It’s challenging and pleasant at times, but not really engaging. [10/2014, p.61]

Road Not Taken is an endless stream of puzzles and a mysterious world which you just can’t stop exploring. Every new secret you solve brings up new exciting questions.

Ultimately you'll master the mechanics of the game and it ends up being very basic at that point.

Road Not Taken is a pretty challenging puzzle game that especially fans of roguelike games will love. It is too bad that dying is often not in your own control.

For all its delightful art and writing, the cold logic in its Gordian design is unrelenting. [Sept 2014, p.115]

It’s a testament to Road Not Taken’s creepy little world that I’m so willing to continue the search, and to its gameplay and style that each foray remains rewarding.

Road Not Taken might not always be successful in making players feel remorseful for paths avoided, but the game itself stands as one journey that at least everyone should attempt; if only to expose themselves to the game's frustrating, yet undeniably fresh idiosyncrasies.

Road Not Taken is a very charming and entertaining puzzler, with a deeper mystery behind it yet to be solved. I will definitely be traveling this road more than once, and you should too!

Overall, Road Not Taken is a good little title. The puzzles can be harsh, but they are always solvable. The visuals and the way the various combinations are designed are truly delightful, but it’s let down by some annoying UI stuff. Each new year has you finding new things which never fail to bring a smile to your face. However the level of obscurity you face is sometimes frustrating. It’s not perfect by any means, but it is certainly refreshing.

Road Not Taken is the cutest catalyst for an existential crisis I've ever encountered. Its puzzles are complex and brutal, at times unforgiving and in other ways surprisingly merciful. The townspeople are lovable and unique, even in their bite-sized interactions. The game is packed with surprises – it's deep in narrative, world and interaction. Overall, though, it's a roguelike.
