It’s fair to say that Old Man’s Journey is one of our favorite games here at iFanzine. It’s a beautiful, narrative driven puzzle adventure that’s unlike anything else available on the App Store. And right now you can pick it up for dirt cheap.
The game sees you taking the titular journey with the titular old man. You’re manipulating the scenery around you to get from A to B, solving simple puzzles and having a generally brilliant old time.
There’s an amazing story pushing everything along, told without words, and the game generates a brilliant atmosphere along the way. This is a game that makes you think about life, love, loss and the choices we do and don’t take.
And on top of all of that, the game looks beautiful. It’s a beguiling, enchanting experience, all hand-drawn art and breath-taking animation. Sometimes you just want to stare at the screen with your mouth open, that’s how good-looking Old Man’s Journey is.
