DeepWorld is a sandbox title from Bytebin that brings familiar features to players in a stark, post-apocalyptic world. We've been playing a lot of DeepWorld lately and offer our official review. See what we've got to say before diving into the comments with your thoughts.
The world hasn’t got the bling of 3-D mobile games with full character animations, voice-overs, and waving grass, but it is a 107 MB download, not 600 MB.
