Honig Studios and HandyGames are bringing their wholesome spaghetti-western stealth game El Hijo to mobile this month. Coming to both iOS and Android devices on January 25th, the charming title will task players with sneaking around and distracting opponents with toys to escape a monastery.

In El Hijo, players will step into the shoes of a little kid on an important quest to save his mother from evil forces. You'll have to figure out how to get past outlaws using non-violent means, because who says there's no room for innocence in the wild west? The family-friendly and award-winning title features imaginative playfulness as your main weapon, with shadows used as valuable tools to enable you to hide your way to success.

As a curious six-year-old, you'll use your wits and resourcefulness to explore everything from frontier towns to vast deserts, as well as solve environmental puzzles to help you progress through the game. Of course, all this transpires in the midst of a gripping narrative as a boy does whatever it takes to search for and free his mother.

With full controller support, El Hijo will soon be available to download on the iOS App Store or on the Google Play Store for Android devices on January 25th. It's a premium title that costs $9.99 a pop or your local equivalent.
