Bizarre, abstract, and completely beautiful. GNOG's puzzles aren't difficult but they are strangely entrancing, especially in VR.
Gnog is a relaxing puzzle experience. None of the boxes make your brain hurt, but each offers a rewarding set of engaging tasks
GNOG is thus an imaginative, worthwhile creation, unlikely to win over non-puzzle fans but certain to at the very least charm most everyone else. If you do own PlayStation VR, my gut tells me you'll want to experience GNOG regardless. If not, its mere $15 asking price is, in my view, still plenty justified.
While a few of the levels feel mechanically underdeveloped or otherwise don't quite reach their full potential, these lesser puzzles tend to make up for their shortcomings with a strong audio-visual theme or an entertaining premise. And although GNOG is brief enough to be a single-sitting game, that length feels about right, give or take another puzzle or two to really round out the package. Most everything is well-thought-out, polished, and delightful, so even with those quibbles, there's a lot to love.
There's nothing quite like GNOG out there in design terms , with each monster puzzle box giving the impression of being a toy. The VR aspect is a really nice option that enhances the experience too. However, while GNOG looks and sounds great, it doesn't generally offer much difficulty, instead happy to almost point out the answers to you. A charming but short and simple puzzle game, it's nice and accessible to everyone.
Gnog is an extremely relaxing game about fiddling with surreal puzzle boxes. Its short length is well worth the price of admission. Buy it.
GNOG is a game that defies explanation. It is a weird, abstract puzzle game that has a sense of play and about it, but ultimately leaves you wanting a little more.
It's just simply a wonderful creation that you absolutely should buy and play. It's brief – the nine levels will perhaps take you a couple of hours – but a splendid couple of hours they are. Daft, fun, exuberant and very pretty, it captures a sense of joy like little else.
Gnog is a unique puzzler that combines truly great puzzles with a fantastic visual experience. The game is short but sweet, and is perfect for kids due to the easy controls and vibrant colours.
It's not so much that I was left wanting more, but rather that I wasn't fully satiated with what I had.
