Rockhoppers is a fast-paced, realtime racing and set collection game that utilizes dice. Lots of dice. With six different factions to choose from, Rockhoppers sees all players simultaneously pilot their mining ships around the rings of Saturn in a race to mine rare crystals (‘dice’) hidden within the space rocks.
Use different combinations of mined crystals to propel your ship forward, upgrade your ship’s functionality and score points!
At the end of the game, players receive points for the crystals they have collected, and bonus points for specific combinations of crystals they have collected.
"...Rockhoppers is a traditional, yet very appealing, set collection and dice rolling game set in the depths of space. Collecting crystals, zooming around planets and hopping to other rings seems absolutely entertaining, creating the feeling that you are part of a space gold rush of sorts."
