Nightmare Boy had the potential to be a quirky and fun take on the Metroidvania platform, but it squanders that potential by falling flat in nearly all the fundamental components of what makes those types of games fun to play in the first place.
By all means jump into the world of Billy and his nightmares, but you should be aware that the difficulty and horrible screen shake that is on offer may just be seeing you losing some sleep of your own.
A most effective metroidvania with referents such as such as Decap Attack, Cool Spot or Global Gladiatiors. But is not another game built on nostalgia, it takes his predecesor to achieve it's own personality. A solid gameplay and a beautiful art desing complete a game that should be and instant classic for arcade lovers.
