Description

Crazy high-speed endless thing-dodging in an 8-bit arcade style. Dodge the rocks and other projectiles coming your way for as long as possible. Dodge, dash, kick and smash your way out of tight spots to survive just one more wave. Discover and master advanced moves to rack up your bonus and climb the online leaderboards, before testing yourself against the next difficulty level. Are you ready for NIGHTMARE? We don't think you are.

History

Dodgy Rocks began as a Power Rangers(tm) fan game made for the lead developer's son. Growing from a game jam intended to create something the entire family could play, the game has been greatly enhanced to offer deeper mastery and gameplay to challenge even the most skillful gamers. But the core idea remains - dodge EVERYTHING!

Features

  • High-speed endless arcade thing-dodging
  • 8-bit style
  • Multiple difficulty levels to suit all abilities
  • Global online high-score table for the best dodgers
  • Secret mechanics to discover and master

About nivrig

Boilerplate
A Respawned 80s Game Developer from Northern Ireland who got bored writing insurance software for other people and decided to misspend some more years in much the same way as he misspent much of his youth: making games.
