After a slight dip in popularity, WWE star Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, seems bent on making a comeback in the cultural psyche. Starring in the new G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie and the upcoming reality/contest TV series The Hero on TNT will help, but there was still one thing needed to make the effort complete – a video game. That last box can now be checked with the release of WWE Presents: Rockpocalypse in the Google Play Store.
The new title takes place on a Hollywood soundstage when the folks on the lot start changing into violent, angry beasts due to some unknown pathogen. At least, that is how the setting is described. Screenshots make the enemies The Rock battles appear as regular goons. The goal of all the action is to guide The Rock through the movie lot, punching, kicking and slamming along the way, to find the source of the infection. The game includes hidden clues, upgrades to health, stamina, attack and slam capabilities, and five different combat skills.
Rockpocalypse requires Android 4.0 or higher, clocks in at 226MB and it is free. If you feel like taking a turn as the People’s Champion and want to lay the smack down on some bad guys, use one of the download links below to grab a copy for your Android device.
