Rock of Ages is a totally historically accurate game where you play as Sisyphus, punished for your life of deceit by being forced to roll a boulder up a hill, only to have it roll back to the bottom upon finally reaching the top. Obviously, that's a stupid afterlife, and quite frankly you're sick of Hades laughing at you every time the boulder runs over your foot. Using your in-depth knowledge of ball rolling, you will travel through time, taking out historical figures in a Monty Python-esque story, using your choice of giant boulder (want flames? spikes?) to destroy the enemy's gate and turn them into roadkill.

Playthrough 1:
You'll start the game out in a tutorial level, where you'll be introduced to the basic stone-crunching destruction of the game. Completing the level will grant you "Escape from Hades." In the second tutorial level, you will be introduced to the head-to-head stone rolling race that will make up the remainder of your campaign. Starting here, you will need to start looking for three golden keys per level for "Keymaster." Most of the keys are very easy to find, with others being barely hidden behind objects as you roll down the hill in each level. You will only need to roll through the key once to get it, and you can exit or restart the level if you want and you'll still have the key (the key will be sort of grayed out now). You will now also be able to do a number of action-related achievements, the first of which you should shoot for is "Eagle Eye," which requires you to use the Castlepult to score a direct hit on the enemy boulder. Some other achievements you will need to get over the course of the campaign are: "Prosperous," for earning 7000 gold in a single level, "Cocky," for finishing a level without destroying an enemy unit (Tower, Cow, etc.), and "Berserker," for hitting the enemy gate with the fireball powerup (the flaming boulder). You will also need to finish a level without allowing your wall to get hit for "Flawless Victory," and destroy one of the flying ships that start to appear from the Madrid level onward for Rock the Boat. Finishing the campaign will grant you "Champion of Champions."

Note: Many of these achievements can be more easily achieved if you have a second controller (such as getting Flawless Victory by simply having player 2 sit at their start point), though it is not required

Clean Up:
If you just cut through the game without focusing on all of the achievements and keys, you will probably have some cleaning up to do. The clean up should be rather quick now that you know the levels.

SkeeBoulder, Time Trial, and Multiplayer:
You will now want to clean up all of the extra game modes. The first, and easiest of the three, will be "Top Shot," which you can get in SkeeBoulder mode. You will also need to replay each mission with haste in time trial mode for "Bling Bling." For the final achievement, you will need to get an online opponent and beat them 10 times in online War games for "Troublemaker."
