About

Fandango roots

The game resembles the cult masterpiece of Tim Shafer Grim Fandango: faces of the characters are covered with masks of African tribes. The Journey Down is an episodic adventure for Linux, OS X, Windows, and iOS. Originally the game existed as a mobile application with poor quality graphics and audio, but the developers re-released the project with the prefix Chapter One and new high-resolution textures, full voice acting and additional content. This is the first part of the trilogy.

The story

The game's game takes place in the coastal city of Saint Armando. The player follows the adventures of Bwana and Kito, who own a gas station and barely make ends meet. However, future events drag them into a whirlpool of adventures, which makes forget about worldly problems. In the first part of the trilogy, the heroes go in search of a lost log. It can point the way to the mysterious land of the Underland. Together Bwana and Kito help the girl Lina to find the hidden land.

Unusual mix

The Journey Down is a classic point-and-click quest with an unusual visual setting. Developers have fashioned their characters in a mix of Afro and Caribbean styles. Special pride is the original jazz soundtrack, which was recorded just in time for the restart of the game in HD.

The Journey Down: Chapter One reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Swedish
Journey down all three chapters for the best rating of me. It is bst in the genre point-click-venture. It is exciting, cozy, fun, casual, cool, tricky everything. Much thanks to the cool, casual and comical characters of Bwana and Kito. Want to play more games with those characters. You want to see them again when you have finished playing. If you think the game is expensive then you can see what the game costs, for example Nintendo switch 400 SEK! If you have a console and an iPad, I recommend that you use it for the iPad when the type of game fits well on the tablet.

to an epic click & amp; Point Adventure. The riddles may be a bit too easy for old hands, but that's the cool story in the flow. Better than anything I've ever heard in these games is the soundtrack. In some scenes, I did not play at first to enjoy the music and the mood in full swing. I have not stopped the season, but I think they are perfectly fine for the price. Software developers, graphic artists and musicians, etc. do not work too lukewarm. I like to give full five stars! PS: And, the soundtrack is available at Bandcamp!

Well I played this game a good hour or two. And for now I find it really good! We are totally immerged in the game, the music is absolutely great I think, it's a real pleasure for the ear, and the story seems very promising. The graphics are really going, the voices in English are also very well done, it's like a real discussion and the game is not too complicated but not too easy either. For jewelry as a 0.89 cents I strongly recommend it if you like music, good point and click of the monkey Island style (so with humor) and of course if you are comfortable with English! I really hope that the next episodes will also be 0.89 cents or the minimum price above.

A very good introduction that this first episode. This adventure game point & amp; click is really nice and we enjoy finishing it for a few hours, this partly thanks to the humor of the characters and their replicas. The English subtitles dialogues are very well doubled and the required level is not too difficult. All you need is a correct average level to understand. The decor is in a spirit a little cartoon, very fine and very pretty, a treat to stride in notch. The game is point style & amp; click type monkey island with combinations of objects. They are always rather easy and logical. No combination of improbable or haphazard objects. In addition to the background music is very present and brings an undeniable charm this first episode. I look forward to the continuation.
