Summary: We somehow overlooked Recoil Games’ charming gravity-troubling puzzle-platformer Rochard when it boinged onto Steam last November, but a few recommendations belatedly made their way to my curious ear recently. So I looked it up, and in turn I had a good time. Here’s why. ”

Excerpt: It’s kind of nice to play as an amicable dumb guy every once in a while. The Master Chiefs and Marcus Phoenixes are fine and dandy, but stepping into jiggly John Rochard’s unfashionable boots is something of a nice surprise.
Pros: The G-Lifter, Difficult and rewarding puzzles, Normal-guy Rochard
Cons: Shooting sections, Controls are hard to master, A few infuriating checkpoints
Excerpt: Релиз в Steam проекта Rochard прошел для многих незаметно – подавляющее большинство игроков услышали о нем впервые, увидев в списке новинок. Как оказалось, игра более чем достойна внимания, ведь она предлагает геймплей, похожий на тот, что мы видели в Trine , и может скрасить ожидание второй части...
