  • Track down the hidden gold gems to open new paths through the game!

HISTORY

Polyroll was inspired by PC platformer games from the shareware era, as well as taking inspiration from Mario and Sonic’s different styles. An earlier version of the game was released by Spicy Gyro Games for iOS. Spicy Gyro Games teamed up with Shiny Dolphin Games LLC in 2018 to bring Polyroll to PC.

Shiny Dolphin was founded by Kevin Dressel, an ex-Zyngite who worked on Cityville, Ninja Kingdom, and several unreleased games, before quitting to follow his dreams!

Spicy Gyro Games (Justin Craig) is a screenwriter, pixel artist, and game designer who splits his time between film and indie games. He also created Clash Force.

PRESS

“Hey this looks like an old game ZOMG!”TouchArcade

“As a throwback to 2D platformers of old, Polyroll succeeds with its pixel art, music, and mechanics that pay homage to the moves of a certain blue hedgehog.”AppSpy

“Overall, Polyroll is a great platform game – mostly action-oriented fun, with a bit of thought required in order to collect all the special gems”Arcadelife
