Once upon a time, a daring princess defied stereotypes and took her fate into her own hands.
Roterra is a unique puzzle game about shifting perspective, set in a magical world where “up” is relative. Roterra uses a new game mechanic unlike anything you’ve played before.
Tap, press and swipe to guide Princess Angelica to the exit of 80 hand-crafted puzzles. You may have to flip the world on its head to traverse this realm of cubes, transforming trees into pathways, flat walls into staircases and revealing a new path at every turn.
Take your time and plan your moves: in this perception-challenging world, things are rarely as they seem, and the correct path is often not the most obvious one.
Puzzles have multiple solutions, so you can play over and over: “I am on my eighth trip through this game and am still finding more to love!” (Apple Reviewer). Can you find the rock spiders and other uniquely Roterran monuments?
---STORY OF ROTERRA---
Roterra is a puzzle game about looking beyond the surface and changing perception. Angelica a willowy young girl in a world of hulking knights, is no damsel in distress: she controls powerful magic that allows her to manipulate the terrain to suit her purposes.
Betrayed and abandoned in the forest, Angelica’s inner turmoil is reflected in the jumbled physical environment where paths don’t connect. As she overcomes these obstacles, she becomes empowered and learns that often the only way forward is to change your perspective.

Roterra, Soothing and maddening all at the same time!
I loved this. It is the impossible angles with a twist kind of puzzle with soothing music and settings. I admit that several of the puzzles towards the end drove me crazy in a good way. You just have to step back and look at it again with a fresh eye. I know there are even “helps”, cute little plants or marks but with a brain injury that actually sent me off in a weird path. The hubby said it was logical (I am not) so I kept them up for the garden alone. The developers also offer other “help” when needed..WOO HOO....they actually care enough to see everyone through this if needed. I was able to finish with only a long stretches and it was a great way to relax (doing something difficult IS my way of having fun). I love the impossible physics type games...reminds me of me. I SO hope another setting or chapter will be in the works. I want to sign up now! Thank you to all who made this delightful treat! I used to do closed game testing and it is always noticeable when the game team have created a flawless little treat for us. Thanks for the time it took to be away from family while getting this out to us. “More please?” Oh, I know you are also educators, this was great fun for someone who also has dyslexia (I think that actually helps) and ADHD AND was a teacher). THANK YOU
Developer Response ,
That is quite the review you shared with the community and we love it. We really appreciate you sharing all of your experiences with the game and the joy it delivered. Thank you for explaining that the game was fun for someone with dyslexia. While we did not specially test for that, it is great to know that the mechanics work for those players. We are greatly thankful to hear you found Roterra flawless and a delightful treat, especially from someone that has been a game tester. Please follow us on social media or join our community list to keep up to date on news about updates and a potential sequel. Have a wonderful day.
The Roterra Team.
Update: the method provided by the developer worked to choose a level. It’s not the easiest method to find (I thought the yellow arrow was like a play button, not a next button). Great game with a few menu issues, but 5 stars! Original review below.
I was enjoying the game and made it to level five, when I decided to restart the level. Unfortunately the menu controls are absurd and there is no way that I could find to select a different level and it sent me back to the beginning of the game - level 1! I chose ‘continue’ after to try to get back to level 5, but it sent me back into the beginning of 1. What’s the point of playing if you’ll need to start from scratch every time you want to change levels? Very disappointing.
Developer Response ,
Updated Response - We have fully implemented an easier way for users to choose levels they have unlocked in the menu as part of the 1.01 update. It is very simple and we appreciate your input.
Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on Roterra. We take our players' experience very seriously and are working to address the issue you raised. In the meantime, to continue playing at level 5, select play from the main menu and use the yellow arrow keys to scroll through the levels. All levels you have unlocked are available through this method. If you are seeking to reset a puzzle without restarting the level, select "reset" from the in-game menu, which will take you back to the last save point in that level. Again, thank you for your feedback and we hope you will give Roterra another chance. If you have additional concerns or questions please don't hesitate to contact us through the support link or the playroterra website. The Roterra Team
In a word, Sensational.
Beautifully functional graphics, easy learning curve, smooth movement control and to my great pleasure, an incredibly high level of re-playability. Well worth the price as it has lots of levels (20, I think, but I may be wrong) and goes from relatively simple to incredibly complex. First time through took me a while...a long, satisfying experience. But in my case, never too hard to eventually get right. And the graphics really are beautiful, especially the waterfalls and the green glow in the “dungeon” levels.
On nearly every level of this game, what seemed impossible led to an “Aha!” moment and a great sense of accomplishment. Well Done! More please...😺
Addendum: I am on my eighth trip through this game and am still finding more to love! And yes, guys, FOUND THE ROCK SPIDERS!!! Truly engrossing and rewarding game. Again I say well done! Sequel? Bonus levels? Action figures?😺
I don’t do social media so I’ll skip the stickers 😺 but thanks! I certainly FEEL like your number one fan! You make more levels and continue being clever and I’ll keep playing...keep up the great work!

Thank you so much for your review, you made our day! We're especially thrilled that you enjoyed replaying as our favorite thing is finding new ways to solve the puzzles. We're so glad you enjoyed our bioluminescent cave rivers--did you find the rock spiders? Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts.
UPDATED 4/3/19: I think we found what might be our #1 Fan :-) - We loved hearing that you have played this 8 times through and found more love every time. I hope you have found our sticker pack on the App store for Roterra so you can share some the game in messages with friends(best we can do for action figures for now). More levels? Let's just say our puzzle designers are at work. Reach out to us directly at playroterra.com if you want to continue the conversation or contact us on social media. You have made our day!!!!
