John Rochard é dublado pelo Jon St. John, mesma voz que deu vida ao personagem Duke Nukem. Além desse "molho especial", ainda temos aí um jogo plataforma feito com a engine Unity com uma bela aplicação da física.

Belos cinematics que fazem a história ser bem contagiante.

Tenho apenas uma crítica quanto a dificuldade dos puzzles, que se mostraram muito fáceis. Talvez eles tenham deixado os mais difíceis pro DLC Hard Times. Achei um pouco sacanagem dos caras, mas não tira a beleza do produto final.

Um jogo muito legal, e muito divertido. Envolve alguns puzzles que, creio eu, mais para frente irão se dificultar mais, mas mesmo assim, até agora onde joguei, já deu para se divertir muito. Vale a pena conferir.

What a fun little game. With it's addictive puzzle/physics gameplay, and awesome soundtrack Rochard is just one of those indie games that needs to be played even if you are not into indie games. Your main use of interacting with the world around you is with the G-Lifter, much like the gravity gun in Half life 2 you can accomplish puzzles and defeat enemies with this neat little tool. The story is also what makes this game immersive, and want you to keep playing. It mixes a blend of puzzle solving with action so you never get bored. You play as John Rochard who is a miner and he and his team of miners are not having much luck when it comes to finding Turbinium a valuable resource in the game that is worth a lot apparently......until one day! Get this game while on a discount so it be worth your while to find out for yourself!

I really dislike this game and I will try to elaborate as much as I can. I hope that my arguments against this game will be justified and fair.

This game is a puzzle-platformer most of the time and this is one of the better elements done in Rochard. Puzzles and mechanics aren't clever or original (main gimmick is a gravity gun and lowering/increasing gravity force), but most of the time they are nonintrusive. I also liked some sections where you are performing Tarzan using mentioned gun. This was pretty fun.

Unfortunately, all other important aspects fall flat for me. ESPECIALLY combat. Sometimes you are forced to shoot some dudes. I can understand that it was added to vary the pacing, but at the end it was implemented very badly on many levels. One, ludonarrative dissonance. Your protagonist is presumably a nice and caring guy, yet you gunning down mercenaries like heartless ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Two, gunplay is pretty boring and unsatisfying. You basic gun makes only minor "pew pew pew" and most of the time shooting you feel empty. Three, enemies are morons. They literally get crushed by the slow moving elevator without any reaction. "Moving away from the lowering platform? Nah, I will stay here! Nothing important to consi..." <Dead>. This is a overall how they function. Expect idiots everywhere.

Story is extremely problematic. You can see first plot twist from mile away and game expects you to be shocked. Dramatic scenes are made laughable thanks to poor and repetitive 3D animations. Characters are really bland and except for the main protagonist, they have no personality whatsoever. I'm a person that can ignore story problems if characters are likeable, but this is not the case. Mid-game they are trying to set up the "big reveal" at the end. Of course there are no actual hints or information what's going on, game only insist that there is a MASSIVE revelation down the line. After pretty weak bossfight at the end of the game you will learn the truth! SPOILER ALERT You get nothing. To sum up: uninteresting characters, no actual story development, weak villain, no pay-off. Nothing.

Graphics look kind of nice, but level design is uninspired (many annoying forcefields of different kinds that block you, block things you carry or block your shots) and art assets are reused very often. best looking locations are to ones that are more unique - Third level for example. Game has also a VERY bad habit of not telling you important things. Example: "Great! You found an upgrade station!", "What does it do?", "I don't know!". Other example: You are expected to lower gravity in one room to reach higher ledge in one of the early levels. I was stuck there for few minutes, I didn't know that I can do that. No button prompt, no voice information. This could be understandable in more basic game, but in that moment I was thinking that I'm getting a puzzle wrong. Until I checked the control scheme and discovered the button for gravity change (note that effect of button press is not instant), I was painfully stuck

Overall, I would call Rochard an unpleasant experience. Puzzles are okayish, but combat, story and questionable omissions in basic game design make this one part boring, second part infuriating and third part plain mediocre. I simply cannot recommend it. People may like this game, I don't know how, but that's good for you.

Rochard is not disappointing in delivering a solid experience with physics-based puzzles and combat. Its story though is very cliché.

Totally recommend this game. Maybe easier to finish with a gamepad but I found it easy enough with a keyboard. Don't mind the graphics - might seem cartoonish but that just adds to the game. Main character is a laugh! Nice fellow.

All in all, a nice game to just while away some time. Except for maybe 2 places, the game was easy to finish. Worth the money.

I beat this game in less than 3 hours (see my Speed Run achievement here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/AerialMaverick/stats/appid/107800/achievements) I have more hours on this game than Steam thinks because I played this game in Offline Mode. Anyways, this is a great 3D action & puzzle sidescroller, though the puzzles aren't very hard. Still a very fun game, if you don't believe me try the demo!

Great platformer with 3d graphics, 2d movement, nice puzzles and some action. Good for casual playing. I was a little reluctant to get it because the store video made it look more like an action game, but it is (so far at least) mostly focused on puzzles, and the action parts are very easy. As it was on sale I immediately bought the DLC as well.

Rochard is a physics puzzle platformer, which came out a few years ago, long before the current glut of physics puzzle platformers. In retrospect, Rochard is obviously an older game with many design flaws that were the result of not being able to learn the mistakes of other titles in the genre.

First of all, the game's positives: Rochard has fairly good graphics and 90s cartoon art style. The protagonist is not a faceless muscular commando, but a working stiff with a potbelly and some personality. The supporting characters are similarly varied, and the entire cast has decent voice acting. The writing is nothing special, but the style of story does fit well with the cartoony art aesthetic, though any plot twists are obvious from a mile away.

The problems with the game are that it focuses on both combat and puzzle solving, but does neither very well. Combat is done using a combination Gravity Gun/Laser Blaster against mercernaries or bots. Enemy AI is simplistic, reminiscent of very early console platformers. There's very little challenge in that area, so you would expect something more from the puzzle department. Unfortunately, that is not the case, as puzzles are equally simplistic, never reaching the level of mind-bending challenge that a dedicated puzzle game like Portal or The Swapper provides. So what's left? Nothing. No high score mechanic, and no exploration. There's a barebones badly executed attempt at Metroidvania elements for collectables which forces some backtracking, but that's not at all enjoyable due to lack of fast movement abilities, and lack of enjoyable combat.

All in all, Rochard is simply less than the sum of its parts.

Decent action platformer with logic puzzles. Plot is kinda just there. Combat ís mostly easy and puzzles are not hard either. Game is quite short, it took me just over six hours to finish it, However I still like playing this game. So the verdict is - wait for sale.
