    Harking back to old-school platforming fun, Dan the Man brings excellent gameplay

    • Pushes you to spend real money
    • Ads

    "Dan, please save the day"


    Dan The Man, from the creators of mega hit mobile games Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, brings old school platform gaming with newer 2D mobile graphics straight to your device. You’ll choose which main character you want to play, and using the on-screen buttons, you’ll punch, kick, and shoot your way through different levels, jumping over obstacles like bridges, water, and always staying mindful of your limited health bar. The main objective? Save the villagers from the oppressive king and his evil cronies. How far will you go in this platformer to save the day?


    It’s difficult to find flaws in Dan The Man, as the game is packed full of great platforming action, accessible controls, simple yet fun and addicting gameplay, and great sound, making for a mobile game you won’t quickly put down.


    Yes, there are ads, and yes, there a ton of in-app purchases which will quickly add up, so be prepared to bear through the push to purchase content.
