A scrolling platform game.

Looking at the screenshots, it may seem that Wind-up Knight is just an other scrolling game where you only have to tap to crouch or jump to avoid obstacles. A further analysis reveals that we're facing one of the most addictive, entertaining and amazing game of this year.

Gameplay is simple, with a learning curve that many games would like to have; and an easy yet highly appropriate control system that allows a devilish difficulty degree without having to understand any abstract concept beyond average comprehension. The first levels you can only jump to advance and collect keys to wind yourself up. If you haven't wound for a while, our little lovely clockwork knight will perish. Don't forget to pick gold coins to buy a sword to slice up cocks and other Avernus monsters; or to purchase better armor, helm or shield so your character don't die of a fool fall, mangled by a two ton stone on the head, hellishly impaled or awfully burnt down.

In every stage there's a hidden card. Once you have enough cards you'll unlock secret items or even levels. Graphics look like 3D but aren't as heavy-weighted, and look really good. Mind you, that there's a loading time before playing a level first time. Music prettily goes with the game, though it isn't its most innovative feature.

The best of this game is that it's absolutely free, no ads. In fact, if you were a real pro gamer you'd be able to play all 50 levels without spending a cent. Ordinary folk can play many levels, but will get stuck sooner or later. That's the true gimmick to attract players, and game's so fun that it's rather difficult to not get lured at some point of the game, helped by some hot one-time in-app promotions.

In short, excellent game. Worthy and recommendable if only for the fun intro and the hilarious tips between levels. If you add all aforementioned stuff, we could say it's not only one of the best games in its category, but also one of the best -if not the best- quality-price ratio game on market.

We might ask for some online leaderboard, or customizable character (may I play the Princess, can I, can I?), or shareable tips via Facebook. As you can see, minor details just regarding to extend game's life.

Developer's original description available here
Wind-up Knight by Robot Invader is a high-end, action-packed, 3D side-scrolling adventure game, and it's here to show you how games are supposed to be played.

Guide your Wind-up Knight through devilish levels--over 50 in all--to rescue the Princess from the clutches of the evil Black Knight. Run, jump, roll, and slash your way to victory. Not your typical runner game, Wind-up Knight is the type of challenging game you've been missing in your life.

Here are some bullet points all up in your grill:

• Over 50 soul-crushing levels in four unique worlds.
• Intense platforming action: double jumping, wall sliding, dive and roll, just to name a few cool moves.
• Achievements, mega-hard "knightmare" levels, and full controller support, including MOGA!
• New weapons and armor unlock as you play the game. Use the Armory to equip items and customize your character!
• Original soundtrack by Josh Whelchel.

Wind-up Knight has been designed from the ground up by Robot Invader to provide a console-level experience for your Android device. The Princess hasn't got all day, download it now!

Note: if you are mega awesome it is possible to unlock all the levels in this game for free. If you prefer to pay a few bucks to unlock levels, that's cool too. However, some purchases are not transferrable across devices, will be lost forever if you uninstall or wipe your phone, and are non-refundable.

    I uninstalled this app many months ago because it was a lame game - but then I came to discover that they charged me WITHOUT MY CONSENT. Do not download, do not install, do not play - or you WILL BE CHARGED, and they will REFUSE TO REFUND THE MONEY YOU DID NOT CONSENT TO. Edit: I'm not sure whether it was intentional fraud or an error, but regardless they charged me without my consent (and no one
