Dizzy Knight

The game sees you controlling the titular spinning warrior - you're viewing the action from above, much like in the older Zelda games. This time round though, the hero is constantly whirling, and using their outstretched sword to attack anything. Enemies can get past your blade though, so you need to make sure you're hitting them from the right angle.

There are boss fights too, and they challenge you to use the skills you've learned smashing up the smaller enemies. There are potions to find too, which let you unleash massive attacks, or beef up your health if you've taken a beating.

You use the flasks with a tap on the screen, and your move around by dragging a finger around. It's a really easy system, and it lets you concentrate on the violence. That's a good thing, because there's always something to attack, something trying to kill you, or a new enemy to figure out.

When we reviewed the game we gave it a Silver Award and said "for all of its madness, this is actually a well balanced, expertly poised hack-and-slasher. It fits brilliantly on mobile, and if you're hankering for some new-old-school violence, then it's going to be right up your street."
