About this game
Content Rating: Everyone10+
Downwell is a curious game about a young boy venturing down a well in search of untold treasures with only his Gunboots to protect him. Make your way further and further down into the darkness filled with nasty creatures and mysterious secrets to collect the spectacular red gems scattered about the rocks. Step into precariously placed shops and buy some helpful items or level up between levels to battle well-dwelling monsters and uncover hidden caves filled with riches and relics. No two trips down the well are ever the same!

While the random nature of Downwell can be frustrating at times, the depth of play styles and upgrades along with the interesting game format and low price makes it hard for me to not suggest Downwell to everyone. Downwell is an unique take on the shoot em' up and roguelike genres that is sure to keep you coming back.
Put simply, Downwell is a game you need on your iPhone. The gameplay is incredible, the effort that went into faithfully reproducing a retro feel is unmatched, and it serves as the perfect rebuttal to any idiot trying to make an argument that pixel art is "lazy." I've been playing it absolutely non-stop since it came out last night, and I can't recommend Downwell enough.
Overall, the game is fast-paced, challenging, and there is enough action to keep you entertained for a long time.
