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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price! December 26, 2012

I don't buy many Apps, but I just had to try this when it was made available for Android. I used to be an avid console and PC gamer, but I just don't have the time anymore. This game allowed me to scratch the itch of a fun, frenetic arcade experience on my phone.

The gameplay is basic enough -- use your device's accelerometer to steer a spherical protagonist, Hot Rod, around a course to collect coins and avoid obstacles. As you progress, more challenges are added, like small enemy characters that chase you down and deplete your health. To destroy them, you must trick them into destroying themselves on obstacles like lava pits and electric fences. The game also features dash pads that cause Hot Rod to race in whichever direction they're pointing. The more coins you collect in a shorter amount of time, the more stars you earn.

At first I was worried that the platforming would be frustrating, but thankfully the developers built in tilt sensitivity controls and forgiving, beveled architecture on the courses to prevent many accidental falls. Even if you do make a fatal misstep, the game places you mercifully back on solid ground while deducting a nominal amount of health. It's like Sonic Adventure if it were built by people who didn't hate the players.

The design work has the bubbly, kinetic, arcade feel of classic PSX and Dreamcast platformers like Crash Bandicoot and Jet Grind Radio. Characters and environments are highly stylized but ooze with personality. It's unfortunate that I had to squint to see some of the finer details considering I was playing from a phone.

I played this on a Motorola Droid Razr Maxx and it performed quite smoothly.

I'm having a blast with this game. It reminds me a little bit of Sonic, Mario, and Marble Madness rolled (bah dum chh!) into one. A definite recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, yet brilliant! December 25, 2012
By Japtar

SWARM! is a ball-roller where you tilt to roll the character, and tap on the screen to jump. It's a very simple and responsive control scheme. Yet, from such simple controls comes a surprisingly complex and thoroughly entertaining game. SWARM! slowly adds new mechanics to significantly spice up the action. Plus, the lemmings-like enemies are absolutely funny!

Totally recommend for anyone who loves action games!
