If you put Zelda’s action-RPG system, Paper Mario’s platforming, and a heavy dash of voxel graphics into a blender, you’d likely get something resembling Skellboy. At times, admittedly, the game lacks polish and can drag quite a bit, especially in the beginning. Nevertheless, it brings new ideas to the platforming and RPG genres, while looking pretty stellar to boot.
With an imaginative world and equally imaginative premise, Skellboy is an admirable attempt to provide an alternative to your average Zelda title. If you can get past the sluggish gameplay and cringe-worthy technical performance, there’s plenty here to get to grips with, and you’re guaranteed at least a few laughs thanks to the hilarious writing and dialogue.
Skellboy simply isn't consistent. It's easy on both the eyes and ears, but not on the soul. It's a frustrating and rather draining game to play because the pace is just too slow. It's a shame too because the boss fights could make up for that as long as it felt worthwhile, but it doesn't. Skellboy simply feels very shallow, and while normally I would say that beauty is only skin deep, there is no skin here, so it cuts to the bone.
