If not games in HD, mobile gamers look for new retro-themed ones that will bring them back to their childhood days. Admit it, games like Downwell give you that nostalgic feeling of your early gaming days–time of the Atari’s, Game & Watch, NES, and whatever obsolete gaming devices you had before. Or maybe you’re a struggling developer who wants to make it big in the mobile industry–this game will inspire you to make your own because really, you don’t need a lot of colors. Black, white, and red will do.
Downwell is an action platformer game that stars a young boy going down a well to look for treasures. Your only protection are the Gunboots. Along the way, you need to gather the red gems you see. Inside each level, there are secret items you can buy to be more powerful or use to be able to move quickly to another level. You’ll be facing well-dwelling monsters here but don’t worry, you can win every battle with the lethal Gunboots to fire off against the enemies.
Inside the well are creatures going after you as you go down. Get all the upgrades, items, and weapons you can use to improve your gameplay. Controls are intuitive and responsive so you won’t have a hard time mastering the game. All you need are three buttons to control the character so it’s really not that difficult.
Downwell offers new adventure level each time so no two gameplays are alike. Every level is procedurally generated so gameplay is always unique. Available for $2.99.
