El Hijo for PC, iOS and AND is a stealth game in spaghetti western settings. It has been developed by Honig studio.


El Hijo’s story is set in the Wild West of 19th century, though creators did not want stick to historical truth. Instead, they bet on mythological and exaggerated vision of those times, based on movies directed by maestro Sergio Leone.

We play as a six-year-old boy, a titular El Hijo (Spanish for “son”), whose father went missing. He decides to find his parent, and his journey starts with escaping an orphanage run by monks. He must then cross the desert filled with strange monsters in order to reach the town ruled by a ruthless gang of gunslingers.

Game mechanics

PC, iOS and AND’s version of El Hijo is a classic stealth game. Quite obviously, the boy can’t threat adult cowboys and other opponent’s. This means we must prioritize not getting detected by enemies. This we achieve by using coverage, hiding in the dark, sneaking behind their backs and using environmental objects to distract their attention.

Our task is made easier thanks to the user interface, which always precisely shows enemies’ field of vision. Additionally, we are given a vast arsenal of items and gadgets that help us finish tasks.

Technical aspects

El Hijo presents the world with isometric view and offers attractive visuals using shades of ochre, a cartoon-like style with its simple shapes and sharp contrasts.
