Editors’ Notes

Like its lovable heroes, this sidescrolling brawler packs a heck of a punch. The combat’s fast and fierce, spread across huge levels littered with foes and hidden areas. It’ll be a while before we unlock all the secrets and upgrades, but with so much retro-style fun, we don’t mind a bit.

Amazing Retro Game

There’s a great deal of fun to be had with Dan the Man. While the premise is simple - fight opponents and clear them out to advance - the formula doesn’t get stale because of the variety of opponents as well as how difficult they get as the game goes on. That, and there’s a surprising amount of depth in the storyline that even tackles mature themes, yet it never loses its retro feel.

People might complain about the ads, but to be frank that’s what you should expect from a game that is free to download - the devs have to make money somehow if you’re not gonna pay. I mean, c’mon, you pay the price of a burger value meal to enjoy the majority of the game, and the DLC is reasonably price too. I’ve logged hours on the survival mode alone, and there are some console games I paid 60 bucks for that didn’t give nearly this amount of fun - nor for the same amount of time.

Ultimately, I feel people whining about the ads are just too cheap. You pay for what you get, and if you don’t pay then you need to support the devs another way. Ignore the whiners, and give this game a try if you want to play a good platformer to kill time on.

I lost half of my data...

Well first... let me start off by saying, that I used to love this game. Sure, it did have a lot of ads but it still didn’t bother me that much. I got “Dan the man” 4 years ago and worked hard to complete the adventure mode, story mode, and upgrade all the weapons and characters. It was pretty fun!

Now I’ll get to the main part: One day I deleted “Dan the man” only for a couple of days. I wasn’t worried about deleting the game because I had done it many times before and when I installed it again, it would restore all my previous data. But this time... something else happened. I got the app back, opened it up, and went to the character selection. That’s when I found out that my characters and weapons weren’t fully upgraded which I thought was strange because before I deleted the game all characters were at level 16 and all weapons were maxed out. After finding out that my characters weren’t level 16, I went to check adventure mode. When I went in to adventure mode... I WAS STILL IN THE BEE ADVENTURE INSTEAD OF THE LINCON ADVENTURE!!! It was very frustrating because I had spent 4 YEARS trying to upgrade everything, beat the game, and get all golden trophies in adventure mode. Halfbrick, if you are reading this review, please help me in anyway possible to regain my data.

Thank you for reading this review.
