Immersive, gorgeous, and so much fun!

I first played The Journey Down a few years back when only chapter 1 was available and loved everything about it. Now that all 3 chapters are out, I’m so excited to discover the rest of the story. The main character Bwana, with his mischievous personality and great sense of humor, is quite a refreshing change from your typical hardened detective. The supporting cast is fantastic as well. The funky Afro-noir game design is a treat for the eyes and the music is gorgeous - and I don’t even like jazz! I love how despite the environments and plot being generally dark and mysterious, all the characters are incredibly upbeat and fun to talk to. And something I have to mention about the game mechanics is that your items stay with you after one use, whether you may need them again or not - it never made sense to me in other p&c games when your character would leave behind a perfectly good tool after one use! I’m glad the developers here understood that. I can’t believe this amazing game has so few reviews. Yes chapter 1 is a little short but the later chapters are much longer and definitely worth your money. Check it out, you won’t regret it!!

Top Shelf Adventure gaming!

The Journey Down remains one of my finest adventure gaming experiences on iOS. The story is compelling, the characters are likable and have depth, the graphics are gorgeous, the interface and controls are intuitive and well polished, and the puzzles are challenging yet not frustrating and are all solvable without referencing a walk through with a little persistence.

Now that the entire story is complete and all three episodes are released I highly recommend playing this masterpiece of P&C adventure gaming! You won't be disappointed 🤓

Big thanks to SkyGoblin for weathering the many storms of an indie development path, and for their perseverance to conclude The Journey Down to reward all the players who have invested in and love this story! You have my sincerest thanks!

Just incredible

This is genuinely one of the best video games I’ve ever played. I recently redownloaded it and it’s even better than I remembered almost 10 years later. Chapter 1 is a little short, but it still is practically incomparable with modern games. It’s immersive, funny, innovative, and very smartly written. Quite literally, every single aspect of the game is important to the story and is involved in some way with the plot. I wish more people knew about this game, I couldn’t rate it any higher!
