I've always been a fan of the Jules Verne classic since I read the book as a boy. So was really excited to see this game. It is beautifully written with a lot of decision making involved to complete the journey. The point is no matter how many times you finish it, there is still another way to go around the world. Smooth graphical play with a nice soundtrack. You just have to get used to the reading of the story of the journey which may not be for some. Delightful game to pass hours away without notice.
Everything a mobile game should be Heavy on text but well written without feeling too linear. Time management skills and geographic understanding are essential to finishing early. The protagonist is gay which caught me off guard and apparently Monsieur Fodd must be a hemophiliac or something cuz he always needs to be pampered. My advice to the developers, Please DO journey to the center of the earth in the same style.
Simply beautiful! This is as close to everything i ever want in a book-game that it can get. The story is never really repeating itself and the events that follow from your choices are beautifully written. It's fun to buy various items from different cities, to sell for a profit, to save as souvenirs or to unlock different paths in the game. The story is really only built around the vallet, Passepartout, and his master becomes a smaller or bigger part depending on how much you want him to be involved. 4.99 out of 5!
Wonderfully Relaxing Interactive Novel Bought this game expecting something very different than what I got. I even tried to return the game, but it was passed 48 hours of purchase. Now stuck with the game I tried to get my $5 out of it. Having to do this caused me to have a new appreciation for the game. Enjoying the storyline, the beautiful art, and the decisions I am presented with. That said, there is consistent lag when choosing an option in the text every now and again. Love the game.
A gem The breadth of the game and the experience it delivers in three hours is stunning. The writing is excellent, the rhythm perfect. In my first playthrough, I helped infiltrating a spy, paid fishermen to sneak in a military city and was jailed for that, climbed on top a zeppelin, had to run with slavers through Africa and barely made it back in time. Exhilarating.
Good story If you love to read and just get in to story this is your game!!! If u expect some sort of gameplay don't get it. This game is just a novel but u decide what will happened with ur characters!P.S. I've went through it 3 times by now, and I'll carry on
We have received several letters from Quetta, begging for assistance! It would appear that a number of faithful retainers have been cruelly abandoned there by their masters, and left stranded without money or means of escape.
M. Fogg has taken steps to ensure no further servants are abandoned. Those poor souls already stranded must "restart" in London (but I am assured that any previous successful circumnavigations will not be forgotten).
