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

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!

I passed this title a few times because the icon is a little misleading I pictured a very different game in my head. I was born in the 80s and my first console was the NES and I have been becoming a rely big fan of these older looking graphics since I played league of evil and pix n love rush both great games by the way. I just wanted to say great job developers this games is up to par with with these other great titles in its own right I hope to see more great great games like this one. Nice! Needs iphone 5 support like really bad.

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.
