Recensies

“...solide gameplay, hilarisch schrijfwerk en schitterende beelden”
9,5/10 – Gamezebo

“Jolly Rover is een charmante, op momenten uitdagende, zelfs tamelijk lange (voor een casual game) avontuurlijke cartoon-stoeipartij over de grenzen in de 19e eeuw, in navolging van The Secret of Monkey Island.”
B+ – Just Adventure

“Jolly Rover is een aantrekkelijke en erg vermakelijke stoeipartij die eigenlijk een must is voor iedere zelfrespecterende adventuregame-fan”
80/100 – PALGN

Over dit spel

It be the golden age of pirates! Dogs of the sea! Quite literally.

Our swashbuckling sausage-dog star is Gaius James Rover, son of the famous clown Jolly Rover, who died from a blow to the groin from an improperly loaded joke cannon.

Following the tragically comedic death of his father, young Gaius, who insists on using his middle name James, goes to live with his uncle, a wealthy plantation owner on a small Caribbean island. While practising a particularly tricky juggling move, he accidentally taints a barrel of rum with tobacco, creating a potent and addictive brew which he coins ‘Jolly Rover’, one of the most prized substances in the Caribbean.

Alas, the wealth of Jolly Rover sales only manages to fill the pockets of his uncle, and Gaius longs for action and adventure and, more importantly, the opportunity to start his own circus and follow in the footsteps of his father.

It is not long before the fumbled juggling ball of opportunity raps Gaius smartly on the head yet again. While his uncle is away, a large contract for Jolly Rover arrives from Guy DeSilver, Governor of the notorious Groggy Island, with payment upfront!

In a blinding flurry of optimism, Gaius pools his meagre savings with this advance and charters a ship and crew to take him to Groggy Island. Along the way he meets a colourful band of seafaring cutthroats, scallywags and rogues otherwise known as pirates.

It is here we begin to follow the short and stubby tail of Gaius across three wild and untamed tropical islands, as he attempts to fulfil his dream of starting a circus, hampered only by pirates, villains, voodoo, love and considerable lack of loot.

This is Jolly Rover, and it's a game in which, even after 16 hours of play (mostly from forgetting the game's running in a window), I still forget to talk to a certain person to get that damned piece o' eight.

Aside from Full Throttle when I was about eight, this is the first adventure game I've ever played to completion, and I'm pretty glad I did. Jolly Rover begins with Gaius James "Jolly" Rover making a booze delivery to Governor DeSilver on Groggy Island. But, pirates happen, and Jolly's taken prisoner. You guide his escape and subsequent adventures, which, according to my in-game playtime, will take about five hours to complete.

It's a point and click adventure game, so expect a lot of that, however they've also thrown in some spacebar pressing to mix it up a bit. Pressing space will highlight clickable things on the map, and text color tells you what you've investigated and what you haven't (white - seen it, blue - haven't seen it). But the best thing about this game, gameplay-wise, is that in the options menu, there's a walk speed slider, which I recommend slapping against the right side as soon as you boot the game up.

You can rate the difficulty of puzzles in this game from "derp" to "how in God's name would I have figured that out without a guide (or Juan)?" and I'll admit eventually I just used the really handy guide by LimiT in the Community Guides.

Graphically the only complaint is that the game's made to be viewed in 800x600, and if you fullscreen the game, what you're going to get is a stretched out 800x600 with black bars on the side to keep the game at a 4:3. It's not that big of a deal and doesn’t actually ruin things, but people with big monitors might find it bothersome. Aside from that, though, this is a pretty game. The characters and story both fit the cartoony art style perfectly, and the voice acting makes a lot of not-indie games look really bad.

But is it worth playing? Definitely. It’s a well put together game in which I encountered no bugs, no glitches, no sudden day ruining crashes. My only real complaint is how ridiculous some of the puzzles can be (I mean really, if I didn’t have a guide, I never would have known what to do with the damn corn). Is it worth $9.99? Nope. Put this on your wishlist and wait for a Steam sale unless adventure games are your thing.

the idea of pirate dogs didn’t particularly catch my interest, but i heard jolly rover was pretty good. it doesn’t take itself seriously and doesn’t have the most interesting story, but the puzzles and art are really nice. sometimes the silliness is entertaining — i especially enjoyed watching the current quest update during dialog. while it sometimes could have done more to point me in the right direction, most of the puzzles were intuitive and satisfying. there are also plenty of crackers around to feed to your all-knowing parrot in turn for more useful hints.

i definitely recommend jolly rover to adventure game fans as well as anyone who would consider playing an adventure game. while the cartoon-dog style might make you think it’s appropriate for children, there are a couple things you might want to know: it says “♥♥♥♥♥es” (in the female dogs context) once and has some sexual connotations that most children probably wouldn’t notice.

I'd heard good things about this point and click adventure game, so I decided to try it out. I played it during my lunch breaks at work and found it to be quite enjoyable. It recalls fond memories of The Secret of Monkey Island, one of my favorite games of all time.

Puzzles were mostly simple, though I'll admit I had to feed Juan the parrot a few crackers for hints on occasion. A few nice ideas streamlined the experience. First of all, holding down the Space Bar would highlight objects around the room that you could interact with. Also, the color of text hovering over objects changes color only if a new reaction will result.

The game has a fun sense of humor, and for some unknown reason I feel that pirates and dogs make a great combination.

I highly recommended Jolly Rover to classic point and click adventure game fans, especially those fond of the Monkey Island series.

This game is suprisingly good, at first impressions I thought it was going to be a badly put together story and ganeplay, oh how wrong was I!!. Jolly rover reminds me a lot of the monkey island series. The graphics are retro styled and work well with the whole layout of the ganeplay itself. It is narrated throughout which is great as the voices add to the fun of playng, Its not a huge world based game. It has a few locations and three main islands with many explorable parts, not a huge amount of interacable characters but this to me stops it getting boring and clustered. The story is good and the puzzles are fun and not too hard. It is a light ha=earted game but worthy of a 9/10 I would recommend to anyone who wants a casual easy flowing game. If you enjoy click and points give it a try and for the price you cannot lose.
