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.

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.
