I had an awesome time with Owlboy. The game possesses a great story that may bring tears to your eyes, but it will also bring you happiness as this little Owl soars thru the sky with his loyal friends. If you have a taste for retro-styled music, you’ll definitely get a kick out of the soundtrack, and will find yourself residing in the same area because you love hearing a particular song.
In short, Owlboy is plainly superb. As it was in 2016, D-Pad Studios has crafted an excellent adventure that should be played by all. If you’ve already experienced Owlboy on another platform, there’s nothing here you haven’t yet seen. But if, like me, you never did play it before – now is the perfect time to experience one of the best indie adventures in modern memory.
