Reviews

“Its beautiful world, surprisingly emotional story, and diverse enemy pool will leave you wanting more”
9/10 – PC Invasion

“Narita Boy is a bold and unapologetic love letter to the 80s, featuring excellent platforming action and combat, along with an emotional narrative that I couldn’t help but be heavily invested in.”
9/10 – The Gamer

“Don't think about how many 2D "metroidvania" you've played in the last few months... think there's none like Narita Boy”
8.9/10 – Hobby Consolas

About This Game

Story

Flashback to the 80s. The Creator, a genius of his time, creates a video game console called Narita One with its flagship title being a game called Narita Boy.


Narita Boy becomes a tremendous hit! Copies of cartridges are flying off physical shelves worldwide. Within weeks Narita Boy is the best-selling video game of all time, critically acclaimed for its power-fantasy wielding Techno-sword and taking players on a journey like no other.

Meanwhile, inside the binary code, the digital realm connects with reality. Him has returned and deleted The Creator’s memories. Supervisor program, Motherboard, and her agents have activated the Narita Boy protocol.

The Stallions are coming, and the Digital Kingdom needs a hero.
