Rovio is thrilled to announce Love Rocks, an all-new game co-created with Shakira and filled with challenging puzzles, shimmering jewels and exotic locales hand-picked by the pop legend.
Featuring an innovative drop-3 gameplay mechanic, Love Rocks invites players to join Shakira on a globetrotting adventure to drop and link colorful jewels and glittering charms that create long chains, high scores – and lots of love. Beginning in Shakira’s home of Barcelona, players progress onward to the Taj Mahal, El Dorado and more in 150 levels soundtracked with Shakira’s beats – with plenty more levels to come in future updates.
“Love Rocks has been an exceptional project to be involved in from the start, and working with Rovio has been such an eye-opening and fun experience,” says Shakira. “Not only did I get to see behind the scenes on how games I love to play are built, I actually participated and they were very open to letting me brainstorm with them and help make decisions, so the end product is a true collaboration.”
The game also features tight social integration with Facebook and Twitter, enabling players to share the love, challenge their friends and try to beat the score of Shakira herself – all while following the #LoveRocks conversation.
Love Rocks is available on the App Store and Google Play.
