Description

"From Riot Games, creator of League of Legends (and Teemo… sigh), comes Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup, a free side-scrolling mini-game, out now for a limited time!

Blitzcrank Blitzcrank must save his fluffy Poro Poro friends from Baron Nashor's Baron Nashor's belly. Why? Well, because robots have hearts too... or maybe their programming is just telling them that they do. This is getting confusing.

You can download Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup during the League of Legends Arcade celebration until September 21, 2015!"

Gameplay

Mini-Game Features:

  • More than 10 unique levels (by “more than” we mean 11 levels)
  • 4 playable 8-bit-inspired League of Legends champs
  • 5 unlockable super-mega-power-up items
  • Customize Blitzcrank and his pals with unlockable skins
  • POROS!!! POROS!!!

Blitzcrank's Poro Roundup is a running side-scroller where the main objective is to grab Poros Poros while evading obstacles. You can move up and down the track, and can "crank" to grab and pull Poros and objects in front of you.

Grabbing Poros saves them from being gobbled up by Baron Nashor Baron Nashor and grants gold, which you can use in the Shop. You have a limited number of hearts, and lose one heart for each Poro that disappears past the left side of the screen (where they are gobbled up by Baron). If too many Poros are devoured, your champion will give up and be eaten by Baron.

The Poros come in a variety of forms, some of which have special characteristics and powers. After saving a sufficient amount of Poros, you will enter a Boss Fight with another named champion in League of Legends. Their attacks can stun stun (1.5s) or slow slow (2.5s) you, making it harder to collect Poros. Each Boss Fight has three phases, and in each phase, the boss will gain new attacks or mix up them up. By grabbing them, you damage the boss and trigger the next phase. Grabbing the boss three times defeats them, and moves you onto the next Stage.

Mechanics

  • Objects and units are arranged in any one of five rows.
  • The playable character is two rows tall, the upper half is subject only to projectiles.
  • Things can be bumped upon character collision, sending them a bit forward.
  • Some units can use armor that dispel grabs, which can be destroyed when bumped or grabbed.

Poros

Both Poros in a pair will run when bumped.

  • Piltover — 20 Gold 20, 15 Gold 15, 10 Gold 10
Mohawk-sporting Poros that come in pairs. They also come in 3 different colors that each move at different speeds (white, pink and purple). However these Poros also move up and down in a small area, making them harder to grab.
  • Poison — 30 Gold 30
Sickly green Poros that come in pairs, they periodically emit poison poison clouds. Grabbing a smoking Poro inflicts Slow Slow.
  • Mage — 30 Gold 30
White Poros donning a wizard hat. They create a shield around 2 random Poros, causing grabs to bump instead. Noxus introduces the armored variety of Mage Poro.
  • Frost — 40 Gold 40
Blue Poros that come in pairs, armored in ice.
  • Fat — 50 Gold 50
Large blue Poros that move slowly and periodically stop to catch their breath.
  • Trap — 60 Gold 60
Orange Poros that come in pairs, the foremost of which holds a Yordle Snap Trap Yordle Snap Trap. When grabbed, the Poro deploys the trap at the far end of the row that inflicts Stun Stun.
  • Ghost — 80 Gold 80
Transparent white Poro spirits that harmlessly phase through grabs (with the notable exception of Thresh's Thresh's Death Sentence Death Sentence). When bumped, they become tangible while they run forward.
  • Infernal — 90 Gold 90
Charred black Poros that come in pairs, they periodically burst into flames. Grabbing a flaming Poro will dispel the grab and inflict Stun Stun. When bumped, the flames are turned off as they run.
  • Pirate — 1000 Gold 1000
Brown, bandana-clad Poros that get bumped for the first 2 grabs, dropping coins that can be collided for 100 Gold 100.
Ranged minions stand in place and attempt to hinder a grab. Grabs pierce through minions, removing them at the cost of an increased grab animation time. Bumping a minion will inflict Stun Stun.
