Downwell is going to take over my life

One run at a time

I was on board with Downwell (PC, iOS, Android) as soon as I saw this gif.

It’s a game about descending a narrow well as a little guy with guns on his boots. Gun boots! Shooting slows your descent and, crucially, destroys enemies and blocks impeding your progress. But the boots can only hold so much ammo, and to reload, you’ll need to land on solid ground.

I’m now watching that gif again. I’ve become entranced.

This video goes more in depth. If the music sounds familiar, that’s probably because it’s by Eirik Suhrke (Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing, Spelunky). He’s right at home here.

Downwell is “coming soon,” and I for one hope the wait isn’t much longer.
