I brought it on a discount pack and I'm not a hardcore point and click player, the lack of feedback from some puzzles can bring some frustration, but it's gomo is funny character and the game has some humoristic twists, if you are the imaginative type the world you walk through makes you wonder and question "wtf is going on here?"

Feels a little bit like a cheaper Machinarium game, but it is not a bad game at all. 6/10

I really like this stampunk-inspired platform!
It's kind of easy but very well made, the graphic is lovely and the music is nice too.
I recommend it to gamers who like artistically-inspired games.

Funny game but definitely too short - you'll finish it in about 1 hour. Keep that in mind if you're going to buy it.

Puzzles aren't challenging. 70% of the time you will find yourself just waiting untill gomo comes.
Also... It's basically rip-off from "Machinarium".
Wouldn't buy for full price.. Didn't enjoy the game..

TL;DR: Gomo is a short but sweet little adventure game, offering adorable graphics coupled with a silly story and very low puzzle difficulty. Best suited to younger gamers.

Full Review: Gomo is a sweet little point-and-click adventure in which you control Gomo, a cuddly lil' dude who gets his pet dog stolen by a mean old alien overlord! The only chance of return for our poached pooch is a mysterious red crystal (naturally imbued with mystical powers of course), which our alien overlord is actually very happy to swapsies with us. So off we embark, on a quest to find this crystal thingy by any bizarre means necessary.

Now while "by any bizarre means necessary" includes zipping down garbage chutes, out-smarting security robots and firing atomic warheads across alternate dimensions, Gomo's gameplay is actually highly linear, and the solution for how you're supposed to do all these crazy things is usually pretty straightforward. You also have just three inventory slots for objects (which are rarely used), and each "scene" will only offer one or two puzzles to solve - most of which you'll understand as soon as you see them. So I get the impression that Gomo is probably aimed at younger players, and reckon the last reviewer's description of it as an "interactive animation" has it spot on.

I am personally a big fan of point-and-clicks, so I was happy enough playing through to the end and really enjoyed Gomo's silly humour. However, after a while I started to get frustrated with the character's movement. You often have to click multiple times simply to get Gomo to cross the scene, as he needs to be in precisely the right place for you to perform certain interactions. Because of this you're often left confused as to where your character should be standing simply to progress to the next area, even though you know exactly what to do. However I doubt children would be put off by this.

All in all? If you see this game on sale and have a younger gamer or two to entertain, maybe pick it up for a rainy day. Otherwise I personally feel there are far better "low difficulty" point-and-click titles on Steam on the moment, such as Detective Grimoire, Broken Age, Samorost and so many others.

It's a well know fact that dogs are man's best friend. A lesser know one is they're also pals with strange sack doll people, who don't take so kindly to having their pet kidnapped by demanding aliens. But what are friends for besides rescuing each other from extra terrestrial life, while dooming the planet in the process, and thus Gomo sets off on a mission to steal a powerful crystal and save his canine buddy from the slimy captive. Unfortunately he isn't able to save his game as well.

Daedalic's Gomo is a much smaller game than the developer is used to, and this emphasis on accessible, simplified mechanics envelops the whole of the 1-2 hour experience. I'm fairly forgiving of short games, but in this case the lack of content and interactivity is rather shocking. Significant portions of the game amount to little more than cutscenes, with "gameplay" effectively revolving around clicking the right of the screen to keep things moving. When you do come across a puzzle, it's so basic and quick to solve that it almost feels insulting and a waste of time, forcing you to momentarily slow down and wait for animations to unfold before progressing to the next equally tedious moment.

Gomo isn't a hopelessly bad game, in fact numerous parts are rather charming and enjoyable to watch, but it's design is painfully shallow and ultimately, entirely forgettable. The significant lack of interactivity leaves it in an awkward position feeling more like an extended animated short than an actual game, but the few entertaining moments are not at all enough to carry the experience by itself, which ends before you even realize it's started or has any chance of becoming more than a dismissible novelty.

You know those copyright evading knock-off toys? Like that toy robot your grandpa bought for you than can pretzel its way into a truck cab and is called Optimally Prime Transporter?

This game was okay. It is certainly entertaining enough to keep you engaged for the 60-90 minutes it takes to complete.

But it still feels like Machinarium. A lot. Only difference is that someone took all the creativity and charm of Machinarium, and replaced it with an antropormorphic condom that makes you wish you were playing Machinarium instead.

I found this game incredibly tedious. The little animations of the main character were cute, the first couple times. Eventually, waiting for him to pick up items or shuffle slowly across the screen just so i could click the "go further over there" arrow became tiresome. It's a cute premise, but the game itself was rather boring. =/

For some reason I had low expectations of this game, but it pleasantly surprised me.

At first glance this game gave me a “Samorost” meets “Machinarium” kind of feel.
Machinarium in sense of the art style and even character design, but Samorost in terms of length and quality (Free web game/demo kind of feeling).

Despite the first impression I got from it, I got a lot more time out of it then I was expecting and did actually enjoy it. I thought it was going to be a 20 minute kind of game, but I managed just over 80 minutes on this. Which I don’t think is too bad.

In terms of story, point and click games don’t usually lack. I’m not saying this game lacks story, it’s just a lot simpler than most point and click games I have played.
The general story to this game is that your dog has been kidnapped by aliens and you have to get him back by finding and trading a crystal with the aliens.
It’s nothing too special of a story but it was simple and it worked.

This is one of those games that leave out dialog all together and just use simple sound effects and noises. The sound quality itself isn’t that great and I’m not too much of a fan of that whole approach although some games can make it work. This game is somewhere down the middle for me.
In terms of using spoken sound effects and noises for people talking, I can usually stand that. But using the same kind of mouth noises and sound effects for more general things like walking or to emphasis gestures kind of annoys me. I’m not sure why, maybe just the sheer childlikeness of it?
Luckily for me, this game is charming in other ways. So much so that it didn’t really bother me.

The art style is nice. It’s cute, and it definitely adds to the charm of the game. Throughout the game there are background noises/animations that did make me smile to myself a few times.

In terms of puzzles this game is very basic. The puzzles are pretty easy but the game itself is still fun despite that.

All things mentioned so far, I think it’s important to mention now that maybe this game is better aimed at younger audiences. Although I did enjoy it, it’s very simple in many ways so if you are looking for a challenge and a time sinker, this isn’t likely it.

All in all I liked it. It was a fun way to kill a bit of time. If you are a fan of the point and click genre and are looking for something else, maybe give this a go.


TL;DR : Fun, light-hearted, little point and click game maybe aimed at younger audiences. It’s charming, cute and a fun way to kill an hour or two.

I bought this for my kid and it was a good buy.

I read a few other reviews and people seem to complain about the slow pace, lack of action and the puzzles being too simple. Well that may be so if you are a hardcore gamer. But for a 6 years old child the puzzles were just right (I had to help with a couple but mostly he could figure everything out himself). The aesthetics of the game are nice, there is nothing that wouldn't be ok for PG rating and the character himself was found to be cute.

So I recommend it if you have a kid or if you like casual games of this sort (point-and-click puzzler with nice hand drawn aesthetics).

If you're looking for an action packed game, I don't know what you're even doing here :)

The game is not very long but it is a lot of fun. The puzzels are very logical but some still take thought. The art style is great and it gives a good laugh. Overall i like the game and i would say it is worth the money if you want a quick laugh or something fun to pass the time with.

A simple find-the-clicky-spot type of adventure. Aliens have stolen the dog of the protagonist, who looks like a middle-aged sackboy. A bunch of totally random shenanigans follow. Nothing really makes sense or coalesces into a rational narrative, but neither is anything really that funny, quirky or zany. It's just weird for the sake of being weird.

Gomo feels like an animation showcase: Most of the time you're waiting for a lengthy non-interactive walking/climbing sequence to complete so that you can start looking for the next hotspot. Surprisingly mind-numbing gameplay for a game categorized as a puzzler. The only thing that puzzles my mind is what were the designers smoking when they decided this poor man's Samorost was something they wanted to do?

Full review: http://www.cublikefoot.com/review/gomo-game-review/

Gomo, a point-and-click adventure about a journey to get a best friend back. I have not played a proper point-and-click game in a while, but this was quite a treat.

Gomo is a small game, and I mean that story-wise and resolution-wise. The game does not run at widescreen, which was fairly annoying. I would have liked to see the game running at 1080p. Gomo is like a lot of other point-and-click games. It consists of a variety of primitive puzzles, some being stupidly easy, with some others taking a bit more time. These puzzle elements made the game a bit more enjoyable in a gameplay sense and I enjoyed them.

There's not much else to the game, it is a point-and-click adventure after all. There's a little exploration to it and the game contains no violence. You don't even need to be literate to play the game, it's very simplistic. That's not necessarily a bad thing, it'll just be more appealing to those looking for a nice, short game.

The game conveys a nice story without the use of language. It's quite neat actually. The story is incredibly generic, but the way it is conveyed makes it much more powerful. Gomo is searching for his best friend, who was taken from him. He'll end up going far beyond what players would expect in order to get his best friend back. The game's art style was lovely, as was the music. The music was very atmospheric and immersive, when combined with the backgrounds and art displayed throughout Gomo's adventure.

Overall, Gomo is a short, but nice adventure that appeals to point-and-click fans with little time on their hands. It combines a charming story with great music and art into one small, enjoyable package. I recommend Gomo for any point-and-click fans.

It's extremely simplistic and the experiencie is not as rewarding or attractive to justify that, unlike in similar games like Windosill or Samorost. Just grab it if you have some kids around the house or if it's on a good sale.
