    Jolly Rover has been the first adventure game i've enjoyed in a long time, the humour agrees with me and the difficulty curve is quite gently when compared to hardcore titles like the Sam and Max games from TellTale. The parrot hint system has slight hints and obvious hint that are blatant solutions for the desperate. This game has been a real joy to play.

    Tales of Monkey Island set me off on a bender of playing through a bunch of adventure games, this one included. At first it smelled like a goofy MI knockoff....but before long, the character were enjoyable (with good voice acting -- always important), the story was sufficiently engaging and the puzzles were downright fun. (Plus, it's hard not to appreciate a hint systems that pretty much guarantees that you'll never get completely stuck). By the time it was over, I wanted a sequel! Expand

    Too little, too thin, too derivative.

    Graphics and sound are okay, the gameplay and the controls are nothing new and the story is not the best of all time. Jolly Rover is a solid point & click-adventure in a 2D comic world.

    A good pirates adventure, Jolly Rover suffers in originality, trying to imitate too much Monkey Island.
