Rocket Riot


Rocket Riot is an action-packed side-view shooter featuring a bazooka-wielding jetpack soldier. With a highly stylized 8-bit era feel, players blast their way through the environment against enemies or multiplayer foes online. Navigating through a completely destructible environment, players can uncover special power ups or even burrow into different areas of the map.


  • Engage in 80 single player missions, set in many different themes and zany worlds.
  • A fully featured multiplayer Riot with 4 multiplayer modes against up to 8 players on Xbox Live or up to 4 players on a single screen. Teamed based CTF has never been so explosive!
  • Fly through continuously regenerating maps that keep the action fast-paced - but time doesn’t heal all wounds.


Rocket Riot is immensely charming with some light-hearted gameplay behind it that makes for some exciting multiplayer battles.

Rocket Riot is simple arcade fun candy coated with brilliant pixel art. The destructible environments allow for some highly enjoyable chaos in both single- and multiplayer modes.

It’s kind of like Peggle, which is a game that anyone can play and understand, but is challenging to master. ... I recommend it highly for those needing something to tide them over through the summer.

I think this is going to be the XBLA sleeper hit of the year.
