What's New in Version 1.6
- Fixed the ending of level 08 Two Towers
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 story book in app form
Less an enthralling game and more a quiet meditation on life with incredible art. As long as you know what you’re getting into it’s a superb experience.
Nice looking game when it’s working
Game looks great. Really looking forward to seeing where it goes. But for now I can’t because it crashes every time it goes to the second flashback.
