Berlin (dpa / tmn) – Friends of weird British humor will certainly remember the series “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” from the early 1970s. Part of this TV show were absurd cartoons with a very special style – they looked like someone was moving cut-out images in front of a camera.
The game “Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break” bows to this peculiar animation, with cut scenes in the same style and with similar humor. And apart from these videos, the game by the Chilean developers ACE Team and Giant Monkey Robot is no less absurd.
Breakneck curves and mean traps
As in the previous game, the focus of the game is a wild journey through time, from the beginnings of mankind through antiquity to the Middle Ages. The player controls a rolling stone, which he has to roll over a course full of breakneck curves and commonly placed obstacles in the shortest possible time in order to destroy an opponent’s fortress in the end.
This basic principle comes in several modes: Sometimes there is a race against time, then again with a computer-controlled opponent. And sometimes the player not only has to complete a course himself, but at the same time protect his own fortress with traps and obstacles.
Duel among friends
In this way, the funny, bizarre rolling ball turns into a tricky strategy game. These duels can of course not only be played with the computer, but also with other players, online or offline.
“Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break” costs around 30 euros, has no age limit and is now available for PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
