It's fairly easy and short as I did not need a walkthrough (which I usually do) and finished it in 4 hours. A rarity in point & click games - all the actions you have to take seem logical and not rage-inducing. Great voice acting and soundtrack. The graphics look really outdated - I thought the game was much older than 2010. Could not play it in fullscreen mode as it got all weird and glitchy (I have a Thinkpad P70 with Windows 7). Nonetheless, looking forward to the next instalment. Definitely recommend getting it on sale, as $10 for such a short game doesn't seem like good value, even if I enjoyed it.

The Journey Down oozes with style through its beautiful hand-painted backgrounds and pleasant color palette, excellent soundtrack and voice acting, engaging story, hilarious dialogues and original characters, coherent puzzles and just plain brilliant fun. It reminds me about everything that makes point-and-click adventures one of my long-term favorite genres, without any of the annoyances that plagued it along the years.

The first chapter offers approximately 2 1/2 hours of entertainment, including a few nicely produced cut-scenes, dialogues and gameplay, and is clearly meant to be followed by the second and upcoming third chapters. In many ways this has all the winning characteristics of a good Monkey Island, especially the humor and overall positively carefree vibe, with all the piratey bits replaced by African-inspired culture set in a more modern setting. Kudos to a very creative team! Looking forward to play the rest of the story.

This game is really wonderful with lovable characters, a good story and beautiful music & art. The first chapter is rather short and the puzzles are quite easy but I don't mind because everything else is just that good.

The second chapter is much longer (at least it felt like it) and has some more complicated puzzles. I just can't wait for the third part!!

I highly recommend this game for peeps that are new to the click&point genre - and if you're a c&p nerd like me I still recommend it just for it's coziness.

I like this game! Dialogues full of humor and funny characters. Talking around is the most attracting part while puzzles are just so-so. However, I encountered a game-breaking bug which prevents me from actually fully finish this chapter. Hopefully won't run into any in the second one. ;D

There's some potential here, but the jokes fell flat for me, the protagonist's comments became grating, and as previously noted, the first episode is far too short...

8.7/10 – Journey to the Underworld in This 3-Part Series!

This story follows Bwana, and his trusted side-kick Kito. They operate a dilapidated gas station in a Caribbean Port. Life was pretty relaxed and casual until the day they came across the journal; a book that describes the underworld and various information about their lost father. As orphans he had adopted and raised them and then soon after disappeared without a trace.

The game has some good graphics and follows your typical point and click template. I felt like the production values were on par with major companies if not exceeding in many areas. My favorite part was the voice acting; the characters had soul and some personality that quickly immerses you in the story. This episode was pretty short at just 3 hours; but it was extremely enjoyable and time flew by! This is one of the best kickstarter games I have played without a doubt! If you don't like point and click games this won't change your mind about the genre or anything.

Worth the $9; occasionally you can find this for $3-5 on sale. I will be playing episodes 2-3!

A goofy yet stylish quality start of a series with a superb soundtrack. The biggest con is that it's excessively short - I'd apparently finished it in less than two hours, stuck on a single puzzle which basically involved using a random item on a random item without any in-game clue. I HAD played it once before, but retained almost no memories of the gameplay - though even with that, I doubt it would've taken me much more than 2 hours overall. Just about every other puzzle in the game is at least vaguely logical if you paid attention and checked everything before, which is definitely a plus. Graphically from great to... hm... and mostly quite stylish, some chuckles here and there... Great soundtrack, good voice-acting (though one character, for some reason, sounds like he's talking through a 2$ microphone, really strange). The lack of body would have me consider a non-recommendation, despite all the obvious positive sides, but together with the excellent Chapter Two, it's a thumbs-up.

This is very much in the vein of traditional point-and-click style games like the Monkey Island series. If you're into the kind of puzzles that you play in games like that (including sometimes frustrating video game logic), you'll find this to be a delightful game. In fact, I think a lot of the puzzles and logical conclusions you have to make to reach solutions in this game are actually much more straightforward (and aha!-inducing) than a lot of the puzzles in traditional point-and-clicks.

There's a lot of fun humor in these games, and a lot of moving back and forth between areas and basking in your own cleverness when you've finally solved a puzzle. The art and music style is Afro-Caribbean as others have pointed out, and apparently many of the character profiles are based on African masks, which is pretty neat. It's also cool to have a video game that features neary all African characters--I mean how often do you see that? If all of this sounds good to you, then I totally recommend getting this game.

Game gives hints on how to solve problems/puzzles (rare, only remember 1 time) in game by main character telling how I don't like that if you dont manage it first. So it's bad design in that way. otherwise nice point and click game.

If you are looking for an adventure where you have to click everything on everything else, this may be your game.

The solution to the first puzzle is use breadsticks as steps of a ladder. Says the walkthrough... I had already uninstalled it.

An excellent although short adventure, with it’s unique style and characters as it’s main selling point. The puzzles are mostly logical and you won’t find much frustration during the 2-3 hours it takes to complete. And as those hours are spent in an humorous noir setting with a fantastic jazz and dub soundtrack they will fly past quick.

Coming late to the game here has it’s advantages as the third and final episode is now funded, in the making and with a probable release during 2016. That makes it three years between the first and the final episode, all individually funded with kickstarters. You can have whatever opinion about releasing a game in such a manner, but in the end it made this game possible, which adventure game fans should be grateful for.

Recommended, if you can hold out for the ending for about a year.

Intro - About
Find the parts you need for your old airplane for someone to help you get out of debt. This point and click adventure, has comedy and wonderful art and puzzles as you make progress. Play as what I can only assume “Tiki” people or as they call it “Afro-Caribbean twist” and make your way around town collecting things you need to use to get farther a long the story rich campaign.

Pros & Cons
++ Pros
+Appealing art style
+Story Rich
+Price (Current $8.99 US)
+Fun
+Comedy

-- Cons
-Cutscene sounds did not fit video
-Short story - 3 hrs average
-Some things you need to do are very random and there is no clue on what to do
-Tedious walking
-Must be a random clicker / Curious Explorer


Personal Opinion
I found this game very charming and appealing. I loved the graphics and the art they decided to use and made for a much different feel to the game compared to intensely, high graphics. This was a very good game to just sit down and relax to and enjoy a good story with some great puzzles. The ending left off at a hanger which clearly shows there is going to be a 2nd chapter (There is right now). The puzzles were not to difficult though it can be quite a bit tedious running back and forth if you don’t know exactly what you need to do. Most of the time I was walking every where around town about 3 time for one thing trying to find it. I used the guide for about 3 things to help me get back on track.

Final recommendation:
I really did enjoy the game play and the cutscenes did not bother me all that bad due to the shortness. Based on story, graphics, controls, art, difficulty in puzzles and the amount of things to do, I rate this game and good 8/10. This was a game that I didn’t want to walk away from. The story was great and the personalities of the characters made me feel connected. I cant wait to play the second one!

Almost alright, but all the puzzles are either so blatantly simple or nonsensically obtuse that you will spend most of your time searching areas again and again hoping there is something that has now become interactive to solve a puzzle you had figured out in your head screens earlier. The hit and miss quality of voice acting and choppy cutscenes combined didn't impress me much either and broke immersion multiple times throughout the short playtime. It might look a little different, and have decent music, but there are plenty of adventure games from more than a decade ago that have better gameplay.

This is a hidden gem. If you enjoy old-school style point-and-click inventory-based adventure games, you'll enjoy this game. I was a bit unsure, but the unique setting, the charming characters, and the well designed puzzles made this a real treat. There was only one time that I needed to look online for help, and that was just a case where I thought I'd already tried what the solution to the puzzle was. And there was only one truly out there puzzle with that wacky adventure game logic. The rest were mostly sensible and intuitive, with a few light logic puzzles as well. Something else I really liked about this game is that some items are reused in multiple puzzles, rather than everything being one-and-done. Things that would be considered useful tools are in fact, useful in many situations. Outside of that, the art style and music are both fantastic as well. Be advised, it does end on a cliffhanger, and you'll certainly want to proceed immediately to Chapter Two, which is even better than the first chapter.
