Review The Trail

Brandon Girod
9.3Excellent
Beautiful graphics, engaging gameplay, great voice acting
Laggy camera, suffers from some performance issues
I’ve never really given much thought on what a survival game for a mobile phone might play like. It’s a genre that doesn’t really fit on a phone in the same way it fits on PC. The Trail for Android is a survival game that has been mobile-fied and essentially has changed my mind completely.
I’m a huge fan of the Zelda: Wind Waker game, most notably because of its beautiful cel-shaded graphics. When I first launched this game, I was immediately thrown back to my days sailing the high seas of Hyrule. The graphics in this game are absolutely stunning. It’s the type of game that you could play 20 years from now and they would still hold up. It’s just got that flair most games don’t have because they’re worried about trying to look too realistic.
Graphics aside, the game is actually really soothing to play, too. Essentially, the game is chopped up into bite-sized pieces. You’re ultimately trying to achieve a list of goals that are presented to you in the beginning of the game, and you’ll do it by running there. Each time you set out, you’ll have a backpack, a stamina bar and the ability to do things like hunt or collect items. As you progress through the game, you learn that you can craft items to make your character stronger and you learn about different quests you can go on.
You’ll rest at various campsites along the way. Reaching a campsite is the end of your run. At this point you’ll be able to sell off any items you don’t need, which gives you extra room to store new stuff on your next run. You’ll meet other travelers on the road as well, and if you outsell the other travelers during the trading phase then you’ll get extra prizes.
Overall, I feel like The Trail is a great game. It’s a huge departure from what I believe most mobile games to be. I could easily see myself spending a ton of time running around, collecting stuff, crafting and generally enjoying the beautiful world the game creates.
