In Faraway you're an adventurer exploring the ruins of ancient temples full of challenges and mysterious puzzles.

You're walking in footsteps of your father. He was a collector of unusual artifacts who went missing 10 years ago. Your journey will take you from deserts and oasis to old crumbling ruins of a mysterious civilization. They had constructed devices and puzzles to see if you're worthy of knowing their secrets. Observe the environment, collect items, manipulate devices and solve perplexing puzzles to escape temple labyrinths.

Explore 18 grand temples packed with puzzles.

Easy to navigate 3D world which holds more secrets than it appears on the surface.

Collect pages from your missing dad's diary to find out what happened to your family.

You get to try the game before you buy. First 9 levels are available free of charge!

Feels like Skyrim honestly. Really fun.
Does not support iPad landscape view
llhgrey on 5/21/2018
Yes, there are people who play games on their iPads. It is always disappointing to download games that are locked in portrait mode.
Level 13
damonrace on 5/2/2018
Was fine and was a great game until level 13. When I go down the elevator it doesn’t allow you to move into the next room. Even using the hint to just shows that you need to move to the next room but it will not allow me to do it
Help! Level 13 stopped working
Geophany on 4/27/2018
Really enjoying the game but Level 13 stopped working. I can move around, but can’t interact with any puzzles. I restarted the ENTIRE game and now level 8 is glitching. What to do?? I’d like to finish the game I paid for! Developers have not responded to queries on multiple media. Others have the same problems. Please step in, developers! Allow level restart or at least skipping!!
Glitch on level 9
sleeplessny on 4/19/2018
Enjoying the game so far. I’m really wanting a level reset though. There should be a way to restart a level from the beginning without having to restart the whole game. PLUS, there seems to be a glitch on level 9. The area where you’re supposed to raise and lower the by pulling the levers....well I pull the levers and things shake, but nothing moves. This is making it impossible to progress.
Great game to bad you pay?
CityNinjaGirl11 on 4/12/2018
I started playing just to find out you have to pay to play on. It’s to bad that it isn’t a free game. I don’t mind ads, I’ll play anyway even if the same ad is played over and over. So sad!
Worth it
ChooseJesus on 4/9/2018
The cover picture and representative pics made me almost not download it. I thought it would be too easy or so stupidly hard you'd never figure it out. I am pleased that I did dl it...the levels are easy at 1st, but get progressively harder. It'll def make you think...without wanting to tear your hair out. I purchased the whole game and felt it was $ well spent😀

have tried on 3 different devices and level 6 will not let you move to the first puzzle.
Ms.kristik on 3/28/2018
I find there were a decent amount of open ends. I love brain puzzles like this and I can’t do it. I was stuck on a level for over a week! ☹️ I was happy when I finished it, but it made me spend less time with my family.
Clever, logical, not contrived
Frigamortis on 3/18/2018
Fun, does not stretch the limits of patience by have illogical puzzles that you have to be the game designer to figure out.
Needs a motion sickness warning (no, seriously)
Earth Versus Soup on 3/18/2018
This game caused something I’ve never experienced from a game before: motion sickness. The especially weird thing is I’m not particularly prone to motion sickness in any way, yet I had to delete the game after the first four levels (about ten minutes of playtime) because I felt like I was going to throw up. The animations for going up and down stairs and ladders and going backwards through doorways trigger this, I think the speed of the animation is what causes it. So beware: even if you have never experienced motion sickness from a game or movie before, this game may be the one that does it to you. Aside from that, it’s a bit of a shrug of a game, but that’s also probably just because I barely got to play it before I had to tap out.
Shopgerl50 on 3/12/2018
Bad graphics Bad sound Bad layouts Snapbreak has done MUCH better games, but Faraway 1 &2 plus Escape Logan Estate are horrible
Great until the ending
puzzleme23 on 3/12/2018
I loved this game until I reached the very end and pulled a lever to get my piece (I even checked with the hints to see if I did it wrong) and m I just didn’t get my lice do to a glitch... oh well I would have given it a higher rating!
Ih8perfume on 3/11/2018
Relaxing graphics, trial& error puzzles. Very nice for a free game of this kind
Very nice!
_jbrown on 3/5/2018
Enjoyable puzzle that is not too difficult but will have one SMH a few times. It’s relaxing with no stressful time limits while being unique. The developers have the next puzzle in this series out and I’m buying it. Fun and affordable and highly recommended!
Ajsnsn on 2/27/2018
Best music so far in all games i played!!... and beleve me i played a lot games of escape or puzzles. Is like coldplay remix chillout! But too easy to finish! Good job guys Btw! Can i download the soundtracks in this game? Any album or site to download?
Vanny04girl on 2/11/2018
I loved this game. I just finished with the final level which was 18. I thought it had more levels all this time because it shows another page but it ended up being the credits page so it ended way to short. I have a few notes I still need to find but over all it was a well laid out and had beautiful graphics. The puzzles were not overly complicated and don’t use the hint button unless you are really stuck because it explains how to solve. I was not a fan of the controls. There were areas that I would try to tap on something and it would send me up a ladder I didn’t want to use. You can’t just tap back down you have to wait for it to get up the ladder. It would be nice if you could cancel or redirect mid-move. After paying the unlock fee of 2.99 I believe I definitely thought there would be more levels. I highly recommend the game though and I just downloaded jungle and can’t wait to play it after I finish finding all those well hidden notes.
Fun for kicks but a couple of issues
The Phifers on 1/31/2018
An overall decent game, but the puzzles are a little simplistic. More importantly, there are a couple of glitches I found. Both are in 8. One was with a door on the right side that didn’t show open, but I can walk right thru it. The big one was at the top with the reflecting laser. I made the shard, raised the laser and the shard isn’t reflecting. Hope it gets fixed soon...
Level 6
Spaceman911 on 12/29/2017
I can’t get level 6 to work. Anyone know what to do?
Level 6 NOT working
Jeff8x7 on 12/21/2017
Level 6 is absolutely not working. I looked at the cheat video and found I did figure it out but NOTHING happens when I touch the item (or anything else). I've restarted my phone several times. And I've checked for an update over and over for weeks. Nothing!!
RubiGold on 12/20/2017
조금 질리지만 갈수록 더 어려워진다면 해볼만하다.
tylerpaulson123 on 12/19/2017
I’m really enjoying this fun puzzle adventure. Thanks.
Fluteresa on 12/10/2017
Level 6 does nothing—frozen.
Issue on level 9
Silly sally went to the park on 12/4/2017
Love the game so far but the levers that move the buttons up and down seems to have glitched and don’t move anything.
Tricky tricky tricky
Babybourda on 12/3/2017
But worth it.!!!!!!!
Keeps crashing
idoc305 on 12/2/2017
Keeps crashing at beginning of puzzle 6. Even after shutting iPad2 running iOS 9 crashes when starting to use the podium in front of wall? Any suggestions?
Glitchy and bugs
Phillie162 on 12/1/2017
Stuck at the end of level 8. The light beam is not reflecting off from the other side. It is supposed to but unfortunately there is no help or email function to notify developers. I feel sorry for those who wasted their money on a game where they will not be able to advance due to fault of the developers
Glass half full
Machodingo on 11/30/2017
I truly wish I could give 2.5 stars, because I loved the game, at least the half of it I played. I understand people need to make a living, and supporting the developers you appreciate is vital, but making payment the only option to unlock the full game is frustrating.

SDRanger on 11/27/2017
I've played a couple of thousand Escape-Puzzle-Adventure games over the past 12 years (seriously!) and this would easily land in my Top-40 List of this genre. The graphics and ambients are fantastic and make this game a totally immersive experience. The navigation of the environment is absolutely unique yet easy to pick up and learn. The countless puzzles are either very very original or they are classics brilliantly repackaged to make them enjoyable once again. The HINT SYSTEM is fantastic and only shows you the exact puzzle that you are on...(not 3 minutes of video you have to sit through for puzzles you've already completed.) I could have played this game for dozens of more levels and I truly hope that happens. My ONLY 2 complaints are (1) the pointless, irrelevant notes that you never find all of.....and (2) that the fresh experience of exploring this game is over for me...guess I'll wipe it from my iPad and start over.🤔 I did take my time with this and looked at everything closely and it kept me entertained for hours. For all of you complainers out there: if you're looking for the perfect Escape-Puzzle-Adventure game, you're never going to find it. This one does a great job of coming pretty darn close though! It's irritating to see people picking apart a great game when it's above and beyond the vast sea of DUDS out there, isn't it? I have no regrets in paying for his game...it always kept me entertained, never irritated me, it constantly turned in new directions...and most importantly the puzzles were interesting, were all logical, and they weren't impossible. (And again, when I DID get kinda stuck, there was an instant help system to give me a quick nudge.) I absolutely don't feel "burned" by this purchase...and I definitely don't have money to burn!
Really Nice
Yuko53 on 11/26/2017
Love this straight up adventure. Just the right amount of challenge. Very stylized graphics, but pleasing. The only weak spot is the ending, and endings are always hard. If you play the first few levels and like them, then buy the rest. A lot of work in this; the devs deserve some support.
Different and fun
Honey I'm home on 11/24/2017
Wonderful for a simple graphic game
Great game!
Jojeeh on 10/22/2017
Hope to play more of your games in the future. 👍
Very exciting
For Every Thespian on 10/19/2017
I love this game.. very addicting
Nice game, but
Craig.Stew on 9/25/2017
Challenges become redundant, but ok that helps you think how to solve them, but a few have no real logic between solution and the quest of getting all 3 letters. Get all 3 letters in first 9 levels and you still pay full price to get to level 18. Wrong! Time to delete. Not paying full price for something I work for. Finding the 3rd letter after the 3rd becomes difficult and no discount for have to watch all those 30sec ads.
Nicely done
Stratedox on 9/23/2017
I love the way this puzzle game progresses. Beautiful atmosphere and original puzzles, I loved it!
18liz__ on 9/18/2017
Beautiful game with amazing graphics! Kudos to the creators, you should feel proud.
Faraway escape
myseed4you on 9/13/2017
This game IS AWSOME. Finally an Escape game with Imagination. Didn't buy as I didn't have money. Still loved this game.
Fun puzzles
PleasePickName on 9/13/2017
Nice bite sized levels too, perfect for commuting.
ElanMcMac on 9/3/2017

Great game
Neila 54 on 8/28/2017
Really enjoyed playing this game.
Great game

Very fun indeed.
patericka on 8/22/2017

Trynila on 8/20/2017
Nicely challenging, beautiful graphics, and engaging puzzles! Wonderful to play even on a small screen!
A Beautiful, Engaging Quest and an Excellent Value
Colney Hatch on 8/17/2017
People complain about the $2.99 unlock fee, but this app is well worth it. A flat fee is far superior to a subscription or having to buy tokens/gems/coins to keep playing. For the cost of a coffee, the game offers a beautiful experience and some fun puzzles. It's not too hard and not too obvious. It doesn't try to be all things to all people. It's a world unto itself and you can explore it at your own pace -- slowly and with hints if you're a beginner, or blazing fast if you don't do anything but explore fantasy worlds. Some free levels to see if you like it. Definitely worth the fee if you're entertained. If you find it "too elementary," move on, genius.
Myst on my phone!
Mori Ben'Aiki on 8/16/2017
I love how much this reminds me of Myst. The semi mysterious music and simple sound effects add to that. My only complaint is that some of the scenes have important items right on the edge the the phone screen, so it's easy to miss them.
Hours of fun
Hdcphx on 8/12/2017
A great puzzler with challenging levels for all ages!
Great game!
IwantChubbyBunny on 8/10/2017
Over all this is a very beautiful and great game. The puzzels weren't too challenging. Usually I give up on puzzle games because they are just way too difficult, but this game is at just the right challenge level. I did get stuck a few times but luckily, I could just watch a hint, which is a pretty nice feature. I think it is worth the full purchase because it is just a nice way to relax but also work your brain. It does however (spoiler) have a very disappointing ending. It doesn't really give out much of an ending besides "the end." Other than that, I think it is a great and beautiful game and I do not regret purchasing it.
chersonperson on 8/5/2017
On level 9 when you walk through the first door and turn right you are approached by 3 symbols. You put on the correct symbols and are brought to a cutaway of the door sliding open. When you come back from the cutaway the door is closed again and you can't move the symbols anymore. Great game otherwise, just can't move forward.
Challenging game but need more levels
Bored waiting for game on 7/22/2017
Excellent game but 18 levels (paid version) isn't enough. More levels please!!! Well worth the cost though.
