Gorogoa App Reviews

Totally worth the small fee! It was challenging and clever! I have yet to enjoy a game as much as this one! I highly recommend this game!

What the fruit?

I didn’t realize I would be missing the particular eccentricity needed for this “game”. Not the biggest waste of 5 bucks in my life, but useless nonetheless.

Absolutely brilliant!

Gorogoa is an outstanding puzzle game if that is what you are seeking. However, it is also so, so much more... In Gorogoa, the beautiful depth of the human mind is artfully explored through a journey wrought with symbolic colors and imagery. It showcases our unique cognitive abilities to recall reality while simultaneously keeping us safe from that which we cannot handle. Such confabulation is witnessed in a mythical, yet almost religious, experience, thus serving the designer’s intended absence of any speaking or use of language as even more universal. The ending was my only disappointment, but even this was done with an inspiration reminiscent of a beautifully colored bow tied neatly around Pandora’s box. I cannot wait to see what else Jake Roberts creates.

Didn’t follow the game?

App Store recommendation after playing all “The Rooms.” Yet just didn’t get the sequencing for the game flow. Beautiful game but no tutorial or way to grasp what it’s all about. Waist of time in the end.

Wish it had iCloud syncing support

Started the game on my iPhone and fell in love with it. Decided I wanted to continue on my iPad but there’s no synced progress. Don’t really feel like starting over.

Boring and no redeeming qualities

It’s like reading a dumb puzzle book to a blind person...does that make sense. No, neither does this game. Couldn’t explain to you why it exists or how come people like it. It’s not cathartic or enjoyable in any way...it’s just a huge waste of time and you should do literally anything else and have a better time

Beautiful, original, short

Well designed with excellent mechanics. Beautiful world that meshes with mechanics very well. Was expecting more than three hours of gameplay though. No replay value due to linearity.

Wonderful and immersive!!

While it could have benefited from a bit more of a story the game play and solutions were imaginative and engrossing...loved loved loved...more please!!

Excellent game

Elegant and interesting puzzles with a novel approach. No hints necessary, just take a break for a day when you’re stuck and let it marinade. Looking forward to #2.

Too short

I loved the game and the graphics are beautiful but it was over in less then a day. I just wish there was more and that is why I only gave 4 stars. That being said, I wish I knew of more games like this.

Keeps crashing!!

This game is amazing, but my only problem is that the game crashes at a certain point. I can't go further than that, and that's frustrating because I really enjoy the game. Please fix whatever bug is causing this to happen.


This is a supremely creative game that goes beyond the usual puzzles, takes you from one layer to another, requires you to do things that are not intuitive, and keeps you discovering and gasping with delight, each time you find your way past an obstacle to the next brilliantly conceived, carefully woven together, conundrum! This is one of my FAVES!!!

A leap forward in gaming

It’s like being inside of the mind of artist.

Not enough game play

This game was awesome. My biggest complaint is for the price there is not enough game play. I beat it in a few hours.

Need glasses and an instruction manual

While visually stunning this game leaves the user to wonder what to do and how to interact. Without clear direction, I was aimlessly selecting, dragging, and trying to figure out just the basic functionality - let alone then”puzzle.” The biggest puzzle is how to play ... rather than discrete puzzles or logic challenges. I would give it a single star - except graphically the game is stunning. Also - if you are older as I am - you will need reader glasses.


Is there a way too enlarge the pictures in this game. I can’t see any of the written words and can’t see some of the details in a 3/4 “ picture !

Beautiful. Clever. Short.

Just that.


This game doesn’t work easily for iPhone X.. The problem is when I want to change the page the notifications show up with it!!


At first, it is a little confusing, but overtime you start to understand the idea of the game. It is beautifully made and logical. While I did look online to understand the meaning, I realized that it is open to interpretation, and it made me review over the game and allowed me to come up with my own story of how the whole game unfolds. Loved it and the visual effects were impeccable.

Too short !

I want more .......

So unique

I have honestly never played anything like this, and I have played a LOT of games. You should definitely, definitely try it out.


Playing this game feels like being in my dreams. The connections between the pictures and the amazing art make this one of my all time favorites.

Beautiful Challenge

Fantastical, imaginative, and unlike anything I have ever seen! I truly hope there are plans for another.

Don't understand the hype

This game was a huge let down for me. All I've read about is how amazing it is, but the game didn't become intuitive until the last 2 chapters or so. Prior to that, I was just touching and moving things hoping something would happen without having any idea why it was happening. If the whole game had been like the last couple chapters, I'd probably give a 4 star review. It loses one star off the bat because, even with me stumbling through it and using trial and error for 70% of the game, I still finished it in a couple hours. It was too short especially for the cost. I think there was a good idea by the creators, but a lot of it got lost in translation. And I'm a pretty smart person. I don't want to spend money on a puzzle game that requires absolutely no thought or intelligence, but I also want to be able to arrive at conclusions logically instead of by accident. When you're just touching and moving things hoping for a good outcome, the whole purpose of playing a game is lost.

Greatest game I’ve ever played on iPad!

This is one of the most original, fun and challenging games that I have ever played. What a masterpiece. Mesmerizing sound and beautiful artwork! I had to get a bit of help now and again because it is so different that you are not sure of the game dynamic. Once you pick I=p on the flow, you are off and running. The rare game that I just could not stop playing.


Excellent puzzle. Love it.

A gem

Beautiful, engaging, interesting, frustrating, challenging, satisfying. From the story, to the interface, to the game, play, this unique game is a true gem. Like the first day I played Monument Valley.

Fun game but not worth the cost

I just started this game today. Paid the $5 because I was told it was awesome. I was really enjoying the tasks but I completed the whole thing in a matter of hours. I expected for the price that this would continue on for quite some time. That was short-lived. Worth about a buck.

I absolutely LOVE this!!!!!!

I love puzzle games and this is by far the most amazing one I’ve played. It’s relaxing And beautifully rendered. It’s difficult and challenging enough for those who love puzzles. It also helps you out when you need it but doesn’t make it completely obvious so with a little thinking you’ll figure it out and you’ll get really excited when you get through to the next step on your adventure.:)

The game is too short

This a great puzzle game but I finished it too fast. It seemed too short. I wish the developers would add more chapters.

Excited and disappointed

This game is beautiful but it disappoints me because my progression seems like it is by accident. The ‘clues’ seem to go over my head. I’m intrigued and keep trying but I’m wondering why there is not some clue as to how far I have progressed towards the end of the chapter. This is a pricey game. Come on!! Part of me wants to delete the game. Not sure how much longer I am going to play it.

Beautiful and Intriguing

What a wonderful game. Beautiful graphics, cool puzzles. It’s quite different from any other puzzle game I’ve played. I loved the moving tiles and how things were hidden and slowly revealed. I didn’t want the game to end.

One of the best puzzle games I’ve played

A must purchase. It didn’t take long to complete but really enjoyable.

Think of it as a graphic novel...

My reason for rating so low is the length of content and that the puzzles are of the ‘poke and prod’ caliber. When it ended so soon I was upset, not because it was a short game, but because it was a $4.99 short game. And then I thought of it like a graphic novel, and it was better. Kind of like a comic book. But! But! I didn’t spend but an hour and a half playing it. The puzzles were predictable and easy. Not because of the limitations of the platform, but because they recreated a ‘Myst’ environment and prohibited you from getting lost. I consistently felt like I was being led to the solution before I had been given an opportunity to look around. So two stars it is. On cost/brevity and on ease of puzzles. Think of it like a comic book and it will ease the pain a little.

If you love Monument Valley, you’ll love this

Gorgeous game, I got the inner logic pretty quickly. Sweet and short. For the amount of detail fully worth its price.


I’m disappointed. I’m not sure what I am missing. I’m just clicking on different objects and hoping they do something. I’m stuck and can’t find my way through. I don’t see the story... the art is beautiful and I get excited when the tiles move but I wish I could get my money back. It’s made me more frustrated than relaxed. Maybe I need an explanation?? I don’t know. There are no instructions.


It’s not every day you find something that is literally its own genre. Short, satisfying, confusing, rewarding. You’ll want to replay to puzzle through the narrative a second time. Evokes the other-world ness of Myst but it’s gameplay is very different. Played it over the space of two days—would definitely play again.

Great game

A bit complicated at first, but once you understand the gameplay is a fun game

Best game I’ve played in a long time.

Innovative and beautiful. On a level with The Room and Monument Valley, although the art style and game play is as different from those as those two are from each other. It is on the short side - I played it through in one sitting - but worth the price nonetheless.

Simply amazing!

Whoever designed this game should be awarded The Truly Genius award for game design. Rarely have I found such amazement in a puzzle game as this one offers. Truly a masterpiece in every respect.


Absolutely stunning animation and creative gameplay. Also, the story really kept me engaged and really make this stand out amongst other iOS games. As with many I just wished it went on longer, which is a good sign. Well done!

Truly Beautiful

I was hesitant to buy this game because I’m not usually a fan of puzzles. I don’t have the patience, and Gorogoa helped me find the patience. I wanted to sit with each puzzle, figure it out, and also admire each scene. It didn’t take me too long to finish, but I’ve honestly found more joy in replaying it (which I’ve done 4 or 5 times now). Now that I’m familiar with the mechanics, it’s nice to go back and sit with the story that’s told. I would highly recommend. A beautiful piece of art, puzzle, and meditation.

highly enjoyable

urging for more of this type of puzzle....creative and rewarding

Loved it

From the music to the storyline this game is a masterpiece. It’s great for anybody who likes puzzles or a good story.


I love this game and wish it were longer. The graphics are everything as they have been advertised and then some. Worth the buy. It is a beautiful experience.


Drawn to the beautiful artwork of this puzzle game. Spent 2 days working through its layers and slides to navigate the character throughout his life and search to collect the 5 colors/symbols/stages. Was AMAZED to see a special thanks to Jenova Chen of Flow, Flower, and Journey fame. If you like those games, this should be a worthy deviation. Truly a labor of love and more proof that you don't have to kill anything to have a great game! Loved it!

Short but original and well done

I beat this in roughly 45 minutes, but i really wasnt unsatisfied. I may be bias on the fact that im an artist and have loved art my whole life, but i really found it to be beautiful. And the puzzle mechanics were amazing and not something ive ever come across in a game before. It was relatively challenging ( the books took me a bit to get), it has style, and i loved how everything worked with each other to make the story flow. So all in all, i wasnt bothered by the length of the game when i was actually paying attention to all the detailed artwork that went into it. Ive paid more to look through an art show for the same amount of time. So take your time, for the game has no timers, and really take a moment to look at all the artwork in this game. Creative puzzles and story aside, the art alone was worth it to me.

More games like this!

I am a sucker for puzzle games, but this one takes the cake. The amazing puzzles and artwork get me every time I open it!

Beautiful game

Very existential and sometimes dark, this unique puzzle game tells a story and gives your brain a workout all at the same time! I would love to see this developer create more games in this vein as I haven’t enjoyed a puzzle game this much in a very long time.

Terrific puzzle game

Great drawings, with very well constructed puzzles and interesting storyline for a puzzle game. This game is well deserving of the praise it has received.
