Rock Blocker [Everplay] - Prepare to get Rock Blocked

Hey there! We are hard at work on Ace of Blades, but we have taken on another smaller project in the mean time as part of our "retro revival" series.

Rock Blocker is a modern take on the retro space shooter, similar to Asteroids but with a large dose of modern mechanisms, multiple game modes, control options, and awesome music!

Release Date: Early February

Price: Free at Launch for 1 or 2 days then $.99

IAP?: Yes. We know IAP is a touchy point, but its simply to upgrade your ship quicker. This game is designed to be VERY hardcore/challenging. Everything is available without spending ANYTHING on IAP. Its simply an extra option to those who want it.

Here is a goofy somewhat fan made teaser trailer:

Early App Challenge: If you have a catchphrase that is...humorous...for Rock Blocker, we'd love to hear it! The Top 5 will receive an early promo code. :-)

A game harder than the titular rock.

I tried my best

Well I have absolutely no idea what's going on in those screenshots, but I am intrigued by this. I have recently taken a liking to Asteroids, so perhaps this would be a good game to pursue that liking!

Do you have any videos of the game in action?

Okiedoke! Looking forward to it

You should change the main ship into a rooster, so that you can use the tagline: "Rock out with your cock out"

P.S. Mods, please don't ban me. Roosters, gentlemen!

Not often do you hear someone taken a liking to a game that predates virtually all games! But glad to hear it and hope you get a chance to try out Rock Blocker.

Remember - It will be free for 1 day at launch, so grab it then if you wanna save $1.
