If you’re looking to get a little bit of insight into the mischievous mind of this cheeky little Yordle, then look no further than the game’s trailer. Showing off the game’s 2D style, Ziggs sets off on his journey to cause chaos while Heimerdinger devises some dastardly schemes to bring the fun to an end.


What is a rhythm runner game?

While rhythm titles are hardly a new concept, we’ve never seen anything quite like Hextech Mayhem.

Players will have to guide Ziggs through a 2D space, where you’ll need to time your jumps to hit floating shapes. These act as beats, which come together to form the title’s soundtrack. As you explore Piltover, levels will change and you’ll be introduced to some head-nodding new tunes.

That’s not all, however, as players will be tasked with taking down some of Heimerdinger’s monstrous creations using their newfound musical talents.
