‘Old Man’s Journey’ Review: An Unbiased Puzzle Man’s Opinion
Old Man’s Journey, from Broken Rules studio, has been in the words for quite some time, and the previews of the game always had one really great hook- its graphics!
When you look at the early screenshots for the game, you see a piece of art you get to play with, and the look of the game has only progressed to yet even higher heights.
A gorgeous environment and assets you can clearly see were not rehashed from another app or game give this puzzle mobile game a unique feel, almost making you feel as if the puzzle, the story and the art itself comes to live, being more than the screen of your monitor, tablet or smartphone (either iOS or Android ofc).
The story is quite straightforward when it begins, as an old man gets a letter which sets him up on an adventure.
Backpack and walking stick in hand, he goes off to somewhere we don’t know about, but the man is determined to get there, and you can see he knows fully well where he’s heading.
You get to know more about this quest as you play, being fed details on the story along the way.
The goal is to keep the old man moving throughout his journey, ensuring the path is clear. A “no reset” system and the fact that you can’t move the tile the Old Man stands on make this game frustrating at times, but as you proceed you get a great sense of fulfillment and the “it was worth it” fix.
Mechanics start off simple, but more and more complex features get thrown into the pot, making things not too complicated, but requiring your brains to work, hence being a puzzle game.
Sheep are an interesting kind of mini-game puzzle, and a very welcome feature that really adds a unique spin on the levels. A great thing we have to mention is the fact that you don’t really get one or two levels that are so hard you think of abandoning the game – this isn’t one of those games with roadblocks or insane difficulty leaps.
The game gets progressively harder, but at a steady pace, so there isn’t a daunting level like in some puzzle games where everyone gets stuck on “lvl X”.
Animations are sleek, sounds are relaxing, and you’re fed memories as the Old Man stops and rests throughout his journey.
We should end this Old Man’s Journey review by letting you know that the story has no dialogues, and you get to know the lore and history of the world through the memories. The old man made some difficult choices throughout his life, and if you have a heart you’re going to be moved by them.
Old Man’s Journey has a good replay value as in each playthrough you’re almost certainly going to find some elements you left out, but at the end of the day you’re still going to replay it just twice or thrice as it’s, after all, a puzzle game.
