Daedalic, creator of Edna - and Deponia ™ series is successful not only as a development studio, but also proves as a publisher, a nose for good indie games.
Mutated insects have made their home in an air raid shelter and they discover the world you go. Let this point and click adventure welcome you to a hilariously bizarre end time world and join the roaches Jim and Bud on their way to the surface. The earth. Devastated. No survivors. But a small cockroach running around on the surface, rummages through the garbage.
The main gimmick of the game is the ability to climb any flat surface and crawl on the ceilings and walls of an environment.
This expands the area in which objects are hidden, which can be added to your inventory and combined in order to solve a puzzle. The places where you cannot climb are usually shown by pipes on the wall or other obstacles.
Since Journey of a Roach has no dialogue and isn't heavy on story, the majority of the experience comes down to solving puzzles.
This is where the game's point-and-click inspirations are clearest; most puzzles boil down to the tried-and-true "find item in one area, use item somewhere else" mechanics.
Most puzzle solutions do make logical sense (as opposed to requiring seemingly random item combinations that lead to more guesswork than brainpower, like many adventures of old.
Although the trip itself is charming, it's the puzzles that keep you ahead. None of the puzzles are very challenging, and you can finish the game in a single two- to three-hour session.
It’s also nice and smart with its audio, and the insectoid chattering is cute. It is, it has to be said, okay. You may wish for a longer adventure for the price. I would only recommend this game to die-hard fans of the point-and-click genre, but
I must say, the more Daedalus games I play, the more I like them all in all.
Score: 68 / 100
