    This game plays smoothly and looks wonderful. It reminds me of "Mega Man" but with fantasy elements.

    The animation of this game is what drew me (no pun intended). But the gameplay mechanics along with a solid story is worth a look at.

    Charming pixel aesthetic and an interesting gameplay mechanic in which Owlboy moves and your companion attacks. I would have liked to see more done with the packaging - the inside is just white with legal information! Other than that, the game looks and plays great on the Switch.

    I picked this up on sale and with my gamer's club discount and it was totally worth it. Immersive story and entertaining game play. Would not buy it at regular price, but worth it if you can get it on sale.

    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.

    If you are a fan of old school gaming then pick this up. Highly recommended. Has some old school art as well as tight gameplay.

    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.

    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.
