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.
Awesome, but needs one thing. This game is amazing! If you like frantic roguelikes with quick play times, this is the game for you. There is only one problem, the controls for the game are located at the bottom of the screen. There is an option to spread the movement buttons and the jump button apart but not to move these buttons up on the screen. If I could play the game with the controls located at the top of the screen it would be much better. Still worth buying for a cheap amazing game however!
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.
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.
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.
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)
