A wonderful soundtrack and great voice acting, what more could you ask for? The Gunk is a treat for the ears.
The Gunk looks fantastic, with excellent and imaginative world design, as well as great lighting and some really cool gunky physics. The art direction is also very strong, although some visuals bugs and pop-in do crop up to break the illusion from time to time.
The Gunk’s feels pretty great to control, with a satisfying vacuum mechanic, well-designed puzzles, and smart level design. At times it can be a little hard to put down.
The Gunk plays well, and offers up an intriguing narrative. But the inclusion of combat feels unnecessary and underbaked, and the latter half of the game doesn’t quite live up to the early highs, both narratively and mechanically.
The Gunk has a few fun achievements, but the list is fairly short and simple, and there’s a couple which will be a pain in the arse to pop.
