There's something about David. that makes us want to pull out a simple, direct comparison to help explain its deeply engrossing gameplay, but for the moment we'll refrain.
It's a game that ultimately deserves to be considered as unique, despite clearly drawing from many influences.
Your character, David, is a square. He's out to thwart a series of massive, menacing bosses built from connected piles of triangles. This isn't a level-bashing game or a platformer - all you're required to do is defeat the behemoth geometric monster before moving on to the next one.
You're not unarmed, of course. David, as his biblical namesake suggests, is equipped with a distant relative of the slingshot. Holding a finger down on your character charges up this pseudo-slingshot. Flicking your finger discharges the shot in that direction, allowing you to dispatch any triangular limbs in range.
So long as you're prepared to push through the frustrations, David. is surprisingly deep and incredibly rewarding
