Well Worth $3 This game is addictive and tons of fun, with old-school graphics and nice touch-screen controls that haven't given me any problems at all. The main the to be aware of going in is that this game is far from easy, so if you like a good challenge then you will keep coming back, but if not you may want to hesitate before buying. My only complaint as of now is the lack of a back, or exit, button, so you have to force-close the game manually. Small gripe, but worth mentioning. All in all, it's well worth it.
Just as fantastic on mobile as on PC Because it can be played in pretty short bursts, Downwell is a great game for mobile, and it's different every time, so it doesn't get boring quickly. Great gameplay, and surprisingly good controls for a platform-y mobile game played on a touchscreen. My one complaint is that the controls/buttons can't be moved up and down the screen. They're a little low for my taste, but if I could move them a little higher to where my thumbs naturally rest, Downwell would be a perfect mobile game imo.
Perfect Very challenging, but take the time to develop your skill and this game will reward you in kind. It's old-school hard, and old-school fun. Keeps me coming back. I play every day, a bit at a time. $3 might seem like a lot, but the devs deserve it for making such a great game. Instant classic for my mobile library (which also includes games like Organ Trail and Out There). Play them forever and never get tired of them kind of games. This is one of those.
And it is so perfect for mobile... It's also the most unique mash up of genres I've ever played.. And they all work great together. Only thing is the graphic style is a little too retro for me. But it doesn't take away from the game much. Solid 4 stars.
Mobile Gaming Perfection I normally don't care for mobile games and never spend full price on them but Downwell is more than deserving of the three dollar price tag. It's unbelievably fun and the controlls are the best I have ever encountered on a mobile game. Everything about Downwell is perfect from the gameplay to the visuals to the music and sound to the unlockable palettes. This is a must play for anyone that feels stuck in a mobile gaming rut.
Has great potential.. ..to be the best retro game ever! It is quite boring at first coz we've seen a lot games like this before, but as you progress it makes you want to play more! Game is smooth, stylish palettes, challenging and action-packed.. I just wish the controls to be movable, the jump can be high or low, and more stomp (melee) and gun (ranged) upgrades to come.. Then this will be the best retro game ever.
-fix for a certain enemy causing the game to crash
-fix for gamepad's directional input getting stuck (analogue stick disabled for now)
