The global sports sensation from South East Asia, Roll Spike, is heading to Rio! Amongst the fanfare of the world’s top athletes comes the cultural sport of Sepak Takraw as you’ve never seen it before. Since its launch in May, Roll Spike has kicked up the bar with 3.5 million downloads worldwide. Get ready for all new teams from New Zealand, Australia, France, Italy, USA, China and of course Brazil. There are new maps, a new story gameplay mode as well as new stadium locations from around the world.
For those of you that have no idea what Sepak Takraw is , it’s a popular South East Asian sport originating from Malaysia. The game is similar to the sport of volleyball. But instead of using your hands players rely on their feet, legs and chest to get the ball across. Roll Spike makes it easy for players to experience the spirit of Sepak Takraw through an intuitive touch D-Pad and button control system, completely optimized for mobile. Roll Spike gets into fast paced action with a series of available kicks, passes, headers, blocks and of course a special roll spike attack!
Havene Liew, Managing Director of Mediasoft Entertainment said, “The Olympics is an amazing time for athletes and fans of sports alike. But the market is generally dominated by popular Western sports such as football, basketball and tennis. We wanted to create a game that was not only enjoyable but reflected our local culture. Considering the amazing amount of skill and the popularity of the sport, maybe sepak takraw will be an Olympic sport in the future”.
Developed by Mediasoft Entertainment, Malaysia’s award winning games development studio, Roll Spike is the first ever Sepak Takraw mobile game in the world. The game is out now as a free to play game available globally on the iOS and Google Play Store.
