Side-scrollers, while they still exist, have mostly become indie fare recently while larger companies focus on different genres. Enter Rochard, a side-scrolling physics platformer/puzzler that combines a slightly twisted sense of humor with some genuinely entertaining gameplay, both of which help to distinguish this title from the rest in this category.

Upon first playing Rochard, some immediate impressions come to mind. The art style of the game is very reminiscent of Team Fortress 2, using a similar bold and simple color pallet and cartoonish characters that seem to carry themselves with the same kind of heft as the characters from the famed team-based shooter. The mechanics call to mind Half-Life 2 with a device that works quite similarly to the gravity gun. Even the general format of the game is a hearkening back to other "2.5D" games released on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, most notably Shadow Complex.

Yet what makes Rochard stand out is exactly how it incorporates these elements with a fine level of polish, while simultaneously adding some new twists to well-tread formulas.
