Gameplay: The gameplay of "Year Walk" can be boiled down into one word: adventure. Of course when the gameplay is simplified down to one word, a massive injustice is done to the title. "Year Walk" is the story of Årsgång. An ancient Swedish phenomenon of finding ones future through a supernatural "adventure". This adventure is one of terrifying creatures and supernatural puzzles. The player is tasked with navigating different "planes" of the world and attempting to complete the "walk" with little guidance. This tasks the player with various puzzles and obstacles that are no small feat to accomplish.
Graphics: The graphics in "Year Walk" are reminiscent of pop-up books. With each character, object, or "plane" of the world separate from each other. This gives the otherwise dark and disturbing content the aesthetic of a children's story, and in the case of "Year Walk" this works perfectly. Also, nearly all of the graphics can be interacted with. Whether it be taps on the screen or rotations of the device, most of all graphics can be interacted with in some way.
Sound: Unlike many other titles, the sound in "Year Walk" is part of the experience. Not only providing an increased sense of depth, but in fact necessary to some parts of the game. As graphics and controls are the main components of most games, so is it with the music and sound effects. With such a focus on the sound, a use of headphones is recommended. While this isn't necessarily a problem, it is definitely something to take in to account while playing the game.
Verdict: "Year Walk" is an absolutely stunning experience that can be easily enjoyed by a large audience of people, young and old.
