E4's SWARM will enthrall speed junkies with quick action, quirky characters, and colorful environments! SWARM mixes traditional accelerometer ball-rollers with character-driven platforming and tension-filled chasing for a truly unique action experience. Use HotRod's superior handling skills to lure enemies into thrilling traps - the more you tilt, the faster he goes. With motion controls in hand, every twitch will be taken into account - Be The Ball! As the story begins, our spherical hero, 'HotRod' was enjoying an innocent joy-roll that turned into a "misunderstanding" with the Ball-timore police force. The high speed chase is interrupted by an invasion of alien robo-cops trying to become the new law. Ever the hero, HotRod leaps into action on a quest to save his city and learn the true origin of the robo-menace. Play as the outlaw hero HotRod, or a selection of other characters, on an adventure through cities, jungles, and into the final frontier! Meet and play as a colorful cast
