The amazing downward, shoe-blasting roguelike Downwell is one of the best games on the App Store. It’s fast, frantic and a whole lot of fun. And right now you can pick it up for the low, low price of just 99c.
The game sees you plummeting down a well, using your shoes to blast away at enemies and keep yourself from falling into spikes and other obstacles. It’s tricky, but once it gets under your skin it’s hard to get away from.
The more you play, the deeper the game gets. And yes, that is kind of a pun, because it’s a game about falling down a well. Here’s a trailer.
Every time you fall down the well, the game is different, thanks to the procedurally generated nature of the experience. There are shops too, where you can buy new kit to try and make the battle easier.
