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.

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.

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 game with good ideas but poor execiution. The mechanics are flawed and originality doesn't exist. However, the art saves the dishes a bit and offers some charisma.

Good art direction and funny dialogues are not enough to be an overall good experience, and Skelattack suffers too much from difficulty peakes and inaccurate controls. Worth if you are an action platformer fan, anyway.

Skelattack is an indie platformer filled with charm, thrusting you into a beautifully designed world. It's punishing and frustrating, yet it always gives you the tools to plot your success.

As with the rest of the game, outside of the more focussed platform sequences, I was boosted through by the breezy mood more than anything else. Skelattack is a masterpiece in the art of the pleasant.

Skelattack is a challenging platform game, which does not forgive any error but at the same time leaves no room for frustration. Skully and Imber journey counts on beautiful graphics, plenty of action and an inspired soundtrack. Some game design errors, especially when dealing with enemies, can slightly flaw the experience, and the sections you play with Imber are probably too few to justify its presence, nevertheless the game is absolutely recommended if you love platform or 2D action games.

If you’re willing to bend to these crushing winds, Skelattack will be a blast.
