Recess Riot



    Recess Riot's review

    Published: 2013-07-11, by Peter Warrior.

    An insane playground game

    • Easy and addictive
    • Cool retro design
    • It needs more games

    "School's been blown to pieces"

    In Recess Riot, your pixelated and customizable youngster must endure a series of trials of skill and valor such as jump the rope, dodge balls and juggle with a soccer ball. Of course, this would be easier if not all your classmates wanted to send you to the infirmary at the slightest chance throwing hammers, spiked balls and all kinds of harmful stuff.

    Game controls are as easy as tap where indicated, and results depend on your reflexes. It's quite challenging, and every time you lose you'll be "awarded" with bullying sentences as "you suck" and so on, so perhaps we should say that whis game isn't suited for children as it might seem at first glance.

    However, just three stages might not be enough, and we believe that it needs far more levels.

    From the creators of the cult hit game Super Mega Worm, comes a new and fresh arcade game.

    Recess Riot is an unique and challenging Action/Arcade game comprised of multiple game modes.

    3 Different Game Modes:

    This mode is a timing based jump rope game with a twist. Ropers will change rope speed and patterns. Ropers will also shift left and right to keep the players on their toes. Advance stages will require players to jump rope and dodge incoming objects simultaneously.

    This mode is a refreshing action game where you dodge dangerous objects while smashing away incoming dodge balls, basketballs, footballs, and more.

    In this mode you juggle a soccer ball for as long as you can while dodging and smashing incoming objects.

    • Multiple action packed game types.
    • 3 difficulty levels each.
    • Endless stages.
    • Stylized 8-bit pixel art.
    • Tons of retro game system skins.
    • Full chiptune soundtrack.
    • Fully customizable character colors.
    • Huge selection of hats and head gear.
    • Leader boards and Achievements.
    • Fully integrated iCade Controls.
