Evil force invaded the relic in the mountain. Darkness began to spread. A brave young man, equipped with his family’s unique mounted archery skills, rides into the mountains to battle against the mysterious demons.



"It’s downright elegant in its presentation and gameplay. Don’t miss this one." ~ Jim Squires (Gamezebo) - (5 / 5)

"This isn't a novelistic game. It's poetic. It doesn't say much, but it says it with quiet elegance." ~ David Clarke (Touch Arcade) - (4.5 / 5)

"A Ride Into the Mountains overcomes a few small rough spots to offer a challenging, intriguing, evocative, and memorable adventure of horseback archery with a stellar minimalist aesthetic." ~ Richard Moss (MacLife) - (4.5 / 5)

"As understated as just about every aspect of A Ride into the Mountains might be, everything comes together to craft a truly impressive experience." ~ Rob Rich (148Apps) - (4 / 5)

"'A Ride into the Mountains' is a beautiful, challenging adventure" ~ Andrew Webster (The Verge)

"Lovely visuals, a great soundtrack, and fun controls all go to pulling you into the story A Ride into the Mountains wants to tell you." ~ Hamza Aziz (Destructoid)

"A Ride into the Mountains is fairly unique and it is hard to compare it to other games in the genre." ~ Lory Gil (iDownloadBlog)

"Beautiful music, breathtaking scenery, a touching story, and some boss battles that are surprisingly intricate." ~ John Bardinelli (JayIsGames)

"A Ride into the Mountains is a picturesque, archery-based, epic adventure" ~ John Polson (IndieGames.com)

"There are no jaw-dropping graphics and not a single polygon to be found, but the washed-out look of the ultra-basic visuals fits the zen-minded nature of the game perfectly." ~ Mike Wehner (TUAW)

Great game. Loved it. Only reason i put 4stars was because the game was way too short, and wanted to keep playing. But overall its a great game.

Impressive but Very fluid .. neat 'old-school' import movie/ samurai Jack look. However I need a fix- my device is not multi touch; any way to put a toggle in so I can use volume +/- for focus and any other such functions plz?

Good but not perfect I don't particularly care for intentionally-pixellated graphics but these are nicely done and the game has great atmosphere. Where this game falls down a bit is on the controls. Shooting your bow is simple enough with good multi-touch controls, but controlling your horse is done by tilting your device. This is at times maddeningly sloppy and sluggish or even sometimes impossible, as the games to recalibrate whenever you "die" and if you're already tilted when it does this, the controls just don't work. The game also sometimes seems to behave strangely, with you or the various enemies disappearing, and requiring a stop and restart of the game to restore it to working order. Despite these issues I completed the game and enjoyed it. Worth the money.
