Being dead is not so bad when you have the Underworld to live in. A magical and expansive world inhabited by quirky, charming and sometimes deadly inhabitants of the afterlife, the Underworld also includes Aftervale. Aftervale is a happy hub where the dead spend eternity and begin to come to terms with their time alive through a Remembrance. For our hero Skully, Remembrance day comes crashing down as humans invade from the kingdom above. Instead of raiding the Underworld for treasures, they kidnap the Aftervale's elder skeleton Elzedon and then go after the very magic that kindles the spirits of the dead, the Blue Flame. Without the Blue Flame, there is no Aftervale nor existence beyond death. Jump, slash and flap your way through the Underworld together with your best bat friend Imber! It's up to you to stop the human invasion, save the Elder, protect the Blue Flame and confront Skully's past life. FEATURES: - Versatile and fluid platforming. - Deadly charming art style - Be a warrior AND a skeleton. - Fight the Humans before they plunder your un-life! - Meet the unique cast of happy monsters and make friends along the way - Play as Imber the bat, your adorable best friend - Explore at your leisure and look for secrets, or try to speed run - Fun for all skill levels and challenge seekers - Extensive check point system of Blue Flames to practice your jumps!

A fun action platformer with plenty of charm and some great visuals, that's only let down by an uneven difficulty level that seems unsure exactly how hard it wants to be.

Skelattack is a side-scrolling platformer with a lot of heart, but it ends too quickly and the obstacles it places in front of you are hampered because of it.

With a lovely cast of characters and a gorgeous art style, fans of challenging 2D platformers will surely love Skellatack. It's a shame that because of some design flaws the challenge sometimes become frustration. Otherwise, you can clearly see there's a lot of potential here.

Skelattack is a fantastic platformer with a real sense of character and gorgeous aesthetics. Blending cutesy graphics with challenging platforming and some strategic boss fights, it manages to really stand out and deserves to do well. Here's hoping for more adventures with Skully and Imber in future.
