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 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.

A great game - unbalanced, in favor of favours


A lovely time, I'm just frustrated by some things. My clothes frequently wear out, and I see that about other people, too, walking around naked. Every trip im saving up for pants, a shirt, a slinghsot, etc, and by the time I've got that something else has worn out. The
This makes the whole stat-boosts-come-from-clothes thing really frustrating. Yes, I gradually unlock better clothes, but I'm always making an effort to just keep my stats the same, and I'm not leveling up at all. Not to mention I can only do so much in one trip, because my bag is tiny - and whenever I unlock a new bag, it wears out before I know it....leaving me with no storage again! Just giving clothes a longer wear time, or JUST making storage expansions permanent. That one thing would help a lot. It's a really intriguing system, but the balance is off, and it's not fulfilling. Clearly, they want you to pay for favors, and the playstyle is clearly worse off for a free player.

All that said, this is a fun game. It hasn't been very buggy for me so far, and all this ^ would be a lot of fun to handle. It's exploration meets resource management meets a beautifully animated low-poly rpg, and it could really go places. I'm just constantly frustrated with the play style.
