"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"

So far a good game. My only real complaint is that when you open the menu, the timer keeps ticking. IMO, a game for a mobile device must be able to be paused at any time in any place in the game and should automatically pause when a menu is opened. I'm rating this 5 stars in hope that this will be addressed.
Edit- the game started crashing after the ads appeared. I noticed this happening especially after losing a life. Rebooting and freeing up over a gig of memory didn't help. Didn't see a contact link on the dev's page, so I'm mentioning it here.
Average platformer hampered by floaty controls.
It is what it is, which is reminiscent of Mario mixed with some heavier action elements. Unfortunately the comparison, which is very very difficult to ignore, only highlights this titles weakness.
The levels are very Mario-"esqe", even going so far as to have warp pipes, piranha plants and fire flowers, only here there is much much less vertical gameplay and an a absence of multiple approaches to a level.
The controls are also incredibly floaty, they just lack heft and the similarities to well-designed platform titles, again, highlights this weakness in game-feel.
Okay game so far. Has a few bugs.
I marked it down because the controls could definitely use some polishing, the need to grind for coins to get needed upgrades, and there also appears to be a few bugs.
To be fair, I think it has potential as a platformer. I'll come back and update my review as I get farther into the game.
