Official description

BOH is a unique retro-flavoured puzzle-riddled maze game spiced up with thrilling action.
You move in claustrophobic, mysterious, dangerous battlefields searching for the Evil Masters, who throw countless enemies at you until you discover and face them in the final battle. Although your quests are made slightly less hard by the power-ups scattered all around, carrying out the missions demands lots of concentration and quick reflexes.

With BOH the fun never ends: new missions can be added anytime and you can even create your own! And, as if that was not enough, you can also customize entirely its audio-visual aspect!

BOH has been created with lots of passion and care to offer, with its oldschool style, a fascinatingly different videogaming experience.

Comment

The game claims it isn't a shooter, and although it has significant elements besides shooting, most of the time is spent actually shooting an endless stream of enemies that is quite clearly pointed out to be endless. The game suggests ignoring the enemies and just exploring, but this makes it impossible to actually win the game since the enemies are so numerous and there aren't that many health pickups to deal with them.
