Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup, is a free side-scrolling mini-game published by Riot Games and developed by Pure Bang Games.

Blitzcrank Blitzcrank must save his fluffy poro friends from Baron Nashor 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.
You can download Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup during the League of Legends Arcade celebration until September 21, 2015!

Gameplay

Mini-Game Features:

  • More than 10 unique levels (by “more than” we mean 11 levels)
  • 4 playable 8-bit-inspired League of Legends champs
  • 5 unlockable super-mega-power-up items
  • Customize Blitzcrank and his pals with unlockable skins
  • Poro POROS!!!

Blitzcrank's Poro Roundup is a running side-scroller where the main objective is to grab 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 Nashor 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 or 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

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 clouds. If grabbed at this time, your character will be 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.png Yordle Snap Trap that will deploy on the right side of the screen once it is collected. Stepping on the trap will briefly stun your character.

Ghost - Transparent white Poro spirits, grabs pass through them harmlessly (with the notable exception of Thresh Thresh's Death Sentence.png 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 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 your character briefly.

About Enemy Champions

Singed - He uses his Poison Trail that slows the player, and augments Poros to poisonous ones too. After getting grabbed, he uses Fling to pick up a Poro and toss it behind his back, making it bounce and stay on the ground. After the second grab he drinks his Insanity Potion and puts his shield behind his back. The player can break the shield by grabbing it a few times.

Jinx - She whistles, calling for the help of her weapons. After a brief delay she fires Zap! that stuns the player. After getting grabbed she puts Flame Chompers! on the ground that also stun the player. After the second grab she uses both of her weapons, but can put chompers in 2 rows now.

Lulu - Although she uses her Wicked skin, she fires a projectile that polymorphs the player into a cupcake (Bittersweet Lulu's unique Whimsy effect), making them unable to use their grab. She uses Help, Pix! on Poros to shield them from a grab. She also puts Pix on the player, but this doesn't seem to have an effect.

Lissandra - She quickly goes behind the player, and after a delay she fires Ice Shards that freeze the player. In order to break free, they must tap the screen/space bar rapidly. Then she begins orbiting around the player, making it harder to grab her. After the first grab she covers the ground in ice, making it slippery. Glacial Paths also begin to come towards the player, applying the same freezing effect. After the second grab she goes behind the player again, firing Ice Shards and orbiting around them, but this time on the same slippery ground.

Veigar - He augments Poros into the big fat blue ones that go slower and randomly stop. After the second grab he puts down Event Horizons that stun the player. After the second grab he starts aiming and fires projectiles (either Primodial Burst or Baleful Strike) that also stun.

Gangplank - He aims and fires Parrrley shots that slow the player. After the second grab he uses Cannon Barrage, making his ship fire a cannonball at random locations. These cannonballs leave a hole on the ground. If the player steps in it, they get stunned. If the cannonball directly hits the player they also get stunned and the same laughing effect plays as in game when he fires Cannon Barrage. After the second grab, he uses both spells against the player.

Twitch - After jumping out of a drain cover he fires rapidly at the target, and then throws Venom Casks on the ground. Stepping in the goo or getting hit by his shots apply Deadly Venom, up to 6 stacks. The more stacks the player has, the slower they become. The stacks delay one by one after not getting hit. After the second grab he disappears into a hole, and a few seconds later reappears from a drain cover and fires rapidly again. After that he randomly becomes invisible in between each Venom cask throw.

Vel'Koz - He fires Plasma Fissions that also split into 2 vertical projectiles when reaching maximum range, and slow the player. After the first grab he uses Void Rifts that also slow the player. After the second grab he fires his Lifeform Disintegration Ray that stuns the player for its whole duration.

Annie - She fires Disintegrate projectiles that stun the player. She also augments Poros into fiery ones. After the second grab she summons Tibbers, putting him behind her. Tibbers randomly looks behind himself and jumps on the player, stunning him. When the player grabs tibbers, Annie will surround herself with Molten Shield, making it unable to grab her. She then runs outside of the screen, behind the player, and runs back. If she hits the player they become stunned. Annie will become dizzy, and her Molten Shield disables, allowing they player to grab her again. After the second grab Tibbers will appear behind the player, randomly jumping on the again, while Annie continues to set the Poros on fire.

Katarina - She shoots dagger projectiles at the player, stunning them. After the first grab she will randomly run at the player and uses Shunpo to jump behind them, and starts running back to the front. If she connects with the player, they become stunned. After the second grab she uses Death Lotus, moving up and down while rapidly firing daggers that stun the player. She uses her Shunpo trick in between Death Lotus casts too.

Baron Nashor - He fires Acid Shots that stun the target. He randomly partners up with one of the bosses (besides Vel'koz and Singed) and the player must bare with their abilities too. Every second Poro is ridden by a Minion. If the player grabs a Minion they will knock it up, damaging Baron. A new boss comes with Baron after enough Minions damaged him. After the last boss Baron will come up to the player, eating them. In order to break free they must rapidly tap the screen/space bar, causing him to split in half and letting out hundreds of Poros, and winning the game.
