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 colorful 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.

A simple critique

Yuino Creed

I myself have enjoyed the game throughout the range of 4 days before noticing a few things that irritate and cause most players such as myself to stop playing. The items and clothing you craft and/or buy/sell wear out easily, and many players would refuse to buy favors when in need of food, this game has places to go but it needs that push and ideas to spreads its roots from the planted seed and into the game. I for one suggest maybe having fruits on trees, and maybe using in game money to buy favors. An experience and eventful filled game is what we want, you have those elements but you need to be able to style it the way that a player that can’t afford Apple ID purchases will be able to play it, and balance it out between what we now consider an unfair bargain, even if a person were able to, it seems worthless to spend money just to receive help from starvation and getting looted on the way. I have been looted countless times even just mere inches from a camp when I would collapse I lose what I hold that I require the most, making my trips a waste of time. Also the prices to cross a river are a bit high especially on the last one before reaching the falls. I thank you for taking the time to read my little critique.

A Disappointing Mixed Bag....

I really wanted to give this five stars but the glitches are so bad. The game strategy is fun and could keep me playing for hours but every 15 minutes I get automatically backed out of the game. Also, the developers changed the stamina so your character immediately runs out of life. Like, two steps away from camp and your already in need of food. Finally, making your customers pay for game favors with real money cheapens the game. It's like I am playing one of those lame Facebook games or at a video gaming cafe. The dev team should allow people to tap into their screen money. I have nearly 86,000 chits accrued but can't purchase food in town or buy "favors" or gold with the game money.

UPDATE: After a few months of playing and really attempting to develop my town (nearly single-handedly, I might add), I finally accepted that this game is so poorly programmed, it isn't worth my time. I now get bumped out at each trail, about every 8 minutes, sometimes without completing the trail so I do the same trail over and over without going anywhere. Items have regularly disappear from my backpack and you still have to purchase gold with real dollars, not game money. In the end, it's an original and fun concept, just poorly designed in some ways and definitely poorly programmed that it's full of glitches. It has become exhausting and boring to play.
