The Traveler’s Path (PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, X/S, PC)

Swap and rotate tiles to create a path for a traveler in The Traveler’s Path.  And that’s it, no story or anything like that.  This game is available on all current consoles and PC, but reviewed on PS4 here.

There are more than 50 levels in all, and in each one you must usually get your traveler from one flag to another.  To do so, you can rotate tiles with paths on them, and swap them out with other tiles by pressing the button to highlight them, and then moving to a new tile and pressing the button again.  Some tiles that are different colors can’t be swapped or rotated, and the game will tell you if you try to do those things.  Sometimes they mix things up by having you collect three coins in order on the paths (bronze, silver, and gold), and other times you must get two travelers to their flags (those are especially tricky).

Nothing really terribly wrong with the game.  It can be easy at times and there is no time limit.  Although some tricky levels could’ve used a hint system or something.  Also the instructions for the game are flashed on the top right corner and can be easy to miss sometimes.  And the game is a bit buggy, too.  But otherwise, this is a nice and chill little simple puzzler.

Kid Factor:

Nothing violent or objectionable here.  Reading skill is helpful for some of the text, but not necessary just to play.  The Traveler’s Path is rated E for Everyone.
