The journey is the destination…yeah, yeah, we’ve all heard it before. But with The Trail, it’s totally true. As we trekked through a stunning and colourful wilderness, we were in no rush to reach the next campsite. Collecting resources and hiking sure are fun, but the true stars of this game are the amazing vistas and stirring soundtrack.

The Best updated....


For me the best game ever. I've reached the end of the trail, as it stands, and am now saving enough chits to cross the water there. A beautiful journey through amazingly varied landscape. The sound track too, which you do need to have turned on, so as to be aware when running out of stamina etc.
Challenging at first, but later everything crafted is worth so much more. Once you have bought a house, I do advise buying some storage boxes, and keep one just for spare food items. This greatly helps progression.
As others have mentioned, crafting takes some time and to be able to craft more than one item at a time would greatly enhance the game play.
Love it!!!
Have to add to my review. I still love the game, but it has now become unplayable on my iPad. Have contacted developers 3 times with no response and Apple have not helped either. Doing some research it seems this is due to the latest iOS update. Shall have to forget about this game and feel thankful that I spent no real cash in playing it!

Developer Response

Hello! We have since had some back and forth communication and have fixed the problem that was causing the game to be unplayable on some iOS11 devices. I hope all is now well and thank you for playing! -Daisy

Absolutely Amazing


Now, if you're thinking, “This game can't be that good - it's free!” You're wrong! This game has an awesome art style and a charming soundtrack. The whole idea is brilliant and i'd recommend this to anyone. I'm not suprised that this game is an editors choice since it's lag free and just addicting!

The gameplay is quite simple, you have a goal to settle down in Edin Falls and make a family. At the beginning, you have NOTHING. Like, at all. This doesn’t last long because you are introduced with a great tutorial which explains the games mechanics. I find myself to get immersed in the gameplay and i sometimes feel the way my character would. Even the character selection screen is very unique, although it is quite annoying to find a nice character that i like.

To finish off, i want to say thanks, to the developers of the game. This is AWESOME! I can't get enough and this is the only game i've bothered to write a review. There are a couple bad reviews but don't be disheartened. Just give the game a go and you probably will see what i mean!

A quick edit: I've settled in Eden Falls once more, and have found that some of my items disappear every time i reload the app - Including some of my clothing! Everything in my tool hooks and pockets are wiped out too. If you could fix this I'd appreciate it a bundle.
-Cheers Developers!
