Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder on Nintendo Switch cranks up the surrealism and gameplay to be, well… BIGGER AND BOULDER. With an emphasis on the chaotic new 2-vs-2 multiplayer, new periods, and improved graphics, physics, and destructibility powered by Unreal Engine 4, players will need to be ready for some intense rocking and rolling.
The core gameplay for Rock of Ages 2 hasn’t changed from the original game released back in 2011. You play as Atlas, who has lost the sphere and until he gets it back must roll boulders down a hill into castles.

You take control of the boulder as it rolls down the hill. But be careful or traps and obstacles put in place by the opponent. You can then watch them roll they boulder as you set your traps and gadgets. These can range from walls and cannons to the Python-Esq like whales and vacuum cleaners. These weird and bizarre gadgets are unlocked through the single-player campaign.
The boulders can be customized to be armored, light enough to fly over obstacles or a wheel which is the fastest way to travel. Each opponent is represented by a 2D picture, which harkens back to Python comedy animations. The story is something I look forward to watching, as comic writing is good.
This is such a unique style of game, and not one I have seen before. The mix of Python, renaissance art and characters make for a surreal experience. The gameplay is solid and easy to pick up. Though there isn’t much difference between the original except for multiplayer. I will say that on the Switch this a great ball of fun. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews.
