“...the game's graphics and soundtrack are gorgeous.”
9/10 – Pocketgamer

“The length is great, both the amount and variety of puzzles are superb, the presentation is stunning, the characters are charming, and the story is compelling.”
5/5 – TouchArcade

“...all this is accompanied by a real stormer of a soundtrack, predominantly jazz, that’s the sort of thing you just leave playing even when you aren’t.”

Ok, so... The Journey Down Chapter 2. Just like the first chapter this game is funny, well written, interesting to explore. Funny dialogues, a very peculiar visual style, The Jouney Down surely deserves a chance. Maybe a little too easy (I just got stuck on one puzzle, the last one) but it kinda helps the story to flow. A nice little game that will keep you interested for 3-4 hours, it's original, the voiceover is great, TJD2 is definitely worth a shot. Thumbs up.

The sequel TJD1 deserved. Expands upon the first with a longer story, more locations, better puzzles and equally great artwork & music. Loved the atmosphere! Stoked for chapter 3, hoping its as affordable as the first 2 (bundle incoming!?) :D

Short version: 86%
The second part of this Rastafari-themed adventure game miniseries is somewhat shorter than the first one, but makes up for it with a more engaging story, interesting locations, and complex puzzles.

Long version:
The Journey Down: Chapter Two took almost two years to reach the players, but it was worth it. The overall tone got a significant revamp, giving it an actual feel of adventure and thrills instead of being a puzzle game with a funny cast.

Even though the characters still act the same way (which is a good point, since they made the first chapter so memorable), the plot is a lot thicker around them. You have to explore a new city where everything seems to be crooked and corrupted, and where the mystery of Kanandodo and his discovery run deeper than ever, making the story progress in territories you may have not even suspected…

…when said story actually progresses. Because the game’s difficulty has increased, despite being made for tablet players. There is less crazy adventure game logic involved, but you have to backtrack often, and a lot. And the last puzzle… even point ‘n’ click veterans may hit a brick wall there.
Still, the game is quite short, shorter than the first chapter, with around 2-5 hours of play time. But the content is so strong that this drawback is barely recognisable.

More beautiful, exciting and fun than the first. After the first episode I felt like "ok, this is pretty cool... we'll see how it ends". It's obvious to me now that it only gets better and the entire series is gonna be a blast.

In this second episode there are more locations to explore, characters to meet, beautiful artwork to drool at and feel immersed in... you won't be disappointed. A little genre jewel!

RIP Simon D'Souza, your music was truly a gift.

...So how long do we have to wait for chapter 3?

I love the original character design in these games. The voice acting is stellar as always, the music and sound are great, and the puzzles are difficult enough to keep your interest without getting frustrating. The story really develops in this chapter and I got sucked in a lot more than I did with chapter 1. The dialogue does go on for a long time sometimes, but it's well written, so relax and enjoy it rather than trying to rush through.

Overall, I recommend the game, though I definitely suggest you play chapter 1 first.
