  • Summary: 101 years ago, that's when we found it. The Universal Source Code. It's the source code to all that has existed, and all that ever will. And as we came to understand it, we sought to change it, to recreate a world free of evil and malevolence. A world that will finally know peace. To this101 years ago, that's when we found it. The Universal Source Code. It's the source code to all that has existed, and all that ever will. And as we came to understand it, we sought to change it, to recreate a world free of evil and malevolence. A world that will finally know peace. To this end, we have conquered countless impossibilities. We are only two weeks away from the final phase. But then...

    Featuring a new battle system blending RPG and strategy, a style of Japanese animation graphic and the unforgettable story. Wanderjahr delivers the next step of real-indie games.

    Wanderjahr TryAgainOrWalkAway hides a very competent and well designed strategy combat/puzzle game under the casual friendly visuals. Despite some struggle and grinding occasions that pop up now and then (one might even call some of the bosses overly unfair), the overall experience is very satisfying so even in massive defeat you don’t feel you were wasting your time. You will probably get the most out of this one playing it in portable mode with touchscreen controls, so make sure you have a screen wipe at the ready; even a single battle can lead up to hundreds of index finger taps on your Switch screen so tap softly... but tap decisively.

    A free demo is on the eShop that consists of the first world, including the end boss, and it is worth a look since it gives a very good impression of how the game plays and what it is. With the full game, you get 15+ hours of content for only $9.99, and you can return to completed stages to improve your completion times for crowns and a better star rating, which are tied to in-game achievements. Just don’t expect a ton of variety or hand-holding. Wanderjahr won’t take you a year to beat it, but it might just feel like it.

    Wanderjahr TryAgainOrWalkAway is based on the JRPG style and adds a large combat component to it, bringing along a strategic component, a fun and simple adventure and a commendable soundtrack. Not everything hits the right spot, though, as the controls are in need of a reshape, the game's plot has no sense of direction and it often feels more like the kind of game to play on a phone or on a tablet than on a gaming console.

    Wanderjahr: Try Again or Walk Away is a bland strategy game that feels more like a mobile game, very little interaction and lack of variety in gameplay make it a passable experience.
