    The graphics are stellar, the music and sounds are amazing, and the controls are straightforward and intuitive. The mashup of match-three puzzle RPG and tactical strategy works out incredibly well, and the game is challenging with high replay value. The variety in mission objectives also offers up something new for each mission, so it’s not always the same thing for every level. And if you like a good dystopian sci-fi story, then Ticket to Earth has that too. And for what it’s worth, the RPG aspect of the game, in terms of character skills and upgrades, is surprisingly in-depth. Ticket to Earth is a keeper, and is one of the more enjoyable titles that have been released so far this year (and it’s been a good year for games).

    A superbly original and exceptionally presented colour matching tactical game that's all too brief. This should be remedied when the extra episodes are released.

    A mash up of old concepts in a brand new way. Even if the idea of a puzzle RPG makes you balk, you need to give this one a go.

    Despite the frustrating randomness of Ticket to Earth, I had a really great time with the game. Between the interesting characters and (eventually) satisfying combat, I can't wait to see what's in store in episode two.

    There’s a really cool and enjoyable puzzle strategy game in Ticket to Earth. The problem is all the supposedly random bits end up making things feel unfair. Failing a level because the tiles happened to spawn in a way to help an enemy chase me down isn’t challenging, it’s cheap. Missing out on collecting important items on the board because they often appear where enemies can grab them first isn’t fun, it’s frustrating. I really, really want to like Ticket to Earth, but I just don’t have the patience for its poor balancing.

    Ticket to Earth is not a book by Sartre. One need not spend too much time assessing it in depth. However, the player is clearly not going to suffer the dreaded death by PowerPoint; the theme of the rich and powerful exploiting everybody else creates enough interest (and, sadly, relevance) to lift Ticket to Earth into more than just another tile based mobile game. It even meant yours noobishly had no problems whatsoever going through the grind required to upgrade my character to a level I could actually make progress with. I needed to know what’s going to happen!

    Good Story touches on a lot of human themes that has an eye on the big picture, gets you stirred up. Slightly cheesy characters and dialogue,Good Story touches on a lot of human themes that has an eye on the big picture, gets you stirred up. Slightly cheesy characters and dialogue, yet very deep and well developed characters. Good music. Good Combat, yet simple enough. I can't imagine who wouldn't enjoy this game. Expand

    Legitimately one of the prettiest games I’ve played. Characters are sort of tropey, but the story is enjoyable. Powers feel meaty and cool.Legitimately one of the prettiest games I’ve played. Characters are sort of tropey, but the story is enjoyable. Powers feel meaty and cool. The only thing is that the game ‘ended’ (two chapters are out so far) before I got to upgrade nice and fully.
