LEAVES - The Journey reviews and comments

A beautifully made puzzle game. Really recommended! I particularly like that you are simply thrown into the surrealist Scenery and, without any further Hints, start to discover the Game and its Mechanics completely for yourself. One encounters a Mixture of Puzzle games (some of which are quite tricky), a Search Game for the lost Leaves of the Tree and a Journey Of discovery for the cuddly Inhabitants of this great World. Without Dialogue, but with relaxing Music a Game to switch off completely and immerse yourself in another World. The Only Criticism: The Control does not always work smoothly. The Directional Arrows sometimes simply disappear and you only get on if you change briefly into the Inventory or Menu and back again.

A very good puzzle game. The Main Reason I write a Review is this: You're just thrown into the mysterious World, with no Guidance or Explanation, and it's great! Nowadays you rarely have the Feeling of having done something alone in a Video game, there is always someone somewhere who gives clues, says where to go long or that the Puzzle is far too simple. But not Leaves! As a Player, you have to come up with how a Puzzle needs to be addressed, either it's Trial and Error or you've realised before that in another Place was a similar Mechanism. Either way you have to get on it on your own and once you've solved the Mystery you feel all the better. Leaves, despite his Claim, is a great Title to switch off. You have beautiful surreal Worlds, interesting Creatures and hardly any Music, but only atmospheric Sounds. A perfect Title when you're tense or stressed:)

I played this Game with Enthusiasm and only ever stopped unvenuously as it was a really exciting Game for me. It fascinated me mega! While I knew puzzle and Exploration Adventures, I didn't know one in this artfully surreal Setting. You just realise that it has been done with a lot of Joy. The beautiful Background Landscape, the incredibly sweet Inhabitants, which could only be found with the Magnifying Glass, the atmospheric Music, the sometimes really tricky puzzles, the Story around the Tree with its Fruits and its lost Leaves ... I was really sad when it ended, but on the other hand happy to see happy Inhabitants and happy Fruits ... Because I was able to bring them back all 30 Sheets. A truly extraordinary Game that is actually unlike any of its Kind. It's a worth living Work of art!! There is only one negative Point to mention in this regard, but which does not really affect the Enjoment of The game. Navigation Occasionally detects errors, which does not always show the Navigation Arrow. However, this can be solved by briefly opening and closing the Inventory.
