Summary

Sometimes you just need a casual easy to play platformer. Onion Boy 2 is that game, it is delightful in its simplicity, jump around collect coins, and turn into ninjas and wizards as you go through the thirty levels. It doesn’t push your skills in any way but it does play nice. If you are into them trophies then this will have you netting the Platinum trophy within half an hour. I wanted more variety and maybe a way to play it with more challenge but to be honest it’s just a good casual platformer.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
