Ever miss those side-scrolling adventure games, like the old Super Mario for the original Nintendo? Wind-Up Knight is just like that, but with a medieval twist, 3D style, and piles of customization and unlockable levels. The goal is to save the princess, and there are clever stories and tips along the trip that make it worth your while.
Just like games of the past, this app is simple but tricky. It is all about nailing down the timing. Wanna slash that evil dragon? Press the button. Wanna jump? You probably should or you’re going to fall onto those deadly spikes. Press that button! That’s basically all there is to it. But if you mess up once along the way, you get sent back to the start of the level. Nothing like some old-fashioned punishment on long levels where a perfect streak of timing becomes a true mental test. Are you cut out for it? The Princess sure hopes you are.
