  • Summary: Roogoo is an innovative and unusual 3D puzzle game that has players guide and stack different shaped blocks through various platforms to not only save planet Roo, but the entire Roogoo race. Roogoo tasks players with guiding meteors in the form of shaped blocks through a series of rotating disks as a means of saving planet Roo and the entire Roogoo race. If aligned correctly, the disks allow the blocks to reach the ground and scores are awarded. Various obstacles and enemies will impede the blocks’ movement and with the flow of meteor blocks steadily increasing as the game progresses, players will have to think on their feet to save the Roogoo and rack up seriously high scores.

  1. Solid block-fitting fun and only a tenner. Classic puzzle action. [Issue#9, p.60]
  2. Roogoo is a strange creature, combining cutesy childlike design and whimsical story with fiendish gameplay and a steep challenge curve. Stripping away the fluffy exterior reveals a meaty core that will satisfy even the healthiest of gaming appetite for the time it will take to finish.
  3. An engaging, if sometimes brain fizzing, option. [Sept 2008, p.114]
  4. It works, but finishing a stage tends to come as a blessed relief rather than something that makes you welcome the next challenge. [Sept 2008, p.89]

    So while Roogoo might look like a standard falling-block puzzler when you first lay your eyes on it, after taking it out for a spin for about an hour or so, its fun factor becomes apparent. It does a good job of keeping the gameplay fresh and increasingly challenging throughout the 45 stages.
  6. It’s easy to pick up and play, and hard to put down at first. However, after a few hours players will probably get a little tired of playing.
  7. While it does nothing spectacular, it has enough pretty colours and plain, shallow addictiveness to hold your attention for the two or three hours the game lasts. [Sept 2008, p.76]

    First thought after spending 15 minutes playing Roogoo: this game is so boring, it could be good for kids only. Then I realized it would be boring for kids too, because you keep doing the same thing again and again and again... and again... and again.
    There are no interesting goal, there are no twists, there are no achievements... yawn.
