Downwell is a minimalist action rogue-lite game for the Nintendo Switch developed by Moppin and published by Devolver Digital. The player


The player dives into an endless well using their gunboots. The player only has 3 options for controls being left, right and jump. Holding jump will let the player fire beneath them. Enemies can be harming by stomping on them too. The boots reload after hitting a surface. Periodically, the player will encounter a timevoid which lets them stop. The timevoids often have small rewards like gems or different weapon types. There may also be a shop which can contain upgrades or items in exchange for gems.

The well is procedurally generated with the levels getting more challenging further down. At the end of each level, the player can choose of three upgrades to the player.
