关于这款游戏

Nuclear war, post apocalypse, barren and lifeless wastelands.
Lifeless? Not so much!
Mutated insects have made their home in a bomb shelter and they're set on exploring the world.
Let this point&click adventure welcome you to a hilariously bizarre end time world and join the roaches Jim and Bud on their journey to the surface.

Journey of a Roach tells the story of two roach-buddies, who want nothing but see the surface world.
On their way up, they meet all kinds of bizarre and ludicrous insects inhabiting the post-apocalyptic earth. In atmospheric 3D point&click adventure style you'll take control of Jim the roach through the bomb shelter, effortlessly crawling your way along walls and ceilings. This innovative and dynamic game mechanic creates opportunities for a wholly new puzzle design. Fondly designed speechballoons offer an unconventional new dialogue experience and the soundtrack delivers and atmospheric, post-apocalyptic mood.

前几天玩的,一直忘了给好评了

可爱的动画画风,剧情穿插着漫画。随着环境的改变,BGM也跟着变,甚至你站在两个场景的中间,可以明显听到双声道BGM。

游戏的推理线索纯粹的靠看图联想,还挺有意思的。如果卡壳了,可以度娘攻略。

一周目玩了有两个多小时吧(有两个地方一直过不去,直到看了攻略23333),二周目玩了有不到半小时吧。。然而有个成就是18分钟通关


总的来说还不错,但是容易眩晕的玩家还是慎重玩

So, I figured that at a sale price of $1.50 this couldn't be that bad. And although it's been a while since I did a puzzle game in the vein of this, it seemed OK initially. But I don't know what it is exactly, something about the sound design and color scheme, but this game makes me feel physically ill. I can't put my finger on exactly what it is, but the overall audio-visual design just somehow makes me feel nauseus. It seems like it should be a fine game beyond that.

As can be viewed in the trailer, this game offers a 3D experience playing as a roach. Well, 2.5D, because some obvious wall switches can't be made and you are forced to folllow a set path, which annoyed me big time.
The puzzles are not really clever and are often too long (why collect 5 flies in so many ways to progress). When playing, you will walk a l-o-t! There even is an achievement for that called "Hardcore Walking". You need to walk 5000 something to get this, but when you need to walk so much to solve puzzles, this one is easy to get.

At first, I liked the game very much, but in the end, it became a burden and I used a walkthrough for the last part as I was quite done with walking aimlessly.

I sat down to play an easy point and click game and lost my whole night to this game. Finished it in one sitting, basically.
That isn't toitally a bad thing. I loved the art and graphics. The story was cute enough. It was a fun take on your avg point and click, with the keyboard movement arrows. I thoroughly enjoyed it. My only wish is that it was a longer storyline because it passed too quickly and now I dont know what to do with my night.

Hey everyone and this is my review about the game!

This is a Point and click puzzle game.


Interface/Menu/Settings

There is a master volume, Sound and music slide bar.
There are many many different languages. Almost every language.
There are many Resolution sizes.
You can play in fullscreen and window mode.
You can play this with a xbox controller. (However if you are playing the game with a xbox controller, suddely the keyboard isn't responding anymore.)

About the game.

You are able to skip cutscenes with ESC.
There are multiple save slots.
Controls play nicely. i do recommend to play on keyboard then with a controller.
The graphics are shellfaded and characters are some what 3D animated.
If you press Q, You will open the map. You can also find the cutscenes here again.
There is an in-game tutorial. They will tell and learn you new stuff slowly as you move on.
Small diagolues are drawn and Semi-animated.
Game is somewhat humouristic.
You can zoom out with the spacebar button, which will also show "interacting objects" in the current area.
There are collectables. :(
There is no Help or hint button that "spoil" it for you. There are only little animation balloons to give a small tip.

Other things.

Game is kid friendly.

I Give this game a 8/10

well have enjoyed my 2 hours but at this point I am done with the game I am at a poit that I can no go any further due poor Puzzle lay out, I read how easy they are like no big deal and I call BS, I love a good puzzle game but this lay out is very poor and the puzzles them self make no sense, so if you like walking in circle then this is the game for you, Most of the puzzle pieces you get you have no idea what they are in order to be able to use them so all you do is click, click, click till something will work but that is as good as it gets, and no hints and no hope the point that I am stuck at I have no more puzzle piece to collect much less even be able to use and I am just stuck in the same 3 rooms so now over an hour stuck in the same spot I say good day to this game damn shame being I did like it but don't care to waste a life time much less another hour stuck for nothing, well I go the game for cheap so no loss, just another cobb web collect game now, unistalled and on to other games just can't see wasting any more time on this poor lay out for a puzzle game but great concept, good luck, have fun then beat your head in the wall and ask why did I even go down this road with this game. I only recommend if you can get it cheap being you will waste money but it is different to see so I guess that makes up for it.

作为一款解密AVG本作最大的特色就是随着小强变化的视角(容易眩晕者慎入)。针对旋转视角在倒数第二章接电那里有比较好的设计,但是感觉有很多地方没有充分利用这点优势设计谜题,是个遗憾。慢悠悠5小时通关,期间羞耻的看了五六次攻略。谜题难度适中,但更多的靠想象力(脑洞)解密,除了最后一章设计相对精密外,谜题逻辑性多不强。画面初见令人耳目一新,但艺术风格到后面有很多不太统一的地方。主线故事很简单也很短,有些地方好像牵扯到了环保、禁欲、反战之类的东西(可能是我想多了),但也没有更深入的解读。总之如果想找一款休闲向的小游戏度过一个无聊的午后,又没有3d眩晕症的话,可以入这款游戏。
本来想给个及格分,独立游戏、解谜游戏、旋转视角这些东西加一分。

This is a fresh take on a point and click game, but still a point and click at heart. It has a quirky sense of humor running through. Nice clean artwork and the puzzles are not too obscure. Dont be put off by the publisher of this game, it stands out on its own merits. Take a look below to get a feel for the art style and basic game mechanics. (some early puzzels are completed in this)

通关撒花:小强历险记。一只小强勇救基友的故事,属于解谜游戏,和Deponia出自一家。

流程意外的很短,不过因为画面是会跟随小强的视角不停旋转,如果会晕的话请考虑好再入。

触发事件之后的过场小动画很生动,小强的基友被捉住以后一直“八嘎八嘎”的惨叫也是很欢乐的。游戏没有文字,都是通过简笔画来表现物品之间的联系,需要玩家尽情发挥想象力。说起来倒是有些像机械迷城,不过要简单很多。顺便说下这游戏还支持手柄,好评。

This is a very well made and extremely cute game about a roach friendship. :)

If you like point-and-click adventure games you might want to check this game out, but let me say this: Don't buy it for the full price, because you're in for a disappointment (given that you're not made out of money). As cute as it is, it's also extremely short. I completed it in about 3~ hours and that's mostly because some of the puzzles took me a while to figure out (the game is completely non-verbal, you only get pictures to explain the puzzles).

a cute and funny but short point and click game, the graphics are 3D cartoon/comic style just like in deponia (no wonder this games is made by the same devs ) the music is funny and enjoyable , no voice acting ( a game about insects so dont be surprised :p ) ,gameplay is smooth ( WASD to move and the mouse to interact with objects ) the puzzles are easy to figure and solve but some of them are soo easy that you will miss them at the first try , didn't face any glitches or bugs .
the only thing i dont like about the games is the price ,the game is short (around 2h to complete and you can completed under 18 min if you're fast enough there is even an achievement for it ) and they are charging 14.99$ for it , in my opinion i think its too much (9.99 $ would be the best price for it) but good thing its on sale most of the times ( just like now its on sale for 1.49$ while i'm writing this review)
so grabe i on sale or in a bundle 7/10

作为一个90 OFF之后不到10元RMB还免费送原声的游戏来说还挺值的……原价买就是天坑了。

本作是由一个小工作室 Koboldgames 和Daedalic 合作开发的作品,并且由Daedalic发行。作为一个小工作室的点点点作品,本作无论是游戏本身还是相关的营销定价,都充分显示出了一种“我就是名不见经传的小公司开发的小(两)游(个)戏(G)有种你来打我啊”的感觉。

优点:
1. 画面:本作的画风很可爱,虽然是3D游戏,但是伪2D的风格使得游戏和过场动画搭配的很和谐。而且虽然是辐射之后的废土世界,场景中依然有大量色彩,让玩家不至于无聊。
2. 音乐:木耳表示挺好听的……BGM也很赞。和其它卡通类游戏相似,本作的语音也走的抽象路线,听到里面的几首歌的时候还蛮乐的。
3. 气氛:整个小强世界非常欢乐,即使是最后的所谓反派辐射神教也是以喜感的形象出现,玩起来非常轻松。而且地下世界做的非常生活化,如果这个世界观再延展一下就更好了。
4. 操作:虽然是3D点点点游戏,不过点点点的难度并没有随之升高,因为Space键的全景视角+热点提示依旧存在。而且整个游戏支持手柄操作,尽管我是键鼠党,但是个人觉得这应该算是个优点。不过晕3D的各位还是谨慎入手,主角作为一只能满墙爬的小强,各种天旋地转可能会触发晕3D反应,敬请注意。

缺点:
1. 优化太差。作为一个2个G的游戏,本作的Loading时间惊人的长,而且后面的场景特别卡,最后放动画的时候卡的简直是丧心病狂,这两点让人非常不爽。而且无论是退出游戏还是Loading game都要等很长一段时间,虽然全程不存盘有成就但是这也太坑了吧。
2.流程太短。故事非常简单,绿眼小强在满是辐射的废土世界救基友。该故事的长度之短,短到有个成就是18分钟内通关……好吧如果是第一次玩不跳动画不看攻略还是能玩到2h的。非常短的主线相应带来的就是非常弱的角色刻画和几乎没有的二周目价值,二周目的意义也就是冲成就or看动画。

中评:
1. 解谜:本作个人觉得解谜的难度适中,除了一些考验操作的3D谜题之外,其它谜题只要有一些相关解谜游戏的经验就能轻松过关,偶尔有一些小亮点。不过这种设置也是有人觉得简单有人觉得难(尤其是要冲速通成就的玩家),我觉得对解谜新手而言这游戏还是不错的。

总评:适合在打折or进包的时候轻松一把的游戏,原声爱好者们也可以尝试一下。

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.

tl;dr -> Play as a cockroach on a never-ending quest to save his useless brother who keeps getting owned by every situation. 11/10 older brother simulator.

I got this game gifted to me by a generous friend and was interested to play because I wanted to try a refreshing point-and-clicker with an interesting artstyle. I was pleasantly surprised with my gameplay experience.

The aesthetics are very nice - the amount of detail in the game world is high. During brief cutscenes, the artstyle switches to a charming, fun cartoon appearance. The music and sounds are good and add to the positive, comical vibe emitted by the gameplay. Much of the game consists of you travelling throughout an extensive bomb shelter, trying to fix all of the troubles caused by your roach friend/brother.

The controls are simple and easy to learn - I recommend using a controller to play, but the keyboard and mouse combo work fine. There is a quick tutorial that helps you understand the mechanics of the game. Clues are constantly given, and trial-and-error will help you progress through the game most of the time. The learning curve is minimal to moderate depending on your experience with point-and-click adventure/puzzle games. Most of the puzzle solutions are intuitive - or at least hinted at heavily when you interact with said objects.

Gameplay consists of you moving around different rooms of a bomb shelter, usually solving problems for other people in order to progress. As a cockroach, you can walk along walls and the ceiling, changing the orientation of the camera if you do so; you cannot jump, only walk. You can pick up items of interest, combine them in your inventory (if applicable), and use them to interact with the world (indicated by a puzzle icon over an item). Unlike many point-and-clickers, you can actually move your character around without using the mouse - something I found refreshing after playing many mouse-only point-and-clickers.

Another nice thing I appreciated in this game is the depth of puzzles - many times, you have to do an extra step to solve a problem. For example, there is a part where you need to collect baby flies that are located throughout a set of rooms. One of the flies is racing in a circle around a makeshift track - to capture it, you need to place a net on the wall, repair it, and physically block the fly's way so it goes around you (straight into a ramp that launches it into the net). These type of dynamic puzzles help prevent the game from getting stale.

Overall, the game is a very well-done point-and-clicker that makes up for its simpler storyline with fun, comical puzzles. If you are interested in the point-and-click genre, then you should definitely give this game a try. I normally try to avoid mentioning price if I feel it is unnecessary, but I do think that the retail price ($16.99 CAD) is a bit steep. At the time of writing this review, the game is discounted at 88% ($2.03 CAD), and that is more than a fair price for the value you are getting.

Recommend!

Cheers,

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)

A journey of a roach is a third person point and click adventure game developed by Kobold games and Daedalic entertainment.

Gameplay
In AJOAR you do your usual point and click games mechanics, aka: picking up items and using them on other things or combining items.
But it has a unique mechanic: wall climbing it works pretty well though on some stuff it seems you can climb it but you cant.
There's one complaint i have there's a puzzle pretty close to the end where you to get electricity to a screwdriver but, you can't let the pipes touch it to much or else it resets.
The game isn't that long, i kinda took too long with the electricity puzzle so it should be around 3 hours give or take.

Difficulty
If you played other point and clicks games this game should be pretty easy sometimes you just have to look at what the npcs say then you'll usually find out what to do.

Replayability
Theres not much replayability but you'll probably have to do two playthroughs if you want all achievements, you need to do a speedrun collect all worms and get all secret item combos.
There's a guide if you want to know how to get em.

Audio
The soundtrack is really charming, the music switches if you enter a different rom and there's a nice amount of variation and some stuff sounds familiar.
lLke when you enter spider grandma's room the music changes to one of those wind up boxes ish music, and the soundtrack is free!

graphics
The game has a cartoony artstyle and it has a drawn style, the characters talk with bubbles which fits really well with the cartoony ness.
all of the cutscenes are drawn and look really good.

Story
a nuclear bomb dropped so everyone's is dead but insects.
Blue roach finds a flower and goes to tell green(the character you play) when try to go up a bird thinks you're fingers are worms,
And bites you so you fall into this room with a cobweb.
Then you try to save green and try to save him from the cobweb and you try to get back up but then blue falls through the ground(or something similar can't remember exactly) and then you try to go save him.

Final verdict
Short and decent third person point and click adventure game with a original mechanic and a story about two roaches who just wants a flower.

If you're a fan of point and click games you should definitely pick this game up.

Journey of a Roach is a short but cute 3D Puzzle Adventure slash Point and Click game and a result of a colaboration between German P'n'C veterans Daedalic Entertainment and the relatively young studio Koboldgames from Switzerland.

STORY
You play as Jim, a cockroach living in an underground bomb shelter that is controlled by an army of ants. When your cockroach buddy accidentally crashes through the floor and gets captured by the ants, you set out on a quest to rescue him, end the ants' terror regime and find a way to get out of the bomb shelter and to a peaceful place somewhere else.

HUMOR
There aren't any actual dialogues in the game. All of the communication between the characters takes place in the form of incomprehensible sounds (sort of similar to baby mumbling) and comic bubbles with drawings that show what the characters try to say. Some of those illustrations are pretty hilarious and probably wouldn't be remotely as funny, as if the characters would actually say 'I found this plunger. Shall I put it on my head?'. It's not the kind of humor that makes you laugh out loud and spit your drink on the screen, but it's amusing and cheerful throughout the entire game.

VISUALS
While the game is advertised as a Point and Click game, it hasn't much to do with the usual pre-rendered, stiff and sometimes blurry enviroments known from other P'n'C games. It's actually best compared with The Walking Dead where pretty much everything is in 3D and where you can freely move around while still retaining the classical P'n'C feel of finding objects, combining them, solving puzzles and so on. Due to the comic style of the visuals, you don't have to worry about blurry textures or anything, either - it all looks sharp and just sooooo cute. :D

GAMEPLAY
Being a P'n'C adventure at its heart, the game adds some welcome addition to the fairly worn out genre as it basically plays like a sidescroller where you control Jim with WASD (or the arrow keys, respectively) and the actual item handling is done with your mouse (you can also use a gamepad, if you wish to do so - works great). To add to that (and since you're a cockroach, of course) you can also climb on walls and ceilings to progress through the levels, reach items or just avoid being seen by the ants.

It takes a bit getting used to and you sometimes accidentally climb a wall or a crate that you just wanted to pass, but overall the mechanic works great and gives you another way of freedom to explore your enviroment.

Puzzle-wise, the game is fairly easy as most puzzles only consist of picking up items, combining them and using them on something or someone, but since it's mostly quite obvious what has to be used how and where, they shouldn't provide that much of a challenge for experienced P'n'C or Puzzle game players. However, since the devs probably tried to also appeal to a younger audience, it wouldn't have been of much use to incorporate ultra-hard puzzles that you can't solve without consulting a walkthrough, so I'm generally fine with that.

PLAYTIME & REPLAYABILITY
Beating the story took me roughly 3 hours, which is rather short for a game like this, but personally I will always prefer shorter games with tight gameplay over games that artificially extend the playtime by repeating the same levels or gameplay elements over and over.

Once you've played through the game, there's not much else to do apart from hunting the remaining achievements, however, there's one particular achievement that requires you to beat the game in less than 18 minutes, so that adds at least a bit of challenge and replayability to the game.

CONCLUSION
Journey of a Roach is an extremely cute, cheerful and overall fun game for a relaxing evening, so if you like P'n'C games (especially with a gameplay twist) and don't get putt off by the game's length, make sure to check it out!
