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.
What a great way to spend a taco's worth of money. This game is seriously addicting, and evil. Tying health refreshes and ammo increases with alternate weapons makes you play around with your non favorite shots for the immediate survival boost (or play in your style and skip om healing ). I also love how you get 3 different upgrades at every level end, which makes each playthrough different even beyond the randomized maps.
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.
Immediately bought it for PC upon release, same for Android Brilliant game. Just goes to show that you can find a game with infinite replay value on your phone for very little money. Simple graphics and music that work incredibly well, especially on mobile. Controls take a bit to get used to, to be honest, but they're good considering it's a port. Can't recommend it more.
-fix for a certain enemy causing the game to crash
-fix for gamepad's directional input getting stuck (analogue stick disabled for now)
