I don't write mobile reviews often, but after clearing the first forest stage and defeating the boss Beethor I had to give this game 5 stars. As far as platformers go this is perfect. If you miss the Gameboy day platformers this will have a special place in your heart if you're willing to try it. And as far as advertisementa go they are skippable after 3 seconds, and they don't intrude into the game, only after you die a few times! And you will die 😎
Good game. Refreshing to find a game that actually lets you control it. And no combos, they just ruin gameplay. I like it, well done. It does kindof make me want to play terraria though,although i grew up on wonderboy. Perhaps mining would be a good addition to a sequel? This combat is better than terreria though
This game is awesome! They're aren't many high quality retro side-scrollers in the Play Store, but this is one of them. The controls are tight and responsive, the 8 bit graphics are utilized well and look great, and the gameplay is challenging, but never feels punishing. I only wish the upgrade system was a more prominent element. Even so, it is still, without a doubt, worth 5 stars. I hope to see more games like this, or even a sequel to Sword of Xolan from this developer.
Ok, so I probably would've given a better review if I had lower expectations. Recently I have been playing a different action platformer called Dan the man. It is probably the best mobile game on the market,and is 20 times better than this. The plot is better, the graphics are better, the controls are better, and even the- well, ya know what? Everything is better. Get it.(I promise that this review is not sponsored, its just personal opinion.) I thought it would be fun to try out a different platformer, but I was wrong.
I gave this game a five star rating. For a retro styled game it is one of the best I have played in a long time. The controls are simple but work well and make for flawless game play. The monsters each have unique attacks and the boss levels are fun. You get to play the game for free with ad's but I opted to pay the 99 cents to support the developers, have no ad's and the game is completely with it.
Absolutely loved this game! From the gameplay to the graphics to the concept, been craving for similar games from when i used to play when I was younger heh. Only issue is that I collected all the cards and found all villagers and treasure chests and it wasnt reflected at all in my achievements :-( but nonetheless, it was a super playthrough heh
