Rocket Riot is an action-packed side-view shooter featuring a bazooka-wielding jetpack soldier. Players blast their way through the environment against computer-controlled enemies in an effort to defeat the nasty pirate Blockbeard.
Bazookas, Jetpacks, Pirates…what’s not to love?

Press Quotes:
"Rocket Riot is a blast to play (quite literally" — Touch Arcade, 4/5

"Rocket Riot is undoubtedly the best side scroller to come out of the iPhone game scene as of yet." — TapScape

"The action is fast and fun, the power-ups are a joy to use...and the destructible environments give the game a unique feel." — Slide To Play, 3/4

Use the flawless touch controls to navigate through a completely destructible environment, uncover special power-ups or even burrow into different areas of the map using your bazooka as a makeshift shovel.

48 level campaign featuring everything from zombies to rocket propelled pirates! Destroy enemies in-game to unlock over 100 playable characters. Defeat giant bosses from gangs of killer bananas (seriously), to Blockbeard himself!

Destroy everything in sight with your trusty rocket launcher. Collect twenty different power-ups and power-downs from bouncing rockets to multi-missiles to ghost mode and more!

Go retro with the incredible 8-bit stylized visuals of Rocket Riot. Try three different, yet equally refined control options and find which one suits you best.

Localized for French, Italian, Spanish and German and will work on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Rocket Riot supports the very cool Fling Joystick from Ten One Design. Yeah!

What’s New

Version 1.3.2

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

When we added 32 more bits in 1.3.1, we forgot that we also needed just the 32 bits for some of the older phones. Sorry that we left you out, but you should be able to play Rocket Riot again!
(And while we were at it, we also fixed a crash issue on the iPhoneX)

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Crash issue on iOS 14.8 (iPhone XR)

Hello! I’ve been a huge fan of this game since I first saw it on the App Store. However, recently I’ve been having issues accessing the app. I open the app only to have a black screen show for a moment and then the app returns to the home screen on its own. Please fix this, I miss this game so much!

Does not work on iPad Pro with iOS 11

I have played older versions of this and it is fantastic! But it will not open on my iPad Pro. I have tried restarting the device and still no go. I tried finding support on the developers site but that was a dead end. This was a great and beautiful game. Too bad it doesn’t work.
