive Tower Defense: Build defenses and race to destroy your opponents’ in up to 4-player online multiplayer, or head-to-head in 2-player split-screen action.
- Boulder-Smashing Arcade Action: Crash your way through everything in your path as fast as you can in six distinct and arcadey game modes with over 20 zany boulders!
- Absurdly Funny: Take a ride on the wild side with ACE Team's hilarious story – everyone from Caesar and Moctezuma to Krampus and the Spaghetti Monster make an appearance in an expansive campaign across history and beyond.
- Game Modes Galore: Defend your base in the new Boulder Avalanche, perfect your rolling skills in the fragile Humpty-Dumpty Mode, race the clock in Time Trials, or create your own unique gameplay with the creator for hundreds of hours of fun!
You can go ahead and grab it from the eShop for £24.99, or you can also pick up a physical copy from select retailers. We'll have a review of this one for you as soon as we can, so feel free to keep an eye on the site if you want to read our thoughts before diving in.
Have you played past Rock of Ages games? Will you be giving this one a go? Let us know with a comment.
Looks like pretty good fun!
And this trailer came with an extra joke at the end.
I'll be buying the game on Stadia, but glad they're bringing this to Switch too. I never did pick up RoA2 on Switch when it was on heavy discounts, so uncertain how well it ran.
Will give a try
Oh cool the Switch version has split screen, I remember being disappointed that the original didn't have it.
@TossedLlama Amazon and Best Buy for sure. (I'm in the US)
@madmatt213 ...Wait, why? Everything I've heard about Stadia is that it sucks / was DoA. Not in the US, so can't try it, but is there a reason it would be your preferred 'platform' for this?
@madmatt213 you'd have to be mad to play on Stadia. Oh, wait... Just kidding dude, hope you enjoy.
The game looks fun, though. I love Tower Defense but I'm not really seeing much of it in that trailer. I'll wait for reviews.
@shazbot Pretty sure Stadia is in a lot more countries than just the US, definitely many countries in Europe.
As for why, Stadia runs on much higher-end hardware, so graphics are great (unless the developer screws up the porting to Stadia), and is definitely the best of all the current streaming services that I've tried. I hate having to own expensive hardware that take up space in my house and has loud fans. With Stadia I can play on any device I want anywhere in my house, and it runs great on my home network that it feels like the game is installed locally.
@Moon I have a much better experience playing on Stadia than my gaming PC or PS4 Pro, which is why I use the service. Streaming is the way of the future, and Google is in it for the long haul. See above comment for further elaboration.
I know that public opinion on Stadia is sour, usually without having 1st hand experience themselves, so that's why I try to mention it anywhere I can (just so folks see there are people that have a positive experience with Stadia).
If the Switch had a better internal WiFi antenna, Stadia would be great for it. Heck, it would probably be fine as-is to stream 720p to handheld mode, since Nintendo/Capcom/Ubisoft is already experimenting with gaming streaming in Japan on Switch.
@madmatt213 Yeah, because so many server farms for SE Asia are here in SG, and they're rolling out country wide 5G over the next year or so, I'm hoping it runs well locally, but not available yet.
