    Cute game

    Not sure how to get past the part after where he sleeps in the hotel....

    So glad I bought this!

    A game with heart and beauty. It isn't a test of how well you can shoot a gun or properly twist your fingers, it's simply a game
    of puzzles and reflection. I've never enjoyed a game this much.

    A game for grieving

    My father recently passed away and I had no idea what the game was about before going into it. Coming out, I'm just full of

    Easily one of the most beautiful and moving games I've ever played.

    Beautiful tale

    First off, this is not some wicked challenging puzzle game. The graphics and feel of the game is unique and very lovely. If your
    looking for a challenging puzzler, this is not it. If however you are looking for a touching and tear filled story to hike through
    in an afternoon, you will truly enjoy th

    Worth the $

    don't understand some of the negative reviews. great mechanics and art with a good story. very relaxing. nice to have a relaxing
    game that isn't just rapid button mashing. it is like going on a relaxing hike with memories. thanks so much to the developers for
    putting this on ios.

    Unique and beautiful

    I wasn't to sure about the game because of the price, but it was well worth it! I have never played a game anything like this
    before. The artwork was beautiful and so was the story that went along with it. I enjoyed every moment of this game.

    Price point

    I agree with everyone that loved this game! But I also agree with those who believe that this Cadillac of a game comes, with a
    Bentley price tag.

    Artwork is awesome..........great story......

    I wish there were more games like this one. To me, The story and artwork in the game were primary: the gaming aspect was
    secondary- it was something I had to do to in order to advance the chronicle. It is astonishing to see such creativity.

    Beautiful graphics, basic skill, rather short play

    The animation / graphics are excellent, pleasing to the eyes for certain.
    Skill level is low, maybe medium for younger kids (my 4-yr-old is playing now, she understands the movements & goals ... needs a
    bit of help, suggestions for the more complicated puzzle paths).
    I took time to touch everything

    Superb Storytelling

    I honestly don't understand the reviews. If you are looking for a hard core puzzler, this isn't it. If you are looking for a
    heartbreaking story, gorgeous animation, and a novel movement mechanic, though, it cannot get better than this. I loved it and

    The artistry and thought provoking journey is set up to be more savored than rushed. Something we are all probably lacking these
    days. It has interesting and unique navigation along the way. It could easily have expansion staying in theme like the Room games
    have done. This is a brief game so a tad

    It's a moving story

    I am not done with it yet. However, I'm glued to it. I don't want to finish it in a day so I'm waiting a bit. I just finished the
    part where the Old Man descended into the lake after walking on a water fall.

    There is so much symbolism in this story.

    It's not action pact. It's not filled with scary

    Great game but,

    this is an amazing game with an amazing story. it's fun, challenging and, overall pretty great. the only reason i'm giving this
    game a 4 star is that, for five dollars, this has very little gameplay. i was able to complete it in an afternoon, but that's the
    only bad thing about it.

    Beautiful Story game

    As some have mentioned this game is short and no super hard, but the story is moving, and the art and animation is stunning! Loved
    the game play. It's unique and relaxing, allowing you to sit back and enjoy your time playing.

    Liked it a lot

    the game is quite unique, and has a highly emotional element.

    i did find it frustrating that the settings were so hard to locate, but overall it was an excellent, immersive experience — and
    great art!

    I personally LOVED almost all of it...but...

    First, it is beautiful. Some of the scenes are like lovely watercolors. It is not easy, and not hard, it just requires you to
    think differently. If you get stuck you really, really just need to think outside of the box. I still gave it 5 stars even

    You know what is nice?

    To not be interrupted with ads and asked to buy more. People will balk at the price, but these same idiots will get a " free" game
    and act surprised when they are asked to pay , or are inundated with ads

    Clever concept and nice graphics

    The concept is clever and the graphics are beautiful. However, I found the description of the game to be a bit misleading because
    it sounded like it was a puzzle adventure. Note that all the puzzles are essentially of the same type, adjusting the landscape so
    that the old man can navigate the hills

    Beautiful. Short.

    It's like an interactive animated film. A short film, unfortunately.

    The "puzzles", like the story, are simple in nature though do present enough effort to not cheapen the experience.

    Speaking of, look at the price as if you are getting a beautiful animated short and an engaging puzzle in one. I'd

    Super pretty but otherwise nothing special.

    The art for this game is so, so beautiful and I am happy to pay the $5 for that alone, but I wish I had been warned that the
    gameplay is just "fine", nothing to write home about, and the story is lackluster and predictable, not the "heartwarming
    tear-jerker" it's touted to be. Still, beautiful game

    Beautiful Game

    The graphics and music are absolutely beautiful. The storyline is thoughtfully done and kept me interested. The game play is a
    little clumsy at times, but mostly because I played it on my phone rather than a tablet. The game isn't exciting...but it isn't
    meant to be. It is a thoughtful game that can

    It's more than just a game. Yes it is simple, not complicated... but that allows you to relax and enjoy the journey. The story of

    Charming and Whimsical Game

    I've never written a review for anything before, but this game was such an unexpected delight, I felt compelled to review. The
    puzzles are relatively simple, but the design is lovely, and the play-through is charming. It was an unexpectedly thought
    provoking and whimsical game.

    for bite sized games. Very well designed and worth the money.

    Great but needs more content

    This was a pleasure to play. The 'puzzles' were easy, but I was completely absorbed in watching the old man's story unfold in
    front of my eyes. It was a unique experience, but I'm not entirely sure the 25 minutes of gameplay was worth the 5 dollars. I

    A Short Gentle Game

    Beautiful art and music. Easy puzzles, but I didn't mind. Took me maybe 90-120 minutes to play through.

    The game crashed twice on my iPad Pro 12.9", during the 5th scene and near the end of the 12th scene.

    Gorgeous and sentimental

    First rate artwork and music. The puzzle mechanism isn't terribly challenging, but it is novel and eventually becomes a nice
    psychological metaphor. Loved the (probably unintentional) edgy postscript wherein the old man seems to have fathered a child with
    his own daughter and the three have sailed o

    i really wanted to adore this game, mainly due to the endearing old man, cute music, and lovely graphics. but, i don't. it's an
    incredibly short game, and game isn't exactly what i would call it. it's a bit more of a click-through story, which is great if

    A must play... if the price drops.

    game art is beautiful, story is touching, and gameplay is fun and intriguing. but, with a play time of barely an hour or 2,
    certainly not worth the higher price tag. in the end, it feels almost more like a demo then a full game.

    Not an adult puzzle game

    This is certainly a beautiful game, but I think it would only be considered a puzzle game by a child.
    Not much to the actually game play, so for me it was a poor purchase - especially for the price.

    I hope the artist got paid well because that's the only nice part. I was hoping for puzzles and not only walking. I would NOT
    consider this a puzzle game but a story with no words. It's also frustrating to encourage interactivity by touching things but

    Too expensive for what it is

    Nice graphics and unusual interface that interestingly uses 2D to its advantage. But fairly short and puzzle solving gets
    repetitive. I also didn't love the underlying story, it's not as sweet and heartwarming as reviews made it seem - it's just sad
    and irresponsible.
