  • Summary: David. // is a game. A game about physics and enemies. A game about struggles and life. A game about David. You play David, an awfully small abstracted chosen hero tossed into a blissfully simple world overrun by giant culminations of evil physics-beasts. As David, you are given a slingshot-esque gift that you will have to use to conquer your colossus foes. Hold, aim, and fling to attack (Angry Birds style!). Expand

    David feels very unique in both gameplay and art style, so much so that I recommend it to anyone who seems even remotely interested.

    David presents an abstract, dangerous world that’s as tough as it is beautiful and surprisingly emotive.

    David's control scheme has clearly been built around the touchscreen, but while the game's a delight on iOS (on iPhone, at least - the buggy iPad version is awaiting a fix at the time of writing), it works surprisingly well on PC and Mac, too.

    While the game is a bit rough around the edges (right now it's not running properly on a handful of devices including the original iPad Mini) and certainly takes some time to get used to, David is definitely a game that's worth your attention.

    So long as you're prepared to push through the frustrations, David. is surprisingly deep and incredibly rewarding.

    Using just a handful of shapes, Andrew Armstrong created a captivating and challenging game. Controls can get messy, but any boss is unique and fascinating.

    David. is an action packed challenge that is well executed making it worth picking up. Too bad it leaves you wanting more.

    So neat! Had a lot of fun with this. I've read things about the controls being bad, but really I think it's just another part of the game that makes it interesting. Challenging, sure, but not frustrating. Woo! Expand

    Love how the levels vary from focusing on shooting in one, moving in another. It's more like a puzzle than a shooter in that regard. SPOILER: it is great and you will love it. Expand
