You can tell that this game is a labor of love. The visual style, the puzzle logic, and the spiritual themes come together to make Gorogoa a mesmerizing experience. There are no words to tell a story; instead picture vignettes move in and out to form a rather hazy, but fitting, frame for a search that is shared by spiritual people.
The puzzles are innovative. Even when the novelty of the logic wears out, the puzzles continues to give your brain a tease, and are continually enjoyable. The game itself is not lengthy at all, however. I think the short duration plays to the game's advantage. The game doesnt' overstay its welcome, and even as you draw close to the end, everything remains fresh and lush.
The main appeals of the game are its graphics and style, and its puzzles and spiritual theme. The downside to Gorogoa is its length, plus the fact that there are not really any characterization of characters. The people in the game remains generic, stock stand-ins for the spiritual seekers. All in all, as a puzzle game, Gorogoa is superb. Try it for the unique style of graphics and style of puzzles and fall in love with the spiritual atmosphere of the game!
