As the story begins, our spherical hero, 'HotRod' was enjoying an innocent joy-roll that turned into a "misunderstanding" with the Ball-timore police force. The high speed chase is interrupted by an invasion of intergalactic robot cops trying to become the new law. Ever the hero, HotRod leaps into action on a quest to save his city and learn the true origin of the robo-menace. Play as the outlaw hero HotRod or as a colorful cast of other characters on an adventure through cities, jungles, and into the final frontier!
This game has been a lot of fun! I love that it has both "story mode" (longer levels) as well as "quick play," so there's a lot of game to get through. In addition, Swarm does a great job of showing you how to play and introducing new elements over time- it gets gradually harder without being overwhelming, making it approachable for both serious and casual gamers alike. Definitely use the tilt control- it can take some getting used to (like in any tilt control game), but calibrating it really helps and once you get the hang of it, it feels natural and really is the best way to play the game. Can't wait to see what the folks at e4 Software come out with next.
It's like Tony Hawk meets Super Monkey Ball!
Ok… I’m usually really reserved giving out my iTunes stars. Most of my ‘reviews’ have consisted of clicking 3-4 stars with an occasional one or two short blurbs… But, I really felt compelled to really describe this app. It is simply awesome! I’ve been following e4’s tweets and feeds for a few weeks and even played the open BETA version of SWARM on my PC. While really fun to play, it doesn’t compare to playing it on a tablet! Wow! You really ARE the BALL! It is very reminiscent of SMB and Tony Hawk, but with a unique flavor and feel all its own. This is my absolute favorite app, and well worth the price!
A great find!
Designed for all types of players. Plenty of replayability and a story mode that keeps you engaged. Level design is clever and solid, sound and music is enjoyable and not overly repetitive. Funny quips from the player character are much appreciated. Can't wait to play more character skins. Artwork is cohesive, clean, and concise.
A solid game and a great find!
Runs great on iPad2
