Old Man's Journey is a short game featuring a man who receives a letter in the mail that prompts him to set off on a solo journey. Along the way he finds scenes that remind him of the most important moments in his life.

Setting Off

After reading the letter, walk to the right over the hills towards the house in the distance. Click on the couple on the roof for a memory to end the scene.

Village

Drag the hills up and down so you can make your way up to the stairs on the left. Climb the stairs to the top and sit down next to the cat, then click on it. Raise the blue hill so you can get over to the cat again. Lower the next hill and make your way up to the houses, then raise the blue hill to reach the high roof where the cat is waiting.

Drag down the hill with the wooden rail. Head up to the hotel and you will sit down. Click on the guitar player for a memory to end the scene.

Waterfalls

Raise the brown hill so you can go to the far right, then lower it to get to the green ledge on the left. Raise the bottom right hill and you should be able to make it there. Walk over to the roof of the building. Lift up the dark green hill and make your way to the waterfall.

Walk on to 2 more waterfalls to end up on the rocky surface below. Continue left. Lower the small green hill so you can reach the metal platform on the left. Now walk on to this waterfall to reach the railing below. Walk to the right and click on the welder for a memory to end the scene.

Lighthouse

Adjust the left green and red hills so you can reach the red hill. Step on the rocks next to the waterfall, then adjust the left red and purple hills so you can reach the left side of the bridge above. Turn the crank here so you can cross the bridge. Lower the green hill so you can get to the bricks. Walk on to the waterfall to fall to the large red hill, then head to the right.

Raise the flower-covered hill and drag the boat left so that you can jump onto the boat. Drag the boat to the far right, then get off at the jetty. Climb up towards the lighthouse and you will sit down on the bench. Click on the bell for a memory to end the scene.

Train Journey

Board the green train carriage and the train will start moving. During this section you need to quickly drag the sections of train track up and down before the train reaches them. Once you can see inside the train, click on the newspaper for a memory to end the scene.

Green Pastures

Exit the train and walk to the right. There will be some sheep on the pasture in front of you. This is the easiest way past them:

  • Click on the sheep to move them right, then walk close to them.
  • Click on the sheep to move them right, then walk close to them.
  • Click on the sheep to move them right, then walk close to them (on the next section).
  • Click on the sheep to move them to the grassy patch to the right.
  • Walk to the grassy patch on the green hill in the background.
  • Click on the sheep to move them to the grassy patch to the left.
  • Walk past the sheep to the far right.

Walk to the darker green area in the background. Drag the other 3 areas to create a path down to the stone walkway. Make your way down towards the path, and you will sit on the bench to the far right. Click on the large ship in the water for a memory to end the scene.

More Sheep

After the boat trip, head to the right. Drag the orange area up and the yellow area down, then make your way up to the base of the pink hill in the background. Now drag the top-left green area up so that it reaches the right side of the waterfall. Go there, then drop the green area back down and step on to the right side of the waterfall. There are 2 groups of sheep you need to pass this time:

  • Walk to the right grassy patch on your starting hill.
  • Click on the top group of sheep twice, so they are to your left.
  • Adjust the hills to create a path from the right sheep to the grassy patch above you on the yellow hill.
  • Walk past the sheep to the far right.

Sit on the bench, then click on the flickering light above for a memory to end the scene.

Rolling Wheels

Get off the boat and walk to the stone archway. Adjust the hills so you can reach the top of the stone structure. Now raise the hills so you can reach the orange hill on the right. Now adjust the next few hills so you can make it to the bottom right. There will be 2 large wheels in the next area. Raise the orange hill in the background, and the far wheel will destroy the stone wall. To dislodge the other wheel, you need to raise and lower the green hill repeatedly; eventually it will roll to the left. Now make your way up to the flag. Click on the flag for a memory to end the scene.

More Wheels

Drag up the hill with the stone wall, then move on to it. Now drag up the yellow hill with the wheel so that it rolls off to the left. Lower the yellow hill and get back on to it. Adjust the hill with the wheel so that it rolls right and breaks the wall. Drag this hill back up, then head to the green hill on the left to reveal a new area.

Lower the right side of the hill with the wall, then lower the hill with the wheel. Wait for the wheel to go to the right, then raise the right side of the hill with the wall, and the wheel will break the wall. Now use the hill in the background so you can reach the left orange hill. Drag the background hill down and make your way to the waterfall. Drop down both waterfalls, then walk to the right.

Lower the hill with the left wheel to break the left wall. Lower the hill with the right wheel, then raise the right side of the hill where it rests. Walk over to the rock on the far right, then lower the right side of the hill with the wheel, and it will end up to your left. Walk to the higher hill, then adjust the angles of the lower two hills so the wheel rolls left, then breaks the wall below. Now walk to the windmill. Click on the campfire for a memory to end the scene.

Balloon Ride

Walk to the hill behind you. Click on the right group of sheep, then raise the blue hill as far as it will go. Walk to the blue hill, then click on the left group of sheep. Now you can walk up and over the bridge in the background. Continue over the second bridge to the right, then climb onto the small metal platform. Now you need to get past the sheep:

  • Lower the orange hill and raise the white hill.
  • Click on the right group of sheep, then the left group of sheep.
  • Walk down to the left side of the white hill.
  • Click on the left group of sheep, then walk to the right of the white hill.

You can now head up to the waiting hot air balloon. Get inside, then click on the pilot. A memory will automatically start to end the scene.

Falls and Sheep

Walk over towards the edge of the waterfall. Click on the two groups of sheep (left, right, left, right), then drop down the waterfall so you are to the right of the sheep. Continue down the next waterfall. Walk to the rocks on the right. Lower the yellow hill so you can walk down onto the rocks between the 2 waterfalls. Now drop down the right waterfall.

Lower the orange hill so you can climb up it to the rocks on the right. Now raise the orange hill and walk across to the brown hill on the far left. Drop down the left side of the waterfall here to land on a square rocky ledge. Now drop down the next two waterfalls. A memory will automatically start to end the scene.

Underwater

Walk to the right to reveal more of the scene and make your way down over a series of hills, dragging the shipwrecks out of the way. Once a large green hill covers most of the screen, backtrack to the yellow hill in the background. Drag the green hill down so you can reach the blue hill. Drag the green hill down further so you can reach the waterfall. Drag the green hill down yet again so you can drop down the waterfall.

Drag down the green, blue and orange hills to the very bottom to reveal a locked gate. Bring the blue and green hills back up so you can reach the green hill. Lower the blue hill until you can reach the orange hill. Lower the green hill again and click on the padlock twice for a memory to end the scene.

Truck Ride

Walk onto the darker hill in the background. Raise the green hill, then walk on to it. Raise the darker hill, then walk on to it. Repeat this until you can reach the orange hill at the top right. In the next area, make your way up to the yellow ledge on the left. Head to the orange hill in the background, then gradually raise it and the green hill to reach the yellow ledge on the right. You will sit down on a bench for a while, then a truck will arrive. Climb into the truck.

Make your way over the roads in the truck. Several times, you will need to backtrack onto bridges to adjust the hills ahead. Once the view zooms in, click on the drink can for a memory to end the scene.

Final Destination

Climb up to the blue hill. Now drag the pink hill up, the yellow hill down, and the pink slope to the left up, so you can reach the left roof. Lower the hill at the top and walk to the far right. Drag the green slope down and the yellow slope up so you can reach the street above. Go up and sit down on the bench, then knock on the front door.
