Looking pretty sweet.

I found the trailer interesting. When you read its features on Steam, however, it sounds more limited.

GhoulBoy Features:

-4 bosses
-Chiptune retro musics
-Puzzles
-3 weapons (small sword,big sword, mace)
-2 throwable weapons
-Gamepad support

What I don't like is that it's €5 on Steam, but they're going to charge €10 on Switch for it. It's most likely the same on the Playstation platforms, but it doesn't seem fair or right. Wait for a sale, me thinks.
