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!

Editors’ Choice

A well is usually one of the last things we’d want to fall into, but this retro-style shooter has us jumping in again and again. It’s a rush descending from rock to rock, blasting creepy creatures with your gunboots while nabbing crimson gems. Roguelike difficulty means you’re in for a challenge, but superb controls and nifty upgrades (including a jetpack, a drone and laser sights) give you all the help you’ll need. And with randomly generated levels, each journey feels as fresh and exciting as the last.

Excellent game, but has an issue

I love this game! I've played it for ages now, its great fun and I can't imagine I'll stop playing any time soon. However, recently I've started experiencing a really annoying problem. On many occasions, if I either leave the app quickly to do something else or turn my phone off for a minute, the game will crash when I come back to it and I'll lose everything I've just been doing. It's terrible, especially if I'm in the middle of a great run! Can the devs please take a look at this and see if there's a solution? Thanks for your time. Great game!

Undoubtedly deserves 5 stars

I was skeptic at first before I bought the game, but now that I have, I can say that it is truly worth the 5 stars and 5 dollars. Amazing detail with a great soundtrack. Plus what's more is your own music can play as the BGM just as easily. As somebody who loves customisation, I thought it was great how there are different pallets thrown into the mix. All in all an amazing game, definitely lives up to the perfect ratings
