Rampage is a classic series of games about gigantic monsters who bash cities into ruins. Roar Rampage [$0.99] is a new iPhone game about a lone gigantic monster who bashes cities to a fine cement-y pulp, too. No doubt, there's a lot of similarities between these games at the top-level, which kinda makes Roar Rampage seem a little gross at first glance. But, if you dig a little deeper, you'll discover a Monster Vs. City game that plays with the act of ruining a city in such a neat way that you forgive it's titling and appearance.

Specifically, in Roar Rampage, you are the Gigantic Monster's arm. You guide it with a finger and swing it into buildings and helicopters, causing havoc and breakage. It's an interesting mechanic that's coupled with a physics engine capable of sending rubble flying in the direction you swung and into other objects.

Also, let's not forget that your monster, a dinosaur, is wearing punching gloves like a boss.

Eli and I gave Roar Rampage a quick look the other afternoon and walked away pretty impressed despite our initial reservations. Maybe you will, too. Check it out:

    This game is a sleeper hit. It needs more love on the front page.

  • Gamer_Kev

    Looks interesting. I used to love monster rampage type games. One thing I'd love to see is a modern remake of " Crush, Crumble and Chomp", which is probably my favorite of the old school monster games.

    God... And i got -1 like for it? Im a teenager! I dont have my card! How can i get this game huh? Happy to have a card huh? Well i dont have :((

    • MrSHakerEsq

      And neither will the developer never have a card if everyone thought like you taking all their hard work for free.

      As someone pointed out, please don't be such a cheapskate. We all have bills to pay.

        Get a grip, dude. Apps go free for a day all the time. No harm in hoping an app goes free.

      • elmazzer

        Im not saying that it need to be free.. I say that i got .. Ahh nvm

      • MrSHakerEsq

        Wow. Just because other apps are free doesn't mean that this developer should be obliged to drop his price point one cent, thus depriving his family food in their bellies.

        If you want to play with the big boys there's an entry fee. Them's the rules. Get over it.

      • Jacob Gehman

        No one is talking about "obliging" a developer to go free. No one is standing around with pitchforks and torches saying, "We refuse to buy this because we want everything free!" Well, ok, maybe there are people like that. I dunno. But that is not this case.

        We're talking about a segment of the population who doesn't have the ability to make these purchases. A developer would be grateful that these people want to play their game.

        You'd think we were talking about the dark side of jailbreaking considering your anger over this.

      • elmazzer

        My iphone is not jailbroken cuz my PC is fucckin shit.. I try to use usb but it doesnt reorganize! No sound, nothing! And... M... Is there any demo or trial version for this? This game looks really nice

      • MrSHakerEsq

        Why would or should a developer be grateful for cheapskates picking up all their hard work for free?

        I don't get up out of bed for nothing, and I strongly suspect the cheapskates don't either.

        Pay up and support our indie developers or move on. It's really that simples.
