Heavy Sword is a side-scrolling platformer inspired by the classics of the genre
If you like classic Super Mario games, you'd probably enjoy Heavy Sword. Actually, there are lot of similarities. First, the storyline: a group of orks and goblins have kidnapped the Princess of the fantastic realm your hero lives in. He'll take the sword and start a journey to bring her back. Thus, despite neither the theme nor the main character are the same (swords and swells instead of plumbing and mushrooms) both graphics are gameplay reminds the classic adventures of our favorite plumber.
Rescuing the princess won't be an easy task: you'll have to jump over platforms, collect coins and power-ups and kill the enemies on the way, level after level (there are over 20 levels to beat, including some bonus). You know it works, right?
Heavy Sword is set in an anachronistic fantastic world: it brings together medieval elements (swords, castles, orks) with robots and automatic weapons. Its polished 8-bit graphics remind old good days with your NES. The only catch worth to mention: controls. It tries to emulate basic video console buttons (two arrows for going forward/backward, jump and attack button). However, that makes it difficult to control, especially on tablets.
Besides, another good platformer you can add to your list.
"HEAVY – sword is a good-looking game with plenty of quirky sprites and detailed backgrounds. However it’s the exploratory nature of the levels and the ability to acquire an unnaturally gigantic sword that steal the show." -148Apps
"Aside from the classic gameplay and tight controls, the game does look gorgeous in its pixel vision, with particle and lighting effects adding a modern edge to the throwback graphics"

Nice sidescroller arcade but don't expect more than 1-2 minutes of gameplay since the app crashes constantly. Developer doesn't list contact info on neither the play store nor their own website so don't expect to go through them to get a refund.
Crashes constantly on nexus 4 and 7 2013. Refund please.
I like the feel of the game. Had a nice Mario feel, but with swords instead of fireballs. I have noticed that I've had to complete levels multiple time after already collecting all the bigger coins just to be given credit for it. Also would be nice to inc
Please port this to Steam.
Mario with a sword!
I didn't like this & I hope steam punks is good & better than this by far :-/
Thanks for making this game! I was having fun playing through regularly and then I found the steam powered mech! Love it! Would love to play more games like this! Looking forward to updates!
