Rock in Code

By ZhongMing Ding

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


For every programmer,
for every cyber geek,
for everyone who once loved 8-bit Nintendo games,
for every “Matrix” fan,
“Rock in code” brings you to a legacy pixel style world of code, line by line!
Deeper and deeper!

You will play as the role of a programmer “Zimi”, break through a bunch of system code, overcome the “Bugs”, kill the “Virus”, until reaching the system kernel…

Missing a few things...

I don’t hate this game, but some instructions would be nice - as would controller support and full-screen mode.

Its a great game

This game is very fun. But the controls are kinda weird and really doesnt tell you which button is punch or kick. So just mash the keyboard, but besides that its a good game.

Challenging, UNIX-y, crazy fun.

This is an excellent game for programmers and 8-bit retro gamers. . . it's fun to read the UNIX man-pages, .cpp files, and different forms of code that you encounter while playing this game. It gets challenging soon after the first level. The controls are different, but you can view the keymapping through the pause menu. Customizable controls and a fullscreen feature would be awesome! But this really is a great game. . . reminiscent of my classic consoles and my programming classes, all at the same time.
