Adventure Gamers (Dec 07, 2015)
Physically fragile but heroic nevertheless, Bulb Boy is an endearing lead, and the awful odds stacked against him invest you in ensuring his success. The intelligent, frequently action-oriented game design maintains palpable urgency without ever being too physically demanding, and the repulsive, brutal monsters keep you entrenched deep in the nightmare. The stylistic choice of using monochromatic screens and cartoony art works fabulously due to the detailing and adept animation, and combined with the music and sound effects delivers an immersive sensory experience. Bulb Boy’s innocence and love for his family amid the mayhem is the crux of this story, a tale of good versus evil, the power of light against encroaching darkness. Bulb Boy is quite evidently as much a labour of love for its developers as the adventure is for its hero, and is easily one of those awesome games that leave you yearning for more.

Bulb Boy è un punta e clicca di altissima qualità, e nonostante la breve durata riuscirà sicuramente a coinvolgervi e a lasciare il segno nel vostro curriculum di giocatori. Una direzione artistica di ottimo livello che mescola un design quasi infantile dei personaggi con un'atmosfera horror decisamente inquietante spinge il titolo -almeno per chi scrive- tra la top 10 del genere. Se volete farvi un enorme favore, non lasciatevi scoraggiare dal prezzo forse un po' troppo alto e giocatelo, non ne rimarrete delusi.

It feels odd calling a point & click horror game adorable, but that’s what Bulb Boy is. Heartwarming moments are mixed with gross-out details without any friction. The surreal story has plenty of twists and turns, and the puzzles are enjoyable to work out. This little indie title is truly a gem in its own special way.

IGN Italia (Oct 31, 2015)
Col suo speciale mix di orrore cartoon e dolcezza kawaii, Bulb Boy si dimostra esattamente quello che ci si potrebbe attendere da un punta & clicca di stampo indie: toni strampalati, atmosfera azzeccatissima, stile a palate e qualche ingenuità. Un'avventura grafica non per tutti (più per le modalità espressive che non per l'effettivo gameplay), che con tutta probabilità si farà adorare dalla nicchia di pubblico nostalgico e scapigliato a cui è destinata.

Just Adventure (Feb 06, 2016)
Bulb Boy is a bizarre adventure game that features a disturbing art style and creative puzzle solutions. It's simultaneously cute and gross, which makes for a unique playing experience unlike any seen in other adventure games. While it won’t provide much of a challenge, Bulb Boy’s strength lies in its clever use of its disturbing aesthetic to solve puzzles. It is a short game, but it’s a fun ride while it lasts. While certainly not the best game on the market, Bulb Boy has enough variety and style to warrant a playthrough.
