Σχετικά με αυτό το παιχνίδι

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 a fun little game. No replayability whatsoever but it does not need replayability. Playing the game through once is just fine and it is an enjoyable experience.

A solid indie p&c adventure game that's admittedly just slightly rough around the edges in most segments, but charming and pleasant enough to drive you to the finish, despite some tedium here and there. You'll see some very inspired design visually and mechanically, you'll see some less inspired in the same category. Same with the writing / the humor. The voice acting for some characters is surprisingly great. It's quite short (playing time was @ 3 hours when I'd finished it first on Steam - I HAVE finished it before once, years and years ago, but retained almost no memory of the gameplay... apart from some vague memories about the voodoo mechanic, which might've knocked several minutes off the game time now I guess - but you won't mind. Unlocking the commentary might give an excuse to OCD-ish / completist players to do it all over again, especially since you'll likely miss (or, hopefully less likely, use) some of the crackers and the coins - which otherwise unlock music, art and character bios as you collect them. I'm not 100% sure I'd have done it if I hadn't missed the second to last coin in the game, but hey...

Anyway, it's a fun little game, recommended to fans of the genre... and people who dig the idea of dog pirates and find it cute. :)

If you enjoyed 1990s Lucasfilm adventure games then you'll definitely enjoy this.

This game needs so much more love and attention than it gets. It's honestly one of the best point and click games I've ever played. Everything about it- the story, characters, atmosphere, puzzled design, humor- hits on exactly all the right notes for me. I'd even go so far as to say it's better than Monkey Island (don't hate me).
It's really a shame it's so obscure as I'd love to see a sequel.
9/10

Pretty extensive storyline, with multiple different areas to explore. I wish I could go back and load my game at various previous points.

Saying this game was influenced by Monkey Island may be the understatement of the century. Despite the fact that it isn't too original, it has a charm that is hard to define. If you liked the Monkey Island series, give this one a try if the price is right. You won't regret it!

I enjoyed playing this game. The story was good to follow and it gave me that nostalgia of the old Sierra Online games without being as frustrating. Definitely a must get for all P&C enthusiasts.

This is an all-around okay adventure game. Nothing to give awards to, but nothing to go burn either. It took a few hours to beat, and I used the hint system twice in some spots where I didn't want to try every possible combination of item use.

I'm ashamed. I've begun playing the game in... 2012. Since then, it's been waiting to be finished.

Well, I did. Three years after.

Jolly Rover is a story about a dog that is a sailor and become a pirate because of an evil governor. Here's Gaius James Rover becoming Jolly Rover, specialized in freeing people, in using Voodoo spells and... in juggling.

The plot is nice, that's sure, though you're still asking yourself how Gaius became a sailor when he wanted to be a clown. Anyway, you have the traditional story family, the voodoo, the cannibals, the lady pirates...

The graphics are aimed to a young audience: it's colorful, in style with old cartoons that could have been broadcasted during my childhood and they're well done. Everything is easy to understand (well, if you're an English native speaker or skilled in the language, else, you may have an hard time to find what to do).

The dialogues are also good, with humor or naivity. Even the voice acting is quite good.

The gameplay is a traditional adventure game: discussing is giving you clues, observing objects can be rewarding, well, it's a good trip to memories with old titles of the same genre.

No, really, Jolly Rover is well-polished, well-balanced and adapted to a young audience. Recommending it with all my heart.

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.

This game was a great throwback to classing adventure games and rarely did I feel completely unable to figure something out. Liked the voice acting and the animation a lot. Had a few adultish jokes in there that I was happy to see to keep the game from getting too kiddy on me. Ended up a little short but that made for a fun adventure that didn't overstay it's welcome. If you liked Monkey Island you might like Jolly Rover.

At first glance this game will look like some sort of Monkey Island ripoff. And in a way, that might be the way to describe it. Personally, I think it's more of a love letter to adventure games of yesteryear, combining the atmosphere and humor typical of major adventure games of the 90s with a few modern twists, including quests to find hidden pieces of eight and crackers, and a clever hint system should you choose to use it. If there's one thing that I dislike about many modern adventure games, it's that they give hints much too easily. Making the puzzles difficult to solve and not forcing hints down your throat is better for an adventuring experience.
The developer commentary is quite fun and at times hilarious to listen to, ranging from anecdotes on the game's development to outtakes from the voice artists. (Be on the lookout for Janes singing "Party In The USA!") The addition of unlockable character profiles and artwork does feel like an attempt to put in some artificial replay value, but that's really my only major complaint with the game.
Overall, if you want a short but sweet ride through a colorful world created as an homage to 90s adventures, I recommend giving this game a shot.

Jolly Rover is a fun little classic point & click style adventure game. You play as James Rover, a dog who wants to be a clown but ends up becoming a pirate (yaaaar!). if you are familiar with this genre, then you probably know exactly what to expect - the game isn't breaking any huge molds. But what it does, it does well. None of the puzzles are too hard - if anything, most are too easy - but I thought the difficulty balance was OK (there is even a hint system available if you do get stuck). The game is also very short (5 hours or so). But if you are a fan of this genre, I think you should give it a go. The graphics are nice (though the lack of a hi-res option is lamentable), and the dialogue and voice work are good. The game is pretty funny as well. But it's definitely not for everyone. I wholly recommend it to anyone, like me, who cut their teeth on classic Sierra and Lucasarts adventure games. For anyone else, it might not be up your alley... but I do think it's worth checking out.

Jolly Rover is fun to play. A nice micture of classic point & click adventure with some casual game elements. Not to difficult, yet not to easy either. It got really funny dialogue with a couple of laughs and great characters.

Since there's no new "Monkey Island" episode to get our hands on (... and sadly, won't be any for a veeeery long while now that Lucas Arts got purchased and closed down by Disney...), it is good and refreshing to finaly have a newcomer trying its own brand new story!

This game has it all, and for an indie studio this is quite an incredible work they have made here: A point&click with a very practical interface, a nice pirate adventure, nice graphics, soundtracks and voice acting, decently animated, well written dialogues, an universe of its own (remember that old Dogtanian japanese cartoon?), and it's fun!

The only negative if could think of was the story being too short... but remember it is also the first shot of an independant studio with the resources you can imagine ...and they managed to make this great little game i now recommend you to try.

Jolly Rover is a good point-and-click adventure game that is similar and even makes references to the Monkey Island series. It's fairly straightforward, offers Steam achievements and allows you to kill time. Unfortunately, it is best run in windowed mode as it only supports one resolution.

I like the good mix of pirate humor and nonsense voodoo magic. Puzzles can be solved reasonably quickly with some subtle game hints. Nice short game to spend a few hours.
