The Rocket Riot Begins Tomorrow

Rockets will fire, pixels will fly, and zombies, pirates, and ninja will die as Codeglue's Rocket Riot makes its way onto Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow.

THQ just announced the game's June 17th release date, which means that tomorrow sees the release of not two but three games on Xbox Live Arcade, contrary to what we might have said earlier. Rocket Riot delivers fast single and multiplayer side-view shooting action, with a stylish mix of 3D and 8-bit graphics that truly shines when you see it in motion, as you can in the trailer below. The game features 80 single player missions, along with four multiplayer modes for up to 8 players on Xbox Live or four players locally.

Check out the trailer below to see if Rocket Riot is the sort of riot you could see yourself participating in. The game will be available tomorrow for 800 Microsoft points.
