The time in which all indies were inherently exciting and mysterious may have already passed on by us, but Skully shows that indies can be just as magical as they’ve ever been if you know where to look.
With its tight controls and overall gameplay, charming visuals, and wondrous audio design, Skully is a game for platforming fans young and old alike.
I was unexpectedly charmed by Skully. With some excellent controls and a story told earnestly, I was gripped throughout its entire run. Sure, its shorter time might turn off some and its collectables aren't that worthwhile, but it more than makes up for that. It doesn't waste time and it makes for a pleasant romp. Suffice to say, I'm curious to see what Finish Line Games makes next.
Curious skull in a war between the deity's three siblings offers entertaining gameplay.

Skully is basically two games in one, where one of the games shines brighter than the other. Despite that, the game still tells an incredibly complex story in a fun and whimsical way. The characters are all great, and the journey to the end is one worth taking. For the Switch version, you will just need to look past some of the blemishes as you make your way through.
Despite the frustration and anger which Skully built up within me, this challenging puzzle-platformer is very addictive and one of the most visually stunning indies I’ve played this year. Utilising three different clay-based Forms to solve the multitude of environment-based puzzles was fun and tricky at times, often requiring you to combine their various abilities to come up with a solution. The game is quite brutal and unforgiving, especially if you’re going for the platinum, but as long as you have enough patience and perseverance, you’ll make it through to the final cutscene. It has a few flaws and questionable choices, but the journey is worth it in the end.
A beautiful, hilarious and all-around cute platformer/roller, Skully is deserving of the praise. The difficulty can ebb and flow at times, but don’t let that put you off.
Skully is the complete package for fans of inventive platform games. It takes concepts from traditional platform games and Marble Madness to create an evolution of both that will bring you hours of fun while you try and save the island from impending doom.
Although it occasionally becomes tedious and some sections can be frustrating, Skully should please fans of the genre looking for a 3D puzzle platformer with a fun, well-told story to accompany its platforming challenges.
Skully is a game that, we have already said, is not going to reveal anything to us that we have not seen before, but what it does, it does it well and beautiful. Skully has that charm of games made with illusion and with no other intention than to escape from reality for a while and roll
