Spinning maze game launching today for the iPhone.
For Immediate Release:
29th September 2008
Tag Games today launched Rock’n’Roll, it's first title for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. A super-charged combination of action and puzzling that is sure to set the Apple AppStore alight and delight players across the globe!
Rock’n’Roll is a classic story of friendship and kidnapping! You play ‘Roll’, a rather well-rounded character, who must enter the spinning mazes of Flint Island to recover the Evil Sky Spirit's musical notes and save his best friend ‘Rock’ from imprisonment.
Rock’n’Roll is an incredibly simple game to pick up and play, with a unique 'twist'. Players rotate the entire maze left and right using either the iPhone's motion-sensing or touch controls and using the power of gravity, Roll falls towards the bottom of the screen – whatever direction it happens to be! Collect all the musical notes within each maze to escape to the next one. Finish them all and the Evil Sky Spirit just might release Rock.
Tag managing director Paul Farley says, “We are delighted to bring our much-loved casual game Rock’n’Roll to iPhone and iPod Touch players. We think that Rock’n’Roll’s combination of unique motion controlled game-play, cartoon visuals and tongue-in-cheek humour will be a great hit with players around the world!”
“This is an exciting time for Rock’n’Roll. Globalfun is rolling out the mobile version to carriers across Europe and SkyZone continue to extend the game's popularity in North America. We hope players everywhere will see a lot more of our intrepid heroes ‘Rock’ and ‘Roll’ in the coming months.”
Rock’n’Roll features 30 crazy mazes to attempt over three stunning environments – Coral Reef, Jungle and Mountain Top. Two game modes provide both quest and race against the clock challenges, giving both quickly accessible gameplay and longer term replay value.
The game features an original mix of traditional Rock’n’Roll music that reflects both the humorous nature of the game and the visual setting of each environment.
