  • Summary: A bell begins ringing incessantly in your quarters. A frantic friend paces nervously as you awaken from your undead slumber. He warns you of invading humans! It is up to you to heed his words, arm yourself for battle, and venture out into your unprotected underground home.

    You are Skully,
    A bell begins ringing incessantly in your quarters. A frantic friend paces nervously as you awaken from your undead slumber. He warns you of invading humans! It is up to you to heed his words, arm yourself for battle, and venture out into your unprotected underground home.

    You are Skully, an undead skeleton whose sole purpose is to protect the dungeon he and many others call home. Along with your bat companion Imber, you will travel through sewers, lush underground nature preserves, and many other perilous environments. You will do so in the name of protecting your friends, guarding your treasures, and keeping hidden the dungeon's deepest secrets.

    Skelattack puts an unconventional twist on your classic dungeon-crawler. Instead of playing the human hero fighting his way through the dungeon, killing all the baddies and pillaging all the loot, you play as one of the dungeon's typical skeleton NPCs. This is life (or rather, death) on the other side of the aisle: the plight of the creatures whose home is constantly under threat from those who reside above-ground.

    Overall, Skelattack is a solid game that will put you to the test as much as it will mesmerize you with story and visuals. It might be a bit much for some, but the story makes the journey worth the trouble.

    Skelattack is an indie platformer filled with charm, thrusting you into a beautifully designed world. It's punishing and frustrating, yet it always gives you the tools to plot your success.

    Skelattack represents a good first test for Ukasa developers: there are still some problems due to the inexperience of the team to be fixed, but overall it is a good platform/adventure game.

    Good art direction and funny dialogues are not enough to be an overall good experience, and Skelattack suffers too much from difficulty peakes and inaccurate controls. Worth if you are an action platformer fan, anyway.

    Skelattack is a great-looking, albeit completely frustrating game that will surely delight and infuriate folks. Even though I tossed my controller aside more than once in my playthrough, I can’t help but feel the allure to try again. I know I’m going to grunt and moan the entire time, but the look and lore of this game are too much to ignore despite my complaints.

    Skelattack is a game with good ideas but poor execiution. The mechanics are flawed and originality doesn't exist. However, the art saves the dishes a bit and offers some charisma.

The plot of the title is pleasantSo the developer David Stanley has created a challenging and atmospheric game for the console and the PC. The plot of the title is pleasant and guides us through the different levels. Here you can immediately see where the hammer hangs. So the title starts really hard and becomes more pleasant bit by bit. Thanks to the quickly learnable skills and upgrades, we can defend ourselves against the enemies and challenges and reach the goal. However, until then you will experience some deaths. The graphics and sound are really good and complete the very positive overall impression.
