Five Games Rock Enthusiasts Should Check Out

Are you ready to rock? If you are an enthusiast of power chords, heavy riffs, and headbanging mayhem, here are five games you should definitely check out.

Jimi Hendrix

Crüe Ball

Fans of heavy rockers Mötley Crüe are sure to get a kick out of playing this pinball game based on the band. 1992’s Crüe Ball features plenty of the group’s big hits, including Live Wire, Dr. Feelgood, and Home Sweet Home. Upon its release, the game was awarded the Sega Seal of Quality Award for Best Sound at the Consumer Electronics Show. And it is as much fun to play today as it was in the ‘90s.

Jimi Hendrix Online Slot

His mainstream music career may have only lasted around four years, but Jimi Hendrix is largely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential musicians of the twentieth century. Since the 1960s, the electric guitarist, who is known for hits like Purple Haze and Hey Joe, has become an icon of popular music and popular culture, so it should not come as a huge surprise to learn there is a rocking slot game named after him. In the Jimi Hendrix online slot, you can embrace that psychedelic ‘60s rock feeling with groovy red guitar re-spins and symbols like peace signs, hearts, and flowers. The game also comes with a soundtrack featuring a fantastic selection of Hendrix classics, including Foxy Lady, Crosstown Traffic, and Voodoo Child. The Jimi Hendrix slot is available to play at Casumo casino.

Ed Hunter

Kings of heavy metal, Iron Maiden, have become just as well-known for their mascot Eddie, who has appeared on virtually all of their album covers and featured in almost all of their live shows, as much as for classic albums like The Number of the Beast and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. So, it is fitting that the zombie-like Eddie should get to star in his very own video game. 1999’s Ed Hunter is a PC shooter game that sees Eddie traveling through levels based on some of Iron Maiden’s most famous albums. For instance, the Egyptian level is based on the band’s Powerslave album, and the East End of London level is based on Maiden’s Killers album.

Green Day: Rock Band

Welcome to paradise. If you are a fan of American punk legends Green Day, you will have a whale of a time playing the Green Day: Rock Band game. Released in 2010, it is the fifth release in the Rock Band series of games. Up to four players can use controllers modeled after musical instruments: a lead guitar, a bass guitar, a drum, and a microphone. Can you simulate such classic Green Day tracks as Basket Case, Nice Guys Finish Last, and American Idiot? The video game features 44 playable tracks. You can even download the entire albums of Dookie, American Idiot, and 21st Century Breakdown.

Revolution X

Aerosmith is unquestionably one of the greatest rock bands of all time, and the video game Revolution X is a fitting accompaniment to the group’s legacy. Released back in 1994, the plot of Revolution X involves an oppressive regime called the New Order Nation who kidnap the members of Aerosmith. You use a mounted gun to shoot down enemies with compact discs while saving Aerosmith band-members along the way. Revolution X received much praise upon its release, and with a soundtrack featuring such Aerosmith classics as Toys in the Attic, Sweet Emotion, and Walk This Way, any fan of the band is sure to enjoy whiling away the hours playing this rock-tastic game. On the Amazon Jungle level, you will even encounter a muzak version of the song Love in an Elevator playing inside an elevator!
