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.
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.
This Is How You Make A Videogame I'm not a huge fan of mobile gaming and find most to be boring and unnecessarily time consuming. This is one of the exceptions. This is how you make a mobile game. An indie game. A fun game. A game that feels like a game. A Devolver Digital game. A roguelite. A hard game. An almost flawless game. It's addictive, fast, varied, has a good amount of content and some of the most refined mechanics you could imagine. This is one of those few games that your phone deserves to have. Pure digital gold.
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.
This game is amazing in every aspect. I love playing it on my phone. But, I found out that I could download this game on my chromebook, as the chromebook comes with the google playstore. The only problem is that, I can't really play it well, as the only way to jump is clicking the jump button with the mouse. No buttons on my keyboard allow me to jump and shoot. What is strange about this is that I can use the arrow keys to move left and right. So, why can't I jump using a button on the keyboard? Please make this game "compatible" with chromebooks!
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.
-fix for a certain enemy causing the game to crash
-fix for gamepad's directional input getting stuck (analogue stick disabled for now)
