Critic Reviews for ChromaGun

There just isn't a whole lot to say outside of what's already been said. ChromaGun is a competent puzzler that's only firing on a few cylinders and not much has changed in the several years since its launch. If you haven't pulled the trigger yet and are an avid puzzle fan the VR-ification is the excuse you need, just don't expect a whole lot.

ChromaGun is, for the most part, a great port, but it doesn't fix issues like the difficulty spikes that have always been present in the game. There's some truly excellent puzzle design in the sharp looking test environments that will keep you entertained, in what is likely the closest thing to Portal that the Nintendo Switch will ever see.

ChromaGun answers a question nobody wanted answered: What if Portal made a few really terrible game design decisions that soured the whole experience? Don't get me wrong, ChromaGun is not without enjoyment. It certainly has its moments. At $19.99, it may be worth buying. But it could have been so much better.

6 / 10

Very high complexity, the lack of a strong narrator behind the scenes, the high cost of mistakes and the general monotony can leave many fans of the genre exceptionally disappointed. If you are ready to accept such problems and hungry for Portal-like games, then you can add one point to our final score. Otherwise, you can just just skip ChromaGun and pay attention to more interesting new games.

Your color mixing produces clean, gorgeous results that feel like they should be on the set of some ultra-modern music video.

Chromagun is videogame love letter to Portal, with an entirely different and unique puzzle mechanic. It may have made a bad first impression in its pre-release version, but eventually won me over. It's a game I have a lot of confidence in recommending to puzzle game fans.

Yes, you could easily dismiss this as 'just another Portal clone', but it's more than that - it uses its own original gameplay mechanics to provide some genuinely thoughtful, tricky puzzles.

Overall, ChromaGun is a charming puzzle game with all the wits and humour of its bigger ‘stepbrother', Portal.
