This game is weird. First, we need to talk about how it is played. You take the mouse and click somewhere. Your character will then walk there, if possible. If he cant, he'll question your decision with a "?" above his head. You can then take the terrain and literally drag it up or down with the mouse. So, why was that important you ask? Well, it is important because it allows the game to make you "Move landscapes". And let me tell you that this is an Experience. I rarely have this moment where I go "Wow, why didnt I think of this" but this time I certainly have. Moving terrain feels not only great, it also ties into the aesthetic of the game, which is that of a layered drawing. But such a simple mobile game obviously would not get the "Exceptional" tag if it was only for that. No, Old mans Journey has another trick up its sleeve. When I play it (20 years old), I just see a fun game that offers an easy experience that allows you to connect to 'old' people. However, give this to your grandpa, like I did, and the experience is COMPLETELY different. He knew the cars, he knew the type of people, he knew the terrain. For a second he was able to get "back" to that time, and he was happy to tell me all about that while enjoying the game. And -that- is why this game is exceptional. It not only offers a good game, it offers a great game for people that generally dont get one. If you know someone that is from the age period 60+, I would HIGHLY recommend trying this game with them. Especially when they have never played a game before. There are some parts that are a little harder to understand, but it will make for an awesome experience.

«Liked before it became a hit»
Милая приятная игра с добрым и понятным посылом. Красивая картинка, условный геймплей, умиротворяющая музыка. Хороший вариант провести 1,5 часа
«Sit Back and Relax»
Приятный приключенческий пазл: разнообразный, милый, атмосферный, с правильным месседжем, очень красивый и умно построенный. Проходится за два часа.
