|Grouch is a fun-filled 3D action adventure game where you are Rocko, a
big man of few words and even fewer thoughts, with a heart of gold. Rocko's
girlfriend has been kidnapped from right under his nose and he is on a mission
to get her back safely and rid the world of all the ugly creatures. But even
though Rocko may have a big heart, his brain is the size of a pea so you'll have
to do all the thinking for him. Walk, run, tiptoe, or roll your way through
swamps, mountains, cemeteries, castles, and caves. There's 8 huge levels to
explore, each with numerous sub-levels. Jump onto moving platforms, grab onto
ledges, operate levers, shimmy up and down ropes, and bowl over obstacles to
help Rocko in his quest. Bows and arrows, swords, spiked maces, and enemy
weapons can be used to defeat all who stand in your way. Torches can be used to
light your path, they can also be thrown ahead of you to illuminate the way.
It's very bloody but with some sense of black humour. The game was re-released
in 2003 as Rocko's Quest.
