If you like games where you smash and destroy things, then you’ll definitely need to check out Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder. The game’s main task is to roll a large stone boulder to destroy your enemy’s castle, with enemy defenses present to slow down the boulder’s velocity and make it harder to win.

Rock of Ages II evokes different time periods with each mission, making use of improved graphics courtesy of Unreal Engine 4. A new mode is also available, and will keep you entertained for hours on end: a chaotic 2-vs-2 multiplayer mode allows you to team up with another player and roll two boulders down your to your enemies’ castles.

If you skipped art classes at school, you’ll be sorry now as the games takes you to the greatest art periods in history, from the Egyptian to the Renaissance eras.

Here are the details of the game:

  • The Monty Python-esque humor is turned up to 11, as players literally rock and roll through the ages. Humorous animated vignettes will also make a return in full force, so famous historical figures beware!

  • An Emphasis on Multiplayer – A little friendly competition never hurt anyone, so that’s why ACE Team decided to improve the multiplayer feature of the game. Play with up to four players online in a 2v2 match to the death with the ability to customize banners and colors for your “units.” Oh, and did we mention that opposing tracks can now intersect each other?

  • A Positively Absurd Art Style – Just like in the original game, ACE Team has created various levels inspired by the greatest art periods in history. Players will gaze upon exquisite art from the Egyptians, Late Gothic and Early Renaissance era, Surrealist movement, as they carve a path of destruction with their rolling rocks of doom!

  • Improved Physics and Destructible Environments – With upgraded physics and even more things to be cracked, crushed, flattened, and slammed, rolling various rocks down a hill has never been a more pleasant experience!

  • Utter Chaos – With the addition of brand new defensive units and unique boulders with special traits, chaos reigns supreme so be sure not to take each turn for granite.

For the time being, there is no information available about its price.
