Roundhouse is a violent sold-at-less rockstar who got banned from a band after raising a ruckus on the stage in one of their massive concerts. Now he's trying his luck in other business but his violent behavior has come with him. Wherever he ends up, problems and fights follow them. You cannot change Roundhouse but, at least, you can avoid him getting beaten up.
Thus, you will guide Roundhouse through different locations: concert's stage, Mariachi restaurant, police department, etc. fighting enemies with tooth and nail. There are actually two different game modes: "Story mode" (campaign), in each level a given amount of waves must be born and a final bosses defeated. After completing a level on Story Mode, it will be available to play in Endless mode which is a the-longer-you-last-the-better mode.
Roundhouse is controlled with a screenpad including both directional buttons and attack buttons. In addition, some special attacks will be unlocked as you progress, so you will have to also make use of screentouch gestures (swipe, flick...) to launch them. Although is easy to get the hang of it, screenpad should be revamped regarding design and response.
The game is set in 8-bit retro graphics, side-view, arcade style. Fans of the old-school titles will enjoy it to the fullest: it reminds the original Street Fighter and Streets of Rage, even though the gameplay is slightly different. Electro soundtrack also brings you back to eighties.
Roundhouse is fully integrated with Gamecenter achievements and online leaderboards.
