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.
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 😎
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 never expected a game for Android to be so old school and challenging at the same time. It took me back to the NES games era, some levels were almost impossible but with the right timing and strategy I could beat them. Simple and awesome, keep up the good work guys.
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
A cool retro game with a classic (and somewhat cliched, but nevertheless very fun) 3-part world. Challenging and very fun. Great graphics. The feel of the game makes you want to keep trying despite being stuck on that one level you can't beat.
Above the ivory snow lies a sleepy mountain village, brimming with adventure.
