  • Absolutely Stunning Dec 12, 2017

    By Hi_It's_Joe
    Great story, great puzzles, and great aesthetic. The game’s pleasing graphics only add to this great game. A story about loss and regret that not only is realistic, but sad in a way that is oddly pleasing and sympathetic. An old man who got divorced and has to live on his own, adventuring the world. The puzzles seem to focus mainly on showcasing game aspects such as hot-air balloon riding and falling through waterfalls. I wish there was a second game that not only tells a completely new story, but doesn’t just showcase game mechanics. The game also felt kind of short. If there were to be a second game, making it longer and still keeping all of the previously listed things all of the way through would turn this review into a five star.

    A fair warning for anyone who's expecting this for a heavy puzzle game: it's not. But that being said the game itself is pretty great. The story is touching and the visual is gorgeous. The control is a bit wonky, especially when adjusting lanes.

    A truly beautiful game. It can feel weird at first to not have any instructions. But you actually discover the game and the world along the story, I finished it in a straight line, gorgeous music btw really helps to put you in the spirit of the story. Great work!

    Will be recommending to others. ⛵️Masterpiece story telling without a word said. Breathtaking detail and music moving you through the tale of an old soul driven on the path by a mysterious letter. It's the little things in life... and they move the hero through his journey and his memories. A story told through light terrain based puzzles. May have to downshift if you're looking for deep focus or concentration. Small on a iPhone 5 screen. Each chapter sets a tone and fleshes out the character and story as you go, building up to an emotional finale. Exquisite care was taken in making this. Spend the $5. Didn't know phone games could do this. Thank you for making this!

  • Totally annoying Mar 14, 2020

    By Robrook
    This game is a complete disappointment and very frustrating! There are no instructions and basically, as far as I can determine, all you do is direct the travels of an old character across the screen by raising and lowering landscape components with your finger. Problem is, the programming is poor and the character does not typically go where you touch on the screen, often times in a completely different area of the screen and the manipulation of the landscape (you have to get areas to intersect so he can walk across them) is very erratic. Some of the art work is pleasant, but all you do is view it. You do not interact with it in any meaningful way. To top it off, you don't even know why he is walking wherever he is walking!!! This is not a game. It is a frustration and I am not sure if there is anyone I would recommend it to. To be honest, I got so bored with it I eventually deleted it and never finished it.

  • Can Hardly Be Called a Game Nov 27, 2018

    I appreciate all the efforts the developers made for the amazing music and graphics, that’s why I gave two stars. However, as a puzzle game, moving the ground to let the old man can walk through his journey can hardly be called a game. And it’s nice to see the old man from time to time falling into a piece of memory, which is a beautiful picture, but I just don’t get the motivation to do it anymore, just like I don’t know why the old man wants to start his journey at all. Sorry, but I don’t think I’m gonna ever find it out, this comment means my ending this “game”. P.S. I think there is a bug in your app, sometimes when it goes into a piece of video (like the memory scenes), the phone dims down, which I don’t suppose to happen in a game.

    I’m afraid to go back and see if I actually paid $4.99 for this “game”. I was fooled by the 5 star reviews it received and purchased it without reading too much into it. Big mistake. This is a poor excuse for a puzzle game. If anything, it is a linear walking simulator. You click where you want the old man to walk super slowly and have to move the landscape around to progress further. I guess that’s the “puzzle” part but I would hardly call that a puzzle because it isn’t challenging at all. I had a harder time trying to figure out where the pause button was in the game. The story tries to be over emotional but with no dialogue and tedious gameplay it failed to make me care. One thing is the visuals are pretty and colorful but if it didn’t have that then, well, it would be worth 0 stars.

  • I’m stuck, and I’m annoyed Mar 12, 2019

    By MindieKaye
    This game is artistically beautiful, but man is it glitchy. I’m playing on my iPad Pro, and on almost every screen I have to battle with the moving the landscape. A lot of the time the landscape will just bounce (but not move)- that will happen over and over no matter how I try to make the hills move up or down. Then all of a sudden I’ll be able to slide the landscape to where I want it. I’m currently stuck on a waterfall puzzle (just after the hot air balloon), and I’ve tried to move every inch of the landscape, but nothing moves to a position that will allow him to move from the ledge he’s on. I’m talking EVERY. SINGLE. INCH. There is no way for me to proceed. It’s not fun, it’s frustrating.

    I have no clue what to do. This game is also so boring. All it has on it is some old man walking around the place. Who would want that? It also cost so much. I wasted my money on this app. I expected more from this app. I thought it would be more than some old old man. However I hope this app gets a little more interesting. How is this supposed to be fun? Can you update this app? I want it to be a little more fun. Maybe I would like it then. I don’t know how watching or moving stuff for the old man is supposed to entertain. This was supposed to be fun. It was such a waste. I do not recommend this app to anyone. This app should be free. Thank you. Now I kinda know what to do a little more. I will try the game again.

    Awesome game. Gorgeous graphics, beautiful story. Perfect game for the ladies. Only complaint is that the game doesnt save last point were one plays but forces one to play from begining of the chapter that you played last.

    A gorgeous, gorgeous game. Beautiful. From the start, to the special thanks at the end of the credits. You all did a wonderful job, and should be very proud of yourselves. Thank you for sharing this game with us. I wish you all the greatest of success. Will there be another one like this one? I hope so

  • A nice adventure. Sep 28, 2018

    By Theregencytailor
    This game is a nice adventure. The scenes are wonderful. It plays out the life of an old man, who was a French sailor. The puzzles are intriguing. Overall it's a good experience but it could be longer. The game doesn't last very long. There are not many levels. The environment is wonderful, like you are in a scenic painting but the view is not worth the $4.99. I hope there is a sequel with more new levels or else buyers remorse will eventually set in. Oh, by the way, here's a spoiler. You'll love the end of the old man's journey. Here's a clue as to what the subject matter is: 💀 Overall it's a fun but short ride.

    Story wise it was predictable (that something happened in the past - it was a family thing - it's one of the family) it's still great tho. But animated wise i love it very very much, I like the style, I love everything about the animation, the color, I can literally screenshot every frame of the game if i want to. it was a really worth it experience. It was more or less an amusing terrain, not spectacular but not ordinary too that's all. all and all it was a great game! love it.

    Cute game but difficult to play at first without any instructions. I had to follow walkthroughs for half of it, so I could get past levels. It's also incredibly over-priced for how short it is. I paid, expecting it to be a long story/journey but it could be completed within a couple of hours.

    If you're looking for a meaty, puzzle challenge, then you've come to the wrong place. What we have here is more a poetic, interactive story with lovely picture book graphics & gentle accordion music. You move hills up or down to create an "exit'. In both story feel & the way hills connect it draws comparison with Monument Valley, as the shapes combine, defying real world logic. Sadly, it was too easy & over with in just 2 sessions, but I got it on sale, - not complaining. If only there was more

  • Great game until ... Oct 21, 2018

    By Yuki Bee
    This is a lovely game — beautiful graphics and soundtrack — with an emotional story that’s told so well without any dialogue. The puzzles make you think outside the box and challenge you to reimagine the journey. My only issue is that the game gets stuck for me and I don’t know if this is a bug or an issue with what I’m doing. I get to a scene where the Old Man climbs into a truck, and after a series of puzzles to get the truck rolling, the screen turns into a cut scene of him traveling on the truck and just stays there. No more advancement, no more puzzles or interaction, just the old man in a yellow truck traveling down the road. This is disappointing because I’d love to see how this story ends!

    Kinda weird, basically just pulling different bits of level around so he can get through. Walks very slowly, being old.

  • Looks good but not really worth it. Jul 2, 2020

    By Sina.TM
    The Ups: Graphics & Story The Downs: Gameplay & Controls The Verdict: Good for children and adults that like very little challenge. Pleasing graphics and a touching story but that’s about it. Very simple gameplay with very little challenge (first half of the game almost none at all) and the controls although very simple can become very annoying at times especially in certain areas. I saw the game all over Appstore but then waited and bought it when it was $1 if I’m not mistaken and I’m happy I did. Definitely not worth its full price for me.

    Okay game. Gorgeous graphics and nice music. Had a very serene European style to it. You move the old man around and bend the planes for him. It gets boring after a while though. The sheep annoyed me to the point where i just uninstallwd it before finishing.
