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.

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

Rochard is a rare gem of a puzzle/action platformer featuring GIANT DEATH LASERS, gravity control (and often, lack thereof), pretty good graphics and voice acting (by 2011 standards, at least) and moderately challenging puzzles. New mechanics are added as the story progresses and it works well; the difficulty ramps up a bit with each new section. Platformers are not usually 'my thing' but this one is worth a few bucks. Not quite the caliber of Deadlight, Braid, Limbo, Gunpoint, but still damn good fun.

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.

Although the game overstays its welcome imo, it was a highly enjoyable experience from start to finish. What I mean is that when you start to get to the later levels it seems like it's never going to end. It seems like it lasted much longer than the 6 hours it took me to beat it. However I suppose that isn't entirely a bad thing because most games it seems are too short nowadays.

Rochard takes a great idea and turns it into a great game. Your beam gun and eventually laser attack gun are a lot of fun to use to figure out puzzles. I never really found the game challenging. Pretty easy actually, but still fun. Most indie game purposely try to be hard it seems nowadays so having a fun casual experience was a welcome change. It isn't too super easy though. Some parts are a little challenging. The music is pretty good and the sound effects are good, and the voice acting is great. The effects are done well and the game looks really nice too. Overall it looks more like a AAA game than a indie game. If you want a real challenge get the hard times dlc. I tried it for a little bit and it has some challenging puzzles and stuff, but I got my fill with the main game and am moving on since I have a ton of other games to play through.

Catch this on sale for a really fun time, 8/10
