What is Candleman: The Complete Journey about?
Candleman: The Complete Journey is a unique puzzle platformer, where light is both a welcome ally and a deceptive foe. Take the role of a little candle who can burn for only 10 seconds, and venture through an unsettling darkness of challenging levels with a smooth difficulty curve. Use your wits to overcome obstacles based on the mechanics of light and shadow, while exploring a wide range of enchanted environments as you seek out the distant glow.
With Candleman you can expect a really nice game, which reminds you of games like Journey, Limbo and Little Nightmares in the best moments. The design of the levels is very varied and imaginative, light and colours are nicely accentuated, but sometimes the surroundings are a bit too dark. Musically, the game is very well staged and the speaker is doing an excellent job. The jump passages are quite crisp, but thanks to the simple and direct control very well feasible. The difficulty increases significantly during the course of the game and certainly offers some frustrating moments, but thanks to the lights that always show you the way, you can hardly get lost. Small candle, but very big game. Absolute buy recommendation.
