Rocket Riot



Synopsis
Strap on your bazooka soldier, and get ready for the new and improved mobile version of the awesome action-packed side-view shooter Rocket Riot.

Navigate through a completely destructible environment, uncover special power-ups, or even burrow into different areas of the map. The map regenerates, keeping the action fast-paced, but time doesn't heal all wounds.

Reviews

"I'm not gonna lie: I briefly thought about running out of the place, firmly gripping an LG phone loaded with Windows Phone 7, after just a few minutes with Rocket Riot. " - Joystiq

"Even when you have blown your way through all 48 levels, you will still go back through them for more chances to shoot everything in sight & watch as the world & enemies alike, erupt around you like fireworks!" - BestWP7Games

"Regardless, the gameplay for the arcade titles seemed excellent, with frame rates holding fast even during graphically intensive 3D sequences (such as the chaotic, scattered-pixel play of Rocket Riot)." - Engadget

"already found my "angry birds replacement" for windows phone 7 it is Rocket Riot, so awesome!!!!!!" - twitter.com/jaykruer
