  • Summary: *** Launching Sale!! Price off 66%! *** ‘Transform with the Full Moon!’ Wolf Boy is an exciting game with simple controls, fast action, and powerful transformations. The world where humans and monsters coexist… Monk, a giant monkey, has failed in his many attempts to conquer the world, each time because of the werewolf, Toto. In order to eliminate Toto, Monk kidnaps Rucy, Toto’s human girlfriend, and takes her to his castle beyond the Forest of Demons.
    To save his girlfriend, Toto sets out on an adventure in the Forest of Demons, where he meets all kinds of monsters.

    [Game Characteristics]

    1. Transformation
    : When Toto kills a monster, he absorbs a spirit that transforms him into a mighty werewolf during a full moon. This transformation lasts for a limited amount of time, during which Toto can kill monsters easily. As a werewolf, Toto’s health is not affected by attacks, and no monster can stand in his way. Enjoy the experience of this powerful transformation!

    2. Item Cube
    : Items with different functions are found in the Item Cubes in each stage. These items allow Toto to attack monsters with a weapon, attack from a distance, or become invisible. There are a lot more items, too, all of which can be viewed in the game.

    3. Upgrade
    : Toto’s werewolf skills can be upgraded so that he can continue to fight monsters, which become more powerful over time. When Toto’s speed is upgraded, he can run at incredible speeds for a dash attack. When his transformation time is upgraded, the duration of playing as a werewolf becomes longer. Toto’s many other skills can also be upgraded. What skills you choose to focus on are entirely up to you. Have fun!

    Wolf Boy might very well become a fun title for friends to determine who's the most hardcore, but for most gamers it's still a fun experience even if find yourself hitting that retry button early on.

    What's here, though, looks beautiful. Wolf Boy is without question one of the iPhone's most attractive 2-D games, full of pretty hand drawn artwork and cool special effects. We just wish there was more variety.

    While not reinventing the genre, Wolf Boy is an entertaining game with plenty of action, although it can tend to feel a bit repetitive.

    Wolf Boy would be a much better play if the difficulty ramped up at an approachable pace.

    Wolf Boy is too frustrating to be much fun, unless you enjoy lots of grinding and button-mashing.
