Welcome to ROLLHILL!

A physics based racing game where you don't drive a car, nor a bike, but a single wheel! Actually, drive would be an overstatement, because it has no brakes, nor gas, just gravity and balance!

A freeroll down the montain... the ultimate downhill!

Your key to success is stabilizing the wheel while maintaining a trajectory to stay on track. Sounds easy at first, but takes some time to master!

Now, have you got what it takes to be the ROLLHILL champion?


WHAT YOU GET

Current release brings 5 levels of varying difficulties and dynamics where you can learn the basics and eventually compete to set best times!

If you think you have got a record time, screenshot-share your run score in comments below!

Yeah, we know that's a ghetto system, please bear with us, while we're working on the competition layer in-game.

While alpha, this is a fully playable game showcasing the core mechanics, but in our minds, it's far from being complete. We launched now to start gather feedback and hear your opinion!

Awesome concept! Needs bluegrass music and a highway level

Cool to hear!
How would you rate the difficulty of the game and did you finish on all 5 of available levels?

(+2)

I did! I would rate the first three levels as easy, and the last two (snowtop, forest) as somewhat challenging. If any more levels were to be added, I think they could be much harder.  It looks like you designed a lot of these levels to make it impossible for the player to "cheat", but I see that as an invitation to find my own shortcuts.

It's such a satisfying physics engine; you've got something really cool here!

(1 edit) (+1)

It's actually how I play the game myself. I still find new and crazy shortcuts in Forest from time to time, despite that I myself made those levels. I blocked out some game-breaking shortcuts or made them harder or useless, but overall it's kind of welcomed to try and break and shave off seconds.
