There are only one or two interesting uses of its core gameplay mechanic and no discernable challenge in any of its stages. If your favourite genre is retro platformers in that familiar yellow-green that feature squids for protagonists, Save me Mr Tako is an infinitely better game. Even if you have a religious attachment and nostalgia for all things Game Boy, Squidlit just ain’t it, Chief.
If you have an inkling for retro platformers, Squidlit is a must-have for the Switch. The overall aesthetic perfectly captures the essence of what made the Game Boy successful, although it is let down by the gameplay elements, which offer little challenge.
Squidlit is a charming adventure with accurate Game Boy aesthetics and nostalgic chiptune tracks. I had a lot of fun with Squidlit, so much so that I was disappointed when I learned that the game in its entirety can be completed within a half hour, which is most likely why it is listed with a $2USD price tag. I hope to see much more from Squidlit Ink in the future with “Retro-Recreations” that I can delve further into.
