A true challenge. Old Man's Guilt is a challenging game because you're an old man t hat's trying to get to your destination on an island filled with dangerous traps and hazards. You're bound to die a lot, and the slow movement speed isn't going to do you any favors.
Get a running start. You're an old man who needs to get a running start to really do anything in this puzzle platformer. It's a bit annoying, but hey, you're an old man, after all, right?
Solve puzzles. The island is full of puzzles that you must solve to uncover the reason why you're there in the first place. Is the story enough to keep you motivated to keep playing?
What is it about?
Visually, Old Man's Guilt carries a retro aesthetic, thanks to the 16-bit graphics that are reminiscent of titles like [Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery](https://appadvice.com/appnn/2011/04/soundtrack-superbrothers-sword-sworcery-ep-digital-vinyl). The backdrops are pretty simple, with transitional layers to make objects appear farther off in the distance, and the foreground is pretty detailed and textured, even with the pixelated style. The colors in the game are mostly muted earthy tones with some darker hues as you progress in the story. It sets the overall tone and theme of the game, which I thought was nice. However, I noticed some of the text appears fuzzy and not crisp on my iPhone 8 Plus's Retina HD screen, which irked me. There's also a rather slow transition animation for dialogue text that you can't speed up or skip, which is also annoying. There's not much of a soundtrack to the game, but it's full of sound effects to mimic the feeling of being on a remote island, which is relaxing and nice to hear.
