Skully isn’t an entirely lost cause. There’s an entertaining enough puzzle platformer hidden underneath its myriad visual flaws. It may be uglier than sin and you may be accompanied by an irritating voiceover throughout, but you’ll still have some fun playing through it and the plot does resolve itself in a nice way by the end. You'll just need to be able to roll with a lot of annoyances to get there.
Even though the Switch version’s visuals are a little rough, which doesn’t play nicely with the overall visual blandness of the levels, the style of the character designs is appealing. Underneath Skully is a lot of charm, but enough issues pile up that pull it back into the mud.
While Skully is undoubtedly a fun and enjoyable platformer, the texture issues that it faces are too big a problem to ignore. Despite the great voice acting and storytelling, the visual issues sadly outweigh this in terms of affecting your gameplay. Skully could have been amazing, but sadly it sits bang in the middle of good instead.
