Poor controls and a bland aesthetic mean that Skeleton Boomerang is a game you won't be returning to any time soon.

As a whole, Skeleton Boomerang is good. The game strikes a nice balance between being short enough for casual players to finish while also hiding lots of different things for completionists. Though the lack of checkpoints can be frustrating for those who aren't used to it, the game feels fair, since most of the enemies and obstacles can be easily overcome if you put some thought into it. There's nothing remarkable about the title, but for $10, it's a solid purchase.

An entertaining and nicely constructed love letter to the Metroidvania games of old. If you're the kind of person that got excited for the SNES mini then this is one to watch.
