On A Roll is a platform game in which you control a multi-coloured spotted ball with eyes (don't ask) that has to travel across 16 levels of increasing difficulty over four unique graphical themes while getting past other multi-coloured striped balls (your enemies). These enemies can be killed by either jumping or falling on top of them. The game couldn't be simpler to learn to play; all you can do is move left or right and jump. But don't let that fool you - the later levels are more difficult than they look, and the four bosses present quite a challenge.
You can collect stars along the way for protection - one hit from an enemy will cost you 100 stars if you have them and one of your lives if you don't. Falling off the bottom of the screen also costs a life regardless of how many stars you have.
On A Roll was Battenberg Software's first game, and was released on the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Indie Games way back in September 2009. It remained on the marketplace until its closure in October 2017, but in March 2017 it was released on Steam as downloadable content for On A Roll 3D
- it's sequel. The game is still available on Steam, but you must own On A Roll 3D to play it.
