12 August 2014
  • Summary: The Journey Down: Chapter One is a point-and-click adventure that tries to recapture some of the magic of similar, older games, and it succeeds, for the most part.

  • Conclusion: If you’ve played the original freeware version, you can expect more of the same but far more polished, and the improvements are well worth the price of admission. Don’t expect a great deal more, however, as the actual new content is a little short in supply.
