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. Narrato in un comico stile cartone animato, Rochard racconta un'emozionante storia di cattivi, una damigella in pericolo e una misteriosa civiltà aliena.

CARATTERISTICHE PRINCIPALI:

  • 5 lunghi capitoli pieni di una frenetica azione platform e arguti rompicapo basati sulla gravità
  • Una fantastica grafica in stile cartone animato, ricca di comicità e personalità
  • Incredibili oggetti in grado di influenzare la gravità. Prendi, fai dondolare e lancia oggetti per risolvere puzzle o sbarazzarsi dei nemici
  • Una colonna sonora Groovy composta da Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen da Poets of the Fall, che mescola southern rock/blues e musica elettronica ispirata agli anni 80
  • La leggendaria performance di Jon St. John doppiatore del protagonista John Rochard

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!

Great game mechanics and story. A bit weak & repetitive on the combat aspect but overall a good game.

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.

Creative story and great game mechanics. Plus it's fun to play an everyday schlub as the hero.

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.

Great platformer with solid physics engine. I've enjoyed this title so far. Combines jumping, shooting, and gravity gun with some clever humour and fun story line.

I picked up on sale and at the price I paid I am 100% satisfied with my purchase.

A neat physics-based sidescroller, good mix of puzzles and combat. The game plays well on mouse and keyboard, and is generally accessible for most players. It sounds like the DLC is much harder, but I've yet to play it.

The physics feel solid, and controls are never in the way. I haven't been rushing through the game, but it seems to have a fair length and interesting story. Definitely a good game, and a good deal under 50% off.

Rochard is a Sci-fi, puzzle platformer with some combat andcool gravity controlling features. It kinda reminds me of Trine, just not as good. It's a decent game, I will admit, but it does have some lacking areas. The gameplay is pretty fun, how you can change the gravity of any area to help you through a puzzle, and the G-gun is cool to play around with, but the puzzles are very basic and easy and the combat is underdeveloped, for lack of a better word. Although, the game does have a pretty rockin' soundtrack that goes along with it.
All in all, I wouldn't suggest this game to everyone. Its one of those games where you really have to be a fan of the genre to really enjoy it. I want to like it but I just can't.
