The Journey Down: Chapter One

Gamezebo
2 January 2013
  • Summary: A great point and click adventure with a fresh aesthetic
  • Pros: A great, fun start to a new graphic adventure series. Funny, charming characters. Good puzzles. Unique art design. Top notch visuals.
  • Cons: Some of the voice work pales in comparison to the lead actors. It’s a little on the short side.

The Journey Down: Chapter One

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: What The Journey Down: Chapter One does definitively as a whole, is prime its audience to anticipate its next part, and it wouldn’t get anywhere close to that level of palate whetting if it wasn’t a well crafted slice of the classic point and click gateaux. Instilled with an obvious reverence and applied knowledge of the genre, The Journey Down is an adventure game made by people who love adventure games.

The Journey Down: Chapter One

Adventure Classic Gaming
26 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Contemporary adventure games have come to adopt a few established styling. Some make an impression by focusing on delivering great graphics, while others rely on nostalgia inspired by old school games from the golden age of the adventure genre. The Journey Down, from indie developer SkyGoblin, falls squarely on the latter. The Journey Down: Chapter One is the first chapter in a planned quadrilogy of games.

  • 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. And if you've yet to play its lo-res predecessor, Chapter One is a great first episode in its own right.

GAME REVIEW – The Journey Down: Chapter One – HD (PC)

Alternative Magazine Online
17 May 2012
  • Conclusion: The Journey Down: Chapter One – HD delivers by the bucket-load. It’s still the same game beneath the new lick of paint of course and this may put some players off – the jump in price from free to £9.99 is difficult not to notice. However, despite still being relatively short and still having a cliff-hanger ending that will make you want to cry, the new presentation makes it well worth taking another journey down.

TEST. The Journey Down, Chapter 1 (PC)

Game Blog
10 July 2012
  • Summary: Se lancer dans le jeu d'aventure à contenu épisodique, plus personne ne tente trop l'expérience, à part les rodés de chez TellTale, mais c'est pourtant la voie empruntée par Skygoblin pour leur très étrange The Journey Down . Le design des persos, à base de masques africains, fait tout de suite penser à Grim Fandango version rasta et tout le reste de la réalisation est vraiment de bonne facture si ce n'est une ou deux voix ratées.
  • Pros: Une histoire intriguante, Chouette design si on accroche, Belles cinématiques
  • Cons: On fait parfois des trucs sans trop savoir pourquoi..., Déplacements coooools, man

  • Summary: The Journey Down: Chapter 1 er en lovende begynnelse på et nytt episodebasert epos. Spillet byr på massevis av morsomme situasjoner og underholdende nøtter, og selv om verken de mentale utfordringene, humoren eller handlingen er av Monkey Island-kaliber byr det absolutt på en fin kveld med eventyrmoro. Dessuten er det ganske åpenbart at handlingen fortsatt er i startgropa, og etter en spennende slutt gleder jeg meg nå til å se hvor det hele bærer i neste episode.

Journey Down: Chapter 1, The

AG
28 June 2012
  • Summary: У необычного визуального стиля не нашлось под ногами идейного фундамента, а занятная, чуть шаблонная история подпорчена общей расхлябанностью. The Journey Down: Chapter 1 не лишена обаяния, но табун унылых середняков она опережает всего на полкорпуса. Неудивительно, что аккурат накануне сдачи рецензии Skygoblin, по собственному признанию, «пришла в чувство» и срезала цену на игру вдвое.

The Journey Down: Chapter One

1 June 2012
  • Summary: Originale come Calavera e divertente come Threepwood, Bwana ci racconta in questo primo episodio come sono cominciati i suoi guai. Speriamo solo possa finire il racconto...
  • Pros: Doppiaggio fenomenale, Protagonista memorabile (ma promuoviamo tutto il cast), Ambientazione originale, Trama e puzzle vanno a braccetto
  • Cons: Due ore di gioco sono poche, Non sappiamo quando uscirà il secondo capitolo, Sequenze cinematografiche appena passabili, Sfondi poco dettagliati
