Ratings and Reviews
Heart and Soul
Being a BIG fan of point-click games, this one stands out. The artwork and graphics have you hooked, not to mentioned an outstanding music score that has you chilling and curled up with some good game play. I have only played the first one (which was a bit short) but judging by the reviews, 2 and 3 are longer. Good games like this, you don’t want them to end. It was a nice pace after playing one of the most intense but brilliant games on my iPad ‘Life is Strange’.
Those of a certain age (like, ahem, me) will remember Day of the Tentacle. I great game with wackily crooked graphics. The graphics on The Journey Down remind me so much of that old fave. Of course there aren't any aliens here but some great ideas and for me the app was faultless. I especially like the way the music chimes in (in tune to the background music) when you tap on items on screen - a very charming feature. Adventure games these days (maybe its my age) tend to be quite easy, and I think this was reasonably easy too. But nevertheless I still thoroughly enjoyed it (and downloaded the 2nd episode!). One small nag - wish there was an option to turn off the music and voice (separately). The only available option is to turn on subtitles and then turn down the volume using the device controls. But that wasn't a major hassle.
Grows on You
I know this is old now but I have only just had the pleasure of downloading and playing it after reading such good reviews.
I really wasn’t too sure at first and it didn’t seem to make much sense, everything I tried didn’t work like getting the bird down off the forklift truck.
I must admit I needed to use a walkthrough several times because I believe it is quite hard but the longer I played the more I got into it before eventually just losing myself in the game.
My only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is because of there only actually being a few puzzles within the game, but apart from that considering the age of it you have to say it’s a classic.
Downloaded 2 & 3 before even completing the 1st one so I must like it 👍👏
