Here is a game to look forward to this Easter! If you like games like Angry Birds, you should definitely look out for Ronnie the Rooster on Android, iOS and the web version (Google Chrome for a better experience). I was given the opportunity to take part of playing the beta version, and although I have over 40 levels to play with unlimited lives, I'm already being challenged at wave 15, argh!
Here are some teasers to show you what the game is like:
|First few waves allow players to get used to the game play|
|Wave completion. The more stars you get, the sooner you'll get a higher level trophy|
|Left: Ronnie fell down the hole!|
Players are to maneuver Ronnie (No jumping. Nope. You can't make him jump. I wish he can to make it easier haha) while he's on the move to avoid all the obstacles. The first few waves are fairly easy to let the players get used to the game play. It gets trickier in later stages, and Ronnie will sometimes speed up as well to make it more difficult.
The game is young children friendly (Ronnie will only go poof and disappear into a puff of feathers after hitting a rock, or get stuck in a hole. I'm not sure what will happen when he meets the fox though, but I'm sure it'll be similar to when he hits a rock), graphics is adorable and music is really cheerful.
|Missing all the corns because of getting intimidated by the number of holes. This road require serious road work!|
Right: Passed after several attempts!
|You can get more lives by buying them or get them free by doing certain simple tasks|
Players can also buy lives from the shop.
|What you can expect from further waves (the foxes aren't my main concern.. how DO you get pass all that?!)|
Right: Who said trophy has to stop at Gold?
Abby and Clay both had a go at the game, and they both love how cute it is. Some comments from them are:
"Awwwww look at that fat chicken!" (It's a rooster)
*laughs* "Why is he rushing into a rock!"
(Both laughs out loud when Ronnie fell into a hole)
However, Abby struggles a bit to get pass wave 5. She was very eager to try though!
I do think that, although it's children friendly and young children (before and including early KS2) will find it attractive and fun to play, the game will be more playable for those slightly older, and I'm sure the adults will love the challenge too! It's a very good game to practise children's motoring skill though, and the kids have been going back to playing similar games over and over again, so Ronnie the Rooster is definitely a keeper.
It is currently advertised that it will have over 50 levels, and we can expect it to release in time for this Easter. You can take a look at the trailer here, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and/ or Instagram for updates.
