Title
Donut County is a silly and very short casual puzzle game. Each mission sees you deliver a "donut", by which its understand as a growing hole in the ground, and you wreck each location by swallowing up smaller to larger objects. Some levels have some very easy and simple puzzles, others are just about swalling everything on sight. Its similar in concept to Katamari Damacy.

As puzzle game this is pretty poor, the game is enjoyable however because of how much cute charm the dev was able to inject into the game. From the cartoonish artstyle, the animations, the teenage dialogue done well, its all heart warming stuff. If the game lasted for longer than the 1 hour it takes to beat it it would get hold fast, but as it stands it makes for an enjoyable short playthrough.

Title
Donut county is a game that is very unique in its own way. While it is successful at what it is trying to do, it doesn't feel like anything more than that. There is no real challenge that comes with this game, and while I think that is what the developers were going for, it can be a bit stale at times. The dialogue portions are also a pain in the neck to get through. But overall, I do think Donut County is a relaxing, fun and short game to get through. With the length time of only a few hours, you can get through the whole story line in one sitting. But, the short story line also gives it little to no replay-value. I don't think that the fact that the game is so easy is necessarily a bad thing. It makes the game more relaxing and easier to get through. While I do think it has its flaws, Donut County is a good, short game that is relaxing and it achieves the calm aesthetic very well.

Title
I'm all for games that have a chill, laidback atmosphere but Donut County is just not engaging. It can be a fun little distraction in moments but it never feels like anything that'll challenge you even the slightest. And good god, the dialogue was grating, and when it makes up almost half the game it's difficult to get through to the slightly fun parts. If you can play for a low price then go ahead, otherwise it's a difficult one to recommend.

Title
A nice, fun, and relaxing little game - and the perfect length at only a few hours too. Nothing too special gameplay-wise, very katamari-esque, but it was nice to play on lazy days. Dialogue and characters are cute too. Overall a very enjoyable game, while nothing revolutionary.

    Lo jugué gracias al Game Pass, y me encantó!!! Es muy lindo y tonto, y la música es la que más me enganchó de principio a fin. Definitivamente me lo compraría, más si es época de ofertas!!!
