R.O.F.F.L.E. – Blazingly Destructive!! [rating: 2.5/5]
R.O.F.F.L.E is the latest in an ever growing line of stick games to hit the app Store and like so many others the the main theme of this game is to kill, kill and kill some more.
The point of this stick game developed by Red Cabana Studios is to complete 17 achievements which in turn unlock 9 weapons which you can then use against the unlimited number of enemy stick men that are yours to toy with.
The unlocking of these achievements is completed across three different maps which can be described in 1 word, bleak! Bleak in the sense that they just use a collection of platforms with sporadic ‘features’ placed around the landscape in order for you to perform specific kills.
And it’s the method of the kills that will unlock the achievements and weapons, for example if you want to unlock the grenade launcher you’ll need to complete two achievements. The first will require you to kill 3 enemies with your SMG and 2 with your shotgun, twice while the second one will require you to kill 25 enemies by drowning.
Performing the kills is relatively simple. Your stick character will be placed in the middle of the chosen map and from there you have the ability to move left, right and jump using the keys in the bottom left and right hand corner of the screen. Touching anywhere on the screen will cause you to kick, shoot or perform the action of the weapon you are equipped with at the time.
Unlike many other games you are also in control of the enemies which you can cause to spawn at anytime you like so that you can per morn the necessary method of execution on them. Because there is no time limit and the fact that the enemies don’t fight back the game feels more like it’s in permanent practice mode as the only urgency in the game is the speed to which you wish to unlock all of the achievements.
If a scoring system is added, additional maps or a variety of enemies is added then this could be an entertaining game, otherwise while there are moments of entertainment as you attempt to kill the enemies in a variety of ways R.O.F.F.L.E, which stands for Running On Floor Feeling Like Evil, is ultimately unsatisfying.
