Skeler Boy from Ratalaika Games and Manic Boy Studio will take you on a quest to find your girlfriend, who has disappeared without a trace. Check our Skeler Boy review!

 

Skeler Boy from Ratalaika Games and Manic Boy Studio will take you on a quest to find your girlfriend, who has disappeared without a trace. You’ll be playing as the titular Skelar, a white l-haired boy who will search everywhere for Megan, hoping to find her before it’s too late. You have no idea what happened to her, but you’ll give it your all as you dive into a journey that will start to take some turns into the bizarre. The game features voice acting in Spanish with subtitles in English.

Once you get control of Skeler, you’ll walk around each area by using the left analog stick or the D-Pad. You can sprint by pressing and holding down the Square button. If you want to speed things up, go into the options menu and activate auto dash so that Skeler always runs. The X button will be for interacting, which you can use to collect items or to, for example, open up a door. Once you collect the lamp, you’ll be able to turn it on and off by pressing the L1 and R1 buttons, respectively.

You’ll be tasked with completing some mini-games and puzzles along the way so that you can progress further and further to hopefully find Megan. You will, for example, need to collect a card with a code to open a door. Once you find it, you will then need to interact with a keypad and input the sequence of button presses and D-Pad directions before the timer runs out. Another puzzle might require that you interact with a series of valves to remove the dangerous steam that keeps you from reaching a switch in the back of the room.
