Rochard, an action packed side-scrolling puzzle platformer for the PlayStation®Network, follows the story of the humble astro-miner John Rochard as he uses his wits and everyday mining tools to fend off space pirates, save his team of missing miners and solve the mystery behind the discovery of an ancient alien artifact.
Rochard tests players’ coordination and wits as they manipulate gravity to their advantage, changing it at will to solve environmental puzzles and advance through each level. By using the upgradable G-Lifter, the main tool of the game, players can lift and maneuver heavy objects around the environment, and eventually swing, jump and propel themselves huge distances throughout each level.
Developed by Recoil Games, founded by former Remedy Entertainment team members, Rochard is a fun and original space adventure game that features a resourceful hero, ominous villains, rugged machinery, big explosions, even bigger stunts and sharp one-liners.
I’m not really sure what happened here but I must have fallen asleep at the wheel and totally forgot about this game. I know I looked at it a few days ago and meant to do a post but some how it slipped my mind. A little earlier this evening I was browsing the good old internetz and I some how came across this game again. After looking at the database I noticed it was missing. So without further adieu, here’s some information and a video for the new up coming exclusive, from Recoil Games.
So John Rochard, an Astro Miner is drilling for Turbinium in the deep recesses of space one day when all of a sudden his crew disappears and space bandits attack. Good thing that John isn’t one of the guys at PS3BLOG.NET and is actually a team player. So what’s John’s mission you ask? Well nothing out of the ordinary really, just manipulate gravity, complete rock hard puzzles, beat some baddies, save the crew and be back in time for tea! Man I could really go for some team right now.. oh and just in case I left something out, hit the jump and watch the video.
