Extremely boring gameplay
I’ve had this game on my wishlist forever. Let’s just say I’m glad I bought it on sale fir $.99 and not at the full $4.99 price. I found myself SO unbelievably bored throughout the entire game. I wouldn’t call it puzzles or even so much a game. It’s just a story with an old man that walks around remembering his life and getting divorced. It’s odd and not fun at all. The graphics are incredibly stunning which is the only reason I even gave it 2 stars but you just drag the ground to make him hop from one area to another. Sometimes you have to move some sheep out of the way or crash something through a rock fence to let him walk through but I wouldn’t call it fun or challenging, it’s kind of annoying. I mean really, who thought this was an exciting game?? I’m more annoyed that I even spent $.99 on it. Not worth it. Beautiful graphics but horrible “game”.
Wonderful, artistic and heart warming.
I was a game player but for long time I have stopped playing video games because they all have more or less the same style. I downloaded Old Man’s Journey out of curiosity, because as an artist I was interested in the graphic and design. Yes, it’s not the most complicated game ever and if you are looking for something very challenging perhaps this will not be so exciting... but it is a wonder low stress game, that allows you to immerse yourself in a wonderful natural world, full of wonderful sounds and colors. It will warm your heart because the purpose of this game is not survival, but something very unusual and new. It’s worth trying.
Playing on my iPad with the brightness maxed just put a grin on my ugly mug the whole time I played. I truly enjoyed this, it is part game, part story, and part gorgeous colorful art all of which kept me engaged. I hope to see more chapters added, thank you for such a different relaxing experience. Fantastic job on the visuals, it just sucked me in like a canvas come to life. So original and a true work of art with warmth.
