About This Game:

Road Not Taken is a puzzle game about surviving life's surprises. You play as a ranger adventuring through a vast, unforgiving forest in the aftermath of a brutal winter storm, rescuing children who have lost their way. Randomly generated levels deliver a limitless supply of possibilities to explore and challenges to overcome. Your actions will influence not only your own story, but that of the villagers you hope to befriend and the town you call home.

Story Details:

Each time you play Road Not Taken, you're likely to experience a very different story. The paths you take will change; the relationships you pursue will twist in ways you did not expect. Which, as it happens, is just like real life.

The villagers of Road Not Taken believe that there is an optimal path through life: a good person gets a job, falls in love and has children. You won't follow this path. Can you find your own unique way through a life?

Gameplay Details:

No path leads to the same destination in Road Not Taken. The trails you take will change, the relationships you pursue will twist in ways you might not expect, and the narrative you create with every action will be yours to decide. Every playthrough offers new and unusual creatures to encounter, secrets and items to discover, townsfolk to build relationships with, and devilish, hand-crafted puzzle rooms to solve.

Brains, Not Brawn:

Your character has the magical ability to levitate and move objects. You must figure out how to use your talents and tactics to circumvent or defeat a wide variety of dangerous creatures, obstacles, and boss encounters.

Get Lost in the Wild:

Road Not Taken is brought to life with gorgeous 2D artwork, expressively charming sprite design, and an evocative, atmospheric soundtrack. Every puzzle is a challenge of exploration and strategy, testing players to think before taking each step forward.

The best mobile game I've ever played is Triple Town by Spry Fox. I play everything they put out. This game has fantastic art, music, strategy elements, and an interesting story, however it also has a number of issues that will make it too frustrating for many casual gamers. The controls are imprecise and it crashes sometimes. The icons are too small to make out on my 6inch screen and it is a really challenging game even without these issues. All this makes sense to me only after I found out that this is a PS4 port to mobile. I didn't know Spry Fox did console! So if this game interests you play it on PS4 instead where it is so much better. If you want something for mobile play Triple Town. Both worth every penny.

The gameplay is cool and interesting, but the touch controls are horrendous. I accidentally picked up items every 5-6 times I tried to walk and many times it ruined the completion of the puzzle. Either get a controller (if the game supports it) or get it on console. The game is fun but not on the touchscreen.

The game is brilliant, but the mobile version sucks! It keeps crashing everytime I play it, so I would just recommend that you play it on PS4.
