Wow, I had so much more fun with Donut County than I expected. The trailer gave me “Katamari” vibes with a lovely art style and a new concept. You start each level as a small hole and you absorb items that fit in that hole so the hole gets bigger. This way you’re clearing out each level. A lot of levels had a twitch or a new mechanic to make it more interesting than just the basic principle.
There is a lovely story that will lead you through all the different levels. The game isn’t that long, and I was kinda sad when it ended because I had so much fun, but on the other side, I’m very grateful that this game didn’t overstay its welcome and ended before it became boring. My only complaint would be that the base price of €11,49 is very high for a game that is only 2/3 hours long.
About the achievements, Donut County has no missable because of level selection. I just played through the game and mopped up the missing achievement afterward. It has a lot of fun achievements where you have to do something special in a specific level, most of those are very early in a level, so going back for those didn’t feel like a hassle.
I enjoyed this lovely and very creative game so much and was able to complete it in one sitting.
