Review Faraway: Puzzle Escape

Brandon Girod
8.6Excellent
Beautiful art design, peaceful but mysterious ambiance, great music
Puzzles are perhaps too easy
I’m not really a point and click adventure kind of guy. I enjoy some of the TellTale games on PC, but the golden age of PC point and click adventure games passed me right on by. Faraway: Puzzle Escape for Android is a game that I could truly enjoy because it takes the best parts of the genre and streamlines everything, though it does sacrifice a bit on the storytelling end of things.
Faraway is a tough game to describe without really spoiling anything. You stumble upon some ruins in the very beginning of the game, and after solving a fairly easy puzzle, you quickly find yourself being whisked away through a mysterious portal. This is the general structure of each level.
Solving puzzles is only one part of each level, however. The story is told in three notes you’ll find littered throughout each level, and finding these hidden notes is where the game becomes incredibly challenging. Usually, you’ll find one note hidden in almost plain site, but the other notes are much more difficult to find. In fact, I’ve never found all three notes in any level, and there are some levels where I never found any at all.
Faraway: Puzzle Escape is a wonderful and somewhat relaxing game. It can be as difficult or as easy as you want it to be. The art design is pleasant and simple, and the music helps add to the mysterious but peaceful ambiance the game creates. It certainly won’t be a game for everyone, but it won over this point and click hater.
