Polar Roller



    Polar Roller's review

    Published: 2014-07-19, by Peter Warrior.

    An innovative ever-running platformer

    • Accurate and thrilling gameplay
    • That music
    • Lack of tutorial, menus or settings of any kind

    "Roll must go on"

    Despite the harmless appearance of the screenshots, Polar Roller is an extremely unclassifiable game based on physics, where a ball must roll over infinite randomly generated platforms, the farther the better.

    The game starts without mercy (no menus, settings, or tips of any kind), so expect a few minutes of absolute confusion to understand what's going on. The plot thickens when you find at the upmost left corner of the screen a button titled "roll" that rolls the camera, turning your screen upside down - or any other allegedly random effect. The sphere also reacts in a different way to different kinds of platforms, and there are colored squares on your way to get temporary acceleration or defy gravity.

    Don't let your ball down even when you look stuck on a wall or the side of a platform; a tap or flick can save the game and keep you rolling.

    If you thought Flappy Bird was fifty-fifty absurd and addictive, it's because you haven't played Polar Roller.
