Critic Reviews for Donut County

Donut County is a short, entertaining tale of a trash panda who just wants a sweet quadcopter.

It may be a very short diversion, but Donut County is a delight. It's absolutely brimming with personality, has a killer soundtrack and visual aesthetic, and is based on an irresistible gameplay hook. I'd have loved more, but I guess I'll just settle for playing through it again.

Short and simple, Donut County is absolutely sublime.

The perfect way to pass a couple of hours, but it will leave you craving more game and a box of Krispy Kremes.

Donut County is as simple as it is charming, and the story conceit pulling you along is light and enjoyable

Donut County is high on charm but short on substance; a game about holes that doesn't quite feel whole.

Katamari-likes are not quite a genre, but Donut County makes a case that it should be. Its inspiration is clear, and it takes the toy-like nature of its vision farther with a resonate message at its center. Moving around a hole and consuming all the low-poly things that lie in your path never really gets old from a mechanical perspective, even if the scripted scenarios do upon a replay from its level select. Donut County may not only make you hungry for donuts, it'll make you hungry for supporting your local family-run shops too.

Donut County is as charming and funny as it is inventive and beautiful. It excels at what it sets out to do --there's never been a better hole simulator in video game history. But underneath its colorful scenery and intuitive gameplay is an experience that feels like its inches away from true greatness.
