Bulb Boy reviews and comments

Translated by

Graphic Adventure not suitable for everyone, very strange atmosphere and everything in the same color tone. Simple Puzzles that don't require too much skill. Short Duration. It is worth playing to get out of our comfort zone.

Yes, I advise you... If you find it on sale and you like point & click with humor. It will not be the great hairy, but it remains pleasant by mixing with its beautiful graphics and its typical atmosphere horror.

Excellent Adventure, with an ambience and unique design. Between endearing and terror. It Doesn't have a dialogue, it's all intuitive with icons and clicking for interaction. You DO NOT even need to understand English as it is very easy to understand the history of the Game. Highly recommended.

A very nice game, which changes traditional points & clicks. The cute/horific style is reminiscent of Edmund McMillen, for that matter, we can see one of Isaac's drawings (from the game "the binding of Isaac") on the upstairs fridge! Too bad it is so short (~ 2H) and the scenario is vague... Although I suppose it is a choice, and since I have not understood what I suppose to be a metaphor, namely the whole story ^^ ' in short, I recommend it if you like the genre.

Bulb boy is a point'n'click that has the buttocks stuck between two chairs. On the first side is humor, with great reinforcement of grotesque hairy, farts and other sounds between all ridiculous, but also of absurd situations, while on the second is held the horror, with an aesthetic that is reminiscent of a Binding of Isaac-this is at least what I have come to mind at the outset. In three words, black, creepy and dirty at your wish. That being said, having the buttocks stuck between two chairs is not necessarily a handicap. The proof, bulb boy, although very short (less than 3h), comes out with honors. And we'll ask again. Verdict: 3.5/5-which is good, but not top.

I do not recommend this game at the price or it is sold (€8.99). As far as I'm concerned I got it in a pack of 3 games for €5 during the balances and luckily as I would have greatly regretted it if I had to buy it at a high price. I have more feeling of a delirium done between other projects rather than a real adventure game. The puzzles will not give you a lot of thread to twist, the dialogues.... Baby.... There is absolutely none, the story does not really end. Graphically not unpleasant but must love. And for a lifespan of 1-2 hours it is best to take it on a promo day. A game that for me has nothing to do with a point n ' click to Riddle and that is closer to a delusional web game.
