Description of El Hijo - A Wild West Tale

As a six-year-old,
“El Hijo”
must always sneak past the dangers of his world. As he overcomes his challenges, he gains self-confidence, becomes more cunning and, along with it, finds more schemes to get past his foes. His epic journey will lead him through a remote monastery, a harsh and unforgiving stretch of desert, and a frontier town rife with crime and villainy.
The journey begins, when a farmer and her son are attacked by bandits who raze their farm to the ground. The mother decides to leave the boy at a secluded monastery to protect him. However, the place doesn’t feel right and he plans his escape.
“El Hijo - A Wild West Tale”
is a non-violent stealth game in which you rely on the mischievous, playfulness of a young child. Using the shadows to his advantage is the core element of the game, as “El Hijo” will often have to hide. Without needlessly adding new mechanics, the gameplay is extended naturally, as variations of existing mechanics are gradually introduced and then combined to increase the challenge. These twists on familiar mechanics are often a product of the varied, increasingly dangerous environments that “El Hijo” must traverse to reach his ultimate goal.

    Crashes on my device for no apparent reason. If you're thinking of buying this game, you may want to think twice. I would suggest that you wait for some time before purchasing as this is still an early version of the game. Concept is great, I was able to play for a few minutes, the tutorial, and it is looking very interesting. So yeah, this game may blow up pretty soon once all the early issues are fixed.

    A decent port. The PC/gamepad control is obviously better, but the touch controls are okay. Love it that the devs put in option for Static D-pad, us Static D-pad homies appreciate it. An option for custom placement would be great, but the game comes 3 pre-configured button placement that should satisfy most players. Came across a Bug. Stage: Balneary; Got caught at the exact moment I inspired a kid. When I respawned, the onscreen controls disappeared and I had to restart game.

    Ill give this a 5 star if we fix the controller issue. The controller only works on the menu but not ingame.

    So far looks like a great game. Always willing to support makers of premium games without in app purchases. Would like to ask developers to continue to update and maintain game in the future, thank you
