I admit that I’m not a big player of League of Legends, one of if not the most popular video game in the world. I don’t have anything against it, I just don’t really game on PC, and don’t really have much time to game outside of my iPhone. That said, I’ve always thought Riot was doing themselves a disservice by not being in the mobile space. League of Legends would work beautifully on an iPad, don’t you think? Well at long last Riot has arrived on the iOS platform, but unfortunately not with League of Legends. Instead we have Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup (Free), a quirky mini-game featuring League of Legends champion Blitzcrank rounding up Poros, fictional creatures from the LoL universe. Here’s a trailer.
While it’s no League of Legends, Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup is pretty cool for what it is, especially for a totally free game with no IAP. As you’re rounding up Poros you’ll come across and battle other LoL champions, so if you’re a fan of the full game then you’ll probably get a kick out of seeing them in all their 2D pixel art glory. I’m still crossing my fingers that we’ll get League of Legends on iOS someday, but there’s no reason not to check out the free Blitcrank’s Poro Roundup. The only catch is you’ll have to be quick about it, as Riot says this will only be available until September 21st.
