Why so glum, chum? Need something hipper to make you feel chipper? Hurry up and say yes, because I'm running out of rhyming phrases. Rock-n-LOL is a short platform game in which the goal is to find happiness by swinging your way through a sketchbook maze. Every drop of colored water you collect makes you a little bit happier! Hooray, water!
Rather than using the arrow keys to jump around, control your block-like character by shooting a short grappling hook to grab onto colored walls. Click and hold to grab, then pay attention to the circle that's appeared around your cursor. That's the attractor (doot do-doo!). While still holding the mouse, move the attractor near your character to lengthen and shorten your rope and swing back and forth. It's a bit of a different control scheme to get used to, but once you get a bit of practice, you'll be flying around levels in no time.
As you merrily swing your way through each level, you must grab each of the colored water droplets in order to move to the next level. You can grab on to colored walls, but not black lines, and stay clear of the red triangles that can instantly kill you! Be sure to keep an eye out for power-ups that reverse or eliminate gravity, making navigating just a bit trickier to handle.
Rock-n-LOL's sixteen levels combine in the menu to show you your long journey to find happiness, plotting your progress in colorful paper form. While it might not take you long to reach the end, Rock-n-LOL serves as a quick challenge that requires quick thinking and reflexes to make things swing your way. So cheer up, and hang on tight!
