The Traveler’s Path from eastasiasoft and White Rose Games is a minimalistic puzzle game in which you’ll help your character reach the end of each single-screen level by moving and rotating the different available puzzle pieces r. Your objective is to create a path your traveler can cross to the end of each level – hence the game’s name.
The game starts on the easy side, and in the first few levels, the path will be obvious. As I progressed, I noticed that the game remained easy for a good while, and the difficulty increased very slowly. Some levels ask you to collect all the coins on the path and recommend you to set them in order of bronze, silver, and gold, although the game doesn’t have any consequence if you do not create the most optimal path apart from the time required to complete each level.
On the presentation side, the game is cartoony and has a colorful look. The levels do look very similar, as there are not many different tile styles. I noticed that some effort had been made on the first few levels’ backgrounds, but after that, it’s mostly the same generic level design. If I had some nitpicking to say about this game, I would say that the background theme was underwhelming and was reused over and over again.
