    The Bulb Boy’s brief but brilliant battle to reclaim his home from the hideous monsters of the night underscores the proverbial victory of light over darkness, and quality over quantity.

    It feels odd calling a point & click horror game adorable, but that’s what Bulb Boy is. Heartwarming moments are mixed with gross-out details without any friction. The surreal story has plenty of twists and turns, and the puzzles are enjoyable to work out. This little indie title is truly a gem in its own special way.

    It’s a short game, that’s for sure, but it’s still an incredibly good point and click adventure, that will leave a sign. Try it out, it will capture your heart with its great art direction and smart puzzles.

    A pretty simple and straightforward point and click adventure, yet with an adorable, over the top personality. Absolutely irresistible if you love horror, kawaii and... toilet humor.

    A great game full of dark crude humor. Not particularly scary, but rather gruesome and disgusting in a very funny and childish way. TheA great game full of dark crude humor.

    The description by the developer of cute and gross is spot on. This is a short point and click game with clever little puzzles. The questionThe description by the developer of cute and gross is spot on. This is a short point and click game with clever little puzzles. The question mark at the top of the screen gives you little hints in the form of bubbles and pictures and were enough for me the few times I got stuck. Not much in instructions and I couldn't get the controller to work but found it really only took the mouse to play. Kept me up playing until it was over. Very charming if you can take the grossness.

    It's a very original adventure point&click game as bizarre as funny. It's as if you are inside a weird nightmare. I liked a lot.
