Eric writes: "Rochard is a sidescrolling platformer with a depth that makes it look like a 3-dimensional affair. You play as John Rochard, a space miner for the company Skyrig whose day just keeps getting worse. You weild a gun with the ability to pick up and launch small objects. In time, you find a Rock Crusher that shoots bullets and three different grenade types that use what is called ‘explosium’ as ammunition. You also unlock the ablity to reduce gravity by holding down L1. While gravity is reduced, Rochard can jump higher, pick up bigger objects, and launch items farther than usual. Rounding out the cast are Skylar, John’s coworker, and Maximillion, John’s boss and the game’s antagonist. Together they knit a decent story."
