  • A groovy soundtrack composed by Markus “Captain” Kaarlonen from Poets of the Fall, mixing southern rock/blues and 80′s inspired electronic music

This game is pure gem. Dont remember when i played more fun platformer. Puzzles are not overwhelmingly hard but still very satisfying, difficulty is spot on. Gameplay is so addicting you can spent few hours playing without realising it :). It also has great replay value, and ill gladly buy DLC for it. I recommend it even for full price, its worth it.

Rochard is a fun and original space adventure game that features a resourceful hero, ominous villains, rugged machinery, big explosions, even bigger stunts and sharp oneliners that allows players to step into the shoes of the astro-miner John Rochard and embark on a gravity-bending journey across the Solar System.
The graphics are good, the soundtrack is marvelous, the story is engaging and the gameplay is great.
Rochard is a fun combination of action and puzzling and I recommend it.

a unique puzzle game that has lots of interesting mechanics, it's an interesting 2d platformer that takes place in space, i'd love to see what the game devs can do with a 3d platformer of this though
