    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.

    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 game is awesome, definitely one of the best retro style platformers of the past couple years. Bit unfortunate that the physical version didn't come with anything special aside from the game cart and case...

    Few games live up to owl boys story telling, and the pace of the game is great truly a beauty to play on the switch when it was only available before on Steam for PC. Highly recommend it.

    If you like 2d side scrollers you cannot go wrong with this game. I played it on the pc and I bought it again to be able to play it on the go whenever I want.

    Awesome game, have been looking forward to the physical copy of it for a while. Kind of short story, would have liked to see it longer. A great game anyhow
