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!

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Downwell at the moment of this review (27.11.15) is a vertical runner with levels. That is you pass levels by dropping down a well, avoiding/killing enemies in the way and upgrading weapons. A simple and already seen concept, but Downwell executes it beautifully. There is a lot of attention to detail here (animations, effects, enemies). The only downside imho is the lack of (1) story and (2) no option to continue from where you lost. Although the game change theme every 3 levels (introducing new enemies and mechanics) it fails to present a story. As for the no-continue option, it really hurts itself, because you have to play all the way from scratch. After a while, it gets annoying and leaves you he impression that you paid for something that you might never see! I hope both of these are addressed in a future patch. But all in all, I highly recommend Downwell!
