Gorogoa crafts its inventive, sliding-tile puzzles and magical world with a graceful simplicity across a compact but fulfilling adventure. The excitement of solving each puzzle may be lost on a repeat playthrough, but its hand-drawn art and clever payoffs are no less satisfying to watch unfold again and again. Gorogoa manages to say so much without uttering a single word, endowing it with a mystery that invites a more attentive, thoughtful revisit — and one that I was more than happy to accept.

Gorogoa has a great style, but the puzzles aren't satisfactory and its narrative is too ambiguous to leave behind any lasting impact

While it is short – it took me nearly an hour to reach the end – Gorogoa is worth a second and third trip not because there are new challenges to test, but because it gives me a chance to truly appreciate the clockwork-like precision of the puzzle design and the magnificent hand-drawn artwork found in every frame. It also gives me a chance to try and figure out just what the hell is happening in the story. This may be the fuzziest narrative I've ever had to tackle, open to a great many different interpretations, but that's just part of the game's elegance and brilliance. Even without understanding it, I can still safely say Gorogoa is one of the best puzzle games to ever grace my iPad.

If you thrill in playing games that represent the sweat and tears of a developer, Gorogoa is a great game to purchase. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I found it supremely meditative.

Gorogoa's main problem lies with its outdated linear approach. It's a fantastic, distinctive looking game with a solid hook for progression through its puzzles, but it ironically doesn't take a lot of risks. If you want a good hour or so to play a unique puzzle game, Gorogoa will fill that void, but just don't expect it to do much more than that.

An original and different kind of puzzle, that comes wrapped in a gorgeus aesthetic. It lasts little more than the blink of an eye but... What a ride!

A unique puzzler that doesn't last for long, but its worth every second it gives us.
