    Though Trover Saves The Universe is a short playthrough, clocking in around six hours, it's still worth taking a stab at it. The 3D control aspect is refreshing and the dialogue is hilarious (assuming you're not easily offended). Gameplay was fun and finding all those Power Babies is a reward in itself. Trover Saves The Universe is definitely a comedy adventure game that is fit to sit on the shelf with those other iconic titles in the genre.

    Whether you play in VR or on a plain screen, Trover Saves the Universe offers a fantastically engaging action platforming experience with a ton of dick jokes.
  3. If you like Just Roiland’s works, you like Trover Saves The universe, if you don't, you don't like this game.

    As far as my advice goes, it’s simple — for those who dig Rick & Morty, this is a must-buy, even if one doesn’t own a VR headset. Those who think the show is over-hyped, unfunny nonsense should stay as far away from it as possible. The gameplay or VR implementation isn’t anything earth-shattering, but as a delivery mechanism for Justin Roiland’s humor, Trover Saves The Universe is a fantastic success.

    Although gameplay for non-VR players feels like an afterthought, Trover Saves the Universe is an off-the-cuff experience with hilarious writing that ends far too soon.

    Fun game, game accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. Basically an interactive cartoon. The movement concept / accompanying lore isFun game, game accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. Basically an interactive cartoon. The movement concept / accompanying lore is pretty trippy in VR. If you like the garbage constantly spewing forth from Roiland's mind, you'll like this. Expand

    The game is about 5 hours long, which is just barely enough to justify the $29.99 price.

    If you like "lol I'm so random" type humor then
    The game is about 5 hours long, which is just barely enough to justify the $29.99 price.

    If you like "lol I'm so random" type humor then this game is for you. You would think the humor of Trover Saves the Universe would be similar to the humor of Rick and Morty, but it's not. It's just five hours of Roiland saying whatever random unstructured words came to his mind at that moment while you progress through a mediocre and uncompelling story. I have no problem with curse words, but a constant stream of them doesn't count as meaningful humor. One upside is that the combat is fun and the various puzzle mechanics are interesting, but neither can save the game, as I found myself getting bored for most of the 5 hours.

    Worth playing if you're a die-hard Roiland fan but otherwise I can't recommend it.

    It's a VR game you play with a controller. It's basically a neutered and dumbed down game. Also, I love Rick and Morty and Justin Roiland'sIt's a VR game you play with a controller. It's basically a neutered and dumbed down game. Also, I love Rick and Morty and Justin Roiland's humor, but MY GOD this game is just annoying and isn't all that funny. Just weird characters yelling made up nouns and cussing. Graphics kinda suck and gameplay is BASIC. The game is most like that Adventure Time VR game for the Samsung Gear VR, but that game was only $5 and was more fun. Expand
