    + A fantastically creative and unique game in terms of visuals and game feel
    + Flawlessly fluid mechanics that affect a dynamic and beautiful world
    ? Very oblique gameplay that for some might be easy and for some might be totally impossible to figure out
    - Fairly chaotic in its progression and somewhat difficult to navigate if seeking total completion

    I just shouldn't like this game, but I do.

    Alike Flower, it offers a kind of endless game-play of discovery. Within 5 minutes I was not impressed, but once the game opens up and becomes more strange and wonderful, it jumped from playing it because it was a free PS+ title, to genuinely enjoying the experience and going back to it a number of times already. The music is a major factor

    The music is a major factor in that, it keeps tempo well and installs that feeling of discovery when you glide through something that builds the sound. It's really a waste of time, but really really enjoyable with it.

    Hohokum is one of the most artistic and relaxing games I've ever played and it is a joy to watch. It's very interesting and it has a unique flavor that's all its own. The game is almost like interacting with a work of art, swimming around and finding out what to do and what you can interact with. It encourages exploration but without pushing the user toward any specific objectives, whichHohokum is one of the most artistic and relaxing games I've ever played and it is a joy to watch.

It encourages exploration but without pushing the user toward any specific objectives, which was a refreshingly different pace. I would recommend anyone to pick this up and try it. My first hour felt like 15 minutes just because I got lost in watching the gorgeous visuals, listening to the amazing soundtrack and exploring the Hohokum world! It's definitely a game that feels like flower, sound shapes etc., and it deserves similar praise! Expand

    It's rarely short of absurd charm or interesting things to do. [Oct 2014, p.88]

    A wonderful example of what can be achieved when developers dispense with tradition. [Nov 2014, p.66]

    A gorgeous explore 'n' experiment experience. Can be too directionless which can harsh one's buzz. [October 2014, p83]
