Wolf Boy by NHN Corporation puts you in the all too familiar situation of being on a casual stroll with your 'gal' when all of a sudden... out of nowhere... some 'bad dude' decides to kidnap her. Being a super-powered dynamo of a teen werewolf you set off to take on the near-endless slew of enemies that stand in your way.
Wolf Boy plays much like other 2D beat'em-up titles, with d-pad controls to dash left and right and two buttons to jump and attack. After defeating a number of enemies you can activate the full-moon to transform in to a large, invincible werewolf that can tear through enemies like they're made out of paper - at least early on. Enemies quickly start to beef up, soaking enormous amounts of damage, however players can spend cash earned throughout levels to max out their stats for the human and werewolf forms.
The artwork is fantastic, with detailed 2D sprites for all of the characters and special effects. Areas change after defeating a boss every few levels, but this is easier than it sounds as enemies also populate these levels and if you slip up you can end up in a brief and inescapable sequence of attacks that demolish your health-bar.
Wolf Boy is a lot of fun, but quickly reaches a level of difficulty that will seriously challenge all but the most hardened of hardcore action fans. This title is a great quick blast of fun, especially while it remains cheap, but it may not reach the long-haul for most gamers.
DescriptionThe 2nd Update of Wolf Boy!
Tons of players all over the world are captured by Wolf boy's exciting, fast-paced action!
Awesome visuals, character design, and gameplay. The full moon and transformation concept is really cool in the way it's implemented. Great job to the debs, and this one comes highly reccomended.
I haven’t really done any reviews yet, but this game is AWESOME! Very action packed and it keeps you performing your at the edge with an overwhelming amount of enemies. I haven’t finished it yet, but I do hope it’s a lengthy game since all my stats are already nearly maxed out, after just 45 mins of playing!
Dash attack is pretty cooooool !!!
and It's awesome.
Wolf Boy is an exciting game with simple controls, fast action, and powerful transformations.
The world where humans and monsters coexist…
Monk, a giant monkey, has failed in his many attempts to conquer the world, each time because of the werewolf, Toto. In order to eliminate Toto, Monk kidnaps Rucy, Toto’s human girlfriend, and takes her to his castle beyond the Forest of Demons.
To save his girlfriend, Toto sets out on an adventure in the Forest of Demons, where he meets all kinds of monsters.
: When Toto kills a monster, he absorbs a spirit that transforms him into a mighty werewolf during a full moon. This transformation lasts for a limited amount of time, during which Toto can kill monsters easily. As a werewolf, Toto’s health is not affected by attacks, and no monster can stand in his way. Enjoy the experience of this powerful transformation!
2. Item Cube
: Items with different functions are found in the Item Cubes in each stage. These items allow Toto to attack monsters with a weapon, attack from a distance, or become invisible. There are a lot more items, too, all of which can be viewed in the game.
: Toto’s werewolf skills can be upgraded so that he can continue to fight monsters, which become more powerful over time. When Toto’s speed is upgraded, he can run at incredible speeds for a dash attack. When his transformation time is upgraded, the duration of playing as a werewolf becomes longer. Toto’s many other skills can also be upgraded. What skills you choose to focus on are entirely up to you. Have fun!
