App description: Rocket Riot is an action-packed side-view shooter featuring a bazooka-wielding jetpack soldier. Players blast their way through the environment against computer-controlled enemies in an effort to defeat the nasty pirate Blockbeard.
Bazookas, Jetpacks, Pirateswhats not to love?

Press Quotes:
"Rocket Riot is a blast to play (quite literally" Touch Arcade, 4/5

"Rocket Riot is undoubtedly the best side scroller to come out of the iPhone game scene as of yet." TapScape

"The action is fast and fun, the power-ups are a joy to use...and the destructible environments give the game a unique feel." Slide To Play, 3/4

Use the flawless touch controls to navigate through a completely destructible environment, uncover special power-ups or even burrow into different areas of the map using your bazooka as a makeshift shovel.

48 level campaign featuring everything from zombies to rocket propelled pirates! Destroy enemies in-game to unlock over 100 playable characters. Defeat giant bosses from gangs of killer bananas (seriously), to Blockbeard himself!

Destroy everything in sight with your trusty rocket launcher. Collect twenty different power-ups and power-downs from bouncing rockets to multi-missiles to ghost mode and more!

Go retro with the incredible 8-bit stylized visuals of Rocket Riot. Try three different, yet equally refined control options and find which one suits you best.

Localized for French, Italian, Spanish and German and will work on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Rocket Riot supports the very cool Fling Joystick from Ten One Design. Yeah!

Yes, was a good Xbox Live game. Is anything different in this version or just a port? But eh, a buck and universal means bought regardless.

Reminds me of a cross between Liero and Voxatron. Now all it needs is multiplayer?
