Owlboy is a sensational game, which is the best example of what today's 2D games should look like. The story, full of emotion and fast action, stays in memory long after game is finished.

If you called Owlboy a piece of art, I would nod my head and agree wholeheartedly. This game, in visuals alone, is a masterful achievement. For those breath-taking visuals to be matched by equally beautiful characters and unique gameplay moments just elevates it even further. The beginning of the game is a bit too slow, and sometimes the gameplay was merely okay, but those are minor blemishes on a video game experience that is absolutely worth your time, and definitely worth the decade that it took to bring it to life.

Owlboy comes to demonstrate to indie development how with patience and good work, a long development, no matter how long it may be, can end up in a good port. A polished and simple gameplay, charismatic characters and a story that goes beyond the epic.

Without its incredible presentation, stunning visuals and charming music, Owlboy would be devoid of anything special.

Owlboy brings an absolutely amazing visual environment to the Nintendo Switch, along with an exquisite soundtrack and an involving plot. The game exudes the passion and commitment that its creators put into it and any Nintendo Switch owner will find in Owlboy a wonderful addition to their catalog, which keeps getting richer and more varied thanks to gems like this.

Owlboy is a stunning retro metroidvania title that is a joy to play and get lost in. If you have to play one retro title this year other than Celeste, do yourself a favor and pick up Owlboy for console or PC.
