BlitzcrankSquare Blitzcrank must save his fluffy PoroSquare Poro friends from Baron NashorSquare Baron Nashor's belly. Why? Well, because robots have hearts too... or maybe their programming is just telling them that they do. This is getting confusing.

Gameplay

Mini-Game Features:

Blitzcrank's Poro Roundup is a running side-scroller where the main objective is to grab PoroSquare Poros while evading obstacles. You can move up and down the track, and can "crank" to grab and pull Poros and objects in front of you.

Grabbing Poros saves them from being gobbled up by Baron NashorSquare Baron Nashor and grants gold, which you can use in the Shop. You have a limited number of hearts, and lose one heart for each Poro that disappears past the left side of the screen (where they are gobbled up by Baron). If too many Poros are devoured, your champion will give up and be eaten by Baron.

The Poros come in a variety of forms, some of which have special characteristics and powers. After saving a sufficient amount of Poros, you will enter a Boss Fight with another named champion in League of Legends. Their attacks can temporally Stun icon stun or Slow icon slow you, making it harder to collect Poros. By pulling them, you damage the boss and trigger the next phase. Each Boss Fight has three phases, and in each phase, the boss will gain new attacks or mix up them up. Grabbing the boss three times defeats them, and moves you onto the next Stage.

About Poros

  • PoroSquare Generic
    • White, orange and brown Poros that come in pairs. They move at different speeds; white Poros move the slowest (meaning they reach your character the fastest), followed by orange and brown Poros.
  • Piltover
    • Mohawk-sporting Poros that come in pairs. They also come in 3 different colors that each move at different speeds (white, pink and purple). However these Poros also move up and down in a small area, making them harder to grab.
  • Poison
    • Sickly green Poros that come in pairs, they periodically emit Poison icon poison clouds. If grabbed at this time, your character will be Slow icon slowed.
  • Mage
    • White Poros donning a wizard hat. They create a shield around 2 random Poros, causing grabs to push them forward instead of pulling them in. Later levels in Story Mode feature Armored Mages which behave the same way, but also gain a layer of armor on themselves which must first be broken with a grab or bump.
  • Ice
    • Blue Poros that come in pairs, they are initially covered in a layer of ice, which must first be broken with a grab or bump before collection.
  • Fat
    • Large blue Poros that move slowly and periodically stop to catch their breath.
  • Pirate
    • Brown, bandana-clad Poros. They take multiple Grabs to pull in, and upon first being grabbed or bumped they drop Coin power-ups as they flee, which can be collected for 100 Gold each.
  • Trap
    • Orange Poros that come in pairs, the frontmost of the duo holds a Yordle Snap Trap Yordle Snap Trap that will deploy on the right side of the screen once it is collected. Stepping on the trap will briefly Stun icon stun your character.
  • Ghost
    • Transparent white Poro spirits, grabs pass through them harmlessly (with the notable exception of ThreshSquare Thresh's Death Sentence Death Sentence). Once bumped into however, they become tangible as they run forward, allowing you to grab them.
  • Fire
    • Charred black Poros that come in pairs, they periodically burst into flames. Attempting to grab them at this time will negate the grab and Stun icon stun your character briefly. When bumped into, the flames are turned off as they run.
  • Purple Caster Minion
    • Ranged minions which attempt to hinder you. If grabbed they increase the grab's animation time (as your character will strike the grabbed minion away), and if collided into they Stun icon stun your character briefly.
