I can lean back and pick out plenty of things about Owlboy that frustrated me, but its failings shrink in the face of its triumphs. I have no excess of affection for the 16-bit genre retreads but even as Owlboy lacks the tightness or consistency of many of the games it sits alongside, it’s far more approachable, far more endearing, and far more unique.

At its heart, Owlboy is a throwback and reimagining of a genre gone by, yet it feels like a game you might've already played - one you're returning to with fond memories. That's no coincidence, and it speaks volumes of what D-Pad Studios has achieved. Owlboy is a modern day retro classic.

No game is perfect, but comes as close as it could get within its genre. The new game to beat in its sector; we're talking pure video game ecstasy. How we score:  The Destructoid Reviews...

I just graduated from college when development started on Owlboy. At least, that's when public development began. That was in 2008. D-Pad Studio, a five-person team, has worked on the game ever since. This was an indie game before the indie game...

Owlboy es un juego por el cual tuvimos que esperar mucho tiempo. En desarrollo durante la mayor parte de la última década, la producción de D-Pad Studios finalmente fue lanzada para PC el mes pasado. Por lo general, cuando un juego se pierde durante...

International Review By gamer.nl on 70

Owlboy oogt fantastisch en heeft het hart op de juiste plaats, maar heeft een matig verhaal dat het fantastische gebruik van pixels in de weg zit. Ook de gameplay komt door de constante onderbrekingen maar niet van de grond. Dat het spel bovendien...

International Review By FZ.se on 100

Den norska spelstudion D-Pad Studio har tagit nio år på sig att utveckla sin numera lanserade 2D-plattformare Owlboy, och det märks. Många har följt spelet under hela utvecklingen och väntat ivrigt på ny information. Jag är dock inte en av dem, utan...

W grze wcielamy się w postać chłopaka-sowy Ortisa. Jego zadaniem jest chronienie wioski przed złymi piratami. Ci powracają co jakiś czas, aby wprowadzić terror w mieście. Na szczęście jest jednak nasz dzielny bohater, to co może pójść nie tak?...

International Review By nrsgamers.it on 89

Owlboy è un adventure eccellente, consigliatissimo a tutti gli appassionati del genere e in generale dei videogame dei tempi andati. Il gioco regala feeling simili a quelli di uno Zelda in virtù del design stratosferico e di un carattere fortissimo...

International Review By Gamer.no on 90

Owlboy kan lett måle krefter med andre moderne plattformspill som Shovel Knight og Super Meat Boy. Det gir nok ikke et like eksplosivt inntrykk, men det er forståelig ettersom dette spillet i større grad tar sikte på å utforske mørkere og mer personlig...
