Ojiro Fumoto has revealed that his brilliant action-platformer Downwell was profitable only three days after its launch.

He announced this on Twitter, saying: "Downwell is profitable after just three days, thanks to everyone for their support! More updates coming soon!"

What these updates might be is anyone's guess. However, Fumoto has let slip a couple of things he has been working on in the past few days.

First of all, he says he's planning to add a palette creation tool for people to make their own inside the game.

He's also been working on an update that will boost performance for older iOS devices - "can't promise 60fps but it's gotten considerably better than current state," he said on Twitter.

Oh, and here's a bonus for you. Fumoto also revealed how Downwell played before it had gunboots.

The idea started off as a simplified version of Spelunky. Hence, it was a straight-forward vertical platformer with lots of traps.

Here it is:


If you haven't already, you can purchase Downwell for £2.29 / $2.99 on the App Store. It's also available for £1.99 on Steam.
