Rollerdrome has a striking comic-book art style and paired with its kick-ass reveal trailer (seen two paragraphs below), I was instantly intrigued. Visually it’s most comparable to Sable, but the gameplay is a mix of Tony Hawk and 2009’s under-talked-about Wet. And although the reveal had plenty of talk about multiplayer, Rollerdome is a single-player-focused affair, though there are scoreboards to chase friends with high scores.
The gameplay is fast and easy to lose yourself in, like all good arcade sports games; just as the aforementioned Tony Hawk games had 10-level goals to complete, so does Rollerdrome. These include specific high scores, performing tricks at certain locations, and collecting the games equivalent to ‘S-K-A-T-E. But the big twist is that Rollerdrome has guns and people shooting guns at you.
