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. =/

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.

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?

THIS MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS!
I was very excited to purchase and play this game, but was incredibly disappointed by the end. It only has about six easy puzzles to figure out and a boring storyline. You learn nothing about Gomo except for the fact that he lost his dog. You don't know what he is exactly, why everything is underground, why these aliens took his dog in the first place, why you randomly travel back into time to nuke a town (the only humurous and non-irritating part of the game to me), why above ground is like a farm type of area...the unanswered questions really are endless. He moves very slowly with every movement which is irritating and the sound effects are absolutely horrible. All of the sound effects literally sounded like the creators made them with their mouths. For example, when Gomo falls, it sounds like a literal whistle noise someone is making. I would suggest not this gameto anyone. It was a complete waste of time and money. Oh and one more thing, the ending credits are very strange. And it's not even a funny strange really; just a super weird "this game just made me mad and now I have to deal with what the creators think is humorous" strange.

An okay game. Bought it on the summer steam sale for $2.71 - thankfully.
Whole game takes you a little over an hour, if you have common sense. I'm at 1.2 hours and I've beaten the game - it's not much of a challenge, a half dozen puzzles you need to work your way through and that's about it.

A lot of good work in the game, but it lacks substance - it's a really fast game that isn't worth $8.

The whole thing just screams "Baby's First Java Based Game" and it is not so much Point & Click as it is Click & Wait-until-you-can-click-again. This might interest a 6 or 7 year old child if you have one lying around but my advice is to save your cash, not even worth it on sale.

A very short but fun point & click adventure. Reminds me a bit of Samorost and Machinarium.

This game did a great job of keeping your attention without flashy gimics. It had substance and a wide variety of puzzles to keep you thinking and enjoying the story. I loved every minute of game play and commend the makers of this game on a job well done.

Unfortunately, the game is boring and simplistic. Also, the sounds the main character makes don't fit the overall atmosphere and contradict all of his visual 'cuteness'.

When I downloaded this game, I was hoping for something like Machinarium, which I enjoyed a whole bunch, but instead I got a poorly drawn boring wannabe of an adventure game. Puzzles are simplistic, and instead of being puzzling they are actually just frustrating. Much of the content is redundant, such as having a door and a button right next to that door to open that door. All this does is make the game more frustrating. The little cutscenes and animations are meant to be cute but instead they are annoying, they detract from the flow of the game, making the game a stuttering experience. One might argue that they are meant to be an eye candy, but it will take a whole lot more than just a few annoying instances of so-called "eye candy" to make this game look good. Overall, the metacritic score (currently 50) is a very accurate description of this game. Nothing to love but nothing to really hate. It is incredibly mediocre and definitely not worth the full asking price. I will enjoy deleting it from my computer after I am finished with it.

I would consider this more of an interactive cartoon than an actual game, even as far as point-and-clicks go, which I'm a big fan of. There is no challenge to the game and the only redeeming quality is the humerous interactions the character has with the environment and the surroudings itself as well as the attractive artwork. I beat the whole "game" in about an hour and spent a few minutes on the tedious, identical bonus minigames. If you feel the need to check this one out I HIGHLY recommend getting it on sale. A big sale. Like next-to-free cheap.

Gomo is more an interractive movie than a game. You interract by clicking stuff such as direction to take, items to take/use so can you can slowly advance in your quest. The story is very short, like 1h but you can unlock bonus content during the quest by doing certain things. I have succeded to unlock 1 bonus of 3 and i am not planning to try it, sorry. I got this game from a cheap bundle but i would not recommend to buy for the full price of 8$. On the other side, Gomo is a cute and funny character! :)

This is a difficult one to review as the game is very charming and well made.

My complaint with it is that it's way too short and far too easy. All in all it's more like watching a cartoon than playing a game.

But the game gets you smiling very often by using it's special type of humour, like when ... uhum ... i don't wanna spoil you here.

After all you get some replay value though, because there are three bonus games that are hidden in the game itself. During my first playthrough I only achieved the last one. And from that the only thing I can say you should definitely not await the bonus games to be any less hillarious than the main game.

Somehow this game achieves to take itself and the genre absolutely not serious in a way few games do so one could call it almost art. And the style of the graphics even underline this. It's made with love and you can feel it the whole game long ... well ... at least as long as it will last ...

I think you should get it on discount.

Steam REALLY needs a 'meh' hand. I really liked this game, really, I did. It reminded me of Mechanarium and Samorost. It's stylish, it has great music and the puzzles are nice. It's just not worth eight dollars. Maybe $3.99, but not eight. It's short, and the game almost plays itself at points. There's a part in the begining where you bother a guy watching TV. There's no player interaction, just Gomo messing with some guy. It adds nothing to the plot or playability. I would call this Gamer's First Point and Click.
There are some really nice background events, however. Bugs creep, guys sled, Little Red and the Wolf have a lightsaber battle and ride off into the sunset... it is a visually attractive game. With a bit of tweeking this could be a great game. Six and a half stolen cheese wheels out of ten.

It's been a long time since I was so dissappointed with a point-and-click game. THe animations take forever and the story is virtually non-existant. It took about an hour to finish but I wanted it to end sooner. I've played better flash point-and-click games free on the Internet.

This was just not worth my time or money.

Well well well... I'm very disappointed.
Even though it takes only about an hour to finish Gomo, it is more than enough to get bored. The character takes AGES to move around and to pick/use items, which is fine the first few times because animations are cute and everything, but then it's just irritating. There are about only 5 or 6 puzzles in the whole game and they couldn't be easier (and I even made sure to uncheck the default "easy mode" option). No fun at all.
Also, there's no plot or narrative whatsoever, just a bunch of non-sense randomness. Again, it's funny and cute the first couple times, but then it gets old REAL quick.

Fun, simple point and click adventure game. I will be interested to see what else this studio can make with a bigger budget in the future.

Gomo is an adventure game where you go on a journey to find youre dog but will you want to play through that journey ? In Gomo you plays as Gomo an evil Alien kidnaps Gomo's dog and wants a crystal in exchange for the dog so Gomo sets out on a journey to save his dog from the alien. So how is this game ? Its honestly quite underatted and the bad reviews judge this game on its lenght so im gonna point out everything that i liked and disliked in this game. The game looks great and has a cute art style which i simply love. The puzzles are simple and are quite easy to figure out. The game also has a charming charecters designs that are a joy to look at and the game in itself is a blast to play through. The game also has some issues. The game is incredibly short clocking in at an hour. Some minor glitches but thats pretty much it. Overall Gomo is a great point and click adventure game that i suggest you check out if youre a fan of adventure games. I give Gomo a 7.5/10
