Candleman is an experience rather than a common videogame. This interactive game is easy to recommend thanks to its wonderful style and the feedback that the player gets from the game.

Nice platforming game that may be too slow for some players, but makes almost everything right.

At times, Candleman: The Complete Journey can feel like a chore with its slightly erratic pacing and inconsistent tone. However, those that stick with it will find a surprisingly heartwarming story mixed with an innovative mechanic and some great environments.

A nearly perfect game for all to enjoy. New gamers will be enamored with the Little Candle that could, while longtime gamers may just remember why we love what we do all over again. An inspiring tale of self discovery that is revealed lovingly through gameplay and experimentation, and a small gem of a game you definitely don't want to miss.
