If there has ever been a hero with a more delightful sounding name than Bulb Boy, then I haven’t heard it. So what the hell is our lovingly-titled protagonist doing delivering a horror adventure to Xbox One?
Out now and available for download on Xbox One is Bulb Boy, a horror title that has been inspired by Machinarium and Gobliiins.
Priced at £7.19, you’ll find a tale that sees you solving puzzles, fighting off the most horrific of monsters and taking in a tale that twists and turns at every opportunity. Thankfully our hero comes with many talents – not least the chance to unscrew his head (that’s straight out of a horror flick if I ever saw it) in order to light up the way ahead.
If you fancy taking this tale in, are being sold the premise on the back of the promise of some horror, or just love that little chubby Bulb Boy face, then you should be getting over to the Xbox Games Store immediately.
