Legendary game design Simon Phipps followed his work on the beloved Switchblade and Saint and Greavsie’s Football Trivia (among others) with Wolfchild, an autobiographical tale of a boy’s pursuit for happiness.
No, that’s not right. It’s actually an action game that takes inspiration from the likes of Strider and a billion other side-scrolling platformers. Despite being a little derivative in terms of gameplay, Wolfchild has heaps of style, and a fun, off-the-wall story to enjoy. Something of a forgotten gem, this one.
