VGChartz's Evan Norris: "Publisher Graffiti Games sent out a press release on April 1 for Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion, but despite the timing and unlikely name it was not an April Fool's joke. No, Turnip Boy and his scandalous financial problems are very real, housed in a diverting Zelda-like action-adventure game. Thanks to some fun characters, breezy pacing, and a handful of entertaining boss battles, it's not bad. Unfortunately, there's just not much to the game. Its mechanics are basic, its dungeons and puzzles in short supply, and the whole thing ends just as it's getting good."
