Video game villains are a peculiar bunch. Despite having armies of mindlessly loyal minions, a wealth of resources at their disposal and a twisted mind hell-bent on all things evil, many ignore the lure of controlling a corrupt corporation or pursuing world domination; instead they show psychopathic obsessions with capturing unfortunate protagonist’s girlfriends, pooling all their efforts into keeping them away from our heroes. Bowser, Donkey Kong, the Shadow Warriors; all determined to get between the player and their pixellated other half. Even villainous colourful round balls are prone to the occasional spouse-stealing, setting up the premise for Rolling Hero, the latest game from developers Gameplay Squad.
I can’t precisely remember which Tower Defence style game I played first but I can remember the one that sapped many hours out of my youth when flash based browser gaming was becoming huge. Bloons is that culprit. A time waster like no other, the possibilities for air filled carnage were endless and it was a constant battle to beat my friends scores. It’s fair to say that I will probably judge any game that classifies itself as tower defence squarely against the joy I once gleamed from the lost time of yester-year.

Following the success of the popular Flick Champions, and Flick Champions World Editions, Nawia Games and Chillingo have paired up again to bring us a Winter themed edition of the well-received game, for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. You start by choosing which country you want to compete for, and help get to the top of the leader board. Then you are greeted by the menu screen, which allows you to choose which game mode you want to start playing in. You can go for a quick game, and have a fast paced thrilling match of either, Slalom, Skating, Ski Jumping, Ice Hockey, Curling or a fun Snowball Fight. My personal favorite has to be Slalom, as I am really competitive with myself, and just love trying to get through all of those gates!
