Fantastic game

Great game. My favorite action game/platformer by far on the iPhone.

Whoever said this game is uninspired and depressing must play way too many games or otherwise being approaching this from a "hardcore" or "critic" view that is overly jaded. This game is really fantastic, it actually has amazing gameplay that is balanced. The gear has an impact on your character visually and adds welcome variation to the gameplay without altering the basic challenge of each level. You can't be OP, and the difficulty seems to always be at the right spot. It is great value for what you pay. Its easy to pick up for a quick level or play for hours depending on what you feel like. It has kept me playing until almost 100% completion. The only thing is the story - I was like "what story?" I just played through all the levels and twice the game randomly "ended" after I killed some bosses and I was like wth happened. Who cares though, I didn't even want a story, I like to play this while I listen to podcasts or talk to someone on the phone for a long time. Besides that I agree with all the stuff the other people say about it. Just great!

Utterly epic. No doubt about it.

This game is fantastic! I love the graphics and the retro style, while still having polished and smooth animation! It's challenging, but somehow in a fantastic way! Just (SPOILER ALERT! BEEP BEEP! SPOILER ALERT!) I wish you could actually wield the goblin sword. Or, like, if you get the ending where you take the sword and rule the world, there could be, like, a battle inside the players head where it's his good side (green) vs his bad side (red). Then if you choose to play as the bad side and win then you could take the sword and get an ending where you take the sword and rule the world, or if you play as the good side and win then you can get the goblin sword and control its evil and use it in game, but not at its full potential so it doesn't take control of you. (SPOILER ALERT IS OVER. I REPEAT, NO MORE SPOILERS.) Also, can we have a place where we can completely customize our character. All in all though, if you have $2.00 you're willing to spend and you're considering buying Goblin Sword, the buy it. Please, buy it and you can kill your boredom like never before!

I have never been so blown away

Honestly, this game is one of the best and most fun games I have ever played on any system. I dare say, it could flat out compete with the the little guy with a mustache ;)...seriously. The retro style is amazing in its simplicity, yet simple it is NOT. It's the perfect amount of challenge to keep you focused for hours upon hours. Just don't give up! The fun is the challenge and you sometimes need to play a level 20X to get the patterns and timing down, but the payoff is huge! Lots of secrets to find to make replay value through the roof. The value I got out of this would be the equivalent of buying a brand new PS4 or XBox game for $1(but I promise, this will be better!). I play it on my iPad while my 7 year old plays it on his(I am 39) and we have so much fun together. Buy this game!

To the developers, PLEASE make a sequel, you guys rock and your logo should be on the next dollar bill(which I still have many of because your game price was so reasonable). THANK YOU.
