2D Platformer 'Super Heavy Sword' $.99 -> Free






Free for the first time! Tested on iPad Air: Recommended! (Not recommended any more. It's gone freemium. January 2015.)

A solid platformer with plenty to do

Yes I rank this 5/5, but it is not without 0flaw. The flaws though are mainly the load times between the menus and area transitions. It's not enough to get any minus points though because the game itself (so far) is really fun. Think of a slower Super Mario World mixed with some Zelda and you'll be on the right track as what to expect. It's really amazing what such a small dev can do on iOS. The art, as past games by this dev, is fantastic. The music is catchy without being too annoying. But the amount of content is really where this shines. Levels take more than one pass through to get all the objectives and there are extra hidden things to find to bring you back even more. All this content for a buck and without any IAP makes this a winner even with the slow loading. (Played on 4S with 6.1.3)

I don't really like the first one, but let's try it.

I'm the same. The first wasn't terrible, but it was boring and also very glitchy ... it kept shutting down on me. However, no reason not to try the sequel for free.

On the Touch 4 it's very glitchy and finally crashed shortly into it.

Bought this at launch. The wall climbing mechanic eludes me.

Monster Robots are fun to play with.

Tried it out and it's really floaty... I love the graphic similarities to some of the 2D Mario games though. Has customizable button placement which is good.

Are the achievements glitched for anyone else? They show up during the game but my Game Center points aren't unlocking.
