    exciting 2d platformer

    This game is bringing old school back in a modern twist! If you love retro games and fall in love with captivating sound tracks, this game is for you. I love that there's an adventurous exploring aspect that leaves you dying for more. You'll get intrigued throughout diff. stages. The only con i can think of is the limited number of weapons you can use to kill villains. I'd def. prefer to expand weapon options. Other than that, it's pretty gratifying for a short-fun play.

    This is a fun little indie game. It feels right out of the super Nintendo era. It's not a platformer, as you mainly fly around and shoot with some light puzzle solving. The game is very charming, has nice 16 bit visuals, and subtle but impressive music. If you like 2d games, pixel art games, side scrollers, then this game is for you.

    This game was 10 years in the making and I am glad it finally came out. It looks gorgeous and it's very fun to play. Characters are poignant and I enjoyed the overall story. The price is pretty good too for the amount of content it offers. I love having this physically as part of my collection.

    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!

    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.

    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...

    Owned it originally on Steam bought it again because I enjoyed it so much and wanted to enjoy the game once more on the go. This is the best way to experience the game. In a format that can be on the big screen and handheld.

    Owlboy is a stunning platformer, by a small indie dev over the course of 10 years. The result is a labor of love that is fun to play and visually beautiful. Highly recommended!

    Heard good things about this game so I tried it out, and I'm glad I did. It's a fun platformer that looks good too. Check it out if you're a fan of the "metroidvania" genre.

    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.
