Wind-Up Knight For Android
If you are a fan of adventure side scrolling games on Android devices, then you should not miss out on this wonderfully done game by XDA member TheOneBD. Wind-up Knight somewhat reminds us of Cordy, which is another Android game. In this one, you must guide your character through long levels where he will need to jump, dash, and do everything he can to rescue the princess from the Black Knight. You do all this in a beautifully designed 3D environment that will leave you asking for more, even if the game is about 50 levels long. The game runs rather smooth and it seems that the bardware requirements are for a mid to high end device (Nexus One, Evo 4G, etc).
As it is customary with most Android apps, this is a work in progress, so any and all feedback is highly appreciated.
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. Wind-up Knight is the type of challenging game you have been waiting for.
