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!

Just a great game. Definitely worth 3$

Insanely simple, yet after having this game for years I have never gotten tired of playing. I have still not beaten it. Please, do yourself a favor and get this game.

The single best iPhone game

So when I watched Parker plays on Disney xd, I saw him play Downwell on p.c and I thought it looked awesome. So when I see that it's on the AppStore I am blown away. I get it as soon as I see it and I am so impressed.

Hotline Miami meets terminal velocity

When I get many games, they start out endearingly basic and some bloom into monstrously entertaining games. When I got Downwell I thought this was going to be a quickly boring jaunt into thumb-busting 8-bit territory. While not a strategy-rewarding life-devourer like Imbroglio, this is a fun time-waster with a novel way of making a fall down a hole appealing to roguelife players - players of those games where repeated deaths lead to better starting options. If you are looking for a soul-altering game, $2.99 is a bit of a question mark, but otherwise a fantastic job. Not recommended for slow types, but DW did help me dust my game thumbs off and get away from turn-based play for a bit. Just one addendum: while this is procedurally generated, it is an action game above all. Look up Bump & Jump.

Amazing game but

This game is amazing but if they could I would add a tilt mode

Crashes upon exit

Great game, infuriatingly hard for me. If I get a notification and switch out, the game crashes and I have to force quit it. Ios 10 Iphone SE 64gb.

Overall fantastic game

First things first, the reason this isn't a five star: the game has really tight controls, but no controller support, as far as I can find. If this gets fixed, I'll be extremely happy. As it is right now, this is one of the best games on the store. Simple design, easy to pick up, very skill based, at least as far as level 2 as I haven't ever gotten further than that, and again, tight controls. I'd highly recommend it.

The Real Old-School Game

Now, you might think this would be a waste of money, but no. If you've dreamed about playing something retro-style, wish granted. Because with all the 8-bit graphics, the changing palettes, etc. are the reasons why you should get this for miners and fighters alike. Get this game.

The best

Well worth the time and money it's the best 2D game in the world!!!!!! #undertaleremix #savetheturtles


Simple, yet surprisingly fun game. Adding some "continues" would be nice though. No real complaints about this game.
