Like all red-blooded American males, I spend my days sitting around thinking, "Man, I sure wish I could play a button-masher fighting game on my phone staring the one and only Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson." Today my prayers were answered in a totally extreme way. WWE has released Rockpocalypse, with The Rock himself punching and kicking his way through 18 levels of pain. Did I mention it's extreme? EXTREME!
This isn't a wrestling game, despite being published by WWE. The premise is that The Rock is on the set of his new movie (a chart-topping blockbuster, I'm sure) when suddenly everyone on the studio lot starts changing into a raving lunatic bent on destroying The Rock. The description blames all this on a mysterious pathogen, but it's also possible everyone just finished watching The Rock in "Tooth Fairy." That also turns you into a raving lunatic bent on destroying The Rock.
Rockpocalypse clocks in at 226MB in size and looks alright in the graphical department. The Rock's smooth bald head has (possibly) never looked so clear! The game is free to play, but there is the little matter of in-game coins which are used to purchase upgrades and weapons. Yeah, this seems like a vehicle for in-app purchases... extreme in-app purchases!
