– Devolver Digital (@devolv erdigital) 26 December 2018  Here is the full description of the game provided by the publisher:
Downwell is a strange game about a young man who seeks out untold treasures with just daring his gunboots for protection. Go on and on into the darkness, filled with evil creatures and mysterious secrets, to collect the spectacular red gems scattered over the rocks. Step into precariously placed shops and buy useful items or climb between levels to fight well-behaved monsters and discover hidden caves filled with wealth and relics. No two trips in the fountain are always the same!
- The Amazing Gunboots – The fashionable and deadly gunboots allow players to unleash a stream of firepower on the evil creatures in the well and slow down the descent with each shot.
- Unique Weapons and Items – Get a variety of weapons, buy special items, and get powerful upgrades that all stack up and affect your way of playing!
- A new adventure every time – Each level in Downwell is generated processively so that no two run down Well, it's always the same thing, each time offering a new new adventure!
We thought that the digital release of Downwell would be announced sometime, considering it will soon get a physical version.
The game is a good arcade-style fun with chiptunes and entertaining visuals. Also, you should be able to play it vertically even though we are still waiting for confirmation of this feature.
