REVIEW QUOTES:

"Rochard kind of looks like a Metroidvania or Bionic Commando-style game at first, but it’s really neither. Instead, its focus is primarily on puzzle solving, and in that it succeeds, with clever challenges that get progressively more difficult." - Ars Technica (Verdict: BUY)

"Rochard is a breath of fresh air for the PlayStation Network and the gaming industry as a whole. It is an original ideal filled with great puzzles and an entertaining sense of humor." - Gaming Nexus (A-)

"Enjoy Rochard as it was intended, and let it bend your mind a bit. You won’t be sorry you did." - IGN (8.5/10)

Wow! Really, just wow! This is by far the best game on the Shield and one of the best on Android. The gameplay had me wanting to play this game everyday and the graphics made it a pleasure to look at. I was almost sad when I beat the game. Hopefully you guys have sequel in the works, because I definitely want more of what you're making.

Best game on Android Played this on my nVidia Shield during a long haul flight from London to Auckland and back. This is without question the best game on Android right now, and works flawlessly with the Shield. Pros: - Great story and voice acting - Excellent graphics with dynamic lighting and runs very smooth on Tegra 4 - Progressive gameplay is addictive and challenging - Controls are perfectly suited to a Shield controller as you need to use a lot of different buttons. Controls smoothly. Flappy Bird this is not. - Not a "casual" game - definitely a game for gamers and worth the ticket price. - Music and sound effects are good - NO MICROTRANSACTIONS THANK GOD Okay: - The length is sufficient, long for an Android game but short for a hardcore game. However, I appreciate that every level feels fresh there is very little rinse and repeat. Cons: - Nothing really... sometimes Rochard is a little small on the Shield screen but you can't penalise the developers for that. Overall: If you own a Shield this is an absolute MUST BUY GAME.
