Though some complained that Rock of Ages was a one-time playthrough, the Ace Team managed to make a game that was laugh-out-loud funny, and not just on paper, and unlike too many games that strove for wit, getting comedic timing right is one of the toughest feats to accomplish. This modern take on Marble Madness not only combines wit with some legitimate gaming fun, but adds some history lessons to the fiasco. A popular standout, Rock of Ages crashes into our top ten for 2011.
“Strategy, gravity and the ability to squish Monty Python-esque cutouts, all the while surrounded by stirring historical art and period-inspired music. What more could one ask? Game Creators Ace Team have bowled up a solid strike.
Rock of Ages is gorgeous visuals, devious opponents and wicked strategic elements all rolled up in a ball. For a mere $10, you too can bowl over the world of art history.” from the review by Callabrantus
