I was sitting there enjoying some wonderful food and drink at E3 2012. Paul was checking out this rotating game. My feet hurt and I was happy to relax for a minute. Knights of the Round Cable stuck out in my mind though. I saw hundreds of games at E3 2012, and Knights of the Round Cable stayed with me. So I asked to review this iPhone/iPod Touch game.
Since I am writing this review you can probably discern the response from our epic editor in chief. Knights of the Round Cable is all about grabbing onto objects in the castles and rotating around. There are gems to collect, enemies to avoid, and some enemies to dispatch. If Knights of the Round Cable was just that, it would get boring really soon.
Thankfully Knights of the Round Cable is a whole lot more. We have goals to achieve, and we earn currency in the levels. That currency can be spent on other knights (once they are unlocked), and upgrades. These are what extends the replay value of Knights of the Round Cable. This app can easily be played for a few weeks.
The music in Knights of the Round Cable makes me think of medieval times. The music provides an atmosphere of excitement. The sound byte voices fit the theme of this game as well. I love saving the princesses from the cages. Our princess is always in the castle we are in as well. There may be more than one, but I can live with that.
Knights of the Round Cable has one really cool thing going for it. The player can bounce their knight off the ground and sides of the castle. This adds a dimension to the game play that I have not seen before in a rotational game. The goals concept in Knights of the Round Cable bumps it up a level or two in terms of this review. I hope to see sequels to Knights of the Round Cable in the future.
