Idea of the game:
Clear the rocks before they reach the spinner at the bottom of the screen. An original downward-scrolling, 3 sided clearance game with multiple stages and surprise features. Collect Artifacts and maybe even find the route to Mount Fury

Tumbly Rocks saved my life
A real cube rock was commissioned in order to record the tumbling sound effects when landing on different surfaces.
