Rather, like the best roguelikes, it begs you to try again. You feel like you failed Ikk when he dies, not that the game was cheap or punishing. For $10, you could do a whole lot worse on the Switch. And if you like hard, side-scrolling action games – this is a no brainer.
With its charming soundtrack, beautiful artstyle and challenging combo system, GoNNER will grab you and it won't let you go. Get ready to spend hours trying to beat your score or competing on its leaderboards.

Like The Binding of Isaac like I love him, so this is definitely a Must-Have from the world of Roguelike games, and you as a fan will appreciate it highly, but if you're not a fan of this genre, why not join, dark, frightening levels of the surreal world can push and pull you into it's gloomy, but terribly exciting adventure small IICA and a huge whale named Sully.

Whether you will choose to buy GoNNER or not is much more of a product of the game experience that you're looking for than how well it executes on its design. If you're a fan of challenging arcade-style run-and-gun shooting with a variety of selectable play configurations (and keep in mind the slight pricetag) I have an extremely easy time recommending it. The aggravation of dying in the current run is almost always quickly followed by the "just one more try" impulse and the relatively short length of an average run makes it even more compelling to play in between other things given the portability of the Switch. If the look or the description of the gameplay doesn't appeal to you I don't know if there's anything that can be said to change your mind. It is a game that is extremely comfortable being what it is and generally executing on its vision very successfully, the only question is if you have the inclination and the nerve to give it a shot.
Maybe there's more to GoNNER than its high difficulty after the second level, but I will never find out.

GoNNER is perfect for any gamer who has pumped hours into the most difficult platformers at the arcades in the 90s.
GoNNER is a great introduction to the roguelike genre. It may be short, but that doesn’t mean you will blast through it quickly even though its high difficulty may seem a bit too challenging for some. It plays and looks great on the TV screen and it fits nicely as a portable title.
While GoNNER doesn't branch off from most roguelikes with its item systems and level designs, it's still an engaging game that pulls you back in despite the difficulty level. The soundtrack, the throbbing neon colors, and the sense of accomplishment make this title well-worth the money.
A great gateway title for roguelikes, and a great game on its own rights.
While not a perfect game, GoNNER will leave us a good taste in terms of gameplay and gunplay. With a good variety of weapons and enemies, an eye-catching visual style and a well measured difficulty -even if sometimes it goes over the top-, it becomes an excellent recommendation for fans of this genre
