Experience Space for Yourself

One of the cool things about making games is you get to make ’em about things you find interesting. Space, cowboys, robotic men – even rainbow unicorns with laser beam eyes. That’s why people love making games so much. Who doesn’t wanna make a game about something they find fascinating? We like space, for instance. One of our games, Solar Roller, is all “spacey” and cool. Why? Because space is friggin’ neat!

As if to prove how neat it is, last night, a giant space mountain (comet) flew by our heads. What’s more about this giant space mountain? That giant space mountain had its own giant space moon. So keep your eyes to the sky and maybe you’ll see some of space’s fanatical wonders for yourself in the future. If not? Turn on Solar Roller to experience them anyway. Or just play it when there isn’t anything particularly interesting whizzing by our planet.

Some levels are fairly straight forward, and others require a bit of thinking. It provides an increasing challenge for the player as you progress, giving a sense of accomplishment for ever new level completed. Continue reading Solar Roller – The Second Game from Runway Games
