Contrary to popular belief Riot Games actually has other games that aren’t League of Legends! One that is totally free at that!
Riot gives us a super-fun side-scrolling game following Blitzcrank, one of the available champions in League of Legends, and a loving herd of Poros. Poros are a race of totally cute magical balls of fur made of truth, valor, and innocence. Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup is a simple enough game with a story that kids of all ages would love.
The main idea of the game is to save the cute lovable balls of fur from the giant horror from the rivers of Summoner’s Rift that is the three-headed Baron Nashor! Help Blitzcrank shoo the Poros away from Baron by bumping into them to push them forward or to use Blitzcrank’s Rocket Grab to keep them safe in his robot body.
The controls are simple: tap on the left side of the screen to move Blitz up or down and tap on the right to grab the Poro. Miss a Poro and lose a life; when all your lives are gone you become food for Baron!
Play the story mode long enough and you run into other champions from League that are either running away from Baron or just purposefully making your life difficult!
looking at you Jinx and Singed Beating them is easy: avoid their skill shots, grab them, bop them and leave them for Baron to eat!
Saving the Poros and beating other champions grants you gold which you can use to upgrade your skills! The gold you get can also be used for the favorite purchase of any League of Legends player: SKINS! Get to choose among the popular skins for Blitz
RUSTY BLITZCRANK IS STILL NOT AVAILABLE
Beat Blitzcrank’s story and you get to unlock the other pulling Champions like
Blitz2.0 Thresh and Nautilus!
And … Corki!?
Overall, this is a pretty simple game and really easy to pick-up. Aside from the initial download, Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup won’t need to use your internet. The visuals are fun and it’s a refreshing change of scenery from all the war and fighting we do on Summoner’s Rift. The story is short and sweet but has enough content to keep you playing for days and the skins and other champions bring a little meat to the game. I’d rate this game a 9/10 only because it doesn’t compel me to play it more than League of Legos! *loads up ranked queue*
