One of the best 2d platform arcade games. Good gameplay and my 4 yrs nephew loves playing this game too. Love the fact that it pairs with my 8bitdo bluetooth gamepad. Pls make more games with support for bluetooth gamepad as I love retro style more than swipe and touch.
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 😎
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.
It's a great game overall. There are a few changes I would make but solid. The flying creatures in level 4 need to be nerfed they have too much health. I believe that there needs to be a mechanic in the game that allows you to roll or a blocking mechanic either would work.
Was missing good platformers until i played Xolan. Learning curve is very smooth. Good Bluetooth controller support. Smooth gameplay. Can be challenging in the later levels.
