      I decided to purchase this game after listening to a review that states that this game is like a Super Nintendo game. Once I heard Super Nintendo, I knew I had to purchase it because I am Super Nintendo fan boy. Is this game like a side-scroller from the Super Nintendo. Yes and no. The game looks beautiful, like a SNES game, and there are elements from a SNES side-scroller; but it also has its rpg elements, which makes the game slow. At times, I rather just play than read the text. However, for the actual game play, it is an enjoyable game; but be warned, there is a learning curve for the controls.

      A Worthy Addition to the Switch Collection

      The game itself is excellent, with fun metroid-vania like progression and exploration, as well as an engaging story and beautifully rendered art style. The physical version itself seems a bit lacking (it's just the cover and the game cart) when compared to Nicalis games (usually include full manuals and other 'goodies'), but otherwise it's a worthy indie darling that feels most appropriate to have on the Switch.

      An extremely charming game with interesting new take on classic gameplay, humorous and unique characters, and well developed game world. It can be slow at the start but evolves into a competent platformer. It shows that its an indie developed game and is a little awkward on the joy-con. Easy to pick up and put down in portable mod since it saves room to room.

      A beautiful game, but a little overrated

      Owlboy has absolutely gorgeous graphics and a stellar soundtrack with some endearing characters. However, the gameplay is a little more of a mixed bag with long stretches of repetitive tasks and finicky controls that never quite "clicked". Worth it if you love older style pixel games, but certainly not perfect!

      This game is great and definitely worth a purchase. Tight controls and compelling gameplay. Beautiful visuals and unique battles but can get slightly buggy and repetitive at some points so that's why I can't give a full 5 at this moment. If you have the cash, go for the limited edition because it's awesome.

      This game is so much fun! It gives you that nostalgic feel from early gaming in the Nintendo & Sega era of entertainment. It's a twist on the classic 2 stick shooter style game, with a slight twist and wonderfully charming storyline. Do yourself a favor if you do not own this game yet, buy it now!

      Beautiful 16-bit graphics, great use of music and sound and an engaging story. What else can I say that has not already been said about this awesome game. If you're a fan of side-scrolling platformers, I highly recommend you check this little gem out.

      This is an indie game with great attention to detail through pixel art. The animation is fluid and the music is almost cinematic. The gameplay also feels fun controlling Otis with having him fly around and each new mechanic you’re introduced to is used to its potential.
