Prendi un G-Lifter - il tuo nuovo migliore amico! Usalo per cambiare la gravità a tuo piacimento, manipolare l'ambiente, e lanciare grosse casse ai tuoi nemici.

Fai parte anche tu delle gesta dell'astro-minatore John Rochard e imbarcati in un viaggio gravitazionale attraverso il sistema solare! Rochard è un pluri-premiato side-scroller che garantisce ore di un allucinante gameplay gravitazionale, pieno di rompicapo e d'azione.

Un platformer onesto, senza infamia e senza lode.
Vista la sua durata, circa 4 ore, e il basso livello di difficoltà lo sconsiglio agli appassionati del genere, mentre per tutti gli altri conviene prenderlo in un bundle.

5,5/10

Rochard is a sci-fi platform game which was initially released on the PlayStation 3 network in 2011, but was eventually ported to he PC later in that year. The game revolves around taking control of gravity, and using the gravity gun called the G-Lifter. This is used to manipulate objects around the levels. This game has it all, increasingly challenging environmental puzzles, action, a rich story line and plenty of humor.

The game play is a two dimensional side scrolling platformer that takes place in three dimensional scenes. You work your way through the environments completing a series of puzzles and combat encounters. You are able to change the gravity in the room very easily at just the press of a button. All of the puzzles are easy enough for you to not get stuck on them for ages, but hard enough so that you can't just stroll into a room and instantly be able to figure it out. It hits the sweet spot just right.

The graphical fidelity is very pleasing, it has a nice art style which works well with this type of game. All of the character models look well polished and has brilliant animation. The voice acting is also top notch here too, something a fair few games manage to fall down on.

While the single player story mode took me about five hours to complete; I felt as if it managed to fulfill its potential in that time. There is also some DLC available for a very cheap price which includes four new challenging puzzle levels. Granted there is more of an emphasis on the puzzle solving as apposed to the combat, but even for the most experienced puzzle platforming players you'll find them difficult. I did have to check out the walkthrough because I was stumped at times.

This is a really well ported game, I didn't have any technical problems, you are able to play in higher resolutions and the game does work with the keyboard and mouse, however it is highly recommended you use a controller with these types of games.

I would recommend Rochard to people who really enjoy the puzzle platforming genre, people expecting an action packed side scrolling shooter will probably not find the thrill they are looking for. But if you want a couple hours of figuring out puzzles in a sci-fi environment, you may as well try Rochard

Probably my favourite 2D puzzle/plattformer on steam. Cool presentation, nice controls and music. I also love the mood and humour of the game, it really sets me in a sci-fi/space scenario. The base mechanic of the game consists in shooting and solving puzzles, with the help of your grav gun, and to a minor extent platforming elements; overall its solid and fun. The dlc is good too, a bit short though

This is a nice platformer. Casual and friendly. The most fun part for me was when Rochard (main character) was swinging around, screaming like Tarzan. I would recommend this game even at a full price, though be aware that this game is often on sale.

Rochard is a fun little physics/puzzle based platformer with a decent enough (although rather cliched) storyline to go along with it.

- Combat can get a bit boring as you basically have the option of shooting or throwing stuff at the enemies but it's not a major part of the game anyway.

- The mechanics of the "G-Lifter" and the fact you can manipulate gravity at will (remotely by manipulating "gravity generator" on each level) makes each level somewhat challenging to begin with, but once you see the solution you'll kick yourself for not seeing it sooner.

- The graphics aren't going to blow anyone away, it is built on a fairly old version of the Unity engine but they're perfectly acceptable and go well with the game.

- It has collectibles hidden around each level. Although they all look the same, it adds a degree of replayability to the game for those who like to get every achievement in games.

- The soundtrack is very enjoyable and always fits the situation perfectly.

- The voice acting is decent, especially that of the main character, John Rochard, voiced by Jon St. John, the voice of Duke Nukem himself.

Overall, it's worth buying, although wait for a sale. There isn't enough content for £8 but there's certainly plenty for £2.
