A cute little addictive pick n play…
Overview: Downbound is a really cute little game in which you have a ball shaped character, who really wants to go down. Use motion controls and tap controls to move your character through a maze, avoiding enemies, collecting powerups, collecting stars, unlocking new levels and unlocking 11 new characters!
Positives: Downbound is a really great game and really fits well into the category of Pick n Play. It has 1 planet, 3 more coming soon, each with 16 amazing fun filled worlds, and each world with four challenging, and fun levels! As a bonus, there is also an endless mode, which can be unlocked by playing through level 1, so you can always try and make a better score! Also, so it doesnt get boring, the devs behind Downbound have spiced their amazing game up with 11 really cute unlockable characters, with more ‘Coming Soon’ in future updates. Each character also has its own name and you can also checkout the stats associated with it, including deaths, jumps, etc. This game is full to the brim with awesomeness! The controls are really simple, tilt your iDevice to move your character right and left and tap the screen to jump. There are also a few enemies that slow you down, powerups, such as one that makes you small etc., springs and lots more! You have to go down till the end of the level before the black clouds get you. The game supports retina display and has cute graphics.
Negatives: Nothing :)
Conclusion: Downbound is a great game to play for all ages, whether you have a few minutes, or more. It would be great if it had multiplayer, but its graphics, gameplay and controls are amazing. Also, the price is quite reasonable at $0.99. This is a must have for casual gamers
It deserves a rating of 4/5
