    A Ride into the Mountains won’t last you more than an hour, but it doesn’t need to. You’ll enjoy every one of those 60 minutes. Ride is the sort of experience that’ll hook you from its first moment and leave you completely satisfied in the end. It’s downright elegant in its presentation and gameplay. Don’t miss this one.

    For only a dollar, this game is really a great value and an impressive effort from developers Chia-Yu Chen and Lee-Kuo Chen.

    A Ride Into the Mountains overcomes a few small rough spots to offer a challenging, intriguing, evocative, and memorable adventure of horseback archery with a stellar minimalist aesthetic.

    This isn't a novelistic game. It's poetic. It doesn't say much, but it says it with quiet elegance.

    There's something of Ico or Shadow of the Colossus in A Ride into the Mountains, and we're not just talking about the setting. [Nov 2013, p.79]

    As understated as just about every aspect of A Ride into the Mountains might be, everything comes together to craft a truly impressive experience.

    A Ride Into The Mountains is a ramshackle indie effort with frustrating controls and poor translation, but it's also imaginative, charming, and worth 69p.

    There's a tranquil beauty and charm to A Ride into the Mountains that is somewhat undercut by its troublesome controls.

    A charming game, but ultimately not a very good one. [Nov 2013, p.80]
