What's New in Version 2.02
Proper screenshots and app description. Minor content updates.
Journey Down has a terrific story line and a point-and-click adventure that keeps you engaged. After the amazing first chapter, I plunked down full price for #2 to support the developers. Well worth it, though I think this is a smidgeon not quite as good.
Be aware that the faces of the characters are very stylized, based on African(?) masks. I thought in the first chapter it was fine (Bwana, Lina, etc look lovely.) In the 2nd chapter it often looks creepy. Barlow looks monstrous. My young kids played the first but the second seems more mature (the initial encounter with the sultry woman, the women who I think are prostitutes, the innuendoes between Barlow and Lina).
Improvements that would be appreciated:
- graphics could be a little brighter, especially in the harbor scene before Morton's lighthouse. It is black on my screen. I can't even see Bwana.
- shorten dialogue after first repetition or let a single tap end the conversation This game is sometimes very wordy.
- a notebook to remind us of our goals. After a day, I can't immediately recall what I am doing or where I found the whatever
- a help system (obscure is ok but I am so stuck right now)
This is one of the best games I've ever played, on any platform/device/computer. The music and ambiance are amazing. This is one of those games that's like a great, rich cup of espresso in a quiet coffeehouse or like immersing oneself in a hot tub on a cold night -- sweet and sensuous. The storyline is engrossing, the puzzles make sense, ( though I admit I consulted a walkthrough site when I got stuck a few times. Great voice acting, diverse and engaging characters, excellent navigation. I can't say enough good things about this game. I'm just sad it's over! I am usually a cheapskate on games but when Ch 3 comes out, I will pay what it costs (but please have mercy and don't make it ten bucks or something).
A rare gem
Right up there with the Room, or City of Secrets. This is just a charming game, rich in scenery and personality and with just the right level of challenge to stay entertaining even when you don't know the next steps.
If you haven't tried the first, definitely go back and get it right away. I've played a LOT of point and click on the iPad and this is one of the best. The faces are styled after African masks, the city is somewhere between New Orleans and Gotham city. I can't wait to see what this studio comes up with next!
