Aug 4, 2020Skully is a masterclass in bad platformer design. Characters that are a chore to handle, sloppy level design, lousy camera controls, irritating puzzles, and a general lack of personality combine to create a profoundly tedious experience. If challenge is literally all you care about (even if it’s wildly unfair), Skully might be worth a shot at a steep discount. Everyone else should spare themselves the headache.

It’s just not very fun. Bad controls and bland level design are frustrating enough to make you feel constantly irritated, with the frequent checkpoints preventing things from being too annoying. Whilst I wouldn’t go as far as to say the game is terrible, I will say that it’s worse than that: it’s boring. A below average platformer that looks and plays like a relic from 15 years ago, yet wants to charge you €34.99 for a mere five hours of mediocrity. I’ve definitely played worse this year, but I’ve definitely played a better – and that includes Agony (which I’ll be reviewing next time!). Save your money and buy any other ball roller."
