Happy Birthday Jim & Bud!

Exactly one year ago Journey of a Roach got released. To celebrate this, all the insects decorated the bunker for Jim's first birthday! There are presents, party hats and exploding stuff! There's even a rumor about an extra achievement you can get, something about finding hidden birthday candles...

To play the birthday version of Journey of a Roach you have to start a new game and confirm that you want cake. Of course you can still play the normal version if you don't like cake. This birthday version will be playable until 31. November, after this date you won't be able to start a new birthday game.

We fixed some more bugs and looked into the 64bit Linux problems (still working on that one though). For more detailed info please check out the change log

Surprisingly original quest. A bit childish graphics and total "all-good and nice" atmosphere. Story is short and without unexpected twists, but it makes you eager to explore further.

Very interesting way of communicating with world and NPCs - there is no speech, only comic bubbles with actions or story.

Generally worth playing.

What is this game?

You are a cockroach on a post nuclear war world where there seems to be no humans and animals/insects have gained an enourmous size and inteligence. Your friend finds a flower and wants to show it to you, but then an accident accurs, he falls and you fall with him, you both get trapped and something happens and he falls through a hole, then you go on your journey to find him. An stright point an click adventure.

The Pros

The game have a really charming style, good controls and nice narrative with likable characters and lighthearted story with cool puzzles.

The Flaws

For once, the cutcenes seem like more of a storyboard than a cutscene, very sketchy and simple, the only other negative is that the game is very short and the admission price is a bit too high (maybe 5$ worht of content).

Conclusion:

There is very little wrong with this game beside the price, is a cute little story that you should experience if possble.

Score: 8/10 Good Game

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.

Cool short game about best bro-buddies. Thank you Jim, but our Bud is in another castle. Also, cool cockroaches don't look at explosions.

A cute little adventure game with the added twist of being a roach who can climb walls. It's short, but worth a few bucks.

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.

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.

DO NOT BUY IT FOR A FULL PRICE !!!

Journey of a Roach is an adventure game that is in my opinion aimed for the more casual players. The game itself is not too long and most puzzles are not very hard, but it is great as light entertainment and a fresh breeze for those who are tired of the conventional scraping for survival post apocalyptic games.

The game-play is fairly creative being able (and having to) climb up on walls and ceilings to reach certain objects adds a bit of extra flavor to the conventional rub item A to item B mechanics. I am definitely sure that it's not worth the full price, my price would be no more than 4.99 USD / 3.99 EUR.

But I get it in one of my Humble Bundle packages so I can't complain (7/10).

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.

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

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

This game is pretty painful.
It's one of the "find random things in crazy places and just see what happens" sort of point and click games that doesnt take much actual skill or thought. Plus the whole screen-moves-when-you-walk-up-walls thing had my stomach doing bacflips.

Im giving up. I can't take any more of this.

This is a real eye-opener game. Unique design concept deep heart and it made ​​a very good detail. Plot is entirely inferior to Hollywood blockbusters. Role model is very fine, making good interface. So what? You worth trying to play!

強烈推薦~
①有中文,簡體繁體都有
②漫畫風格.不能在愛了.小動物萌化.
③操作簡單,硬要說的話.算是解謎類的..
就是尋找物品合成或者.
基本沒有文字提醒.全看提示小動畫.
④小動物的配音很萌
不足.價格有點貴~.不過可以考慮找3DM啊遊民下載玩玩吧.畢竟還是單機遊戲~

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.
