このゲームについて

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.

Jolly Rover is a traditional 2D point and click adventure, including casual elements, such as an integrated hint system, and task bar. Bonus elements include unlockable Captain Bio's, music, concept art and developer commentary!

  • Over 60 beautifully rendered scenes to explore

This is Jolly Rover, and it's a game in which, even after 16 hours of play (and forgetting the game's running windowed), 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.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Cute and charming point-and-click adventure. Decent voice acting, animation, exploration, story, and puzzles. There's a good hint system as well. Very reminiscent of early King's Quest titles, but with a more modernized game design.

Cute little point-and-click adventure. As par for the course there are some obnoxious puzzle bits that don't make sense or work the way you'd like, but there is a built-in help system, so that's a nice touch.
Overall, not bad for a few dollars, but I wouldn't spend more then that.

Monkey Island lovers, move over. There's a new dog in town! (Okay, I'll stop)

Originally, I played it just for the Summer Camp achievement. This game is fantastic! I'm not very good at Point & Click Adventure games. My brain can't seem to move beyond that process of combining a "Gorilla" and a "Woman" to create a "Monkey Wrench."

Jolly Rover isn't like that. There's layers of hints for your skill level. The puzzles make sense, the story never lags behind, and it's a pretty funny game. It's actually the first adventure game I beat without looking up spoilers!

When i first popped open this title, I lacked a will to continue due to it being outside of my comfort zone (genre wise). Fastforward 16 hours later and it's a title that impressed me all the way to its ending. I recommend if in the mood for some lighthearted adventure.

A fun little adventure game filled with pirates, voodoo and a shipload of dog puns. Amusing throughout, Jolly Rover offers inoffensive, yet quality humor, challenging puzzles that never cross the infuriating logic line and simply a charming experience overall.

If you can get past the crappy res it's stuck on, this is a really cool game. I enjoyed it immensely, and it's more than worth the money and time. We need more point-and-click adventure games!

I love the story, the wacky characters, the puzzles are fun and creative, the visual style, I love the "silly clown", I just love it. It's an amazing indie game. I never really liked the point and click adventure games before but after playing Jolly Rover I started to love the genre. I definitely recommend it. It's worth every penny. I'm really hoping for a sequel one day.

a really fun adventure game that harkens back to the old-school LucasArts type from the 90s
