Rakete is an award-winning cooperative rocket game. The star of the game is a white rocket in space that needs to land safely on the blue pad. It was developed by Mario Von Rickenbach, a world-renowned developer.
Rakete is only available through the AirConsole platform. Players must log in through AirConsole and receive an access code to play. The game features a white rocket with five thrusters on its end. Each thruster is controlled by a single player. Players must maneuver the thrusters to help the rocket reach the blue landing pad. The catch is that each player can control only a single thruster and must work together to guide the rocket to the blue landing pad.
At its minimum, the game allows for one player to play but it is incredibly difficult for a single player to guide the rocket ship to a blue landing pad. It is much more feasible and fun to play with two or more friends. At its maximum, Rakete allows for five players. Each player must work together on their controllers to reach its destination. The rocket is surrounded by a maze of red blocks that the rocket ship must avoid or lose the game. Players also have to take care that they aren’t overzealous and blast their way into the space abyss.
It’s not enough for the players to get the ship on the blue pad. The rocket thrusters must land on the blue pad. If the rocket lands on the pad on its side or rocket top, the game automatically restarts to the beginning of the level. When players pass a level, players move to the next level of increased difficulty. These levels have different mazes and different features that are designed to engage and perhaps frustrate the players. Rakete has 38 levels with gorgeous mazes and challenges that are sure to keep players engaged and foster a positive gaming experience.
How to Play Rakete
The award winning game can be played through the AirConsole browser console. Internet connection is required to play. Players can log onto the AirConsole site via a desktop, laptop, smart TV or tablet, and search through its list of games and choose Rakete. The site will provide each player with an access code. Each player must enter their code into their smartphone to connect to the game session. When everyone is logged into the session, the first player taps the ready button and enters the game menu. The screen will show the list of levels. Players can choose from any of the 38 levels to begin playing. For brand new players, it is recommended to play the first level first. The first level is a great introduction to the game and allows players to have an idea of how the game works. It is also a great level for all players to figure out how to maneuver the ship together and to get the hang of moving a rocket ship with only a finger.
