    If my biggest complaint about a game is that I desperately want a sequel, that should be a sign that it’s doing something right. I don’t know whether one of those will come, but even if it does, I’m still glad that Donut County’s release on new platforms means that I — and, I hope, many other people — will get to chance to either experience it again, or experience it for the first time. Regardless of whether camp you fall in, it’s fun enough that it won’t disappoint.

It's very easygoing and almost never left me stumped. The down side though is that the game is quite short and the levels aren't long enough. I would have loved to see the hole mechanics deployed on a larger scale, giving you the chance to swallow buildings and entire cities. The game just never seems to reach a level of insanity I know it's capable of.
    Outside of levels there's a decent amount of dialogue taking place between the residents of donut county and it can be humorous but personally I wasn't laughing out loud at any points.
    It's a fun game but only worth it if you can get it on sale.

The writing is hilarious and each character is charming and unique. The world looks bright and colourful and even though the gameplay is quite repetitive, I think Donut County is the perfect game to play on one dark, cold Christmas evening.

    For more indie game reviews on the Nintendo Switch google Switch Indie Fix.
