“Retro” isn’t even the word to describe this year’s surprise mobile hit. With sub-8-bit, black-and-white graphics (and a liberal splash of red), Downwell lives up to its name, tossing players down a bottomless pit. As you fall, your gun-boots are the only way to slow yourself down. Blasting enemies, shattering walls, and trying not to splat on the rapidly rising ledges, your sole purpose is to keep airborne. Levels are procedurally generated with new enemy and item placement each time, so every descent is its own fast-paced, break-neck battle against gravity.
