Bought this on iOS and steam


This game is freaking addicting! Unlocking and playing all the different color pallets reminds me of playing 90's GB and GBC games. Favorite is the black and red scheme though. It just seems easier to see gems and such. Really fun game! I flat out hate a couple weapon types, but the first gun actually holds up well as long as you increase its capacity, so it's more of A personal observation than A complaint. I think it's easier to play on iOS, but I did play it for two months on iOS before getting the PC version. It just has A more fluid feel to it control-wise.

Excellent art, addicting gameplay.

Don't listen to the bad reviews

Totally worth the price. I haven't made it past the caverns yet but it's very challenging and very fun. Buy it... like now.

Great game to play while pooping

Reasonably good for the price


I'm not certain this game is deserving of the praise it's received. It's good value for the price, but I grew tired of it quickly. I enjoy the concept, the art style is nice, and the audio and music enhance the experience. If you want to enjoy about 8 hours of roguish gameplay for a reasonable price, pick this game up. Great? Good. Now here's what I don't like: • The game doesn't save its sate in the background. If you have to switch apps and Downwell is pushed out of memory by the OS, you lose your progress. This is inexcusable for a mobile game. • When I play a roguelite, I expect to have a drive to unlock things that could potentially help me finish the game (see Wayward Souls, Binding of Isaac, Rogue Legacy). I want that, "Oh, that's new. Wonder what it does?" experience. None of that in Downwell. There's a dozen upgrades and around 8 gun modules. You end up unlocking "styles" that barely make a difference on gameplay. Big whoop. • Because you have little control over your trajectory, a single mistake is *very* punishing. • The controls really should be at the top. • The controls sometimes don't work. I've absolutely had instances where I put my finger on the Go Left button, and the little dude doesn't go left. I look at my finger resting on the screen, look at my dude not going left, and just stop playing.



Do your self a favor and buy this game,awesome game,tons of fun,but you need a little skiil and fast reaction

So great...but crashes and frustrates me.


This game is incredibly addicting! So much fun to pass the time;'s unstable!! I will be playing and make it really far in the game but if I exit the app to check a text or answer a phone call, it gets overwhelmed and starts me all over. It shouldn't be that hard to come back to the app and start where I left off. What's the point of pausing the game if you can't come back to it. It's happened multiple times and because of this issue I am very tempted to never play again. Please fix!!!!

A Masterpiece


I read the reviews of Downwell before I bought it. And it didn't disappoint. It took months of playing before I finally beat it. And Hard Mode is still unconquered territory for me. Give this game a shot. It will not let you down.

Good game but lost progress


Yea its why i dont play anymore but good game still

Good BUT, a bit to HARD


Awesome BUT it's way to HARD! Your lucky if you can make it to the 4th level! PLEASE, PLEASE, have a level of difficulty to select from! And it would hands down be 5 STARS!
