I did not like this. I did not like this at all.
The setting is interesting, the story is okay and the controls are sometimes a bit too frustrating (why wouldn't I be able to walk on all walls and step over small pipes). And that's actually exactly what I expected from this game. It's okay to have janky controls. But it's not okay to have "nonsensical puzzle game logic". Every now and again I stumbled upon a puzzle that had the most illogical solution. Sometimes the thought bubble explanations are obtuse, sometimes the required items don't make sense, and sometimes the actual goal of the puzzle is illogical. For example - a bug asks us to find him a drink, but when you eventually find it he won't take it. Why? Because you apparently need to put a AA battery in it to make it an energy drink (simple logic right?). I have no idea how anyone supposed to come up with this solution without just trying all the items on other items and coming up with the solution by trial and error. And the game never gives you a reason why would you have to do it. Progressing in this game mostly means trying all the items you could find on all the intractable points in the current room and hopefully something will happen.
If that's something you enjoy/can withstand, go for it. It's cheap on sales. Otherwise stay away.

Journey of a Roach is a point and click adventure game with a stylistic twist: as a cockroach, you can climb on nearly any surface, including the ceiling. This allows the main character, a cockroach named Jim, to traverse levels in a uniquely three-dimensional manner, with his main goal being to rescue his friend from a gang of kidnapping ants. The wall-crawling feature, along with the game's charmingly excitable characters, creative level design, and user-friendly puzzles, makes for a pleasant point and click experience.

Like most point and click adventure games, the main goal in Journey of a Roach is to collect various items and then use them in the correct locations. Often the items are in hard to reach locations that require creative climbing to get to. Sometimes you might have to combine items in your inventory so that they can be used to solve puzzles. The puzzles themselves are fairly straightforward, with nearby NPC's often giving small clues whenever you happen to get stuck.

At first the level design in Journey of a Roach seems rather simple, but as you go on they grow complex. The levels are often big and have several different branches of items to collect for multiple different puzzles at once. However, instead of overwhelming you, the amount of puzzles allows you to bounce back and forth between them when frustrated, minimizing the time you'll spend blindly wandering about wondering what to do.

Solutions for the puzzles, much like the chattering, nonsense voices of the characters in Journey of a Roach, are often silly and happily humorous. At one point I was asked to bring an ant a burger and I fashioned one out of a piece of sponge, a shoe, and a handkerchief in order to continue onward in the story. The game ends on an equally laugh-worthy and heartwarming note, making it a great game if you want a quick, light-hearted adventure.

Great little adventure game! It's witty and cute and a lot of fun to play. Finished it in 3 hours so it's not that long but still worth it in my opinion. Very high quality gameplay and visuals. Two thumbs up :D

very good little game,some say its short,well it is, but that contains no negative meaning, just like i say a miniskirt, is it bad? not at all. some smart object combinations gives you "wow", may need to refer to a walkthrough at some point, but quite fun, get it on sale or trade it with your bundle game, i can say it worth my time.

I do not recommend this game to players who (like me) like to have proper dialogues. In this game you don't have any text but characters communicate with speech bubbles that contain images that are supposed to describe what a character wants to say. This is just something that I don't like. I prefer normal text-based talking in an adventure game.

From a technical prespective this game is well done. The mechanics of climing on the walls are nice but can also be annoying if you have to do a lot of backtracking.

So, it's not a bad game but just doesn't meet my taste.

Very nice indie game with its cute animations and cutscenes. The playthrough was short and puzzles weren't difficult but the experience was enjoyable none the less. For the sale price of $1.49 this is a great buy.

Just finished the overalll average game. I did enjoy most of it, and the drawings made me laugh. Bought it cheap and for that amount of money (around 1 eur) it is absolutly worth to play. Not for the full price tho.

The story ends a bit weak, which made it not satisfying for me. The puzzles are not too hard, apart from a few. I had to check a walkthrough once and few other times it took a lot of time to get an idea of the solution. Lot of trial and error.

In short, it is not a bad game, but also not a star. I really enjoyed the way it was setup, being able to walk on walls and ceilings. This gave the game a nice perspective. ALso I enjoyed the drawingstyle. A bit childish, but I don't mind that. Some funny pics there.

verdict: 6.5/10

A genuinely charming, adorable game! And who would have thought a cockroach could be so gosh-danged adorable?!

This is a game entirely without dialogue or writing -- the instructions, the character's ideas, conversations, etc. are explained entirely in thought-bubble cartoons -- and it just WORKS. It's a game you could share internationally without ever worrying about a language barrier! And the game itself is loads of fun to play! Set in a post-apocalyptic world in which things like roaches, rats, bees, spiders. etc. are the lone surviving inhabitants, players take on the role of an adorable little roach who wants to save his accident-prone friend from a series of escalating perils so that they can enjoy a beautiful flower together -- the first flower seen in a very long time. The puzzles are fun and engaging, the characters are likeable, the controls are simple and fun, and many of the adventures and puzzles you encounter take full advantage of the little roach's ability to walk up walls and along ceilings.

I really can't recommend it enough -- a truly delightful experience!

Short and cute adventure game with a pretty innovative movement system that involves walking up walls/ceilings. Daedelic really needs to hire an inbetweener for their 2d animations on games so that the FMV aren't so out of timing with the in-game action IMO. It's kind of jarring to be in a semi-smooth 3d/2d environment and suddenly get slow flipbook style animation where you pause for 3-5 seconds in between frames.

Funny and frustrating,i like the style and feel of the old point and click adventure games and this has alot of the same frustrating features of the same games.clicking objects over and over to find the right combination becomes the only issue when you want to move on and play,but the overall joy of moving on is worth the hard work :)

Em um cenário pós-Apocalíptico, acompanhamos a jornada de dois amigos (Baratas) que inicialmente tem como objetivo a busca de uma flor. Mas isso muda, e o que era uma busca logo vira um resgate, quando um dos amigos se perde.
O jogo é curto, você passa mais tempo pensando no que fazer, do que jogando de fato. (Inclusive uma das conquistas é terminar o jogo em 18 minutos)
Vale a pena jogar, pra quem gosta de um bom jogo Puzzle/Aventura esse é diversão garantida.

Journey of a Roach throws you into a topsy turvy animated world that's really quite charming. Climbing around on the ceiling can be a little bit dizzying, and at my time of playing there were a couple of little movement snagging areas. It's also a very short game, but I feel like the pace that it sets is good and I worry that if it was longer it might overstay its welcome. At 3.5 hours this was with me backtracking for a couple of achievements. The puzzles are logical and bizzare, the best kind.
It's cute and cheerful and unique enough to give a chance. The full recommended retail is high in my opinion for the time you will get out of it but if you can get it for >£5 i'd snatch it up. Daedalic published this for a small team and honestly as companies go these are guys that i'd be proud to be giving money to - sale or not.

Journey of a Roach is a short but sweet adventure game in quite the unusual setting. Playing as a roach you have to move around the scenery on the walls, ground and ceiling. The free movement on all surfaces of the rooms you are in makes the game quite different and adds to its charm. The puzzles are fairly interesting and not too hard.

The game has a bunch of missable achievements so would recommend checking them up so you can do them on your second playthrough (or even first if you don't mind the slight spoilers). The game also has a collectable achievements and multiple achievements tied to replaying the game; one for beating it without saving, one for beating it twice and then the challenge of the game...beating the game in under 18 minutes. The speedrun might take a practice run or two of the game to be able to pull it of but its very doable.

Time to 100%: 3-6 hours (depending on the amount of attempts for the speedrun)

Journey of a roach has a good story and interesting puzzles from the beginning to the end. Also it has lovable characters and nice songs.
It is a short game and you will finish it in a few hours but it worth it. It has cool achievements to unlock and this will double the playing time.
