Our overall verdict "silver"

Hungry? Well Q Games and Double Eleven have been slaving over a hot stove and are ready to dish out a soup-erb dish for dinner time under the moniker of Nom Nom Galaxy. What am I banging on about? Grab your can opener reader, we’re going on a journey to a galaxy far, far away…

Like a great meal, Nom Nom Galaxy doesn’t use just one ingredient, it uses many. Pigeonholing it into a specific genre is tricky. Sandbox exploration, building and maintaining an out of this world soup factory is the key. Chuck in some platforming and tower defence elements and it’s Bon Appetit. You’ll make your way through destructible environments, using your astro-buzzsaw to chop up the planet as you decipher the best place to build your soup factory. Think Terraria with um…soup. You can move and mess with the landscape in order to expand soup production anywhere on the planet, but there’s a lot more to it than that.

Flat out explaining Nom Nom Galaxy is incredibly difficult. There is a staggering amount to it. You’ll have a lot on your plate that’s for sure. There are rival soup companies, aliens, robots, online co op – it’s the most bonkers cookbook you could ever shake a DS4 at. I’d be lying if I said I fully understood what was going on. And I mean that in a good way. It’s kind of like going on a night out and knowing you had an amazing time but not really being able to remember any of it. It’s also beautiful to look at too. The presentation alone would have Mary Berry taking Paul Hollywood out the back for a quick game of having your cake and eating it. I’ll leave you with that mental image…

CONCLUSION
During my time in Nom Nom Galaxy, I barely had a bloody clue what was going on. And you know what? I really enjoyed myself. We should do this again sometime.
