Owlboy shines thanks to surprisingly varied, Metroidvania-style gameplay and a charming cast of unlikely heroes whose bittersweet journey is among the best I’ve experienced in recent years. Its remarkably detailed pixel art makes every scene more breathtaking than the last, but it’s the relationships between characters in both story and gameplay that makes Owlboy something truly special.
I would like to express my gratitude to this game studio for the OwlBoy. This game was the first in which I played, acquiring a gamepad for my PC. For me, it was a great revelation that a simple graphics platform could turn out to be a beautiful atmospheric world with a deep and interesting plot. OwlBoy gave the first impression of this genre of games. I would like to tell for people that made this game "Thank you very much for this generous gift to me as a player".
Owlboy just sets the new standard for neo-retro videogames. Glowing with variety and compelling characters, Otus and his adventure succeed at evoking the games of yesteryear as much as they make a bold statement: pure 2D gaming is back for good.
I can't believe how beautiful this game is !!!
On top of that, the adventure is just so sweet to do. It's never boring, always things are happening and the story goes on. Characters are really well designed and there are tons of beautiful and expressive animations.
I absolutely love the atmosphere and the story is also good and original. To me this is definitely the best adventure platformer of 2016.
Though it's been a while, I can't recall all the specifics, but I do remember having a great time playing this game. It had a nostalgic charm that reminded me of classic titles, even though I can't quite pinpoint which ones. The storyline was easy to follow yet intriguing, and the gameplay was satisfactory. The challenging boss fights provided a thrilling experience, and overall, I had a lot of fun with this game. I would definitely recommend it!
The plot is nice as it is the gameplay but never revolutionary or noteworthy, it's a short story full with puzzle and platforming, which are never challeging but always rewarding, the bosses are not the best part of the game but at least they are not annoying. It is a 7/10 surely not more than that.
I wanted so much to like this game, I tried so hard. I am so sorry but sincerely I couldn't bring myself to even finish it. Beautiful graphics don't necessarily make a good game. I really can't say why I didn't like this game exactly, but it was a mix of everything. First of all: Characters, most of them are boring stereotypes which would be fine if you had something to drive my attention towards so I wouldn't care about that too much. Then the game-play; it felt bland, boring, just not what I expected I guess. I don't know how to fix this game, and that is what bothers me the most. Please do not think that because I didn't enjoy it, you won't. But it is true that this could have been so much more. The potential was there, it just falls way too short to be actually good. Maybe just not my cup of tea.
SummaryOwlboy is a 'hi-bit' adventure game, where you can fly and explore a brand new world in the clouds. Pick up your friends, and bring them with you as you explore the open skies. Overcome obstacles and greater enemies in this detailed adventure.
