What is it about?
Journey Below ($2.99) by Ravenous Games is an auto-running platformer with a dash of roguelike RPG elements to it. It also features a knight who is set on saving the kingdom from an evil monster. Yes, it’s an overdone gaming trope but the real meat of the game is the challenge of an auto-running platformer. Plus, it’s from the same guys who brought you Tiny Rogue (http://appadvice.com/review/tiny-rogue), the League of Evil franchise (http://appadvice.com/appnn/2013/06/ravenous-games-hit-platformer-series-continues-with-league-of-evil-3), Random Heroes (http://appadvice.com/appnn/tag/random-heroes), and Devious Dungeons (http://appadvice.com/review/devious-dungeon-2), so they know a thing or two about platformers in general.
