I think it’s a generally inoffensive game with extremely charming presentation that’s badly suited for the ritualistic plonking down of oneself in front of a chunky desktop PC

Pathway throws in a lot of different gameplay elements, but it does everything well. The strategic combat is simple and fluid, and doesn't outstay its welcome. The vignette-like adventures are palatable and entertaining. And perhaps best of all, it's one of the best looking pixelized games in recent memory.

A worthwhile excursion, Pathway's unrealized potential hurts my heart.

Pathway brings together RPG tactics and roguelite progression with a unique Indiana Jones setting, but it doesn't have the depth to feel replayable.

Pathway can count on an outstanding art direction, but there are many issues preventing the players to fully enjoy the game.

Pathway is a workmanlike XCOM-lite whose breezy tone stumbles into some tired tropes.

While Pathway has a lot of interesting ideas, none of them are executed in a way that makes them compelling. Chucklefish nails the setting of the pulp era but not the feeling.

Crisp combat let down by boring enemies, repetitive missions and a disconnected story.

Pathway is a decent game, but it could be superb if a few more events were added into the randomised event tiles and the campaign storyline was strengthened. The combat has a solid strategy core to it, and the music and visuals are both brilliantly crafted. Variety is the spice of life and video games; Pathway just needs to add a bit more of that spice to make it stunning.
