Editors’ Choice

An Apple Design Award winner, this moving puzzler proves sometimes the best stories don’t need words. Developer Broken Rules has created a hand-drawn world that bubbles with whimsy and heart. Altering the landscape to reveal hidden paths makes for fascinating, peaceful gameplay. We love exploring the storybook settings and uncovering each touching memory. It’s unforgettable, and we’d move mountains just to relive the experience.

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”.

Absolutely Stunning

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.
