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.
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.
GoNNER is perfect for any gamer who has pumped hours into the most difficult platformers at the arcades in the 90s.
If you're looking for an honest - yet brutal - challenge and you're not afraid of getting lost in a quirky and abstract dimension, dive in and join the water drop Ikk in his procedural adventure: monsters, sweat, lots of swear words and many satisfactions will be waiting for you in this fierce platformer/shooter hybrid with a roguelike structure (one that actually works really well with the Nintendo Switch philosophy).

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.
Just a little bit of handholding wouldn't have gone amiss, but spend some time working out what GoNNER is about and you'll find a dark yet warm hearted bullet ballet.
If a list were to be created of games available on Switch that make you say “oh, just one more go” for approximately four hours, this would sit right on top. An addictive, beautifully presented experience that will bring you hours of joy/frustration, GoNNER seems a perfect match for the Nintendo Switch console – offering a gameplay style suited to both quick bursts of play and longer, dedicated sessions.Possibly too tricky for some players, this game requires a lot of determination, offering little respite - expect to be thrown back to the start countless times as you try to progress. If you're the type who enjoys a serious challenge we recommend giving this title a go; it is one that will reward those who stick with it the most.
