Review: Trek: Travel Around the World is a collection of mini-games of sorts only they are wrapped in 360 images giving the feeling of an ultra-real environment. Most of them are relaxing and most of them are fun. But when I say most I mean all 3 as that is all there is. I get that a lot of work has gone into making this game, but asking £6.19 for what is effectively 10-20 minutes of content is ridiculous. It might have been worth a look for a quid or less, but I certainly wouldn’t pay anything more than that. It’s a good idea for an experience I suppose, just vastly overpriced.
