Critic Reviews for Owlboy

A beautiful adventure platformer with a cheerful pixel art veneer, but with very modern themes.

It's taken nine years to land, but Owlboy is well worth the wait.

Owlboy shines thanks to surprisingly varied, Metroidvania-style gameplay and a charming cast of unlikely heroes whose bittersweet journey is among the best I’ve experienced in recent years. Its remarkably detailed pixel art makes every scene more breathtaking than the last, but it’s the relationships between characters in both story and gameplay that makes Owlboy something truly special.
