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

Info over het 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 was given the key for this by the Brawsome guys after hitting up their table at PAX Aus 2013, where they were showing off MacGuffin's Curse, and while I'm definitely a fan of point and clicks, I had the middling expectation that I'd put maybe an obligatory ten minutes into it before deleting it from my computer, never to resurface from the depths of my steam backlog again.

I ended up completing it and clearing all the achievements in essentially one sitting. It's really very charming and funny, with a good 2-ish+ hours of casual gameplay, depending on how much you dawdle around. Definitely one for the to-buy list if it goes on sale for <$5

Simple, cute, amusing point and click. Fun story and characters. I loved playing it.

Scale: 1=despised 2=negative 3=could go either way 4=positive 5=loved

Game design: 4/5 The game is really tight and everything works well. However, there are some extra things needed for 100% that you really have to guess at to accomplish. You need to click everything in every scene twice before you move on to a new area of story because you can't go back, and that doesn't guarantee that you'll find everything because there's no reason for a lot of it. It adds a little replayability because it's a short game, but that's a cheap tactic.

Tone: 5/5 Fun. Cartoony. Pirates. Great things working great together.

Personal skew: 4/5 This is a pretty easy and short game. If you are a hardcore point & click gamer who wants a challenge and for some reason you paid full price for this game, you'll probably feel pretty ripped off. But for me this game was great fun.

This is a point and click adventure game. If you liked games like Monkey Island, sure you will reasonably enjoy it. Replay value is very limited unless you missed some of the achievements. The voice acting was good, the puzzles were simple. Its a game you play when you have played all the greats already. Honestly I bought this game on sale, Its filler something you play between waiting for the return of the golden age of classic point of clicks. Which sadly is never going to come back again. I enjoyed it. It made me miss my old adventure games. If you can get it on sale I'd reccomend it.

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.
