Rochard

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Side-scrollers, while they still exist, have mostly become indie fare recently while larger companies focus on different genres. Enter Rochard , a side-scrolling physics platformer/puzzler that combines a slightly twisted sense of humor with some genuinely entertaining gameplay, both of which help to distinguish this title from the rest in this category.

Rochard review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • 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. Everything from his southern drawl to his by-the-book mentality just screams “normal, ugly, and dumb” louder than our ex-girlfriends ever could. Which is why he’s the kind of character only an indie studio would dare create.
  • Pros: The G-Lifter, Difficult and rewarding puzzles, Normal-guy Rochard
  • Cons: Shooting sections, Controls are hard to master, A few infuriating checkpoints

Environmental Puzzles Meet Simple Fun With A Gravity Gun

Game Informer
19 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Concept: A 2D platformer that mixes gravity control with environmental puzzles Graphics: Rochard’s cartoony visuals don’t ooze personality, but they get the job done Sound: The voice acting is solid and the clever mix of songs helps make up for its otherwise boring soundtrack Playability: The platforming controls sometimes feel floaty, but manipulating objects with the G-Lifter is spot on Entertainment: Rochard’s puzzles don’t provide much challenge, but they are fun to...

Rochard

Playstation Illustrated
4 December 2011
  • Excerpt: You have to like Rochard for its original hero and take on platformers. Rather than playing as a fuzzy mascot or retreading well-worn ideas, Rochard attempts to do something different and carve out a space for itself in the genre. At the same time, in trying to do something original, the gameplay never pushes beyond a small set of boundaries, opening the door for repetition. I absolutely love Rochard 's presentation.

Not Quite Rock Solid

GIN
3 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Welcome back Time Wasters and let me regale you with the story of Rochard (Ro-chard, not Roc-hard by the way) and what it could have been. I've got to say that I was really anticipating Rochard and sadly I think that might have been what did it in for me. There was a lot of hype around Rochard as an indie game and I was excited to play it. Sadly, though, I was disappointed. Rochard starts out by introducing us to its main cast John Rochard, Skyler, and Maximillian.
