Rocket Riot returns with explosive pixel art action for Windows 10 PC and Mobile
Rocket Riot, a quirky 2.5D arena shooter, has returned for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. The cartoony side-scroller, wherein players can take on over 200 levels of pixel art goodness, was originally available for Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8.1. Along with a move to the universal Windows 10 platform, Rocket Riot even packs support for input from a mouse and keyboard, Xbox controller, and, of course, touch.
Update: We should mention two other things: This game is Xbox Live enabled, so achievements! Also, you can unlock ALL the characters via an in-app purchase right now for $0.
