Fun game but glitches too much 3/5
I have an iPhone XR and my screen will often flash purple while playing.
No sound 5/5
Can’t get sound to play...
A Historic Masterpiece. 5/5
This game will go down as one of the most magical experiences anyone could witness. It could only be topped by SKY, the followup.
By Core Dragontears
First time reviewing any game on here and that says a lot. Was beautiful, immersive, relaxing. Loved it.
I’m concerned 2/5
This game is good but there are SO MANY GLITCHES. there are purple specks that show up then disappeared that hurt my eyes. I’ll give this game a better rating once that’s fixed.
Excellence in gaming 5/5
This is a true achievement. Stunning visuals and amazing score. Highly recommend using AirPlay to project to a large screen and big sound system.
Great but frustrating 5/5
Was almost at the end and then LOST MY SCARF so I could do nothing. I could not climb the long scarfs stuck in the ground to get up the rocky terrain then when I tried to come back to the snow place my scarf was TINY. Overall still a great game.
Great, but possible to add keyboard support? 4/5
I realize it’s been 5 months since an update so I don’t really expect keyboard support but it would be great with magic keyboard support if this is easy to implement. Maybe apple will give you a nice store placement for the trouble? :).
This game is an absolute delight. I was immediately sucked in to the beauty and surroundings. This really isn’t my type of game but I am so glad I took the chance and purchased it. I have no regrets. Totally worth it. The devs poured their hearts out into this creation and it really shows. Thank you for this amazing ride. I hope you can continue to produce more like this.
its boring 2/5
all you do is walk around. nothing else. just. walk. dont get it
Not worth $5 2/5
Gameplay is good but i beat the game in an hour, for $5 an hour seems too short for me
Unplayable due to glitches. 3/5
Ideally would want my money back for this game.
Bought to play alongside a pal, but frequent and consistent glitches made completion of the game impossible.
Perfect game 5/5
One of my favorite games, but it doesn’t load on an IPad 6th gen. Crashes every time. Please fix!
Purple Lights 1/5
By Marc Manabat
Flashing purple lights while playing. Thought it was part of the game. Then I started looking through the reviews and saw other people having the same problem.
It’s really buggy 2/5
When I’m playing it bugs out like the screen runs purple in some spots and I no it’s not my phone cuz I Reyes other games and it didn’t do that
Can u fix that??
I really like the game
To hard to play on iPad 1/5
I like the game but the poor controls makes it a dud
Maybe it’s because I played Sky first, but this is not at all as good as I wanted it to be. Terrible controls, kind of boring. 😕 I feel crabby I spent five bucks on it.
Weird Bug. 3/5
By The Snow Princess 4268
I recently downloaded this game, and there are these purple spots that randomly flash for no apparent reason. Apparently this only happens to iPhone XR users.
Temple level is not working 1/5
This is a beautiful game that I was enjoying. Unfortunately, as others have mentioned, the temple level is not working properly. There are only flags on the first platform so I am not able to get up high enough to get the second mural. Same thing when I tried on my iPhone XS as well as iPad.
beautiful but requires 2 hands 2/5
By sweetie the amazing
I love Sky, Children of Light so I wanted to try another TGC game. I cannot fly in this game tho. The controls require two handed controls. One side moves, the other side flies. Having had a stroke I cannot manipulate the controls well enough. It’s sad to walk in a flying game. Sky is much better and free.
Super beautiful and unique game, but... 3/5
So I found out about this game through Sky: Children of the Light and I became immediately enchanted with the story, music, and visuals.
I will say that the game is A LOT shorter than I had expected for the price.
A big one for me was the glitching/bugs when playing with another player. The carpets didn’t help me up the building like they did when I played alone. Not too big of a deal if you and your companion can help each other get up the building. HOWEVER, during the climb up the mountain with another player is where the big glitches were for me. One of us would get stuck in a never-ending wind (disappointing that we were unable to finish the game together because of a glitch/bug) or there would be no wind at all and there would be no enemies, as well. It really takes away from the experience of playing such a beautiful game so uniquely with another person.
Another big one was, and I don’t know if it’s a connectivity issue or something or if its just that there aren’t a lot of iOS players playing the game these days, that during my first play-through I ran into three players but ever since then I’m lucky to just run into one person during the journey.
Screen rotation and controls got a little wanky from time to time, too, but other than that I really like the game!
Beautiful but glitchy 3/5
By Josey Hu
This is my first review on any game in the app store. I want to start off by saying the game itself is absolutely breathtaking. The lack of dialogue and beautiful music really immerse you into the game’s atmosphere as you explore the world and figure out how to move forward on your own.
I really wanted to give this game 5 stars, but I docked off two due to the following:
1. GLITCHES. I downloaded this game on my iPhone XR, and for about 30-40% of the game, there was this flashing, purple pixelated mess on the left half side of the screen. Not sure if anyone else experienced this issue, but every time it happened, I was detracted from the gameplay. Please fix this.
2. RESTART. I wasn’t unable to unlock all the hidden caves, but I really wish you could keep your scarf length/progress the second time around. The gameplay the second time was too repetitive, so much so that I ended giving up about 10 mins into my second run, especially as I couldn’t fly for long and it felt too grindy. I understand how it fits in with the concept and storyline, but maybe giving an option to players would be nice.
Would definitely give the game 5/5 if there weren’t any rendering glitches!
Did not save and brought me back to close to the beginning 5/5
I am so disappointed. I usually do not pay for games but this one looked ethereal. I was so proud to get through the levels and got to the underground world. Came back to resume today and it brought me all the way back to the beginning despite lighting up other checkpoints. Very disappointing. Want to stop before I even truly get started.
This game is fun but I’m a bit scared of it for some reason 3/5
So like last month in February, I was browsing the App Store for a game to play. But when I saw journey, I immediately wanted to play it because it was by ThatGameCompany! ThatGameCompany has other amazing games that are relaxing and an adventure, so they are my FAVORITE GAME MAKER!!!! ❤️❤️❤️! I got it and asked my parents for it and it worked after some begging. So I got it and it was a bit hard, as it’s similar to sky:children of the light, which is another game by ThatGameCompany. And it’s fun, but I wish it was less scary in the part with the flying spotlight monsters. So I looked up online videos to see which part the flying spotlight monsters were. So I know where they are, but I don’t trust myself to walk over the spot they are sleeping in to wake them up. As I saw on an online tutorial video, I see the monster rise up out of the sand and knock you over, and then the monster looks around and flys up. So I am afraid to go to that spot, as if you go in the monster’s light, it will turn red and when you hear a click sound his eye will turn green and he will strike you and that will tear your scarf. Also from the online videos from the same person who made that video, I saw previous tutorials of the different worlds in Journey there was another player with the tutorial maker. I never encountered another player or saw one, which makes me a bit afraid as if they already died (which apparently you can in the game) I was expecting you start over like in sky:children of the light when you die in that game. So I was wondering if another player could be with me to wake the monster so I didn’t have to myself. But there was no one else so I’m a bit afraid and now I’m not playing often. I try to go closer to where the monster is sleeping to wake it up, but I turn back quick. I know I might never finish the game not waking up the flying spotlight monster, so I play every once in a while to kind of, well, you know, get closer and become less afraid of the flying spotlight monster. But ThatGameCompany works hard on their games, and puts effort into it so I’m grateful for a pretty and unique game that could have been years of hard work. Thank you, ThatGameCompany! ❤️😊😁🎉👍😘🙂🐼🐶🐱🌈☀️☁️🍉🍦🍭🍬🍪🍩❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤🤍🤎💖💕🔴🟠🟡🟢🔵🟣
Keeps Crashing 1/5
By Nine Times Six
This game worked two days ago, now I can’t get it to start. I try to open it, and it crashes. My screen goes black and then goes to home screen. How can I get my money back?
Incredibly boring 1/5
Why does this game get such rave reviews? There’s nothing to it and the ending doesn’t really resolve anything? I get that it’s artistic and beautiful, but c’mon!
I’m just speechless!!!
I can’t even play the game 3/5
I know this game is great. The reviews this game had were overwhelmingly positive when it was first released. My game can’t seem to stay open at all. It just crashes every time I play it. I have the game on default settings. I also have an Iphone 7 if that helps. Could the devs please help me solve this or give me a refund. I’ll take anything at this point.
Flashing violet lights 1/5
This bug I guess is really annoying!
Great game, but..... 3/5
By The DC Critic
Journey is undeniably a masterpiece, but it was obviously NOT made for a portable device. It crashed so many times while I played that it came very close to completely ruining the experience for me. It also is not nearly as graphically impressive on a portable device. Just stick to the console version for this one.
Mixed emotions 5/5
Some parts were boring, some parts were amazing. Gave a lot for me to think about. In the end I ended up crying.
Would appreciate a higher frame rate on newer devices.
By Roger Race T Bannon
I did not know what to expect going into this game. At first you don’t know what you are doing but there are clues along the way and a pattern develops that helps you navigate. But I will just say this, I have NEVER had a game bring me to tears, but this one did! It is a beautiful story wrapped up in unique game. I highly recommend it. I’m glad to see game makers doing something unique and uplifting😇
I bought the game a few months ago and got up to halfway through the snow level, and then the game crashed. Every time I opened the game after that, it would crash when I tried to load the game.
I was too annoyed to start over, so I uninstalled the game for a while.
I decided to give it another chance some months later- since there had been updates in the meantime- and started playing again. This time I got to the entrance to the caves before the same crashing problem started.
The game itself is nice enough, but any chance I had to experience the entire story as it was intended is pretty much gone forever. It's disappointing, considering Journey's reputation.
I'll rate the game again after it's reliably fixed.
Soooo Short! 2/5
By bottle 29
I really enjoyed this game! The pictures, story, everything was absolutely gorgeous. But If I could go back in time, I still wouldn’t get this game. The thing is, five dollars is a lot! A lot for a game that I finished in one day! ONE! If you could add more to this game, that would be a lot better.
Get this for your phone. 5/5
Loved this game. Glad I’m able to play this on my phone. Definitely worth the purchase.
Great game! One thing though... 5/5
The music. It keeps glitching, going in and out. Sometimes I don’t hear anything. The game also freezes when the music glitches. Also, I wish it was a bit longer, and more difficult. I finished the game in about 2 hours. Regarding the level of difficulty, I wish more puzzles were added and the story was expanded a bit more.
Great game play and i completed the game and am going back for more!!!!
It was good 4/5
Sometimes it would glitch and lag. But overall, I was happy with my purchase. It’s kinda the same as the game Sky. Very similar actually. But it was very good; it went kinda fast though so it’s not a forever adventure game. Once done with it, you repeat everything back over again and can’t pinpoint which chapter you’d like to go back on. It was worth the purchase to me though. Thanks.
Freezes constantly 1/5
I am unable to progress in this game due to it constantly freezing and then I have to restart. I'm on new iPad. I would like my money back thank you.
i love this game! 4/5
this game is amazing but i have had a few problems which take away from the experience.
the first one is random flashes of purple (which i haven’t been able to attach in a screenshot unfortunately) that are very distracting and annoying.
the second one has only happened once but the flying carpet thing got stuck and the only reason i was able to continue was because there was another player there so we could recharge.
and the last one is that i’ve only encountered another player once, and playing with others is what i loved about sky, which is why i bought this game. i think it would really add to the experience if there was some way to encounter more players throughout the game.
other than that, this game is amazing and i highly recommend!
Pink glitch 3/5
I played TheSkyGame first before Journey and I enjoy this game a lot. I’m also not very good at knowing how to contact the game developers. I have this pink and purple glitch like thing on my game screen every time I play. Even if I exit game and restart it. Is this an occurring thing for other players or just me?
Very disappointing and sloppy made game 1/5
By Ur no mad annoying
In the past, I played sky: children of light and it was AMAZING so when I saw this game, I thought I would like it so I spent 2 dollars on it and played it. It was NOT worth even 2 dollars. The graphics are terrible, the storyline is stupid and camera controls don’t work right. I still like The companies games but I was very dissatisfied NOT WORTH THE MONEY DO NOT GET IT.
I played this game years ago and to this day it’s still my favorite game of all time. Thanks for all the hard work in bringing me this port for iOS- the only issue is a weird purple flash that appears randomly when objects/the character moves on screen. I was able to snag screenshots; running on iPhone XR. I messed around with the graphics in settings and setting to the highest quality seemed to help. Doesn’t make the game unplayable just not as enjoyable.
Beautiful, Strange Bug 5/5
By Dark Thunderstorms
This game is beautiful. It has gorgeous music and calming gameplay. The controls aren’t too hard to get used to either. My only issue is a bug that causes purple spark-looking flashes to constantly appear at the player’s feet and grew to the point where it was in random parts of the screen. I’ve seen multiple reviews that show I’m not the only one experiencing this. If this bug was fixed the game would be perfect. Otherwise, I have to say it’s quite an irritating bug. Please, please fix it. I want to be able to fully immerse myself in the artwork of Journey.
I love this game but.. 2/5
Could u fix the glitches problem?
Glitches when playing with another player 4/5
By Kawaii megumi-chan
I could finally play this game after I upgraded my iPhone from 6 to 11pro. It’s rare to meet a fellow traveler while playing the game. And when I finally did meet them, there are many glitches so I couldn’t travel with them to the end of the journey.
- Sometimes I couldn’t steer the screen.
- The wind kept constantly blowing so I couldn’t move forward.
- There was no wind at all.
- Monsters don’t appear.
- The carpets which are supposed to help you go up don’t show up.
Ethereal and magnificent. Unfortunately bugs take away from the magic significantly :( 3/5
I started playing this since it was recommended to me by a couple of friends. I absolutely love the creative concepts and meditative nature of the game itself. Even for touch screen it’s fairly intuitive and immersive.
I am however extremely sad about an irritating bug where purple pixel dots continue to appear over the main character as they run or interact with the red ribbons. It’s unfortunately persistent enough to detract a fair amount from the game play and immersive nature.
Devs please make your priority to fix this :/ It feels like driving a beautiful new sports car with a glaring key scratch on the side... Without this bug this game is an easy 5 stars.
Amazing port with a few problems 5/5
By Addy Feels
Note: You can increase the game resolution and graphics by going to the the game setting listing under the setting on your iPad or iPhone. Go to the app setting from there and you can adjust it to be higher for those who complained about the graphics. Idk why they didn’t put the option in game but it is there.
I had no problem with the game controls. They worked perfectly in my opinion But it was rare that you pair with some one there seems to be connection issues which make staying with a person the entire game difficult which ruins the experience some. There are glitches that can be addressed as well but they seem to appear only when playing with another person so they might be related. But how I love that I was able to play through this lovely game on my iPad mini. I played this on my iPad mini 5 and it played flawlessly. Love love love the visual and story is very good.
