Nour: Play With Your Food is a bold, entrancing and often inspired little collection of interactive, food-based vignettes with a greater focus on exploring colour, form and sound than any real gastronomical ideas. It's occasionally awkward, and will probably disappoint anyone looking for an actual game amongst its fleeting distractions, but it's worth a look in for the vibes alone.

Describing Nour is difficult. It’s a toy. It’s fun. It’s weird and it definitely doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it’s perfect for that. But it’s also probably not going to be for everyone while also somehow being for everyone. I feel everyone should try it. It’s not a huge game, it’s certainly no Starfield or Baldur’s Gate 3, but it’s one hell of a unique experience that I can’t recommend enough. What Terrifying Jellyfish have achieved here is special and I really cannot wait to see what they cook up next.

Nour: Play with Your Food is a deliciously-vibrant smorgasbord of physics-based interactions.

However, Nour is more a quick snack than a filling main course. For us, it's like a packet of crisps; lots of flavour and satisfying while it lasts, but it's all over very quickly. You can nosh through this game in an hour or two, after which you're given more ways to mess with each level, but there's little reason to return for seconds. It's a neat novelty, it makes solid use of the DualSense's features, and it looks and sounds great. Ultimately, though, it didn't hold our attention for long. Of course, everyone's taste buds are different, so you may enjoy toying with this endlessly, but for us, it's no more than a yummy appetiser.

Nour: Play With Your Food is an interactive work of art that lets you create your own playful, vibrant and artistic images, with an inviting soundtrack that's all packaged in a cozy game you can take at your own pace, but it ultimately feels lacking and the gameplay loop just didn't ever feel enticing enough.
