Default Darkness (by Ovine by Design) [Universal]




Saw this on another forum.

Looks a great retro style C64 'Sabre Wulf' ish type of game. Just bought it

Controls are decent, nice joystick bottom left with a fire button bottom right. Just had a quick go, the main gameplay screen is a bit smaller with a nice border around it.

Yeah its a few dollars but seriously, iOS games are so cheap, devs need to make some money ! When i was 14 years old you had most games at $10 ! The cheap cheap ones for a few dollars were a bit hit/miss.

Anyway happy to support this dev, looking forward to exploring more. Reminds me of a Sabre Wulf/Atic Atac type of game, exploring different screens, enemies appearing from nowhere etc. Retro heaven !

Ha ha obviously not a fan of 8 bit 80's style games ! The graphics arent 'poor' they are just similar to an 80's C64 style game

Granted retro style graphics arent for everyone, i'm sure kids in 20 years time will mock us for liking GTA V etc or laugh at Angry Bird games. The playability is good and thats one major reason why i still play Space Invaders, Pacman, Sonic, 80's retro games, graphics may look dated but the gameplays great

The screenshots are downsized and jpg compression seems to be heavy. Its much better when you see on itunes.
