Old Man’s Journey
By: Broken Rules


This is a complete walkthrough guide with help, hints, tips, tricks, answers and solutions for the iOS, Android and PC game, Old Man’s Journey by Broken Rules. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

See my Old Man’s Journey review.


– Take your time to plan out his path. Don’t just move him and hope it’ll all work out. You can’t move the piece of land that he’s standing on, so rushing into things often leads to lots of backtracking.

– If you start dragging a hill, the game will outline everything for you in yellow so you can see what connects. Use the yellow dots to help you confirm that a path is complete before having him try to cross.

– He’s meant to fall down waterfalls. Use them to help him get to a lower platform — just make sure it’s the right one he needs to be on!

– Tap sheep to get them to move to another grassy patch. The old man needs a clear path in order to move ahead.

– Roll wheels (barrels?) down hills to break through walls.

– Remember to interact with your environment! Sometimes you need to tap on something specific to progress the story.

– You can access the menu and replay any levels you completed by tapping on the upper lefthand corner of the screen.


Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5:

Levels 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10:

Levels 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15:

And that’s everything! I’d love to talk about that ending here, since I couldn’t do so in my review without spoiling it. I gave some of my thoughts near the end of my last video. I’d love to know what others thought!

    My game – old mans journey- wonΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t open. Just screen of old man walking against blue background. Have purchased, reloaded and deleted twice with same result. Web site offers no help or access to help. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Played it right to the end this evening. Liked the calming nature of the game. I’m the kind of person with a high intensity job and I actually like games that are super easy, tell a story, and **don’t get more complicated over time**.

    The ending – since you asked. I’m a bit double about it. The younger feminist in me would get riled up and be frustrated that men get to do what they want when they want. The more mature feminist in me acknowledges that life is complicated, people make choices that hurt other/hurt themselves…. Sometimes it’s the right thing to stand for your principles. Other times one realises life is too short and it’s better to forgive and take the joy one can find. I live in a Scandinavian country, with a great social system, so I can afford to sit on the fence about things and be philosophical about it. Still, if a game were written about a woman in her 40’s, up to her eyeballs in responsibility, what would that game look like??? May i should start writing it???

    It’s a reflective story about unplanned pregnancy and divergent paths of young people.
