Thinking about a swirling vortex that could lead anywhere would definitely keep the mind occupied and you can explore one in Rolly Vortex. Someone was brave or bored enough to send a colorful ball down a vortex which fortunately is bound by the laws of physics in some ways. As the ball rolls, being pulled further down the vortex, you can alter its course so that it can get further and you can see more of the area's mysteries. Or you can just see how far the ball will roll before you have to send another one down to try again.
About Rolly Vortex
The Endless Runner is a genre that's very popular among casual and mobile gaming, but here's what you would call a sub-genre in the Endless Roller. Many titles are out there rolling balls through various tunnels to see how far they can guide the ball before it crashes or falls. This game is one of those titles, complete with a simple and solid color scheme and a ball that is more mobile than the average running human. It's a fun and low-maintenance activity that can tug at you to test yourself and see if you can get a little bit further each time that you play.
How to Play
Rolly Vortex is a 3D game about rolling a ball down a rotating vortex and steering it with the keyboard. You only have two directions: Press the Left Arrow key to steer it left and the Right Arrow key to steer it right. The ball will constantly be moving forward but has full range over the tunnel allowing you to move it all around the sides with steering. The goal is to get the ball as far as you can and many earn some Gems along the way.
The vortex will be trying to stop the ball from getting too deep inside by generating obstacles around the tunnel. These take the form of colorful barriers that will rotate either clockwise or counterclockwise. The good news is that they have gaps in them which will allow the ball to pass through safely. If the ball hits even the edge of one of these barriers, it'll be destroyed and you'll have to start from the very beginning.
The further you get and the more you play, the more likely you are to earn Gems. These can be used at the ball shop at the main menu to buy different balls, the prices starting at around 50 Gems.
Tips and Tricks
Being an endless roller, it's not easy to predict to how the tunnel will generate so you'll need to look to the distance to prepare your moves. Also keep in mind that while steering around the vortex, remember that the controls won't be reversed to avoid making mistakes.
