Description

Immerse yourself in this circular adventure filled with big and mean balls. ROTO is a fresh take on the puzzle-platformer genre with its ultra simple gameplay accompanied by neat and minimal greyscale art style that will test your reflexes and will make you stick to it until you complete all the levels and meet all the balls. The game offers a simple one tap control and using that, the player has to jump across different rotatory platforms, collecting stars, avoiding deadly obstacles and unlocking more levels as you go.

History

ROTO was developed a group of college friends from a design college in a 24-hour game jam called 'Global Game Development Competition. After winning the 'Honorable Mention' award in its category, the team decided to work upon the game to release it commercially on mobile platforms under the label Lucid Labs.

Features

  • A unique and simple one-tap gameplay which gets challenging over time (even your granny could play it but can't complete it).
  • A minimalist and clean art style adding to the simplicity as well as annoyance of the game.
  • Sound Design by Ashley Read - guy behind the sound design of Watch Dogs and The Crew.
  • 5 Level Packs with over 150 levels offering new and bigger balls.
  • A Free-to-play monetization model that focuses more on player's ability to play than his ability to pay.
