Wind-up Knight

By Robot Invader

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Wind-up Knight by Robot Invader is a high-end, action-packed, 3D side-scrolling adventure game, and it's here to show you how games are supposed to be played.

Guide your Wind-up Knight through devilish levels--over 50 in all--to rescue the Princess from the clutches of the evil Black Knight. Run, jump, roll, and slash your way to victory. Not your typical runner game, Wind-up Knight is the type of challenging game you've been missing in your life.

Here are some bullet points all up in your grill:

• Over 50 soul-crushing levels in four unique worlds.
• Intense platforming action: double jumping, wall sliding, dive and roll, just to name a few cool moves.
• Universal app with iCloud support and Game Center achievements!
• New weapons and armor unlock as you play the game. Use the Armory to equip items and customize your character!
• Original soundtrack by Josh Whelchel.

Wind-up Knight has been designed from the ground up by Robot Invader to provide a console-level experience for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The Princess hasn't got all day, download it now!

Note: if you are mega awesome it is possible to unlock all the levels in this game for free. If you prefer to pay a few bucks to unlock levels, that's cool too.

Note 2: If you bought Wind-up Knight before its price was changed to FREE on February 22, 2012, make sure to beat the first level before updating to this version so that the content you paid for remains unlocked.

A Must Play

This is hands down my favorite game for mobile devices. It runs great on both tablets and smartphone (although I would give the nod to tablets for graphics and visibility), and is crazy addictive!
When you first start playing it may seem a little too simple, but have no fear, once you start gaining new abilities the difficulty starts ramping up. At its core this is a platformer, but you can't stop your character from running, and if you don't collect keys to wind up your knight, he will run out of fuel. The level design is great, there are secret ways to go in each level which rewards you with a collectible item you use to unlock powerful weapons and armor that is needed later in the game. The levels almost feel like a puzzle you need to solve using the abilities you gain throughout the game such as: double jumping, wall jumping / sliding, using a shield to block fire an falling objects, and rolling to go under low obstacles. There are many instances where you have to use multiple abilities at the same time to reach the end. Each book, or set of levels, ends with a "nightmare" level which tests all the skills you have gained in the game so far, which are difficult but very satisfying an a blast to play through.
Don't be fooled by the somewhat slow start of this game you will be happy for it when you get to the end. And don't think twice play this game now!

Simply Perfect

This game is the most addicting app I've ever come across. Everyday I'd invest a good chunk of time on this. The great thing is, you don't have to pay. You just have to work for it. When I was playing this game, I would not go on to another level until I got the S rank(Which you get if you collect all the coins and the card) simply because I knew that in order to unlock all the levels, I would need all the notes I could get(Notes unlock armor and the other books). It's one of those games that you don't mind playing again and again. The graphics are great and the levels are challenging. All that a good platform ear needs. Keep up the great work guys. I really loved it.

Don't read the bad reviews.

The game is simple to learn, but difficult to play. It starts out at an easy pace, but it will get difficult very quickly.

The game consists of pressing a button to deal with a situation. So far I have learned jump, roll, sword, and shield. To be honest I had some difficulty at the shield level but after a few attempts I got it down.

The people who gave bad reviews probably had difficulty playing the game. It is a mind twister and it makes you think. It's a perfect example of games that I like to play.
