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!
Simple, Responsive Controls - Designed for mobile from the ground up, Downwell is presented with intuitive and elegant controls that allow for action-packed gameplay using just three buttons.
The Amazing Gunboots - The fashionable and lethal Gunboots allow players to unleash a torrent of firepower on the nasty creatures dwelling in the well and slow your decent with each shot.
Unique Weapons & Items - Get different weapons, shop for peculiar items and obtain powerful upgrades that all stack and affect the way you play!
A New Adventure Every Time - Each level in Downwell is procedurally generated, so no two trips down the well are ever the same providing a fresh new adventure each time!

Couldn't recommend more. If you're looking for something to play when you're out and about but still want a challenge, this is the perfect blend. It's not stressfully difficult, but it's not easy either. You can tell there was a lot of love put into this game.
If you have any idea of what made games great in the 90s or what makes a perfect pick up and play, then you'll appreciate this game as it is meant to be!
Downwell on Steam is in my Top 5 games of all-time. ?? It's a shame then that any time you switch away from this iPhone app and come back, you lose all of your progress. ??????? Your game will freeze up momentarily before quickly returning to the title screen. ??? Considering all of the text messages and emails that you get on your personal phone that require a response at a moment's notice, this is simply an unforgivable bug. ↘️⬇️↙️ ➡️?⬅️ ↗️⬆️↖️ I've had this game for months... at this point I don't ever expect a fix. ??? ??? ??? The developers simply threw this broken mess onto the App Store and walked away. ? ??? ??? This is such shameful behavior! ☝???♂️ *sigh* Unusable for now. ?? ??? Please fix this. ??
Welcome to 80s goodness
Amazing game. I played this first on the iPad, which is has better play control than the iPhone. I later starting playing on Steam, which is by far the best way to play. The simple graphics, classic sounds, and fluid gameplay all come together to make a brilliant vertical scrolling shooter. Way to go Ojiro Fumoto!
This is a fantastic game, and well worth the price. The controls are tight, the game always feels fresh, and the style is great. Random level generation means that every game is a different experience, so you can play it over and over without repetition. The progression is nice, though some more palates would be nice for a future update. It's definitely unforgiving, and a single mistap in hard mode can destroy a run. But all in all, it's a must-buy for whatever platform you have.
After all the time I've spent on this game, I feel like it's earned its 5 stars. It is an incredibly addictive, arcade-style game with brilliant mechanics, and it is well worth the payment!
This game is amazing. Looks great, plays smooth, and all-around fun & addicting gameplay that will make you say "Just one more...." This game is perfection except for one pesky bug. Sometimes, when a person calls me, Facetimes me or exit the app and go back to it, the sound turns off. I check settings and it says it's on. So, I keep switching in on and off, but sadly you need to close the game and open it back. I don't know what the problem is, I'm playing on a 1-month old, brand new iPhone 6S, so I don't know what's happening. Please solve this imperfection for an otherwise stellar game! You guys are amazing :)
Besides being a clone of a droqen game (albeit with a different feel), this game triggers a game center notification that can't be turned off. Deleted. I won't buy or download anymore games by this developer.
