  • Visually amazing but... Oct 12, 2018

    Ok, so basically the game is very beautiful with lovable, adorable characters and the game play is almost addicting BUT for a game that costs 4.99 you would expect it to last you a while, especially it being an indie title but that was not the case here sadly. The game is easily completable 2 times over in a single day if you wanted to. Not only that but the game play is more limited than i expected although i guess i should’ve expected that in story game. By “limited” i mean, i expected you to be able to free roam the whole town maybe after completing the story mode but that was not the case. After complaining the game you can replay past levels which are pretty short and not something i’ve ever felt like doing again. If a “free roam” feature was added, i think that would make this game something i could go back on and play every now and then. overall i would recommend this to a friend if only the price was much lower given its current version

    The game itself is fantastic and play smooth. The story pieces between the levels are fun and well done. By itself feels like an anti-katamari (i.e. you must make things fall into your hole to make it bigger). The only reason I'm only giving 4 stars is that while it is fun it is waaay to short. More levels please!
  • Amazing concept and the visual design is amazing!! Nov 9, 2018

    By Mimsopedia
    WE NEED MORE!! This game is so charming. It is has many cool aspects incorporated into the game that just stimulate the senses in a different way like puzzle solving, critical thinking, virtual escape room aspects. Each level is so cleverly designed and it never goes the way I thought it would and I love that. The music is perfect for relaxing after a long day and playing something that is stimulating yet not stressful. It is perfect to play with my 5 year old because he is just learning how to read simple sentences. The trashopedia is very clever and Donut County players can quote these witty and hilarious descriptions for years. This game can be taken very far with multiple bosses, a continued storyline, more levels, and gadget upgrades to solve puzzles with! This game is a vessel that can handle so much and developed upon even more and I hope the developers decide to continue the story! It ended too quickly for me. I felt like this was going in the direction of something like an old video game like Mario 64 or Banjo Kazooie, Donkey Kong, etc. My only complaint is that it ended much too quickly and I want to play this game all the time like Cooking Craze. We need Donut Country..! ...Donut WORLD!

    It's an interesting concept, but calling it a puzzle game is a bit of a stretch. The game is way too short for the regular asking price and doesn't seem to have much replay value. I personally didn't find the story all that engaging and found it irritating that there wasn't a way to skip the long dialogue.
  • A Pleasant, but Short-Lived Experience Feb 4, 2019

    By EverbrightENG
    Story-based mobile games have a pretty standard problem with post-game retention, or in other terms, the ability to keep the player entertained after the story is finished. For 4.99, you'd expect Donut County to tackle this issue, but it really doesn't. Donut County is an aesthetically pleasing game with neat mechanics and it excels in providing a fairly great experience. The problem is that the experience lasts no more than an hour and a half and there's very little replay value. The puzzles aren't very challenging despite the number of elements included in each level and the story itself relies more on being Quirky™️ than being well-written. Is it a bad game? Not by any means, it's just not something I feel happy about spending 5 dollars on. This is the type of game you download, play once, delete, and forget about for maybe five or six months until you find it again one day and play a level or two again out of boredom. That's not a five dollar experience for a mobile game in my eyes. So, overall? 3/5. An average score for an above-average game that seems like it thinks a bit too highly of itself.

    I was quite excited to play this game and waited a long time for it to come out. When it did, I had beaten it fairly quickly, in just two or three sessions, but don’t get me wrong. A short collection of levels doesn’t discredit how intricate and charming the base game truly is. Gathering around a campfire with fellow sink-hole-victims and learning about their whimsical backstories had me rather hooked on not only the cutscenes between actual gameplay, but the world I was introduced to interact in during the base gameplay. Everything about the game felt assembled flawlessly and revealed itself in a way that built upon the last mechanic. The puzzles themselves weren’t particularly challenging, however, deemed themselves as just the right amount of rewarding. Although I wish that there was more to do and see in this vibrant, low-poly atmosphere the developer has created, what is offered is seamlessly constructed in a unique, fresh sandbox with plenty of friendly faces to meet and greet. Beautifully done.

    Very fun game with an excellent story! The only problem is that the gameplay is really fun, but the story is short. More levels, even just free play ones with a lot to collect could be more fun! It's pretty obvious why there are so many clones, but this one is the cream of the "Collecting things in a hole" crop!

    in short: i really looked forward to this game more than i enjoyed it. It was by no means a bad game, i really did like it. the story was really cute and i love the concept. the art is beautiful, i love the music, all of it. it’s great. but it’s too easy and WAY too short. i mean, for $5, you expect a lot more on a mobile game. a $5 game on mobile is a lot for most people. and i really hate to say, but i’ve thoroughly enjoyed free games for much longer than this lasted me. now if we could get one with some more content and some more challenging puzzles, or really anything more, it would be a lot more satisfying. This was a cute game, but not really worth $5 in my opinion, and i hate to say this about a good indie title that had this much work into it, but i really don’t think this one deserved game of the year. it just leaves you feeling like you missed half the game, wondering “i wonder how much longer 5 games that cost $1 would last me” i hate to be so negative because i really did enjoy it. but i think it was mostly hype, and not enough content.
  • Oddly satisfying, want more!! Sep 1, 2018

    By JenniPoP
    I loved the game, loved the story. It was nonsensical and fun! It’s weirdly satisfying swallowing everything up. I beat the game rather quickly, I just wish there was more! I played through twice hoping to find something I missed the first time but alas, no Easter eggs that I could find. I’ll keep looking out for updates, and maybe quests or objectives for beaten levels (hint hint!)? Maybe an order to swallow up objects, time goals, etc. Definitely not for the first play through though, as part of the fun is taking your time immersing yourself in the story and fun of growing and destroying, and adding other objectives to think about would take away from the initial experience. But I hope they make some incentives to play through again! I’ve been enjoying playing random levels here and there but want something to work for. I guess I’m just sad it’s over! Great game, I love it and so does my 5 year old. Definitely a WIN!!!

    Was expecting it to be shorter than it actually was, based on other reviews... Regardless, I was looking forward to it ending since I was about 50% done with it. The "puzzles" are mindless and easy. Story is meh. Not really worth it even at two dollars.
  • Not Worth the Price Aug 30, 2018

    By ravingdaving1275
    I really wanted to like Donut County. The art and gameplay was seemingly right up my alley and it felt somewhat unique. However, I left the game feeling like I was missing something. First of all, $5 is way too expensive for this game. I finished it in an hour and for a puzzle game, the puzzles were extremely easy. I went into the game expecting well done and challenging physics based puzzles. Instead, I only got a hint of that. There was so much potential from the elemental-based puzzles, but nothing different is ever done with them. The difficulty level of the game stays constant, at about a preschool level. Donut County is more of an interactive visual novel than a game, which would be fine if the story had any depth. Instead, the story is just a cutesy, pointless wall of text that I found myself clicking through. If this had been a $2 game, I think it would’ve been worth the price, but I seriously expected a lot more for $5, especially from a game that’s currently #1 in the puzzle section. Donut County can be summed up as lackluster in every thing that it tries to pride itself on.
  • Too much dialog, too little gameplay Feb 18, 2019

    By Kahlandad
    You move a hole along the ground and swallow things up. The more you swallow, the bigger the hole gets, so if you want to swallow up that car or house, you need to progress by first swallowing up those small rock and plants. There are a few puzzles to solve, but they are so simple that I am conflicted to even call them puzzles. The gameplay doesn’t really progress much past what I’ve described. Between levels you are treated to cutscenes. At first I thought they were cute, but they lack any real content... and they are LONG... way too long. It wasn’t very far into the game that I found myself clicking as quickly as I possibly could to skip the incredibly long cutscenes. The graphics are well done and the concept is sorta unique, but it seems like the developer came up with a good idea for a game and didn’t really know what to do with the concept. I am puzzled how this game has won as many awards as it has. Is it cute? Yes. Is it unique? Sorta. Is it a game that’s worth $5? IMHO, absolutely not.

    It's not a puzzle game, it's a story based interactive thing. You are a hole and you do in fact swallow things up like it shows but the game play takes a back seat as this is a narrative game.
  • Too Short for What It’s Worth Sep 4, 2018

    By iReniel
    For $5, you wouldn’t expect a game this simple, short, and actually disappointing. There were only a few challenges when playing the game and that’s where it starts feeling like a rip off. There’s no real challenge give or take a few moments. And because of this ease, you blast right through the game and it ends somewhere really far from what a $5 game feels like it should’ve ended. You’re left wanting more as you just roam around at the end only having NEW GAME as your next option to have the same fun that drew you in. But then you just experience the same game again. And again. And again. I agree with the other reviews—this is a $0.99 game, not a $4.99 one; it’s priced as a meal, but sadly it’s just a snack. The jokes are funny and relatable, but the overall finished product feels unsatisfactory like it needs more story and game content.

    It's really good on other platforms but I couldn't play it because my finger blocks me from seeing what I'm doing. If there was a way to offset the hole from where you're touching, it would be perfect.

    my housemate and I are still cackling, hours later, about the line “it’s one thing to own a chicken, but two chickens...that’s two things.” all the jokes are absolutely top-notch and not in a Weird Twitter kind of way in an observational humor and non-human priorities kind of way that will age really well and still be funny years and years from now. watching things fall into the Hole (tm) is deeply satisfying. buildings fracture along believable load bearing lines when you stick part of the Hole (tm) under them. watching long skinny things topple in longways is also very very good. everything is so beautifully, lovingly rendered. this is one of the few low-poly style games that gets lighting Right. the soundtrack is a bop. It took me about an hour and a half over two sittings on my iPad to play this and it did get very hot, but! my iPad is a mini 2 and is very old. play this game. eat the world.

  • Great but short Jun 20, 2020

    By Phill Roy
    This game is downright revolutionary. For some strange reason swallowing the world up with a hole that gets bigger after everything you consume is satisfying and fun. The characters are memorable and i really love the development and story line. The puzzles are super great and unique and you feel really good when you complete them. The final boss puzzles were good, but I found them a bit lacking. The overall idea of getting the keys from some rooms to unlock others was a good idea, but the second key wasn’t a challenge. You just went to the next room and grabbed it. The boss fight was also pretty easy, and really short, as is the rest of the game. We just need more. A sequel, maybe an update with more levels. Anything. This game needs something to keep continuing the gameplay, as the levels are aren’t very fun to play again.
  • Have a Garbage Day! Dec 5, 2018

    By AnAveragePlayer555
    Donut County is easily one of the best games on the App Store. With all of the free to play trash on mobile, it is always nice to get a game that you can buy once and just play it. Donut County is exceptional with its great gameplay, creative mechanics, and energetic characters! Some people complain that the game is too short, but I like that this game can be beaten in a couple of hours so it can leave you with a short and sweet experience. I think that the game is so good, that I might even replay the whole thing. You guys are talented and care about your games, which seems to be less of a reality for most video game, and especially mobile game studios. Overall, this game is brilliant and is a must buy for anyone with a capable phone. I hope this game does like hot cakes, because more people need to play this!

    Ok, so basically the game is very beautiful with lovable, adorable characters and the game play is almost addicting BUT for a game that costs 4.99 you would expect it to last you a while, especially it being an indie title but that was not the case here sadly. The game is easily completable 2 times over in a single day if you wanted to. Not only that but the game play is more limited than i expected although i guess i should’ve expected that in story game. By “limited” i mean, i expected you to be able to free roam the whole town maybe after completing the story mode but that was not the case. After complaining the game you can replay past levels which are pretty short and not something i’ve ever felt like doing again. If a “free roam” feature was added, i think that would make this game something i could go back on and play every now and then. overall i would recommend this to a friend if only the price was much lower given its current version

    The game itself is fantastic and play smooth. The story pieces between the levels are fun and well done. By itself feels like an anti-katamari (i.e. you must make things fall into your hole to make it bigger). The only reason I'm only giving 4 stars is that while it is fun it is waaay to short. More levels please!

    Very fun game with an excellent story! The only problem is that the gameplay is really fun, but the story is short. More levels, even just free play ones with a lot to collect could be more fun!

  • Totally unique Apr 7, 2019

    By Tagequa
    This game is great. I’ve never played any thing like it. I Had heard it was good but wasn’t sure about it. But I bought it anyways. And sure enough I loved it. The idea of the player being the hole is so creative. But it’s not just a random gameplay mechanic. It has a reason in the story. I was unsure wether being a hole would fun but it is. It has a few interesting puzzles such as the catapult where you can launch items or people that you have swallowed out of the hole. But the characters are where this game really shines they are very interesting , Likable and fun to listen to. the conversations in this game are as if the friends were texting each other. I know It sounds terrible but it can be pretty fun. The only reason I’m giving it a 4 and not a 5 is that I wish it was longer and it had a few missed jokes. All in all if you’re looking for a compelling, wacky and fun experience you will find that all here.

    Great little game with a ton of charm. The art style and writing are both excellent. My only criticism is that it's not compatible with a Samsung stylus, so my ant sausage finger took up a ton of screen real estate when playing.
  • Fun and whimsical, though short Aug 28, 2018

    By Zalaton
    This game delivers pretty much what you'd expect: you play as a hole, swallowing up various objects in different painterly environments. The art style is delightful, the physics are good for the setting, and some of the puzzles are amusing - though all are very easy. There's only one way to finish any given level, which is (unsurprisingly) swallowing everything in it, sometimes with a physics puzzle or two first. I wasn't crazy about the story; the writing style seemed to me to be a little too in love with itself, particularly the way the characters often talked in texting slang. It was hardly offensive, though, just not really my thing. The whole game can be completed in a few hours, and sadly once you're done there's nothing left to do but replay the story. I'd love it if there were some kind of exploratory/sandbox mode, or perhaps some new challenges to complete in each level's setting. Really, I'd welcome any option that would allow me to spend more time swallowing up stuff in Donut County's charming environments. I don't regret my purchase, but I'm hopeful the developers will add something new and open-ended to give me a reason to come back to it.

    Fun narrative game with light puzzle gameplay. The story is cute, but it's a short linear 2-hour game with no replayability.
  • Great 4 hour game Sep 6, 2018

    By ririney
    I beat and unlocked everything within 4 hours. If it wasn’t for the fact that the game was beautiful in every single way I would of given it 2 Stars. It needs and screams for more levels. You start at level 9? Where is the progress before that? I get that fits into the story but the story honestly wasn’t what kept me playing and I felt like there was just as much dialogue as there was gameplay. I was only mildly stumped twice on the last two levels but I didn’t expect much of a challenge anyways because the game has kind of a kid feel to it. All in all if your 8-14 this game is great, beautiful and comical. Not much of a time waister.

    It's an interesting concept, but calling it a puzzle game is a bit of a stretch. The game is way too short for the regular asking price and doesn't seem to have much replay value. I personally didn't find the story all that engaging and found it irritating that there wasn't a way to skip the long dialogue.
  • A Pleasant, but Short-Lived Experience Feb 4, 2019

    By EverbrightENG
    Story-based mobile games have a pretty standard problem with post-game retention, or in other terms, the ability to keep the player entertained after the story is finished. For 4.99, you'd expect Donut County to tackle this issue, but it really doesn't. Donut County is an aesthetically pleasing game with neat mechanics and it excels in providing a fairly great experience. The problem is that the experience lasts no more than an hour and a half and there's very little replay value. The puzzles aren't very challenging despite the number of elements included in each level and the story itself relies more on being Quirky™️ than being well-written. Is it a bad game? Not by any means, it's just not something I feel happy about spending 5 dollars on. This is the type of game you download, play once, delete, and forget about for maybe five or six months until you find it again one day and play a level or two again out of boredom. That's not a five dollar experience for a mobile game in my eyes. So, overall? 3/5. An average score for an above-average game that seems like it thinks a bit too highly of itself.

    in short: i really looked forward to this game more than i enjoyed it. It was by no means a bad game, i really did like it. the story was really cute and i love the concept. the art is beautiful, i love the music, all of it. it’s great. but it’s too easy and WAY too short. i mean, for $5, you expect a lot more on a mobile game. a $5 game on mobile is a lot for most people. and i really hate to say, but i’ve thoroughly enjoyed free games for much longer than this lasted me. now if we could get one with some more content and some more challenging puzzles, or really anything more, it would be a lot more satisfying. This was a cute game, but not really worth $5 in my opinion, and i hate to say this about a good indie title that had this much work into it, but i really don’t think this one deserved game of the year. it just leaves you feeling like you missed half the game, wondering “i wonder how much longer 5 games that cost $1 would last me” i hate to be so negative because i really did enjoy it. but i think it was mostly hype, and not enough content.

    Very fun game. But a little short for the price. What would make up for the price though would be after completing the story line that you can access a free mode where you just keep getting bigger and bigger until you can absorb a whole town. Maybe add some goals to that. If more end game content would be added no problem. For now 3 stars and if end game content is added 5 stars.

    I'm hoping theyll be addition content added, because it is a very short game even if you do read all the very long-winded, unskipable conversations
  • Great game! Not $5 great... Aug 30, 2018

    By AGibbs.
    The gameplay itself is ok in terms of how fun it is, but what kept me playing was the story. Sucking things into holes got monotonous quick, but the story and easy, but different, quirks that the levels had were pretty cool. Especially after you unlock the 1 gadget. The game took about 60-90 minutes to beat, and once you finish the story there is nothing else unless you want to start over. Would be a great $0.99 game, $5 for a 90 minute game feels like a waste to me. But congrats, you got my money. The music is very well put together, and I thought the way the characters interacted was pretty cool. They used a lot of texting slang, but the whole game was very lighthearted so it wasn’t a bother. Gave it a 3/5 mostly because of the very high price. Would change to a 5/5 if a lot more content is added.
  • Great game but ends very quickly Dec 6, 2018

    It’s hard not to immediately give donut county a 5 star review. The visuals are stunning, the story is impressive, and the gameplay is simple but fun. Sadly, I can’t give it the five stars I would give an app like this normally because of the price. This game takes maybe 2 hours to play all the way through and once you’re done it has very little replay value (except maybe to chuckle at some of the jokes). There’s not really an arcade mode or anything so once you’re done you’re really done. This has kind of been echoed by other reviews but basically when people pay 5 dollars for a game, they expect something that will engage them for longer (I think stardew valley is like 8 and Minecraft is like 7). I love this app and would easily rate it 5 stars if only it was longer

    Was expecting it to be shorter than it actually was, based on other reviews... Regardless, I was looking forward to it ending since I was about 50% done with it. The "puzzles" are mindless and easy. Story is meh. Not really worth it even at two dollars.
  • Not Worth the Price Aug 30, 2018

    By ravingdaving1275
    I really wanted to like Donut County. The art and gameplay was seemingly right up my alley and it felt somewhat unique. However, I left the game feeling like I was missing something. First of all, $5 is way too expensive for this game. I finished it in an hour and for a puzzle game, the puzzles were extremely easy. I went into the game expecting well done and challenging physics based puzzles. Instead, I only got a hint of that. There was so much potential from the elemental-based puzzles, but nothing different is ever done with them. The difficulty level of the game stays constant, at about a preschool level. Donut County is more of an interactive visual novel than a game, which would be fine if the story had any depth. Instead, the story is just a cutesy, pointless wall of text that I found myself clicking through. If this had been a $2 game, I think it would’ve been worth the price, but I seriously expected a lot more for $5, especially from a game that’s currently #1 in the puzzle section. Donut County can be summed up as lackluster in every thing that it tries to pride itself on.
  • Too much dialog, too little gameplay Feb 18, 2019

    By Kahlandad
    You move a hole along the ground and swallow things up. The more you swallow, the bigger the hole gets, so if you want to swallow up that car or house, you need to progress by first swallowing up those small rock and plants. There are a few puzzles to solve, but they are so simple that I am conflicted to even call them puzzles. The gameplay doesn’t really progress much past what I’ve described. Between levels you are treated to cutscenes. At first I thought they were cute, but they lack any real content... and they are LONG... way too long. It wasn’t very far into the game that I found myself clicking as quickly as I possibly could to skip the incredibly long cutscenes. The graphics are well done and the concept is sorta unique, but it seems like the developer came up with a good idea for a game and didn’t really know what to do with the concept. I am puzzled how this game has won as many awards as it has. Is it cute? Yes. Is it unique? Sorta. Is it a game that’s worth $5? IMHO, absolutely not.
  • Too Short for What It’s Worth Sep 4, 2018

    By iReniel
    For $5, you wouldn’t expect a game this simple, short, and actually disappointing. There were only a few challenges when playing the game and that’s where it starts feeling like a rip off. There’s no real challenge give or take a few moments. And because of this ease, you blast right through the game and it ends somewhere really far from what a $5 game feels like it should’ve ended. You’re left wanting more as you just roam around at the end only having NEW GAME as your next option to have the same fun that drew you in. But then you just experience the same game again. And again. And again. I agree with the other reviews—this is a $0.99 game, not a $4.99 one; it’s priced as a meal, but sadly it’s just a snack. The jokes are funny and relatable, but the overall finished product feels unsatisfactory like it needs more story and game content.

    It's not a puzzle game, it's a story based interactive thing. You are a hole and you do in fact swallow things up like it shows but the game play takes a back seat as this is a narrative game.

    Donut county on Android is broken. Sometimes my save file just disappears for no reason. I hope there's an update to fix this issue
