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!

Really quick, on screen controls are good! Good sized left and right buttons and a jump/gun button. Very intuitive and responsive. Very frantic gameplay. Absolutely fun. Going back to it. No IAP and no ads.

Definitely a winner!

Agreed! That sums it up pretty well. Really retro visuals with a very limited color palette give this a really unique look. The game plays really great as well! Playing on iPhone 6 and it's a tight squeeze on the controls, but they work very well. May be more comfortable on an iPad. Five stars from me.

I've unlocked the green color palette. I still prefer the original. I am really loving the retro look and feel of this game. There's so much attention to detail. I've made it to the end of 1-2 and died right where I could see the damn end hehe!
