A great game
This reminded me of a game that I was totally addicted to years ago; Lemmings. What I like is the puzzle solving element, not shooting things, not speed based, but using your brain. I would like to recommend a primer including a couple of practice levels. I didn't know until I read reviews that you can't move anything that the old man is standing on and that it often takes some moving of obstacles so he can proceed or using items to destroy walls. Once I caught on I enjoyed the game a lot more but before I understood the basics, I was really frustrated. It would be good if it were a little longer. I went to the end in two days in my spare time. Looking forward to more from this developer.
Thoroughly Enjoyed It
I like adventure games. They are strong on story and when well done very intuitive. This felt like a mini adventure and it was well done. I didn't feel the lack of a tutorial at all. In fact I was glad there wasn't one. I dislike hand holding in my games.
For a game with no conversation it was filled with communication. The old man's body language at the very beginning of the game was all that was needed to start off. I won't say more. Everyone playing should experience the delight of discovery the way I did.
I am happy to support developers who so obviously lovingly craft products like these. I will look out for more from them. Thanks for the lovely little game.
Lovely and bittersweet
Unintentionally (and coincidentally) started playing it on Father's Day. I was able to complete the game in a day, playing on-and-off throughout, so it's pretty short. I didn't feel cheated out of my money, though. Personally, I think the experience paid for itself.
The animation and length made the game seem like an interactive short film, and the music is gorgeous and fits the artwork well. The level of difficulty isn't too high, but challenging enough to make you think.
Not recommended for people who are looking for intense brain teasers, but highly recommended for people who like a good adventure, beautiful art, and a good dose of wanderlust.
