Every second of this game is crafted to give players the smoothest and most appealing experience possible and it doesn't disappoint. All the original elements of the game are still there: tilting, rolling and jumping. But now there are plenty of new features to keep the game moving and give users a brand new experience. Tactics like floating or sinking, springboards and user-controlled platforms must be used to transport your rolandos to their goal.
