► A Review of Drizzlepath
Drizzlepath is a casual, environmental kind of walking gameplay. There’s not much to do, so if you’re looking for an active game where you do things, this won’t be for you.
But if you’re looking to have a relaxing moment of gameplay and want to wander around an environment you might not happen to see everyday, then here you go. Hiking isn’t everyone’s thing, but sometimes, you have to enjoy nature–even in a video game.
I can’t remember what I was searching for when I came across this game. I’m pretty sure it was something along the lines of point-and-click, then went to Indie games, and then casual, and there this was. I thought the graphics were beautiful and bought it off that notion.
Basically you start off as your character–you can see their shadow as well as their shoes if you look down–and you have to make your way to the top of the mountain via the path.
Don’t be afraid to venture off the path, though. Have a look around!
You’ve got checkpoints in the game, and normally when you reach one you get music and a woman talking. I have a hard time understanding what it is she’s saying due to her accent, and that was kind of one of the flaws. The music is relaxing though.
Toward the middle of your progression the game takes more of a dark turn as you head up the mountain. It gets darker, it rains a bit more, then begins to snow. Eventually you’ll reach the top of the Mountain of Fire where others are waiting.
