A Ride Into the Mountains (iOS|Android) uses simple graphics to create a stunningly artistic world where you play as a young boy battling demons with his trusty bow. The touch controls for firing your bow take some practice, but it's worth it to master your skills to watch the story unfold. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done.
The storyline for A Ride Into the Mountains is simple, but the presentation is what makes the game special. A family lives in the shadow of a mountain that houses a magical relic that protects the surrounding land. When an evil force comes to take the relic, the young boy of the family, Zu, decides to ride his horse into the mountains and use his family's unique mounted archery skills to battle demons. The story plays out in short cut scenes between levels, with the boy remembering his family and wise words his father told him in the past that help is mission. Even with the simple graphics, the cut scenes with the boy and his horse while they rest by a fire in the woods are very well done, and keep you immersed in the story.
