100 Word Review - #T4 - Jolly Rover

Nowhere near as likeable as Guybrush either...
Jolly Rover

Genre – Adventure, Casual, Indie

Metascore 71%


Other Games by Developer – N/A

Tom's Current Playtime – 2.2 hours

As an adventure game, you have to count yourself very lucky to not be compared with 'Monkey Island'. Unfortunately for 'Jolly Rover', it's trying to be Monkey Island so hard that the comparison is very easy to make, and it does not come out favourably. As far as the genre is concerned, 'Jolly Rover' is par for the course, with the closest thing to a unique selling point being the magic spells you can perform at arbitrary intervals. 'Jolly Rover' is adequate at best, not delivering anything groundbreaking and it didn't manage to compel me enough to actually finish it.

Tom's Score – 5/10
