In this part Tower Defense, part Racing, part Art History lesson, and
all-smashing game, you'll help the Greek Titan Atlas recover the weight on his
shoulders as he runs through the ages. The problem is various famous rulers from
Art History are getting in his way. Impressionism, Surrealism, Late Gothic,
Renaissance, and more all are represented in the game, in amazing detail thanks
to the power of Unreal Engine 4.
Explore lavishly developed artistic worlds as you smash hapless enemies and
smoosh famous figures into obscurity. With new stages, characters, units, and
boulders, ROA2 is truly a bigger and boulder game than the original. Oh, and ACE
Team even beefed up multiplayer modes so more friends can now experience the
pure pleasure of rolling a large boulder down a hill and devastating everything
in sight. Play with up to four players online or locally with customizable
banners and colors for each team! Partner up with your best friend to absolutely
crush the dreams of your other two, not so best, friends in 2v2 War matches. If
you want to prove you're the hardest rock of the bunch, the free-for-all
Obstacle Course is the way to go.
