A perfect game marred by an imperfect port
One of the many appeals of journey is getting lost in its surreal landscape of a world. The original on ps3 was gorgeous and a showcase game of last generation.So almost a week after SKY comes out for iOS, the new game by the original creators of Journey which has amazing benchmark defining graphics for the iPhone, we get this lazy low res port.What could the devs do to remedy this situation. Quite simple provide options for the consumer to choose how much resolution the textures will have and also provide a menu option of the recommendation for the phone. If they are trying to get it to work on all phones that’s fine, but the iPhone XS could easily run the original journey I un compromised. Heck my iPhone 8 can run sky which is a more graphically demanding game fluidly.Devs here is a promise. I will erase this review if you address the concerns I mentioned. Otherwise it stands as is.
No tech support for issue
I’ve been trying to contact the developer for 1 week as this doesn’t work on my iPad. They haven’t responded. Help!!!
Beautiful game, awful controls
Like others, I loved the game, breathtaking visuals, and clever challenges. But the controls were awful! You control your movement with your left fingers and the camera with your right. But the camera is WAY too fast, even on its slowest setting. I kept wanting to use the interaction from Sky, where they got it right and intuitive. I probably won’t play it through a second time due to how frustrating the controls are.
I usually don’t write reviews but this game made me feel things. I got teary at the end. It’s so beautiful.
Black screen for about 10 seconds before it crashes itself out. Even tried redownloading, nada.
