Jolly Rover was such a pleasant surprise. Gaius James "Jolly" Rover is the hero of the piece, and he is cheerful, witty, and lovable. The other characters were also well developed, especially Juan, the very helpful parrot. The game proceeds through many town and forest scenes and along the way teaches pirate Voodoo and cooking. What more could anyone want? I found the game to be fairly easy, except for the forest scene with its multiple plates and crazy directions, but help is available online. The dialogue is clever if not downright laugh-out-loud funny at times. I think this game is suitable for young teens and above. I'll look forward to more titles from Brawsome Games.

This is an excellent point-n-click adventure that folds in just a bit of the traditional casual HOG elements - no not hidden object scenes, the built-in hint system. It's been awhile since I've played a traditional point-n-click adventure game; but if I'm remembering correctly, they didn't include a built-in hint system. This one does, and I loved the game for it since my biggest frustration about the traditional adventure game was getting to a point where I couldn't figure anything else out and getting stuck. (I can't think of a single adventure game that I didn't have to use a strategy guide at least once, some of them many times.) I loved the fact that you could choose how specific a clue you wanted to get so if I just wanted to be pointed in the right direction rather than be told exactly what to do, I could do so - or vice versa. Other things I enjoyed about the game were the colorful, crisp graphics (thought setting this in a world of dogs was an inspired idea!); the humorous dilogue; and the fact that the game was well-plotted out which meant you didn't have to do too much wandering around to perform the tasks you were supposed to do. The only complaints I had were that the ending felt a tiny bit too abrupt and that the ending scene never could have happened given the fact that the characters didn't have what they needed to have in order to make it occur. But those are minor complaints in the scheme of things - teeny, tiny blemishes on what is an otherwise terrific game.

Great game, very nice voice acting, good and entertaining story with lots of humor and nice comments from the main character. Feeling stuck ? Don't worry, the parrot is always there to help with hints at your request. If you like adventure and pirates, this is a good choice.

Smooth-playing game until you come to the wooden compasses, then things get really complicated for the young crowd. Very much fun to play though and it does have a good plot to follow! Looking forward to the sequel!

I wasn't impressed with this game. Click and read dialogue was about all there was to it. If I want to read I'll pick up a book. Wouldn't be good for kids either because the dialogue was in pirate-talk and you had to read very fast to keep up. I wouldn't waste my money on this one. Arrgghhh.

I had a lot of fun and laughs with this game. It can be quite kid friendly most of the time. Sometimes there's a some adult humor in there. And I really like the pirate talk...arrr! arrr! Avast ye Mateys!

I totally agree with the previous reviews - too much pirate talk and not enough game!
 | Added on: June 9, 2010
I totally agree with Sparkleannie's review. Way too much reading and pirate-talkin' madness for me. Plus trying to figure out where to go and what to do next which normally I don't mind that, actually quite into that on most games but this game got on my last nerve and quick. The dogs were really cute I'll give this game that much! Hopefully if you decide to give this game a whirl, you have Fun Pass cause if you do the one hour free trial you'll spend the majority of it reading a novel. Glad I have Fun Pass. Sorry Game House not impressed with this one AT ALL! Stop the madness and cut this off already!

hated this game. too much talking, and repeating the same dialogue over and over until you just happened to click the correct answer-never made any sense to me. definately NOT a game 4 kids. don't see how it could keep their attention, and i agree with one of the other reviewers-the pirate talk would be totally confusing to kids. don't know what the developers of this game were thinking-i couldn't grasp it...maybe u can...

Extremely well made game. The characters are very well developed and the game is outright hilarious. You play a pirate pooch in a world of other big dogs. As you complete the various quests that advance the storyline, you are given a new title and higher score (obviously). This game is top notch, high quality and lots of fun to play. There is a parrot that gives you two level of hints - just a hint of an answer or tell me the full story! Great game, demo time flew by and purchased right away.

I agree with Govegirl. This game was a blast! I thought it was funny, not boring by any means, and it did make you think. Graphics: Awesome. Yes, on the cartoon side, but still very well done. Music: Fit perfectly with the game. Game play: You really have to explore, but once you got the concept of the game, it wasn't too hard to figure out, but I did find myself going to a walk through. With all the objects on the ground you had to check them out to see what they were hiding, like crackers and coins (pieces of eight). The little parrot was an exceptional idea in case you got stuck, you asked the parrot, and if you wanted more info, you fed him a cracker. Those were all my pros about the game. The one con I have is that it was too short for a $19.95 price tag. I finished it one day so luckily I had Fun Pass and didn't have to pay it.

I had high hopes that this game might be similar to the Monkey Island games that I have enjoyed. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Although the characters are cute and the story line entertaining, the actual play is very confusing. I agree with previous posts that there is way too much dialogue and backtracking. I used the parrot for hints, but sometimes that still didn't make the next action clear. I was frustrated when I thought I did have the next step figured out and tried to use an object or do something, only to find that I had to first talk to the right person, get a correct response or something similar before it would work. For instance, I kept trying to attach the canvas to the basket to make a balloon, but it wouldn't work until after I put a bag over the vent and Jolly Roger had an "Aha" moment. I played it to the end and will admit to having some fun, but it could have been even more enjoyable.

It has been a while since I have played a humor based point and click adventure, too long. This one was a lot of fun. It is reminiscent of the original point and click adventures and though as someone else stated, it is no monkey island, well there really aren't a lot of that caliber around these days to select from, but this one comes closer than others I've played. I'd put this under the oldie but goodie category and highly recommend it to fans of the old style adventures.

Top notch. A fine point and click adventure, with a very helpful parrot. I am an idiot in this type of game, but even I made good headway. I like the British-type accents of the voices (I can't tell good Brit accents from bad, but like them all). The pirates talk quaint pirate talk. And there are optional subtitles, helpful for old ears like mine. The drawing and animation is excellent. But the main thing that endears it is the silly humor. Great work, brawsome. Thanks for this delightful game.

I quite enjoyed this game. The character were cute and colourful, the storyline was entertaining and having the parrot always available to ask for help without penalty was nice. The only thing I thought could have been improved was that certain actions could only be performed in a certain even though I had already figured out the solution to some problems I had to interact with specific characters or perform a certain action BEFORE I could use the final solution. One time I couldn't get quite enough feedback from the parrot on what to do next (making the plates work to navigate the forest) and had to go to a walkthrough site to get the next step. All-in-all I really enjoyed this and during a very painful and stressful week this lighthearted game was a nice way to get my mind off things.

This is a marvellous point and click adventure. The game is entertaining and fun to play. Bright and colourful graphics, fun and interesting characters- the voice acting is fabulous and an enjoyable story. Even its own inbuilt hint system, lots of extras to find throughout the game. If you are a fan of third person adventure games- or even if you are not- give this game a try!

I loved this game! This is one of my favorites on Gamehouse. It is a point and click adventure more than an arcade game (we should have a category for point and click types). It is similar to the old "Monkey Island" series. It has great humor and story and good puzzles. You don't get instructions on how to solve the game, because the puzzle is to figure out how to solve the game. There is a great hint system that gives you increasingly revealing hints, if you need a little nudge sometime. Please Gamehouse - get more games like this one!

This game gives you no clue of what to do. I downloaded a walkthrough, which worked. I hate games that give no directions!
