The 5 iPhone and iPad games you need to play from January 2019, MacWorld

“Roterra uses a lot of familiar mechanics, but brings them all together to make an enjoyable game that’s full of surprises" AppUnwrapper

Can you find your way in a world where the ground shifts under your feet with every move? Slide and rotate cubes in this gravity-defying world to find the correct path for Princess Angelica and her friends. Flip the world and you may just discover that the journey matters far more than the destination – and that stereotypes are not to be trusted.

Betrayed by her brother Orlando and left alone in a magical forest, Princess Angelica must traverse a world of cubes to gain her rightful place as Queen. But this Princess is no damsel in distress--she has the power to literally change the world! Join Angelica on a journey of discovery as she harnesses the magic of Roterra and creates the path to her destiny.

NAVIGATE a shifting world that you can spin, rotate, even flip upside down!
SOLVE more than 80 challenging puzzles
BEHOLD stunning fairytale-inspired levels set in a world brimming with dense forests, dark caves, and giant castles
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE by switching between quirky, colorful characters
UNCOVER the full story as you progress through the kingdom of Roterra

Inspired by “Orlando Furioso,” the 16th-century Italian epic poem by Ludovico Ariosto, the constantly shifting physical world of Roterra reflects the many conflicting points-of-view in the poem. The constant changes in perspective are not only a core feature of the gameplay but the of the narrative itself, prompting players to see female agency and power in a whole new light.

Game reset

Update: the method provided by the developer worked to choose a level. It’s not the easiest method to find (I thought the yellow arrow was like a play button, not a next button). Great game with a few menu issues, but 5 stars! Original review below.

I was enjoying the game and made it to level five, when I decided to restart the level. Unfortunately the menu controls are absurd and there is no way that I could find to select a different level and it sent me back to the beginning of the game - level 1! I chose ‘continue’ after to try to get back to level 5, but it sent me back into the beginning of 1. What’s the point of playing if you’ll need to start from scratch every time you want to change levels? Very disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on Roterra. We take our players' experience very seriously and are working to address the issue you raised. In the meantime, to continue playing at level 5, select play from the main menu and use the yellow arrow keys to scroll through the levels. All levels you have unlocked are available through this method. If you are seeking to reset a puzzle without restarting the level, select "reset" from the in-game menu, which will take you back to the last save point in that level. Again, thank you for your feedback and we hope you will give Roterra another chance. If you have additional concerns or questions please don't hesitate to contact us through the support link or the playroterra website. The Roterra Team

Keeps You Interested

Like one reviewer stated, “it’s like Monument Valley on steroids”. That’s what made me give it a try, and that it had so many levels. I read through the other reviews and giggled at the one star, which compared this to Machinarium, AND, said it was too easy after only 2-3 levels. This is not even the same type of game, so you need to go elsewhere. If you like Monument Valley, you’ll love this. And, this gets harder the levels progress. You continually have to change how you look at things, which is brilliant! The Devs have done an amazing job by making it beautiful environment that changes just when you get comfy. Perfect! Bravo!

Great Puzzler Game

I don’t play a lot of games but a friend recommended this to me since it was a featured game. When I looked at the store page, the video really drew me in so I decided to buy it, and so far I am glad I did.

I am not that far into the game but some of the puzzles are throwing me for a loop. I like the art style as it sort of pulls me into another world. When a tree just pops out of the ground, that is so neat. Anyone that likes puzzles or brain teaser games will love this game set in a very unique world. Well done, you might get me playing more games now.

Developer Response ,
