When I thought about reviewing Noby Noby Boy, the first thing I thought was that everyone would review this unusual gem the usual way, with a score, and all that crap. Well lets leave that kind of thing to the IGN’s, GameSpots, and 1Up’s of the world. Instead, I asked a friend’s 4-Year-Old daughter a few distilled questions about the game.
Her words are blockquoted and my questions are in bold. Occasionally, she performed nonverbal actions, those are in italics.
What is “Noby Noby Boy”?
It’s a game. Noby Noby Boy! (Does a jump.) You eat stuff and poop it out. You can create a new map. Falling off the earth and coming up the chimney, too. I like eating fruit from that crazy world.
Is “Noby Noby Boy” fun?
Yes. Poop it out is the most fun.
If your cat were in “Noby Noby Boy” what would he say?
“I’m pretending I’m a worm.”
What do you think of the character, “Boy”?
I think he is happy. I like to eat flowers. I don’t like to eat houses.
Have you zoomed out and seen “Girl”, what do you think of her?
Yes. I like talking to her
Is there anything else you want to say about the game, “Noby Noby Boy”?
I like the ballerinas dancing on me. I liked when the fairy came and said ‘loading’, ‘now loading’, ‘loading’, ‘now loading’.
There you have it, Noby Noby Boy reviewed by a 4-Year-Old Girl, and I think she did a better job than most of the 20+ Year-Old “Game Journalists” with a smaller wordcount, to boot. Also, from now on the game will be referred to as “Poop it out”.
