'Rock of Ages' trailer plays skittles with history
Saturday 03 September 2011
What do you get if you cross bowling with art history, medieval war machines, and Monty Python? Why, it's
Rock of Ages, a new download for Xbox 360 and soon to arrive on PC and PS3.
Players steer their chosen boulder down a windy path towards the enemy headquarters, avoiding or flattening towers, catapults, canons and raging mad cows along the way.
Hectic races towards destruction are punctuated by the placing of defenses, obstructing opponents' progress.
Mythical rock roller Sisyphus starts off proceedings in Ancient Greece, while Medieval, Renaissance, Rococo and Goyan periods serve as later backdrops for Rock of Ages' absurdities.
The game contains elements of Super Monkey Ball, Marble Madness, and the Katamari series, but Rock of Ages stands apart in its juxtaposition of flying baby heads with Michaelangelo's David.
