"... I was finding myself really amused and having a good amount of fun with this."
"solid gameplay, hilarious writing, and gorgeous visuals".
Adventure Gamers (3.5/5)
"...humor is strong, with a dash of pathos for depth: unfulfilled clown dreams, voodoo priests clamoring for your soul, cannibals that want to eat or marry you, what more can you ask for?"
"Jolly Rover, is a charming, at times challenging and even (for a casual game) fairly long adventurous cartoon romp o'er the 19th century's bounding main in the great tradition of The Secret of Monkey Island."
