    Heavy Sword doesn't reinvent the platforming wheel, but takes a lot of ideas from good games in the genre to make an enjoyable experience.

    The swords are indeed massive and there's a surprising amount of platforming goodness to be had, but problematic controls sour the experience.

    Despite the pedigree of its inspiration, HEAVY – sword fails to deliver the same warm fuzzies as a certain Italian plumber.

    A platformer with a few decent ideas, HEAVY-sword is let down by clumsy controls and a stark reliance on nostalgia.

    Heavy Sword ($0.99, Universal) looks interesting on the surface, but is as shallow as games come. There’s virtually no redeeming qualities of this poorly made bland knock off, making it one to stay far away from.
