A hefty and uncompromising challenge for those who would welcome it, but a tad too unforgiving for newcomers to the genre.
Having a game that doesn't force feed the player anything is just a unique enough experience to merit checking Nongünz out on its own. Beyond that though, there's enough good things and few enough bad things (most of which is not being able to shoot up, which is a really big problem for something that seems so small) that this a genuinely entertaining gaming experience.
With a number of unlockables and different ways to improve your chances of survival, there are plenty of ways to play this title. Though the initial learning curve can be somewhat tough to get around it is worth as Nongunz is a satisfying title when you get the hang of it. Of course, it is not a game that will click with everyone but if it does you will absolutely love it.
Nongünz delivers fast action packed platforming with roguelike mechanics and a punishing difficulty.
Nongünz is really something special; a shooter with brains that's not only haunting, challenging and utterly compelling but, thanks to its procedural nature, is hugely replayable.
Nongunz is not for the faint hearted. If you feel you're worthy of the challenge, jump right in.
