    Donut County is a singular experience that transcends its simple, but potent core mechanic thanks to its idiosyncratic humor, clever gameplay twists, and a gleeful sense of what makes swallowing the world into a hole so cathartic.

    Although it's a short experience, Donut County is enjoyable. The base desire to see everything destroyed by a simple, ever-expanding hole overtakes the lack of complicated mechanics, and the story is fun, whether you want something with or without some meaning attached. At the very least, Donut County is an experience that will stick with you for some time.

    Donut County won’t solve or illuminate that massive, multifaceted societal issue, but it will give you a chance to lay back, relax, and throw it down a hole.

    It may be a very short diversion, but Donut County is a delight. It’s absolutely brimming with personality, has a killer soundtrack and visual aesthetic, and is based on an irresistible gameplay hook. I’d have loved more, but I guess I’ll just settle for playing through it again.

    Like a donut, it's sweet and satisfying, but you're acutely aware that there's a hole in the middle of it.

The puzzles are not hard and it took me about two hours to beat it. I don't think that's wrong. It's like going to a cinema, you pay for the single experience. There is a cut scene after every level which allows characters to be more fleshed out and I warmed up to them. Even tough it's a short story, I really felt something after these two hours. The music and the artstyle really add to the whole experience. Expand

    When I first saw this game I thought, "Well, that looks weird and I will not play that".

Typically, I play larger, open-world games and shooters and "smaller" games like this one haven't really popped up on my radar.

    Having played this it has opened me up to indie games in general. I enjoyed this game. It is good fun to kick back and relax to. Some parts made me chuckle. The gameplay was engaging, not too taxing but not dull.

    Honestly, it was cool the time it lasted, but honestly it's just about as entertaining as your average mobile game in the long run.

    Donut County's goofiness is not entertaining enough to make up for how boring the gameplay is.
