Play mini-games within the time limit!

When I first found Roach Master on the app store, I didn’t think much of it. But seeing as it was under the “What We’re Playing” section I thought, if it’s good for Apple, it’s good for me. I had no idea what this game was going to be, I thought maybe it would be a game about a roach trying to get through a kitchen without being killed. But that’s not it at all. And I am so glad.

The best way to describe Roach Master is like Dumb Ways to Die, but 100% better. And harder. You start on the menu which feels a lot like a console game, and that gave me the instinct that this was going to be good. There’s a main game button, arcade corner, the lootboard, and heart buddies. The main game includes lots of mini-games that you need to complete within a time frame. You have 3 lives and the idea is to get to the end of the string of mini-games without losing them all. If there’s a particular mini-game you like, you can find them in the arcade corner.

Sort pairs of socks, fill up a kettle, find the missing fridge item, take the colored clothes out of the washing machine and so much more!


The graphics are amazing!

As for the graphics, they’re definitely as of console-quality for its genre. The animations were really well done and each scene had an inanimate object that had its own personality.

Music & Sounds

Following on from the amazing graphics, the sounds are also brilliant and need to be on for the ultimate experience. Each inanimate object in the mini-games talks, along with the lives shouting “YOU ROCK” when you complete a level. I found this such a nice feature as with the vast majority of app games, you have to do a lot of reading.


The controls depend on the mini-game!

The controls depend on each mini-game but generally, it’s a tap and drag kind of deal. You get told the controls a few seconds before the level starts, so it can become tricky to remember. However, that adds to the rush of being able to do it in the time limit.
