This story takes place in Donorok, in the state of Noctum. After the King of Noctum, Aster, disappears, chaos rules over the world. The relationships between Monsters, Mongos and Dreamers are completely unstable, and Donorok - the land so heavily affected by the chaos - slowly absorbs terrain from the surrounding regions.

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. It has some neat character designs and thoughtful art choices, but they don’t make up for the numerous glaring flaws.

Nightmare Boy is a fun experience for a few hours, and a lot of the glaring design choices around the gameplay can be overlooked or ignored for the most part. While Billy may feel heavy to control, he does almost always make it to the platforms, while the fighting systems are quite basic, but it allows for the focus to be on the exploration side of things instead.

Pasando por alto que no siempre da con la tecla –nos sobra el dato numérico de los impactos, hay un tiempo de invencibilidad tras recibir daño demasiado reducido, las trampas o la exploración no son el culmen de la originalidad-, Nightmare Boy es un honesto homenaje a muchos juegos clásicos de acción y plataformas añejos, esos donde la posición de los enemigos está puesta a mala idea y te exige concentración.
