Iv had this app for a long time now, never ceases to amaze me
Simply put, this ode to classic gaming has it all. The introduction leaves an enticing feeling as you decide to leave the comfort of your bed for an adventure down a challenging and exciting well hole. As far as iPhone controls go, this game has a smooth feel with a three button layout. The animations of the sprites are cute and well thought out giving way to the simple color palette. Overall a complete experience for handheld gaming and worth your cash. I look to developers to take something from this game in terms of style and simplicity.
This game is awesome! Every so often, Devolver publishes real gems. The low price justifies the fact that a touch screen is not optimal for this game.
Pros: Addictive gameplay Clean retro aesthetic Cons: Occasional performance bugs on up to date iOS
All told, I think this is the best mobile game I've played. It's definitely a twitchy action title, but it has a load of depth that reveals itself to you as you play and study it. Graphics and sound are perfect, lovely music, unbelievably good controls for mobile, very challenging but ultimately conquerable. Reminds me a bit of Spelunky, though it is not as involved as that, and definitely more arcadey. Strongest recommendation.
I play this game so much every day it never gets old from the power ups to the monsters. It is the best retro game EVER I mean it.
