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!
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.
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.
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)
